    Atheros Wireless Lan Card- was working fine until...

    Hi all,

    The following events occured-

    1. I install ubuntu on Acer aspire 4520 and my wireless card (Atheros)
    works out of the box.
    2. Few days ago I change my D-link WBR-1310 WLAN router password.
    3. My wireless internet stops getting detected altogether, even at Starbucks or my Univiersity Wi-fi or anywhere else for that matter.

    4. I do this
    vineet@vineet-laptop:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    5.then this
    vineet@vineet-laptop:~$ sudo lshw -C network
    [sudo] password for vineet:
    *-network

    6. I post this message.

    Other facts:
    Wireless still works with Windows Vista.
    WLAN card LED is always turned off in Ubuntu (even when the connection worked).

    Please help.

    Did the system do an update?

    Sounds like a driver problem to me.

    Try this link below and see if it helps you get it working again.
