    Question Atheros AR9285 / Lenovo G560 wireless not working after installing 13.04

    Hello everyone,

    I had Ubuntu 12.04 initially installed on my laptop. I upgraded to 12.10 then 13.04.
    Everything worked fine, including wireless.
    After adding a new memory card ( I only had 2 gb and one memory slot free) my wireess stopped working.
    I backed up all my data and reinstallled Ubuntu 13.04.
    Everything works fine except wireess.
    I bought this laptop in 2010 from Japan.
    It has Intel Core i5 CPU M 450 @2.40 Ghz * 4
    3,7 Gb RAM
    os type 64 bit
    The output of iwconfig:

    Code:
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    lo        no wireless extensions.

    the wi-fi network appears as disconnected ( it's greyed out) Strangely enough I see a wifi network ( not mine) but not mine or the rest. That network doesn't require a password . I click on it, try to connect and i get an error message: failed to connect to xxxxx ... 32) The access point /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/AccessPoint/0 was not in the scan list.
    Someone help please

    Re: Atheros AR9285 / Lenovo G560 wireless not working after installing 13.04

    Network Manager will prefer wired over wireless. Please detach the ethernet cable, reboot and run:
    Code:
    nm-tool
    dmesg | grep -e ath -e wlan
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    Re-attach the ethernet, connect and give us the results here.

    Re: Atheros AR9285 / Lenovo G560 wireless not working after installing 13.04

    Let's try a driver parameter:
    Code:
    sudo -i
    echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf
    modprobe -r ath9k
    modprobe ath9k
    exit
    Any improvement? It may take a reboot.

    Let's try to compile a later and, hopefully, better version of the driver. Please download this file to your desktop: https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/ker...-rc3-1.tar.bz2 Right-click it and select 'Extract Here.' Now get a temporary wired ethernet connection, open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
    cd Desktop/backports-3.11-rc3-1
    make defconfig-ath9k
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf
    Reboot and let me have a (good) report!
