    Can't use wireless(AR9462) in Acer Aspire V5 with Ubuntu 10.04

    My wifi card is minipcie.
    below is that I run "lspci -nn"
    Code:
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. Device [168c:0034] (rev 01)

    And I run lshw -C network,
    Code:

    pan0      no wireless extensions.
    My kernel version is 2.6.32-38-generic. (run uname -r)
    Could anyone teach me how to enable wireless in Ubuntu 10.04?

    Thanks.

    Re: Can't use wireless(AR9462) in Acer Aspire V5 with Ubuntu 10.04

    Hi, welcome to the fora.

    10.04 is out of support. As a first step I would recommend a fresh install of 12.04.2 or 13.04.

    After that is done please wait a moment before installing ndiswrapper.
