Networking :: Getting Wireless Set Up For Atheros AR9287?


I'm new to the linux community -started using Slax as of this morning. I'm having trouble getting wireless set up for my Atheros AR9287, I found that Compat Wireless should get the thing to start working.

Problem is I have no idea what I'm doing setting it up. Can anyone explain this to a total novice? Or have anything else that will get it to work?

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros Card For Laptop ( AR9287) Is Disabled?
I am not exactly sure whats wrong here, but Ubuntu 11.04 reports that the Atheros card for my laptop ( AR9287) is disabled. When I try to turn it on using fn+F3 it does not do anything. I looked around and found out about RF-Kill, tried doing the sudo rfkill unblock 0 and it did not work, I attempted that with both 1 and 0 as I also have a gigabit lan card. Though I could see the block status of the eth0 card changing, the Soft block of the wireless card did not.

I have also tried unblocking the pci_ath card in modprobe.d and that also did not work after restarting.

I am using a Acer Aspire 7551g with a Atheros wireless controller. Running Ubuntu 11.04 x64 AMD

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Your Atheros 802.11n Wireless Working In 9.1?
I spent days trying to figure out how to get my atheros AR928x 802.11n wireless card to work in Ubuntu. The card worked perfect in Windows 7 but the connection kept dropping in Ubuntu. It would find my router and connect with 60% signal for about 5 seconds, then fall down to about 25% signal and then cut out altogether. After searching for days to find a solution, I finally figured it out and figured Id post it here to let everyone else in the same boat have a working wireless too!

I found this solution from:[URL].. This solution is for JAUNTY (Ubuntu 9.04), so if you are running Jaunty, you can just follow that post. If you are using Karmic (Ubuntu 9.1), you can follow this tutorial I'm posting. It's pretty simple: First, make sure you got all your files up to date. Type in a terminal:

sudo apt-get update Let that run, and once its done, type into terminal:
sudo apt-get upgrade
Once that finished, restart your computer. Again open up terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-karmic

If you are using Jaunty, instead of karmic type in jaunty, if you use another version of ubuntu, you can find a list of versions and their names here:[URL].. Restart your computer one more time, and you should be good to go! This has been tested and confirmed to work on: -Ubuntu 9.1(karmic) with an Atheros 928x 802.11n wireless card, using the Ubuntu installed network software, in a Gateway NV53 laptop connected to a belkin 802.11n wireless router.-HP base station / 802.11g airport express

This has been tested and does not work/has issues with:

-airport extreme I hope this works for you too, and if it does, please let me know with your hardware and Ubuntu version so I can post here what other setups have been confirmed to let this work.

Networking :: Unable To Use Atheros Wireless Card On Fedora 14
This morning I installed Fedora 14 on my laptop. During the setup, I was able to configure the wireless connection and use it to install additional software from the FreshRPMs and Livna repos. When the install was completed, I was surprised to find the wireless not working. When I click on the NetworkManager icon at the bottom right corner, I see "Wireless Networks" Under that it says "device not ready" and it is greyed out so it cannot be click on.

Running lspci -vnn returned

I get: Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy. I can only see wlan0 (wmaster0, eth0), not ath0 or wifi0 mentioned elsewhere, in wireshark.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Still Drops Atheros AR9285
I bought this new computer with an Atheros AR9285 wireless adapter, signal dropped out after a couple of minutes, sometimes reconnected, I looked up different posts on [URL] and [URL].

First I installed linux-backports and linux-backports-wireless, still dropped. Then I installed compat-wireless-2.6.33 and it still dropped. Finalley I blacklisted the driver with gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath_pci.conf and it still drops. What should I do, it seems to pick it up again after 30 sec or so, but it a bit frustrating.

P.S.: It seems to be getting much better now that I have the torrent program shut down.

Fedora Networking :: Slow Wireless With Atheros AR9285?
I'm facing problems with Fedora13 and the AR9285 wifi card... the connection is just too slow, and the wired connection works fine. I just figured out that a lot of VAIO users (so am I) were in the same situation, and solved their problem by downloading ath9k drivers from linuxwireless.org. Fine, I did it! That's what I found :

Quote:

Building and installing
cd /path/to/compat-wireless-2.6.32-rc5
./scripts/driver-select <driver-name>
make
sudo make install

...but make is looking for source files in /usr/src/kernels/2.6.34-7-61.fc13.x86_64/build/ , which doesn't exist! The /usr/src/kernels/ folder is just empty. I also found something about the fact that Fedora13 didn't came with kernel's source files... So how can I install that driver? (I didn't find the package via yum...)

