    It's just as (??) simple as posts #4 and 6 at the link you gave. The only change I'd make is to download and compile this: http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/comp...1-snpc.tar.bz2

    Otherwise, it's all the same. As always, post back if you get stuck.

    Re: Trouble loading drivers for Atheros 8161 (ubuntu 12.10)

    How/Where do I get the specific packages for 3.5.0-17-generic? The packages I've already downloaded are for -25 and I don't see anywhere on the page (where I got them) that enables me to download the -17 packages.

    Which specific packages do you need?

    I assume I need the packages that correspond to the ones you recommended in post #6 of this thread.

    All the build-essential stuff will be the same between -17 and -25. The linux-headers can be found here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/l...5.0-17-generic as well as here http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/l...aders-3.5.0-17 ; you need both.

    So, I d/l'd the headers files, and attempted "sudo dpkg -i *.deb" and got what you see below. Seeing that there was a dependency problem I checked to make sure g++-4.7~ was in the Desktop folder. It was; so I tried to install it individually with "sudo dpkg -i g++_4.7.2-1ubuntu2_amd64.deb" and you can see what happened. It seems to be telling me that it can't install the package because the package isn't installed yet. I'm sure I'm misreading it. Can you tell what's going on, and how I can fix it?

    Package g++-4.7 is not installed.
    Then go get it: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/g++-4.7

    Re: Trouble loading drivers for Atheros 8161 (ubuntu 12.10)

    I'm back from being out of town...
    As you suggested, I re-downloaded g++-4.7 and attempted the install. As you can see I seem to be caught in a "catch-22"...I can't install g++-4.7 because libstdc isn't installed, and I can't install libstdc because g++-4.7 isn't installed.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Re: Trouble loading drivers for Atheros 8161 (ubuntu 12.10)

    I suggest you try to install them both at once:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i g++*.deb libstdc*.deb
    Please let us know how this goes.
