Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros Wireless Not Working / Sort It?

Jan 20, 2011

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 :: 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..

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.

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

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 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.

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 :: 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.

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros AR2413 Not Working After 11.04 Upgrade?

Jun 12, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04 about six weeks ago I've had no sufficient solution to my inability to connect to wireless. Here is a summary of the problem:

After the upgrade, nm is running, and lspci detects my wireless controller (Atheros AR2413 802.11b/g), but nm can only sporadically detect/connect to wireless networks. Essentially what happens is that upon startup, I have to wait (sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes hours) for the computer to "decide" that it wants to detect the networks, at which point I can connect. After this it is fine; it doesn't disconnect after this point, but more often than not it takes so long to start working that I might as well not use the computer.

I've tried "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network", to no avail. I should mention that I also run under the Gnome Classic UI, because Unity is one of the worst UI changes I've ever seen in a version. I've read that Unity causes some problems with NM, but I have no corroborating evidence of this, and the problem persists even without using the Unity UI.

Someone recommended using an older kernel, but the file "menu.lst" doesn't even exist in the /boot/grub folder, so I have no idea how I would do that.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros Wireless Card Can See Networks But Can't Connect

May 30, 2010

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

Ubuntu Networking :: Intermittent Wireless With Atheros AR5001X+ On Lucid?

Sep 12, 2010

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.

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.

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros 9k WiFi Card Not Working After Suspend?

Jun 25, 2010

I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. Although it has worked fine for the past couple of weeks, I have recently encountered a problem with my wireless card. It is an Atheros AR928X card on a Toshiba satellite U405D-S2874 model laptop. Recently, I attempted to put the computer into suspend mode for the first time. The computer failed to wake up, and I performed a hard reboot. After this, everything seems to work except for the wireless card. I am now unable to connect to any wireless network with my laptop, and the wireless manager doesn't seem to be working either.
