I'm trying to install the ath5k driver in Maverick, but the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EeePC/Fixes#Wireless don't work. I've tried to install (sudo apt-get install) linux-backports-modules-intrepid-generic, and also linux-backports-modules-maverick-generic, but both can't be found.

Thanks for your response!


I did it:

sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-maverick-generic-wireless

then I followed the instructions on the page (modprobe etc). Works like a charm, except for another question I'm starting now. (Asus EeePc Fn+F2 wrecks wireless until restart)
