    wireless & wired module does not exist

    Hi, I had to install a new kernel, so I installed 3.8rc7 anyway the wire and wireless modules did not build I imagine because I can not modprobe ath9k or the wired module.

    I will have to switch to the new kernel to get the info you need.
    Thanks

    Is this where you got the packages, or where? http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa....8-rc7-raring/

    Did you install linux-image, linux-headers and linux-headers-all? In other words, all three?

    Please also install linux-image-extra and I believe you'll be all set. Rebooting to test.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.
