Postby psyminder » 2011-08-28 19:04

Hi mates nice to meet you!
First of all I am a noob at debian and i have a problem with wifi..
I downloaded from here http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/weekl ... 86/iso-cd/ this file
debian-testing-i386-CD-1.iso 22-Aug-2011 06:05 642M
which is debian wheezy and i installed the os.But after the installation although ethernet works network manager dont recognize wifi .. msg (wireless network device not managed).I tried a lot of methods searching internet but i couldn't find a solution..
my cards cheapset is AR9285 Atheros ath9k.
First i tried this http://wiki.debian.org/ath9k but there is no tutorial for wheezy.also i tried "modprobe ath9k" but nothing happens.
Secondly I tried this http://raghunath24.blogspot.com/2011/04 ... e-not.html but there is nowhere this file nm-system-settings.conf ..So what now?i have already done some aptitudes updates and some wireless settings from terminal but i am not sure if thats correct.so i want a full solution!
Sorry for my poor english but i am from greece... :oops:

If everything is fixed you should mark the thread as solved.
Excuse me if my English fails at times since I'm from Sweden. And so on, and so on.

Great, but so you've NOT solved the issue with NetworkManager?

because I have the same problem and I don't wanna use Wicd! :(
