[Solved] Incoming UP4 ... Wireless Problem - Atheros adapter

Postby timber on Sat Feb 25, 2012 6:19 pm

I posted feedback on the "UPDATE PACK 4 FEEDBACK THREAD" - looking for a way to resolve the problem so I can update further as necessary.

Background: Clean install of Incoming UP3 with update to UP4 (using default DE)

Issue: Wireless network works fine using 3.0.0.1 but will not connect using 3.2
(Wireless shows up on panel (in 3.2 as working but cannot connect to internet or ping or access update manager).

Network controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter

Thoughts: Thinking I need a new (different?) driver for the Atheros Adapter that works with the 3.2 kernel.
Perhaps a driver from Testing or Sid repositories?

Any tips or suggestions as to how I can get my wireless working on 3.2? Driver/ source suggestions?

Thanks,

UPDATE: Problem solved by entering the following at the root terminal:
Code: Select all
echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf

I found the above code at the following link and was posted originally by AlbertP:
Atheros AR9285 in LM11
Thanks AlbertP ... issue was not exactly the same as per your post but it solved my problem as well - Thanks!