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04RC Atheros Wireless Not Working?
Does Ubuntu 10.04RC support Atheros AR2427 wireless card out of the box? I ran 10.04RC Netbook Live on my new Asus Eee 1001P Netbook today and it looks very impressive indeed. However, I could not get Ubuntu 10.04 to even see the Etheros AR2427 card (iwconfig). Am I doing something wrong or is there no driver to support the card? If no driver what are my options to get it working under 10.04 as I do not want to use Windows on my netbook..

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet With Atheros AR9285 (wireless)?
I've a big trouble that curses me for months. I've an Asus K52Jc laptop with wireless card Atheros AR9285, Ubuntu 10.10 and this network set-up: a WDSL (so an antenna on my house) wired to a switch; the switch shares connection through 2 ethernets cables: one to my uncle house, one to my router Netgear DG834v5.If I connect my laptop via ethernet, internet works good, if I connect to my router, wireless works (I can ping my router), but no internet. I've been helped a lot in official ubuntu chat: after some tries we understood that the problem aren't drivers, isn't Netgear, but probably it's something messed up in routes or arp cache.Anyway note that I have also some difficulties to ping my router, on 3 tries he often loses 1 or 2 packets.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros Wireless Not Working / Sort It?
I upgraded to Maverick Meerkat on my Compaq Presario CQ60 and the installation bugged killing all the documents and settings. I'm not a total n00by to Linux as I've been using it for years, but neither am I an advanced user.

Any halp you can give with this as I've tried everything I can think of to get the wireless card to work. Which basically boils down to trawling Google for the drivers and attempting to install them. code...

Ubuntu Networking :: HP G61; 10.04 Studio - Atheros 9k Wireless Not Working
lspci gives this for my ethernet hardware:

[Code]...

I have tried installing "linux-backports-modules-wireless-2.6.32-22-preempt" but I receive a notification that it failed to install properly upon rebooting... I have also tried installing compat-wireless but it fails to make because it can't find the linux kernel header directory...(I do have the headers, but how do I get the makefile to see a non-default header dir?) sudo modprobe ath9k runs, but running sudo ifconfig wlan0 up returns this error:

Networking :: Atheros Wireless Card Doesn't Get Detected In Ubuntu?
I want to load Atheros wireless card to ubuntu linux OS having kernel 2.6.32.21. I have loaded the atheros driver and I observed the following log messages when card was inserted.

[ 55.732223] pcmcia_socket pcmcia_socket0: pccard: CardBus card inserted into slot 0
[ 55.732294] pci 0000:04:00.0: reg 10 32bit mmio: [0x000000-0x00ffff]
[ 55.810152] ath5k: disagrees about version of symbol ieee80211_free_hw

[code]....

My suspect was the driver was 2.6.35.1 kernel based i may need to update my kernel, but i have other laptop having 2.6.32-21 kernel and this card works fine.

Ubuntu Networking :: Intermittent Wireless With Atheros AR5001X+ On Lucid?
I have an old Tatung tablet pc, with touchscreen, stupid speakers and an atheros wifi card (AR5001X+). With XP, everything works reasonably well, and wifi connectivity is rock solid. I know I'm asking for trouble installing *nix on this machine, but if the wireless worked, I'd be happy. However... With an updated Lucid install, I can see and connect to open, WEP, and WPA(1/2/tkip/aes/whatever) networks. I get good speeds with every network I've tried, but after a minute or two, my connection speed drops to zero, only to recover after another few minutes. A few minutes later, the wireless dies again, then reconnects....

Both the router and the tablet show that I still have a connection, and the connection speed recorded by both does not change from the 'working' condition. I get nothing in the logs (router or tablet) and no indication (aside from transfers stalling) that there's any problem. The 'network history' part of Gnome system monitor shows the data rate dropping to zero, but a network monitor applet on the gnome panel shows transmissions and (later) recieves. Reported signal strength remains constant, and seems to have no bearing on the frequency or length of the dropouts.

I've tried the stock lucid drivers, the lucid wireless backports, and madwifi (currently on madwifi) with no change to symptoms. I did think that it may be to do with scanning for networks (iwevent showed completed scans as the dropouts ended) so I removed network manager and tried static configuration with /etc/network/interfaces . The problems persited (although iwevent is now silent) and I am now using Wicd with no change.

lscpi:

Code:

sudo lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82852/82855 GM/GME/PM/GMV Processor to I/O Controller (rev 02)
00:00.1 System peripheral: Intel Corporation 82852/82855 GM/GME/PM/GMV Processor to I/O Controller (rev 02)

[code]....

