Can anyone confirm this?

To reproduce it, find the version of your kernel, by running the command:

uname -r

For instance, I have:

uname -r
3.13.0-88-lowlatency

Then install the generic Linux image of the same version. For me, that is:

sudo apt install linux-image-3.13.0-88-generic

Then reboot and from the GRUB menu select "Advanced options for Trisquel GNU/Linux" and choose the -generic kernel to boot with.

Then check if network works in the loaded system. Thanks in advance!

I'm not running Trisquel anymore, but I had a generic kernel and my ath9k_htc adapter worked fine.
EDIT: Or was there an updated kernel that broke it?

Bump. Can someone install and boot with the generic kernel and see if network works? It's very easy to help with this and you'll be able to boot back with the lowlatency kernel (and uninstall the generic one). Thanks!

I have been using "linux-image-generic-lts-wily" and an AR9271 Wifi dongle for many months: no problem. Of course, "open-ath9k-htc-firmware" is installed as well (is it on your system?).
