    Post Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG not workign on 14.04

    So I recently installed Xubuntu on my laptop, dualbooted with Windows.

    Everything works perfectly on the Windows side, but in Xubuntu, for some reason it doesn't either recognise or it can't access my network card so I can't connect to the wifi. I have updated the Kernel and Ubuntu itself (with the sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade) , I have checked for drivers on the manufacturer website(it's a Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG).

    I know almost nothing about Linux and Ubuntu so I am clueless on how to solve this but I really need it to work as fast as possible so all help would be highly appreciated.

    If you want a faster response, re-post this on the Networking and Wireless forum - and find the wireless script pinned to the top of that forum and run it and post the results in your new thread. If you don't, the first response will ask you to do it anyway.
