    Note to Dr. Chili- Not completely sure, but I don't think ath9k was in the kernel before 2.6.29. I think he/she may have to change the sources.list to old-releases and and use the backports like in

    Well wrong again!
    From http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k
    "
    Any distribution shipping a kernel >= 2.6.27 will have ath9k present but the ath9k driver on 2.6.32 is the oldest one recommended, anything older than that is completely unsupported

    I meant to say that I don't know what a wireless interface is, although I am using wireless to connect to the internet right now through windows, I have a partitiond hard-drive with ubuntu

    I'm not at all sure ath9k in 9.04 claims his device:
    Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. Device [168c:002e] (rev 01)
    I don't know what a wireless interface is, although I am using wireless to connect to the internet right now through windows, I have a partitiond hard-drive with ubuntu
    It would show up as wlan0 here, which it doesn't:
    alex@alex-laptop:~$ iwconfig

    lo no wireless extensions.

    pan0 no wireless extensions.
    As soon as we solve that mystery, we'll be off and running.

    Back according to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k

    It was not supported (that id corresponds to AR9287)

    Haha, I wish I knew what was going on; although the shadow I'm in makes me more eager to become a linux master.

    Don't let him kid you. A computing specialist? Who, me? Nope,

    Correct. The driver ath9k in your 9.04 system does not support your device:
    filename: /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ath9k/ath9k.ko
    license: Dual BSD/GPL
    description: Support for Atheros 802.11n wireless LAN cards.
    author: Atheros Communications
    srcversion: 5530FD7F98BD55CB1169801
    alias: pci:v0000168Cd0000002Asv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v0000168Cd00000029sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v0000168Cd00000027sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v0000168Cd00000024sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v0000168Cd00000023sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    depends: led-class,mac80211
    vermagic: 2.6.28-11-generic SMP mod_unload modversions 586
    Devices 002a, 0029, 0027, 0024 and 0023 are listed, but not 002e.

    We could download and install a driver with great difficulty; eventually, we'd get it done. Alternatively, you could download and install the later version of Ubuntu. It is supported, for example in 10.04 LTS.

    How much patience do you have? Which do you prefer?
