What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
and
Code: [Select]
lspci -vnn | grep -i net
and what happens now if you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe ath9k

Check this out,

Very strange. The ouput from "sudo lshw -C network"

and finally:
sudo modprobe ath9k
FATAL: Error inserting ath9k (/lib/modules/3.2.0-77-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/ath9k.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

so i ran "dmesg"...

What is this? It's the same error as before. Very strange?

Just as a test, what happens if you install the latest comat-wireless bacport:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-cw-3.12-3.2.0-77-generic
then reboot ?

then what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep ath

Something very strange here, no?

The output of that command is:

Well...

Horray, it's working! Except, it keeps dropping the connection to my wireless router. I have seen this before. It connects and disconnects. I found a fix for it long ago. I don't remember exactly what I did. I believe i included an option in a configure file somewhere. Any ideas on that?

Fantastic! Thank you ever so much for walking me through this. It is very much appreciated. I shall do a full install of Pep5 in a couple of months when I get the downtime I'll need to do that.

Thanks,

Try this .. run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf
when a BLANK file opens, add a single line that reads:
Code: [Select]
options ath9k nohwcrypt=1
SAVE the file and close gedit.

Now reboot to test.

if that doesn't help, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
grep -R 'ath9k' /etc/modprobe.d

By the way,

I installed Wicd Network Manager a.  Phew weeks ago in an attempt to solve this problem. I had other network manage,met tools already installed prior. Shall I just uninstall Wicd? Are there any advantages to keeping it over Network Manager?

Thanks,

First see my last posting....

feel free to uninstall wicd if you wish .. we can always reinstall it if it looks like it may help, but no point having both installed.
