    Question drivers for eeepc 1005ha ? difficulties with wifi and ethernet

    I have some difficulties with my eee pc 1005ha C
    my wireless and ethernet hardware :
    • Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller
    • Atheros AR9285 wireless network adapter


    According to different sources of information I have found they seem that these cards are compatible with backtrack 4 final release

    During the boot I think that backtrack initializes the drivers(?)
    At this stage occurs for a negative answer, the hardwares prohibit their re-boot

    my wireless card and ethernet card does not work, I have sound but no drivers detected the sound card
    I tested several solutions to solve this problem
    - by downloading ath9k/compat-wireless (I can not install, I followed the manipulation and I get a error messages)
    - a specially modified for this pc (ditto)
    - a patch for linux, descargar atheros chipset on their site, unfortunately Unable to download at Atheros Communications

    if someone have the same problems?
    I need a method to efficiently install my drivers and(finally) enjoy on backtrack4
    I am not very precise manipulation that I do ,I would restore if necessary

    I have a 1005HA-P both the wireless and ethernet are detected fine. Have you verified they are indeed missing and not just down ?. Open a console window & run the command: " ifconfig -a " (without quotes). Then copy and paste the output here.

    update: I forgot to say, you may want to go into the BIOS. Double check that ethernet & wireless are enabled.

    Like MosGuy says about checking to see if wifi is enabled. l've had a coupla eeepc's that came with the default disabled.
    Also, just pressing the FN key with the wireless key at top will switch wireless off and on.
    And BT4-FINAL sees the ath0 chip as wlan0 l think.
