Ubuntu Networking :: Get Your Atheros 802.11n Wireless Working In 9.1?

Jan 11, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04RC Atheros Wireless Not Working?

Apr 24, 2010

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..

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Atheros Card Not Working Properly Anymore?

Jan 12, 2011

A wifi card with the ath5k driver used to work properly until a couple of weeks ago. Now, if I ping the router the response times sometimes are okay but often fluctuate into the range of many hundreds or thousands of milliseconds. Occasionally the connection breaks down entirely.My laptop, which uses a different card, works fine (typical ping response times of 2 ms), so its probably not the router which is faulty.I use opensuse 11.3 x86_64, currently with the 2.6.34.7-0.7 desktop kernel and knetworkmanager

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) Not Working

Mar 3, 2011

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.

Networking :: Can't Get Wireless Working In Slitaz (Asus Aspire ZG5, Atheros Wifi)?

Sep 17, 2010

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.

Hardware :: Atheros AR242x Wireless On Compaq CQ60 - Internet Connection Not Working

Apr 24, 2009

After several hours of frustration to point of almost scrapping linux alltogether I was finally able to get my wireless networking to work in Linux Mint 6. I searched for hours and came up with several different suggestions that were supposed to fix my problem - NONE OF THEM WORKED! As a new linux user, I can completely understand why so many people try linux and then give up on it. It should not be so hard to get a wireless internet connection working.

Said another way - the people making distros should read these forums and see what difficulties are experienced and work on fixing them. In any event - I want to post my solution to the problem for my COMPAQ CQ60-211DX so that anyone else who wants to try linux on this model laptop will save a great amount of time. Here are the steps I took to get linux mint 6 to work on my laptop:

1. Open terminal window
2. Type - lspci | grep Atheros
3. Hit the enter key

If you see: Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)

then these instructions WILL get your AR242x (AR5007) wireless card to work for you. Be warned - I tried everything I read including ndiswrapper, etc. - none of it worked! You will need to click the menu button go to all applications and then administration. From there, select hardware drivers and look for anything that has Atheros in it. CLICK DEACTIVATE! Now you will have to restart your computer. When it starts back up....

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros "ath5k" Wireless Not Working?

I've followed a few different steps to try and solve the wireless issue, but no luck so far. I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 with Atheros 5001 "ath5k" driver and module. I use "WPA & WPA 2 Personal" security.I first did "rfkill list all" to see what was being blocked, and at the time, I had this:Quote:

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Painfully Slow Wireless Throughput On Atheros AR5001 Card

Aug 12, 2010

I have a Acer Revo R3610 nettop on which I installed oS11.3. It has an Atheros AR5001 wireless network adaptor.I'm getting very bad latency and throughput on with this card. In comparison my Thinkpad with Intel card achieves at least 10 times the throughput from the same location. Also when I boot my wifi will come up authenticate and then a few seconds later disconnect and reconnect. I've tried updating the kernel to 2.6.35 as one of the fixes was to improve the performance of the ath5k driver. I'm using wpa2 authentication.

Here are some details:

Code:

mediacentre:~ # /sbin/lspci -nnk
00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: nVidia Corporation MCP79 Host Bridge [10de:0a82] (rev b1)
Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device [1025:0222]

[code]....

Is there anything else I paste that will help determine the cause of the bad throughput. Browsing the web or copying files across the network is bordering unusable.

Fedora Networking :: Atheros NIC Not Working In 11?

Sep 27, 2009

I installed Fedora 11 on an Acer Aspire 5516 and everything works except my networking interface card. In Windows XP it is listed as an "Atheros Ar8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller" and it works. In Fedora 11 it is listed as "Attansic Technology Crop. unknown (OX1062)" and does not work. I have tried the default driver "ath5k" and also downloaded madwifi and modprobed "ath-pci" but I still get the same problem. What is weird is that the wireless does work. Is this chip not supported yet in Linux?

General :: Detecting Atheros Wireless Card On HP?

