I don't understand this very much, but I think my card wasn't even detected by the instalation.

I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 64 bits.


calsaverini@mnemosyne:~$ uname -a
Linux mnemosyne 2.6.28-13-generic #45-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 30 22:12:12 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux


I just finish a fresh install 30 minutes ago, and did nothing except for an update and tried to install madwifi when I saw my wireless wasn't working. I know my card is an Atheros 5007, which gave me some trouble to install in previous versions but was working ok on Debian Lenny.

When I try to check on my pci devices I can't find any wireless cards:

When I try iwconfig:


calsaverini@mnemosyne:~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

pan0 no wireless extensions.


No ath0 or wifi0 interfaces appear. On Debian Lenny I had a ath0 interface that was automatically detected on install.

Another command someone told me to post here as well:


calsaverini@mnemosyne:~$ sudo lshw -C Network

Anyone knows what happened?

When I was installing Ubuntu I connected the ethernet cable on my wired ethernet card. Will this preclude him from searching for a wifi interface? I hope not.:icon_frown:

I have a D-Link WDA-1320 card (Atheros chipset) with the exact same problems. I too can't find the card with lspci, etc. Any ideas?
I am running jaunty jackalope on an AMD 64 bit cpu. Could the 64 bit be the problem?
