    ------------- Trying using this commands : enabling network before and then
    :~$ sudo modprobe -r -f ath5k
    or
    :~$ sudo rmmod ath5k


    :~$ sudo modprobe ath5k




    Tryed now:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-hv-3.5.0-24-generic

    And rebooting. This not solves it.

    :~$ sudo su

    Just booting.

    Re: atheros ath5k not working, no wireless

    your original problem sounds like it might be some kind of power management issue? like the device is not waking up from sleep / hibernate

    Re: atheros ath5k not working, no wireless

    Thank you, I appreciate very much you help steeldriver.
    Do you know any direct way I can wake up my wireless from sleep/hibernate? I tryed $ ifup -a . No success.

    Can you help me to remove any damn I can have done in my tries and leave a virgin situation where possibly apply the wake up procedure?

    Sincerely I also have no procedure to recognize if the wireless simply suddendly broken. If it is so, probably not responding at all? (and this is not the case, real?).

    In my searches I found something about a driver not associated with the wireless, and this because "network UNCLAIMED". But sincerely I haven't found an exact procedure resolve the unclaimed, or for some reason the procedure with me doesn't solve.

    Re: atheros ath5k not working, no wireless

    These things can be hard to fix - chili555 has previously posted a possible solution

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ighlight=sleep

    You will need to change the module name from iwlwifi to ath5k

    IIRC there's also a condition where Windows can leave some wireless hardware in a state that Linux can't wake it from - that's only if you dual boot of course, and I don't know if it applies to the Atheros chipset(s)

    You may want to remove the backports package as well, since that seems to have made things worse

    Re: atheros ath5k not working, no wireless

    Hi,
    everybody.
    Unfortunately may be I solved.

    This is my output now:
    $ lspci -nn | grep Ath
    Code:
    02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications Inc. Attansic L1 Gigabit Ethernet [1969:1048] (rev b0)
    May be this is the solution to the question: how can I recognize if my controller suddendly breaks?
    (may be)Answer: because no response in lspci -nn , and no module response in dmesg | grep -e ath -e wlan


    If no news from you, bad news, and so have I to buy a wireless-usb-pen or a new controller? Can you confirm?

    Thanks for you attention...

    I read your answer now, below... I'll remove backports, thanks.
