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.

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.

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...)

CentOS 5 Networking :: Installing My Wireless Card Atheros AR9285

Aug 12, 2009

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,

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 - Samsung N150 - Atheros AR9285 - Wireless Detected But Cannot Connect

Mar 13, 2010

I have a Samsung N150 netbook with Atheros AR 9285 WiFi card. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it, although this problem happens on other distros too (Network Remix 9.10, OpenSuse 11.2) My wifi card and networks get detected. The problem is when I try to connect to my network, which is protected by WPA key (I don't know if it matters whether it's WPA or not). After I input my network key, the network manager is trying to connect, but obviously cannot, because just prompts me for password again. I can connect without problems to this network from my other computer running WinXP

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros AR9285 Not Able To Establish Connection

Feb 5, 2011

I am kind of new to linux and have installed the lucid lynx ubuntu distro (10.04) and then "upgraded" it to ubuntu studio but it still says is the lucid lynx. I got a Samsung Q430 laptop with the Atheros AR9285 wireless adapter.I have everything up and running EXCEPT my wireless card. The wireless card DOES work, it does see all the connections available, but when I choose to connect it does not, and keeps asking for the password.

Weird thing is that when I use my samsung galaxy tab as the wireless adapter for its 3G signal, it does seem to work fine (although really slow). I have tried looking for a solution, some say to just install the drivers, but ubuntu does not recognize anything to need a driver except the video card. I have installed linux-backports-modules-wireless-lucid-generic I have also tried the bleeding edge drivers.

After a while of experimenting by myself I came with the following, somewhat rudimentary. I managed to fix the problem by installing the windows wireless driver utility. Here is a tutorial on how to do it. So I just installed it, went to system/administration/windows wireless drivers and just installed it. Downloaded the file from here [URL]. It may not be the best way to fix it, but it does work. Still if you can use ethernet, don't hesitate to do it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros AR9285 Not Detected By Samsung NF310 / What To Do?

Nov 8, 2010

I recently got a Samsung NF310 netbook. It has a Broadcom 802.11n wireless card, which is not very well supported currently. In order to have reliable wireless, I switched it out with an Atheros AR9285 wifi card. The Atheros card seems to be invisible to the system. It doesn't show up in the output of lspci, and I can't find anything weird in dmesg. It's like it just doesn't exist.

At first I thought the card was just dead, but then I tried it out in my old EeePC900 and it works fine. I know the slot on the the NF310 is OK, because the original Broadcom card still works. I also determined that the NF310 isn't doing some BIOS weirdness to only us the Broadcom card, because my AR5BXB63 802.11g card works in it. (Unfortunately it's a full-length footprint, and the NF310 has a half-length Mini PCIe slot, so I can't leave it in there.)

The NF310 is running Maverick. The EeePC identifies the wifi card as:

Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) [168c:002b] (rev 01)

Anyone have any ideas what I should try next?

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....

General :: Bodhi - Internet Connection Slow/times Out: Ath9k/Atheros/TP-Link USB Wireless Dongle

Jul 31, 2011

Just re-installed Bodhi. Ran update, dist-update, set up connection and connection still slow or timing out and reporting errors in 'iwconfig'. This is 3rd re-install of this version. Have also tried 3.0 kernel and pae versions of Bodhi. Cannot get this connection up to speed and without errors. Atheros chipset ar9271.

Sorry for weird subject line and opening paragraph. Trying to make it easy to find and browse in case this gets solved and can help someone else. Not being a Linux guru, I can only hope to help others through my mistakes and ignorance.

I followed instructions to update driver listed at Linux Wireless.

In addition to following the directions at Linux Wireless, I also downloaded the GUI Program to install ath9k_htc.

No luck. My connection reports 1M/s and is reporting "invalid misc:" errors in iwconfig.

I'm running Midori browser but apt-get and wget are also downloading slowly.

I'm connecting to a Zyxel 660 series router using WPA/WPA2.

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 :: 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:

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.
