    Thumbs down Atheros AR9285 (PCI-Express), Toshiba NB200

    Hi people,

    Im new to linux, loved the screen shots and reviews of ubuntu and its netbook remix, and as I was sick of Windows, I installed it on my new netbook Toshiba NB200. I installed from USB as per ubuntu online guides. Everything works fine, except the wireless connection...the LED is on all the time..but it says 'no network connection' and no wireless signals are picked up (despite the LED).

    Ive tried all the various suggestions on these forums to fix it - ndiswrapper, etc, and even did 'sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty' update....but to no avail. I've tried various things for 3 days now, searched everywhere and tried what I can, but no luck. Im at wits end. I need some help from Linux pros! Please help me get my wireless internet working .
    As per this 'sticky' thread -http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6183681 I've pasted a bunch of info below. Any advice gladly accepted Thank you!

    Please let me know if you need more info. I didnt put the Kernel boot messages up, because that was a long write up. Let me know If you need that.

    Thumbs down Re: Atheros AR9285 (PCI-Express), Toshiba NB200

    I forgot to point out that the netbook came with an OEM Windows XP home on it. I installed Ubuntu as a dual boot option, so now I think it uses GRUB boot loader? Anyway, the dual boot doesnt work for windows...takes me to a blue screen..but thats a different issue!

    The point here, is that i DO have access to the Windows folder to find drivers to fix my problem above.

    Hope to hear from someone out there soon!

    Re: Atheros AR9285 (PCI-Express), Toshiba NB200

    Hi,

    same Atheros WLAN chip here, on my Asus eee-pc 1003hag. To make it work you should EITHER use ndiswrapper OR the updated Atheros driver in the backports package.

    I use the Atheros driver since it was easier to get it going. Just install the backports package for jaunty or intrepid. If you installed ndiswrapper, remember to disable ndiswrapper - look for "blacklisting modules" in the Ubuntu docs. If ndiswrapper has blacklisted the Atheros module ath9k, you must fix that, too. Remember, it's either .. or - you cannot use both of these wlan drivers together.

    Simply installing the backports package did it for me. I did not play around with ndiswrapper yet. I might do in the future, since the connections established with the ath9k driver appear to me fairly weak. However, to get any wireless connectivity at all, it is the easiest thing to do.

    Re: Atheros AR9285 (PCI-Express), Toshiba NB200

    Hi endjuser,

    Many thanks for the reply and suggestion! I will give that a go and see if it works. I'll un-install ndiswrapper I guess, and try your method.

    Right now though, I'm in the midst of updating the kernel to the latest one, as another forum suggested that may work. So will try that, then if that fails, come back to your suggestion.

    Re: Atheros AR9285 (PCI-Express), Toshiba NB200

    Hi there.

    I am VERY new to Linux, like Rahulnlnz, but I can't get my head around a lot of this. I have an NB200 and I also have dual booted Ubuntu with XP.

    I cannot get my wireless Atheros to work in Ubuntu. I have tried typing ''sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty' in the terminal - said it could not be found. I don't know how to 'install' the drivers.

    Can someone help a newbie like me please?

    Many thanks.

    @revbin & Rahulnlnz

    Like you guys I am completely new to Linux, I just want a decent os on my new asus seashell. I have succeeded in getting the wireless to work by following these instructions:

    http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=69647

    Explains how to get the ethernet working, which seems to be the easiet path to get the wireless working. Go to msg #24 for the details.

    http://www.amazon.com/Seashell-10-In...ews/B0029QMDZI

    Explains how to install the wireless driver when the ethernet is working. Look for the review by a guy named Kurt Milligan. After running the final install command, click once on the wireless icon in the top of screen, and you should get a list of available routers.

    I was planning on writing a more comprehensive guide based on this, but unfortunately it still doesn't work 100% for me. My pc loses the connection to the router after a while, but I suspect this may be a problem with the router...

    I hope it helps!

    Re: Atheros AR9285 (PCI-Express), Toshiba NB200

    Thanks very much for your feedback, Martin. My only problem is I am so new to Linux, the page you recommended looks like a different language to me. It talks about updating the 'kernel' which I have no idea about. I've spent at least a week on this and I am no closer to understanding Linux. 'Fraid I'm going to uninstall Ubuntu and go back to XP. Thanks anyway.

    Unhappy Re: Atheros AR9285 (PCI-Express), Toshiba NB200

    Revbin...don't give up yet!! Let me get mine working and I'll take you through step by step

    martinnjensen, thanks for those links, but I tried that already i think actually and it didnt work - maybe its my particular card AR9285. But I tried that before updating my kernel...but I think this newer kernel should fix things (correct me people if Im wrong).

    OK, just updating where I'm at..I feel Im so close...but just missing something small...I'd really like some help from some more experienced users than me please I've updated the Kernel to the latest one, and that seems to have done a lot of good...but the problem still remains - I can not connect to my wireless...in fact Im not picking up any signals through network manager. Ethernet works perfectly. Here is an updated dump of what I gave in my initial post.
