    Default version 5, R3, Atheros wifi obtain ip address

    I have just installed BT5, R3 on Acer laptop. with Atheros card. I can see the following details
    # lshw -C network
    *-network
    description: Wireless interface
    product: AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter
    vendor: Atheros Communications Inc.
    physical id: 0
    bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0
    logical name: wlan0
    version: 01
    serial: 44:6d:57:a1:fc:6f
    width: 64 bits
    clock: 33MHz
    In WICD, i can see wifi, but when i try to connect, it stops at obtaining ip, and then gives error of the same.

    How to solve this???

    If vm install, internal wifis won't work...IF hd install, are you using WEP or WPA-WPA2?...Is driver loaded by kernel athk9?
