    Re: hp Pavilion g6 with Atheros (AR9485) [168c:0032] doesn't connect in 11.04

    I did it, but no luck.
    I'm still running in kernel 2.6, because 3 doesn't boot up.
    Do you think I should do this again in 2.6?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential 
    wget http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2  
    tar jxvf compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless-20*
    ./scripts/driver-select atheros 
    make
    sudo make install

    Yes, that driver also is too "old"

    Yes! Thank you praseodym!

    For anyone else looking for a solution we ended up doing this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential 
    wget http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2  
    tar jxvf compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless-20*
    ./scripts/driver-select atheros 
    make
    sudo make install
    Then I did some instructions that appeared on the terminal (something like: "sudo make unload" "sudo make wlunload" "sudo make btunload" but it looked like didn't do much)
    then restart (in kernel 2.6, of course)
    And Voila!

    I also want to thank wildmanne39.

    Hi, I am glad you have it working, I see that you ended up using the compat wireless which was the method I was prepared to use as the last resort,

    Thank you praseodym I appreciate the help very much.

    Cool Re: hp Pavilion g6 with Atheros (AR9485) [168c:0032] doesn't connect in 11.04

    FYI, Today I had to do it all again... midday I lost wifi, but after repeating the process again it's OK.

    Hi, most likely you had an upgrade to your kernel when that happens you will have to do it again or go into the directory of the driver then do this.
    Code:
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install
    Thank you

    I'm also having some troubles with the Atheros AR9485 card in my Samsung Notebook. I assume I should create a new thread though?
