Unable to get wifi working on acer aspire with Atheros AR9285
have the same problem as some one else with debian squeeze earlier a while ago. I get the same message as below

There were several suggestions on adding contrib non-free and similar sopurce lists and doing an update. Another suggestion was to apt get firmware:ath9
did all that and still no luck. Any suggestions?
Which kernel are you running? It must be 2.6.29 or newer, then you can use the builtin ath9k module.
Secondly, check this.

Thanks. Yes the kernel is the same. I already tried the procedure outlined in the link you posted. I was on that link before and followed the procedure. May be I will try that again and check my steps. will post the result here. Thanks again
