Hi all, i am a new user of kubuntu.
i installed it along side windows 7 on my dell duo, it installed fine no errors. the only problem so far is the wireless configuration.
if i click on the network manager? it says that the wireless is disabled by hardware. run this commands in terminal and this is what is displayed:
lo no wireless extensions.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSIDff/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=off
Retry long limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff
lo Link encap:Local Loopback

TX packets:84 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:6240 (6.2 KB) TX bytes:6240 (6.2 KB)
i did already looked in the bios and the card is enabled, also it works great in windows7.
finally i tried to run this command "lspci | grep Wireless" and i got:
02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev01)
then i tried this "ifconfig wlan0 up" and got this "SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill"
to me it seems that the card is up and running, but for some reasone it is not working right at all.
Any help in figuring this out would be greately appreciated!!!
