I've searched for an answer by myself for a very long time but nothing helped me.
I can't turn my wifi on (although it works perfectly with Windows) and I can't use ethernet for other reasons. I've already tried
rfkill and "create a shortcut.." but neither of those worked for me..
I'm using a Lenovo G40 with Windows 10 as Primary OS and Ubuntu 14.04 as a dual boot.
For both commands.. (
lspci -knn | grep Net -A2 ) ..the output was:
02:00.0 Network controller : Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0036] (rev 01) Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:4026] Kernel driver in use: ath9k
Here's the output for
