- 14.04 AR9k wireless driver reclaim 1 answer
I'm a newbie on Linux stuff and maybe the solution to my problem is obvious, but I need your help.
I decided to install Kubuntu 14.04 on my laptop (HP pavilion g6-2330sf) and the installation worked perfectly, but even if my Ethernet connection works, the wireless network refuses to be enabled.
So I spent a couple of hours trying to install drivers, NetworkManager etc... but nothing works, or should I say I can't make it work.
When typing the following command in the console
$ sudo lshw -C network I get the following output:
*-network description: Ethernet interface product: RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:06:00.0 logical name: eth0 version: 05 serial: 74:46:a0:85:dd:93 size: 100Mbits/s capacity: 100Mbits/s width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress msix vpd bus_master cap_list ethernet physical tp mii 10bt 10bt-fd 100bt 100bt-fd autonegotiation configuration: autonegotiation=on broadcast=yes driver=r8169 driverversion=2.3LK-NAPI duplex=full firmware=rtl_nic/rtl8105e-1.fw ip=************** (knowingly hidden) latency=0 link=yes multicast=yes port=MII speed=100Mbits/s resources: irq:46 ioport:2000(size=256) memory:f0204000_f0204fff memory:f0200000-f0203fff *-network UNCLAIMED description: Network controller product: AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter vendor: Qualcomm Atheros physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:07:00.0 version: 01 width:64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: memory: f0100000-f017ffff memory:f0500000-f050ffff
Furthermore when using the command
nmcli nm I get the following output:
