Hi, I've spent all weekend on this -can't believe it! The AR928x (module ath9k) is there and must be working because it shows me the ESSID on my router and another nearby wireless network also shows up-but it just won't go beyond the router to the internet (there is a red x on that part) so the internal lan works but something stops it going beyond that.
I finally went out and bought another wireless router -same thing.
The windows laptops owned by people who live in my house all have no problem, it is only the pclinuxos on my laptop (acer extensia 5630) which has the problem. It worked fine for over a year then all of a sudden refuses to budge.
If you are willing to step me through a process of elimination using the terminal (for example) I'm good at copy and pasting commands
and I would be most grateful -the only other choice I have is a full re-install
