    hmm not sure what out of the box means but when i did a clean install of Ubuntu 11.10 (when it was released) my wna1100 was up and ready
    i put my card in the usb slot then did the install and when it was done wireless networks were available for use.

    Re: Program to install ath9k_htc (Atheros Linux Driver)

    I am very frustrated. Let me present the situation. Ubuntu 10.10, clean install (some while ago).

    From this URL--

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/ath9...2010.10-fixed/

    --I downloaded this .deb package:

    ath9k_htc-installer.1.0.1-maverick-fixed.deb 2010-10-18

    I double-clicked it, Software Center came up, I clicked Install, and it installed right off. I then went to the menu and activated the installer program, which appeared to run fine, then rebooted.

    In fact, everything looks fine, except that the WNA1100 blue light doesn't come on, and Network Manager reports no wireless connections.

    My Linux kernel is 2.6.35-31-generic (the latest, I believe). Here are the outputs of some of the commands I see often wanted for diagnostics:

    @owlcroft
    Strange, must be works!
    Maybe you can try with the last driver changes.
    For how to see here http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...8&postcount=47
    and then reboot, and see if it works!

    Re: Program to install ath9k_htc (Atheros Linux Driver)

    Well, I looked more closely and I am not at present using compat-wireless, and I do have the very latest kernel installed. I am reluctant to add compat-wireless in when, from its documentation, it appears intended only to provide backwards support for older kernels.

    From the various data readouts above, is there anything at all that doesn't look right?

    Re: Program to install ath9k_htc (Atheros Linux Driver)

    Hello,

    It seems to me that I am in a situation similar to post 42, since I have a clean 10.04 32 bit install. It's on an old computer (evo n800v). It's also a netgear WNA1100. I have tried several configurations, and here are the results.

    In all the following situations, I am using


    I also have different results of lsusb, depending of ... something (but I don't know what).

    Sometimes this
    Code:
    lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0cf3:9271 Atheros Communications, Inc.
    or sometimes this
    Code:
    lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0846:9030 NetGear, Inc.

    v1.0.4 of the package: not working

    In kern.log
    Code:
    [   84.220142] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
    [   84.354023] usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    and that's all ... the firmware is not loading, nothing

    Code:
    lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0cf3:9271 Atheros Communications, Inc.

    v1.0.3: works sometimes

    After the first restart, I plugged and it was working

    I'm thinking of buying thinkpenguin's usb wifi, since the netgear wna1100 is the second usb wifi I try on Ubuntu, spending a lot of time in this ... I hate netgear now. And D-Link. And all the others.

    Don't hesitate to tell me if you want me to try some things.
