    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ntos: no, keep ath_pci on the blacklist for now. It looks like you missed one of the commands you were supposed to type (I think you never ran 'sudo modprobe ath9k'). Please reboot again, then run these commands and post the output:
    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod ath9k
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e ath

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ntos: please post the output of the following commands (in the order given) and I'll try to help you get your card working. I need this information in order to tell you how to proceed:
    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod ath9k
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e ath

    .rar is just an archive file; you can open it on Linux or Windows. The part of the Windows driver that you need is two files, one with the extension .inf and the other with .sys. If you could upload this .rar file, I'll take a look and see if I can find the bits that you need.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ntos: it looks like you forgot to run one of the commands in the list, the 'sudo modprobe ath9k' command (unfortunately it was the most important one). Please run these commands again and post the output:
    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod ath9k
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e ath
    As for uploading the file: I don't think the forums allow you to attach .rar files, but if you send me email through my website, I'll write back and you can attach the file to the email.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ntos: you still seem to be skipping the 'sudo modprobe ath9k' command, which is important because it's the one that loads the driver. Please post the output of these commands again, and be sure to run the one in bold (along with all the others):
    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod ath9k
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e ath

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ntos: thanks for that output. It looks like the ath9k driver is able to bring up your card, which is good. Run this command so that ath9k will always be loaded at boot:
    Code:
    echo ath9k | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    Then reboot, and see if you can connect. If not, please post the output of these commands, in this order (some of them are repeated on purpose):

    Code:
    sudo iwlist scan
    ifconfig
    lshw -C Network
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e ath
