    11.04 wireless issue AR9287/AR5B97

    Im dualbooting my new acer aspire 1830T.

    with windows 7 the atheros wireless card works great.

    with the latest ubuntu it doesnt work at all.

    Windows reports it as an Atheros AR5B97 however doing a lscpi in ubuntu shows it as an AR9287.

    Not too sure what i should be doing to get this up and running in ubuntu, any help would be much appreciated.

    (Ps. crossposted here [edit, i posted this same thread on the ubuntuforums.org but the post has vanished from there]

    Thanks.

    RB

    There is a networking and wireless section that you might post in, or ask someone to move your thread there. It looks like your thread it pretty old there (August 22, 2010?) too, so I would just make a new one if that is the case. I usually get pretty quick responses in those forums, but if it gets older than a day without a response, it usually gets to far down the forum list.

    i created a post on the ubuntuforums.org about 5 mins before i posted here. Ive just logged back into my ubuntuforums.org account and there is no sign of any posts by me, and the url i posted in my original post ended up at some other post.
