Felicia and Atheros wireless card problems

Postby malakh » Fri Mar 06, 2009 1:17 am

I just purchased an Acer Aspireone that came standard with XP Home. I installed the new copy of LinuxMint but my wireless card is not working.
I ran lspci and came up with Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter.
I have the searched everywhere else I can think of, even here, but I can't find a solid answer on how to fix this.
PLEASE HELP!!!

I tried going through those, but when I get to the step sudo ifconfig wlan0 up, terminal says that there is no such device
wlan0: Error while getting interface flags: No such device.

Any suggestions for that?

Try running mintWifi, it may show what the name of the wireless card is.
