  DEPMOD  3.8.0-33-generic

depmod will prefer updates/ over kernel/ -- OK!

Note:
You may or may not need to update your initramfs, you should if
any of the modules installed are part of your initramfs. To add
support for your distribution to do this automatically send a
patch against "update-initramfs.sh". If your distribution does not
require this send a patch with the '/usr/bin/lsb_release -i -s'
("Ubuntu") tag for your distribution to avoid this warning.

Your backported driver modules should be installed now.
Reboot.

Best Answer

'Can't read private key' may safely be ignored. The ending message was not 'abort' but, instead, 'Your backported driver modules should be installed now. Reboot.' I suggest you do so. Then check that the correct module is being used:

modinfo ath9k

The version should be:

version:        backported from Linux (v3.12-0-g5e01dc7) using backports v3.12-1-0-g9ae6b6c

And your wireless should be working as expected.