Sep 2, 2009

I am using Ubuntu 8.04 and when I open up my network settings, It shows my ethernet card and my modem but my wireless card doesn't show up. Under "Hardware Drivers" it says that my driver for my wireless card is a "proprietary driver" and that there is no driver I can get for it for Linux. Is there any way that I can get my wireless card to work? I tried going to the HP website and downloading a driver for it, but all of the drivers only work for Windows....

Debian Installation :: Atheros AR8151 Not Working?

May 26, 2011

I installed Debian awhile ago, but then replaced the mobo. Now my system doesn't detect the onboard LAN card, installing the windows driver fixed that problem on windows but I can't seem to find the appropriate driver for Linux.

The card is an Atheros 8151.

The problem is that my install of linux (64bit) does not recognize any adapter on the system. I went and downloaded a driver, after a make, make install, and reboot it still wasn't fixed.

I can find on this recommends downloading from some partner.atheros.com which seems defunct.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros AR5001 Not Working In 10.10?

Dec 30, 2010

I got a used computer (Toshiba Satellite A215-S5829) for Christmas, and it was running Vista *shudder* so I decided to wipe the hard drive, and install the latest Ubuntu. This is my first real foray into linux, and I've loved the system, but the only problem I've had with is so far is I can't get the wireless to work. I believe the card it has is Atheros AR5001, and I've tried installing the "madwifi" drivers, but I can't get them to register. I've been following the suggestions of dozens of different forum posts and answers I've found scattered around the internet, but I haven't been able to get anything to work correctly.

When I view the "Additional Drivers" in System > Administration, it says "Alternate Atheros "madwifi" driver: This driver is activated but in use," but when I click on the internet icon in the top panel, it only gives me the wired connection. It used to also give me the wireless option, just without ever successfully finding any wireless networks to which it could connect. Like I said, I've done about a half-dozen different things without any success.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Atheros AR8131M - Get It Working?

Aug 23, 2010

I recently purchased an MSI 740GM-P25 with an Atheros AR8131M gigabit ethernet adapter onboard. I have since discovered that it's not the easiest device to get working in CentOS (or any other distro I've tried, frankly). Anybody use this card and have instructions on how to get it working? I've got a lot of experience with Linux, but I've never been quite as good with hardware stuff as I probably should be. I've included a list of things I've already attempted below (limited as the list may be).

1) Tried both CentOS 5.5 x86_64 and Fedora 13 x86_64

2) Tried to download and compile the source code for three different Atheros drivers from their website (the Linux drivers listed here) in Fedora 13. All stated that I was using a kernel version that was unsupported (>2.4.0) when attempting to compile.

EDIT: Also, I contacted MSI directly for assistance.I got the simple yet incredibly unhelpful "we can't help you unless you use Windows" response. So there is no official support (and therefore no driver) provided by the manufacturer.

Fedora Networking :: Slow Wireless With Atheros AR9285?

Nov 3, 2010

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...)

Fedora :: Wireless On Sandy Bridge With Atheros AR2413

I'm in the process of switching back to Fedora after years of hiatus, but I can't get my wireless card working. The card itself is an Atheros AR2413, and the problem is that it seems to appear OK in various places, BUT it doesn't detect any networks. I'm on Fedora 14.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Atheros AR928X Can See Networks But Can't Connect

Sep 9, 2010

I just installed OpenSuSE 11.3 x86_64, and as I'm new to OpenSuSE I can't get my wireless to work. I believe it should work because it worked out of the box in Ubuntu (9.10 and 10.04)

At first I didn't see any network icon in the notification area, but after some googling figured out to enable NetworkManager instead of ifup. Now there is an icon, and clicking it I can see wireless networks, but when I try to connect it tries for a while, then seems to give up.

/sbin/lspci gives

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Still Drops Atheros AR9285

Mar 30, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet With Atheros AR9285 (wireless)?

Nov 5, 2010

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.