I see nothing toobad in these, so I ran a longer test - I bash'd a while loop to ping the router, run ifconfig and iwconfig, and spit the results into files. I concurrently ran a wireshark capture. All of these contain a lot of text/data, so I've attached them here. I can't see any connection between the output of ifconfig/iwconfig/wireshark while the ping drops, but I'm no expert.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros Wireless Card Can See Networks But Can't Connect
I've installed it no problems on my desktop and I really love it. Now I'm trying to install it on my Satellite and I'm having a couple of problems. When trying to connect to my wireless network, I can see my network, but it will just keep asking me for my WEP. I've confirmed that there is nothing wrong with the network or the password I've provided. Sometimes when I boot up, the network manager just says that the wireless networks are disconnected and can't find any. The wired connection always works just fine.

Here are the system specs:

Toshiba Satellite M45 S169
Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS Fresh Install

Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01)
Kernel driver in use: ath5k

CentOS 5 Networking :: Installing My Wireless Card Atheros AR9285
installing my wireless card Atheros AR9285.I have tried to get it working with both compat wireless - Ath9k driver but I dont know exactly how to do.I have also tried to get it to work with ndiswrapper, but it is really tricky because nothing is available in centos like precompiled ndiswrapper.I used to work with Arch Linux so everything in Centos is totally new to me and I don�t understand a thing:I need to get it to work as soon as possible.What I have read the should go to just "activate" the ath9k driver with my card and it would work,

Networking :: Can't Get Wireless Working In Slitaz (Asus Aspire ZG5, Atheros Wifi)?
So I decided to wipe out Windows and try Slitaz. It's an awesome well featured distro for it's size. One huge problem tho: I can't get wireless to work for the life of me. I actually went as far as to manually load the ath5k module but It just refuses to recognize my wireless router, much less any nearby routers. It simply doesn't see anything when it scans for wireless networks. I have no problem with that in Puppy Lucid. But I'd really like to use Slitaz, just for it's small size and quick bootup. Can anyone PLEASE help me with that?

PS: It happened here before that I had to plea and beg for any response, so PLEASE(!!) don't let me hang like that this time.

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Laptop - Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Not Found 10.04?
I am a Windows user, and have resigned myself to the concept that when things get completely FUBAR you need to just take a deep breath and start over.

Is there a procedure to completely delete and re-install Ubuntu, or should I delete its partition altogether, and re-create and re-install it? I can do that if I really have to.

I have not accumulated enough stuff here that I could not just make a clean start, if that will fix this mess. Somehow I imagined that this would be different from Windows, but maybe it really isn't.

What holds me back is seeing the multitude of people having trouble with wireless in 10.04. Is this a widespread problem that has a good chance of really getting fixed, soon?

At the minimum, It has fallen off the radar screen, although the hotel's system might have gone down, as it often does.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Find A Driver For Wireless Card (Atheros AR928X)?
I'm trying to find a driver for my wireless card (Atheros AR928X) and I think it's ath9k what I need. As far as I know there isn't a linux driver for it, so I installed ndiswrapper to use a windows driver instead. The problem is that when I type modprobe ndiswrapper I get "bash: modprobe: command not found" (even as root). I know I'm missing something about modprobe, but I can't find any help on google. Anyway, I installed ndisgtk next, because I thought it would be easier, but when I go to System> Administration> Windows Wireless Drivers I get a message "Unknown error".Do you have any ideas on how I'll make ndiswrapper work?

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) Not Working
I have a Toshiba MX35 laptop it's a little old but does the job. I'm have a problem getting the wireless to work. I can boot a live CD either Ubuntu 10.10 or Fedora 14 and they will see the wireless card. The card is Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01).

I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed and that is the OS that is having the problem seeing the wireless. The computer will not handle Ubuntu 10.10 (at least it won't handle the desktop effects under Ubuntu 10.10) but handles them just fine under 9.10 and that's why I have 9.10 installed. I really need the Wifi to work because I'm going to travel in a few days.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros Wireless Usb Adapter - Unable To Post Messages?
I can't post messages, I think something is wring with my internet.Anyway, I'm gonna copy paste what I've been trying to say...I just bought the TP-LINK Model No. TL-WN821N. It's an atheros. And I was wondering where can I find the drivers for Linux. It only includes drivers for Windows.

I don't have much experience with networks,I found this website,

http:[url]......

I got stuck in the patch section, I don't know what they are trying to say. They are using

diff -urp compat-wireless-2009-02-22_AR9170_230209/drivers/net/b44.c compat-wireless-2009-02-22_AR9170_230209/drivers/net/b44.c

They are comparing the same file, there is some code they are showing but I don't know what they want me to do.
