Running Linux Lite 1.0.8 and this card is not recognized by the system.

So far I have done the following:

In a terminal:
sudo leafpad /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf

Then a file called ath9k.conf opened, and I input the following:
options ath9k nohwcrypt=1
Saved this file.

Then in terminal:
lsmod |grep ath9k

Performed a reboot. No effect.

Next, I input the following in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install rfkill

I believe this finished installing, apparently no effect.

Hi, DRW05

A little more information, please.  Could you post the output of the following commands from a terminal (enter each command individually - some output can be lengthy):

Code: [Select]
uname -rv
lspci -knn | grep -EiA2 net
dmesg|grep -Ei 'wlan|firmw|dhc'
sudo cat /var/log/syslog | grep -Ei 'net|wpa|dhc'

Since you have installed rfkill, please post the output of the following:

Code: [Select]
sudo rfkill list
It would also be helpful to know the make/model of your system.
