The “No scan results” may be caused by a radio-kill switch set to off, or some
such problem. The output of the ‘dmesg’ command is the place to look. That will
be too big to post here. If you cannot interpret it, use pastebin or a similar
site and post the URL. You should also post the results of ‘lspci -nnk | grep
9285’. I’m pretty sure that your device uses ath9k as the driver, but that info
will confirm it. Note that ath9k is undergoing heavy development, and
compat-wireless might work better than the standard kernel.

/sbin/lspci -nnk | grep 9285

03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) [168c:002b] (rev 01)

thank you for replying.
and i try ‘dmesg | less’ it was too much line for it. can you give me advice for this posting to the pastebin or other URL?
thank you.

got some pastebin dmesg command line.
