Wireless Connectivity with Atheros ar242x in Hardy
Hey, guys. n00b here.
The problem: Atheros ar242x connectivity on a Compaq Presario C700 in Hardy. The connection is not being recognized at all. Other computers running Windows do not have any problem with this. This laptop also received a strong connection before installation of Ubuntu.
bash: /sbin/lspci: No such file or directory
lspci | grep "Ethernet":
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
I've tried several variants of Madwifi and ndiswrapper, but nothing has solved the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
