Atheros Communication Device 1083 not working on Linux mint
I bought a new desktop computer without an OS.
I installed Linux Mint as the only OS.
There is no internet connection.
The Atheros Communication Device 1083 does not work.
uname -a shows
Linux myname-desktop 2.6.32-21-generic #32 -Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 16 08:10:02 UTC 2010 i686/Linux.
I have downloaded and unpacked AR81 Family-Linux -v184.108.40.206.tar
with the understanding that the correct driver is in this tar.
However I am not sure which driver to install. Also, I am not sure how to
install a driver.
Am I on the right path?
