    Re: wireless not connecting to network

    yea that is also how my screen is looking, but still I am unable to connect to a network. I tried linksys(an unsecured network) but am still unable to connect. Anyone else have advice??

    Re: wireless not connecting to network

    First of all, you may want to try using wicd to connect instead of Network Manager. A lot of people have better luck with wicd.

    If that doesn't help, please post the output of:
    Code:
    lsusb
    lspci -nn
    dmesg | grep -e ndis -e wlan
    Also, if you turn off encryption on your router (if you have the authority to do that), can you connect then?

    Are you using madwifi. That fixes this card.

    Re: wireless not connecting to network

    serian,

    Please run these commands; they should fix your connection (you will need to be connected to the Internet somehow to run these commands; if that's impossible, let me know):

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    wget http://burnthesorbonne.com/files/com...0080916.tar.gz
    tar -xzvf compat-wireless-ath9k-20080916.tar.gz
    chmod +x compat-wireless-ath9k-20080916.sh
    ./compat-wireless-ath9k-20080916.sh
    sudo dpkg --install compat*deb
    echo 'ath_pci' | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    Then restart and your wireless connection should work. If not, please post the output of:
    Code:
    lshw -C Network
    dmeg | grep -e ath -e wlan
    sudo iwlist scan
    lsmod | grep ath
