Wireless internet doesn't work, blacklist?
I've just installed Kubuntu 8.10 and I'm really new to linux so the way it works is still a big mystery to me. So forgive my question please.
I was having trouble with my atheros wireless driver, and someone told me how I could get another one.
Anyway, one of the steps was this:
echo 'blacklist ath_pci' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
Not that I know much, but now it seems my atheros wireless is on a blacklist and can't be used? Am I right?
So, how do I:
(1) Unblacklist it and use it. (Keeping in mind I know little about linux, kubuntu and the whole command line thing, for now).
(2) Get a new driver that works better.
The reason I wanted to change the driver was that when I went to use XP, then went back to Kubuntu - I could not see in network manager my wireless connection.
This is the wireless model I have:
0a:03.0 Ethernet controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bgNIC [168c:001a] (rev 01)
So any help on getting my wireless internet up and running again is much appreciated, I'd hate to have to go back to xp. Just the thought of it.. shudder.
