So I've been searching this site for a while and seen a couple people with similar problems, not quite the same but similar.

I thought I'd try their fixes and hope it works for me too but so far no success. Anyone willing to help a noob or point in the right direction please?

I have an Acer 5100 with Atheros 5005G wireless card (I'm not sure if that's the actual card for this laptop but th 5005G driver works fine on windows. Some people's Acer 5100 uses the AR2413 driver, not sure if they're interchangeable.)

When I type the command, modprobe -r ath_pci, it gives me the bt$# prompt but if I do the ifconfig or the iwconfig commands, it shows eth0 and lo.
(( Very similar problem in this thread: ))

However, I have tried what archangel and pureh@te suggested, but for one, I do not have a wireless card option in the BIOS. And for two, I connect fine to the internet before I try unloading the module.

Any advice please?
