    Exclamation Atheros AR9285 Wireless Card not working

    I have an Asus EEE PC 1005ha netbook and just upgraded to Lucid Beta 1. Everything seems to work just fine but my wireless adapter is disabled. I ran system testing and it shows up there but I cant enable it. I already installed linux-backports-modules-wireless-lucid-generic but still doesn't work. I love the new features but that is just killing me. Wired works though.


    Can anyone help!? I'm pulling out my hair now! Thanks!

    I'm not having any issues since installing Beta 1 and applying all updates since. Have you checked in the BIOS that your wireless card is enabled (F2 at the grey Asus screen on power up)?

    Duh! That solves the problem....

    For some reason, it was disabled under BIOS. It was working fine in Karmic, but after the update it wasn't working anymore. Well, that makes me love Ubuntu even more!

    Thanks barrieluv!
