Restoring Madwifi on Acer Aspire 4315 after Kernel Update

Thanks first to: Link at

Make sure you are using the latest wifi drivers:

If so, you just need to get to the directory you have the madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007 (or similar) file in:

e.g. cd ~/Desktop/storage/madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007 in my case


sudo make

sudo make install

sudo modprobe ath_pci

sudo reboot

If not, you must do the following first:


tar xfz madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz
