    Re: hp Pavilion g6 with Atheros (AR9485) [168c:0032] doesn't connect in 11.04

    Hi, I am researching the error messages.

    I do not know why most of the commands are not showing results.

    Have you had this wireless card work before recently?
    Thank you

    Cool Re: hp Pavilion g6 with Atheros (AR9485) [168c:0032] doesn't connect in 11.04

    The wireless works as it should in Windows 7, but I haven't got it to work in ubuntu 11.04 neither 10.04 (I tried before hoping it would be easier).

    Hi, a few more questions.

    Are you trying to set this up as an AP?

    Is your network hidden?

    Have you gone to the top right corner of the screen and clicked on the internet icon and put a check by enable wireless?

    Here is a screenshot
    Thank you

    Hi, we need to upgrade your kernel for this card to work, it is not support in older kernels.
    I am going to look for directions to install a newer kernel.
    Thank you

    Hi, it took awhile to find the kernel here we go.

    Go to this link and download them, they have to be installed in this order.
    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...0-rc2-oneiric/

    Code:
    linux-headers-3.0.0-0300rc2_3.0.0-0300rc2.201106081532_all.deb
    linux-headers-3.0.0-0300rc2-generic_3.0.0-0300rc2.201106081532_amd64.deb
    linux-image-3.0.0-0300rc2-generic_3.0.0-0300rc2.201106081532_amd64.deb

    Once you've got those downloaded, put them in your home folder of ubuntu installation. Make sure there are no other .deb files in your home. If there are, delete them.

    Next, copy&paste this line into the terminal.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    Enter your password, and wait and watch the terminal to make sure there is no errors, after it is done restart your computer and boot into the 3.0 kernel and see if you have wireless, there maybe more work to be done.
    Thank you

    I'm really sorry for the delay... I wasn't able to connect to the internet (but now it was a problem with my ISP).

    Are you trying to set this up as an AP?

    Is your network hidden?

    Have you gone to the top right corner of the screen and clicked on the internet icon and put a check by enable wireless?
    I'm not trying to set up an AP.
    My network is not hidden.
    The option is not available in the corner, is not even "unselectable" (ghost).

    I wasn't able to install this
    linux-headers-3.0.0-0300rc2-generic_3.0.0-0300rc2.201106081532_amd64.deb
    the GUI showed this
    Dependency is not satisfiable: linux-headers-3.0.0-0300rc2
    Thank you wildmanne39 for everything.
    Do you believe I should just change my computer for another one (I still have a few more days to return it to the store) or another model?

    Hi, no please do not take your computer back yet.

    I installed the new kernel on my computer and it was simple and worked great, make sure you put the three files you downloaded in your home/user file then run the command again.

    Also make sure you downloaded the correct files, they look a little confusing in that download page.
    Thank you

    Ok. Now I'm running kernel 3.

    Still no wireless
