    Wireless problem with Asus eee pc1005HAB - Ubuntu 11.04

    Hi! I have recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my asus eeepc1005hab. And I've had problems with the wifi. I can connect via ethernet, but the wireless won't connect. I can see the connection, but my wifi never connects. I've tried many things but it still won't work. Can any one help? Thanks!

    Did you check if WLAN is enabled in the Bios menu?

    First, let's see what kind of wireless card you have; then we'll troubleshoot it. Please open a terminal and run and post:
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    lspci -nn | grep 0280

    Your card uses the driver module ath9k which is usually pretty reliable. Is your network set to WPA and WPA2 mixed mode? That is often troublesome. If you can, try WPA2 only. You might also try:
    Code:
    sudo rmmod -f ath9k
    sudo modprobe ath9k nohwcrypt=1
    Any improvement?

    I'm a noob, so how would I change the wpa and wpa2 mixed mode? and I"ve tried the code but this happens:

    Code:
    ana@aphrodite:~$ sudo rmmod -f ath9k
    [sudo] password for ana: 
    ERROR: Removing 'ath9k': No such file or directory
    ana@aphrodite:~$ sudo modprobe ath9k nohwcrpt=1
    FATAL: Error inserting ath9k (/lib/modules/2.6.38-11-generic-pae/updates/cw-2.6.39/ath9k.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

    Did you fail to tell old Chili about installing the compat-wireless package?? Which version of the package did you install? It's in the name of the folder that was created when you extracted the tar.bz2. For example, compat-wireless-2011-07-15.

    Oh! It seems I did...sorry.

    I installed compat-wireless-3.0-2.tar.bz2 (that's the title of the .tar.bz2. file)

    I suggest you uninstall it and then see if it connects. If not, try this: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Do...ng_the_tarball

    I think the version you installed is for kernel version 3.0 and you have 2.6.38.
