View Full Version : [ubuntu] No wireless! Compat & Atheros problems! HELP!

November 4th, 2008, 04:00 PM
Hello Ubuntus!
My wireless connection has been operating for the past 6 months or so, then one day last week it stopped. I have both MadWifi and Compat driver packages, lately I've been using the Compat package. I just installed a new wireless router, which I know is working, and I get no signal when sitting right next to it. In my Network properties, it doesn't detect a wireless network at all. I've tried reinstalling Compat and MadWifi, creating a new wireless network, using roaming mode, everything I can think of but no luck. This is really frustrating, especially since it's been working fine forever, and now it mysteriously doesn't. BTW I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S5818 with Atheros wireless card, running Hardy Heron. Any help at all is appreciated. Thanks.
