[opensuse-factory] [Tumbleweed] Wireless Issues on an atheros card
Hi I have a atheros card.. with the following configuration ( on tumbleweed)
Hardware Class: network
Model: "Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)"
Vendor: pci 0x168c "Atheros Communications Inc."
Device: pci 0x002b "AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)"
SubVendor: pci 0x17aa "Lenovo"
SubDevice: pci 0x30a1
Revision: 0x01
Driver: "ath9k"
Driver Modules: "ath9k"
Device File: wlan0
Features: WLAN

I am unable to conenct the internet through it.

I have tried the following approaches
One is the GNOME 3.0 Network Manager I see wireless as an option but
no networks are shown.

One of the solutions that I tried was rfkill
This was the output
rfkill list all
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
3: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

Now, I also looked up the command line solution
The result is as follows
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwlist wlan0 scan

iwconfig wlan0 essid NETWORK_ID key off
dhclient wlan0

But I am still unable to connect to the wireless. Any ideas?
