    Wireless problem


    Hi Folks

    My colleague at work loaded Ubuntu 9.04 yesterday on my Toshiba Sattelite Pro A200 at home. I can connect to the internet with the cable, but not by wireless. Can anyone help? I am in Tunisia (N.Africa) and work during the daytime. Thanks.

    I read the message in this forum posted by Paul on getting started with setting up a wireless card. So I went to the terminal and have the message below to share. I also note that the wireless card is both unclaimed and disabled.

    Howdy.

    Please post the output of lsmod as well.

    It looks like you may have two different drivers loading, which interfere with each other. You want to blacklist ath_hal and ath_pci, and load only ath5k.

    More info: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...Driver/Atheros

    Welcome to Linux Forums, tom8195!

    I reduced the font size in your post, as it is against the forum rules to post that way, when it really isn't necessary. Please read and abide by the forum rules.

    We also need all of the information that I explained about in my wireless How-To thread. It is needed to properly help you.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    ath_hal and ath_pci are part of the madwifi project's drivers for atheros chipsets. They are being phased out in favor of ath5k and ath9k.

    I did the following commands:

    I got 15 pages of text, but the forum said I included 17 images and was only allowed 4. I did a search for the word img to find if there were tags, but found none. I am using Ubuntu for the second day now so am quite useless. What do you suggest? I can\t attach the file, can i?

    It is now 1030PM and must go to bed.

    best

    15 pages? You must have included the entire dmesg output.

    Just run the script that I made available in that thread. When you post it, surround it in "code" tags, as I also explained in that thread.

    If you don't post with "code tags" surrounding the text, it will misinterpret some text as emoticons or smilies. You then have to check the box below the message input box labeled "Disable smilies in text"

    A smiley is an image and counted against the limit.

    Probably the error causing the problem is listed below. What do you think?
