    12.04 - Wireless Connectivity

    I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my new desktop and I am unable to use my wireless. The wireless detects the networks in the area and asks me for my password and attempts to connect. After about a minute or two it asks for the password again without ever connecting. Is this a driver issue? or something I can fix with a simple command?

    My Wireless card is the Gigabyte GC-W300D.
    I believe it is Atheros AR5BWB222

    Hi, copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back, click on the paper clip and attach the netinfo.txt file.
    Thanks

    Sorry about the non-ethernet, student housing... 1 ethernet in the house in the most inconvenient place... quite annoying. Anyway, after some USB troubles I finally got the file for you.
    here are the results.

    Hi, looks like you have a bug, please try:
    Code:
    echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf
    sudo modprobe -rfv ath9k
    sudo modprobe -v ath9k
    Also which network are you trying to connect too?
    Thanks

    You can try the commands now, it will not hurt anything and you do not need to be connected to the internet to run them.
    Thanks
