    Re: Ubuntu ! Wireless driver need help

    That all looks pretty normal! What about:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    rfkill list all
    Thanks.

    Please try:
    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    rfkill list all
    Have we gotten rid of soft blocked yes?
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    Please do so. If you see your network, your wireless is ready to go. We'll have to amend one file to make the unblock permanent.

    Re: Ubuntu ! Wireless driver need help

    Is the ethernet cable attached? Please detach it and check again. If it still reports the device is not ready, run and post:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e ath -e wlan
    Thanks.
