Hello there,
I tried to install solaris 11 Express to my new Acer 4740 laptop. Everything just went fine until I found that my wireless driver is not recognized. The following message appeared in Device Driver Utility
Device: "Atheros Communications Inc. AR9287 Wireless network Adapter"
Driver: "Misconfigured: [arn]"
I tried to install either arn or ath drivers but both failed and shows the same result.
