    Lightbulb ath9k AR9287 Wireless Driver not reading fixed

    Here is my Driver for those who have ath9k drivers and are interested in seeing the full details:

    Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

    Now, for those who are still having issues with the ath9k drivers, the solution is way simpler than running patches and compiling and installing packages.

    I was furiously researching for three days until I found the solution.

    Check your Kernel version with:
    uname -a

    if it is a older Kernel i.e. 2.6+ go ahead and get a Backtrack os update

    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    after your os upgrades, go ahead and reebot your computer.

    You can run either of these commands:
    reboot or shutdown -r now

    After you get your computer back on go ahead and load up Backtrack and login and run the following command

    uname -a

    Make sure your Kernel has been upgraded to the latest Kernel Linux bt 3.2.6

    After that your wireless driver should be working fine!
    Some of the Kernels listed on Backtrack that they say are compatible with the ath9k drivers are not.
    If you want to be sure they will run, and you can't find the answer, the easiest and fastest solution is to just run the update.

    This may work on other wireless drivers, but I have not tested this, if you try this with another wireless driver and it works, please post it as well!

    Hope this helps those of you out there with ath9k drivers!

    best of luck,
