How do I install my wireless driver at Ubuntu 12.10? This is my driver:

$ lspci | grep Wireless

06:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

Thanks

Please run the command:

lspci -nn

Is your device Atheros Communications Inc. AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0032] (rev 01) ? If so, then the driver ath9k is already installed. Check to see if it is loaded:

lsmod

Is the wireless switch set to enable or disable wireless?

rfkill list all

Look for clues in the message logs:

dmesg | grep -e wlan -e ath
