    Wireless Network adapter no longer detected


    Netgear WNDA3100 Wireless Adapter no longer detected after Linux 3.0 kernel upgrade Fedora 15.

    My adapter is powered by the atheros 9k drivers and it works fine with the previous kernel 2.6.39, but after my last update i got the new kernel and now only my wired connection is detected. I'm an noob and since i am using grub customizer i can still select the old kernel for my wireless to work. I also run Opensuse 11. 4 Kde and Gnome 3.0 and the same problem occur after there kernel was updated.

    Any help to get my wireless working would be appreciate. Since i'm a noob any instruction would have to be in steps, i'm now learning the command line.

    Thanks,

    Bajan
    Linux Noob.

    Hello and Welcome.
    I think the first thing to do is issue this command in a terminal/konsole window (command line) and post your output.
    Boot into the 3.0 kernel first so that we can see if the module/driver is loaded. Be sure to use sudo or su - as needed.
    Code:
    lsmod |grep ath
    If it gives no output at all, then the module is not loaded. You might try this command if it is not loaded.
    Code:
    modprobe ath9k
    If you get no output from this command, that means it was loaded properly and you may try your connections again.

    Hi there!

    Follow Mikes' steps first, but also do this.
    If the modprobe doesn't work for you, reboot once more into the 3.0 kernel, and use this command:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep firmware
    Post back any and all output.

    Good idea Jay, I'm sure one of these is the problem.

    No errors for the modprobe, and nothing ugly showing up in dmesg. That's a good thing.
    While booted to the new kernel, execute these commands:
    Code:
    lspci -vnn
    ifconfig -a
    iwlist wlan0 scan
    There will be quite a bit of output, so please post it back in code tags to make for easier reading



    *The underlined wlan0 might need to change, depending on what you get from ifconfig.

    Hmmm, having a hard time with this one. According to my search, this card is not supported by the ath5/9 drivers. Well it might be but it also might need firmware to work.

    I've looked on my machine (Gentoo Kernel 3.0) and I do have a module named carl9170 already. You might also. Try inserting it.
    Code:
    modprobe carl9170
    You might get an error like "FATAL: Module carl9170 not found" which just means you don't have it yet. Your probably going to need to install a few things if that doesn't work.
    Code:
    yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel
