    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Wifi Drivers

    Although I dont have a lot of knowledge of modprobe, I would be willing to assume that the issue may have something to do with the 3 warnings and fatal error.
    .ko-rrect! A little inside joke there. For the benefit of all the driver dawgs out there, we have a conflict in the mac80211 driver. This one is being loaded:
    Error inserting mac80211 (/lib/modules/3.2.0-27-generic/updates/cw-3.3/mac80211.ko): Invalid argument
    However, a mac80211 driver was built but is not being loaded in compat-wireless. The two versions conflict. Let's try to fix that.
    I tried installing the
    Code:
    linux-backports-modules-cw-3.3-precise-generic
    package as suggested by the last post in the thread you specified, however this has had no effect.
    We are going to remove it.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge linux-backports-modules-cw-3.3-precise-generic
    sudo apt-get remove --purge linux-backports-modules-cw-3.3-3.2.0-27-generic
    Now reboot and give us a report. If it's not working as expected, let us see:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    dmesg | grep ath9k

    As usual, its still not working, though I'm hopeful that if we keep trying it will eventually.

    Terminal output from your commands is:

    Code:
    kai@Kai-Lapbuntu:~$ iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    kai@Kai-Lapbuntu:~$ sudo modprobe ath9k
    kai@Kai-Lapbuntu:~$ dmesg | grep ath9k
    [    6.644495] ath9k 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17

    Let's broaden the search:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e ath -e 80211
    though I'm hopeful that if we keep trying it will eventually.
    We do too!

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Wifi Drivers

    More and newer information! We are going to modify two other files in the compat-wireless package you compiled and then re-compile it.

    In the file drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/hw.c, change around line 680 as I've highlighted:
    Code:
    case AR9300_DEVID_AR9485_PCIE:
    	case AR9300_DEVID_AR9330:
    	case AR9300_DEVID_AR9340:
    	case AR9300_DEVID_AR9580:
    	case AR9300_DEVID_AR9462:
            case AR9485_DEVID_AR1111:
    		break;
    	default:
    		if (common->bus_ops->ath_bus_type == ATH_USB)
    			break;
    Also modify drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/hw.h around line 51 as highlighted:
    Code:
    #define AR9300_DEVID_AR9340	0x0031
    #define AR9300_DEVID_AR9485_PCIE 0x0032
    #define AR9300_DEVID_AR9580	0x0033
    #define AR9300_DEVID_AR9462	0x0034
    #define AR9300_DEVID_AR9330	0x0035
    #define AR9485_DEVID_AR1111	0x0037
    
    #define AR5416_AR9100_DEVID	0x000b
    
    #define	AR_SUBVENDOR_ID_NOG	0x0e11
    #define AR_SUBVENDOR_ID_NEW_A	0x7065
    #define AR5416_MAGIC		0x19641014
    Now we recompile:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/compat-wireless-2012-05-10
    sudo su
    ./scripts/driver-select restore
    ./scripts/driver-select ath9k
    make clean
    make
    make install
    exit
    Reboot and give the Wild Man a reason to cheer.

    I am going to try your newer solution now, and will be post again soon with the results.

    Mmmmmm...I don't like that one bit but I doubt it's at all related to wireless.
    will be post again soon with the results.
    Looking forward to it.

    IT WORKED!
    Thank you so much!
    You sir are an amazing human being, and should be proud of the fact that you have just helped someone that you don't even know, purely out of kindness.


    If there is any more information I can provide, or anything I can do to help prevent others from encountering this issue in the future, please let me know, I will be happy to.

    Thank you again.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Wifi Drivers

    Thank you very much for your kind words. We are glad it's working!

    You already have. The method to get this device working has been implemented and tested by you. I am quite confident that many others will search and find the solution. I'm glad the Wild Man and I could help.

    Please remember that when a newer kernel version, known in Ubuntu-land as linux-image is installed by Update Manager, you'll need to recompile this driver:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/compat-wireless-2012-05-10
    sudo su
    ./scripts/driver-select restore
    ./scripts/driver-select ath9k
    make clean
    make
    make install
    exit
    You might print off these instructions so you'll recall when the time comes. The smart and fast guys like Wild Man, print a pdf and put it in the folder with compat-wireless. Please see attached.
