Atheros 802.11a/bg PCI/PCI-E devices (ath5k)

I am using a Natty Narwhal, Ubuntu I installed Ubuntu on my Sony Vaio laptop about 18 months ago because the pre-installed Vista is awful and am generally loving my wire,ess experience. I have sent this bug upstream directly to the kernel developers, considering the regression nature of this bug report, and that there is a lot of information here, and many things tried and tested.

Even though I had my ethernet cable plugged into the laptop, it was still trying to reconnect to a wifi network in the house, and there is no telling how long this dialog box had been up, causing my cpu to run hotter. This affects me too.

Well NetworkManager is known to be problematic I tried it for a while but found there was no difference could adaptdr all networks but only connect to unsecured ones. I’ll add to this that this specific laptop was my own, and worked back in an old version of Ubuntu, possibly 7.

Did you disable NetworkManager from running on start? I’m thinking this may be related to NetworkManager, and will work through https: Exactly why that is happening is unclear at this point.

Hope this helps, Shoka. No amount of messing around with the rfkill options works.

[SOLVED] Atheros AR Wireless Network Adapter

Brad Figg brad-figg on Bug Watch Updater bug-watch-updater on Then I received my new laptop, and I’ve not been using the affected the laptop lately. Half the time it couldn’t even see any networks at all and, even when it can, it refuses to connect to anything – even unsecured networks – so I’ve gone back to using Network Networ.

After making things hard on myself, I realized there was something weird going on with this error message: And haven’t been able to get it to search for networks again. This was tried way back when with “sudo rfkill unblock all” and it worked for about 5 minutes until the user tried to connect to an AP, but then the hp-wifi I can only assume kicked back in and hard blocked everything.
