    13.04 Atheros Wireless Network Card Not Working, Compaq Presario CQ61Z

    Hey!

    So two days ago I installed 13.04 on my computer hoping it would fix the problem in 12.10 with my wireless internet connection, but lo and behold, it's the exact same. I can't even see any broadcasting wifi networks, even though I know there are many around me (including my own) because I am running alongside win 7. The ethernet is working (that's what I'm using right now), but I can't get anything wireless to work at all, even though I know my network is fully functional. When I switch over to win 7, it works perfectly, no problems at all, but I just don't understand what is happening. I am a complete n00b to linux, and I really want to get into it, but how can I when I can't connect to the internet?

    I have a Compaq Presario CQ61Z, and I know I have an Atheros card, but I don't know specifically. Can any of you please help? This is so tiring!

    Thank you SO MUCH ahead of time, I really do appreciate it.

    EDIT: Skip to the end of this thread to find a link to help you out.

    Deactivate the hardware encryption of the driver:

    Code:
    echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf
    sudo modprobe -rfv ath9k
    sudo modprobe -v ath9k

    Okay, now I can't connect to the internet, period. I'm now on a separate computer. What should I do?

    Oh, just kidding. Hahaha, sorry, I rebooted and now it works! (?) So proceed.

    EDIT: Also, when I click on the network icon in the top right, it says, "device not managed" under Wifi Networks.

    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep ath
    route -n

    Remove the package resolvconf and reboot:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge resolvconf
