This solution is for Broadcom wireless adapter only. Since you have
Atheros, this solution will NOT work for you....
I am trying to figure out a solution for Atheros adapter as well....have
patience...Have a nice day..
just asked the similar question as mine searches for automatic preferred network it says it is out of range while again I have 98 per cent on wireless it refuses which has the right code and detail we set up. So at least if you watch my answer to posted help maybe that will answer yours. Amilo notebook Atheros system but this may be a common to others listed as Fujitsu Amilo notebook Atheros AR5005G ... I know how they should work but Motorola had nightmares with this as did Vodaphone when I wrote them a graphics programme 1989 1990 as a short term (carphones), my work is hydrology soils Geology but I was taught Lotus macros by a great lady at Employment Initiatives as I never learned Algol and Fortran fully (punch cards days of JANET) and spent 20 years of success with hardly a computer in range except processing my salary and tax, which is where I wish I was now. Right have a look and get a free result, they may resolve both at once ... mine has a nine point code I do not recognise. I cannot disable and it worked right first day Broadband and after 78Mb updates it collapsed. Mike
Dear Friend ,
Kindly check with the driver in this site and revert back.Kindly follow the below steps:
1. Remove any ath_pci driver from the RESTRICTED DRIVERS MANAGER 2. Make sure that you have build-essential package installed, if not, fire up a terminal and type in sudo apt-get install build-essential 3. Navigate your way in Terminal to the directory where you downloaded the archive for the driver 4. Type these to decompress the archive tar xfz madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz and cd madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007 5. Type make to compile 6. Type sudo make install to install the driver 7. Type sudo modprobe ath_pci to insert the driver as a kernel module 8. Restart by typing sudo reboot 9. If all goes well, after you restarted, you will find wireless networks in your Network Manager
Kindly with the below url and download the file name the Wireless LAN Atheros Wireless Lan Driver v184.108.40.206.zip 220.127.116.11
I might advised you to check the driver of the wireless adapter using your computer. There are some issue about the operating system like SP 3, Check the driver if it is compatible to the operating system.
