I have a HP G60-630us that I installed iatkos Lion L2. I didn't check before installing so I don't know for sure but I believe it has an atheros 9285 wireless card. I installed a kext I found for this card and it seemed to work. os x recognized my wireless card. unfortunately it couldn't find any networks. after fooling around a bit it discovered my networks and I was able to connect to the internet. a short while later I rebooted and now can't find any networks again. how can i get this working?

in system profiler I see the following under the wi-fi


Software Versions:

CoreWLAN: 2.1.1 (211.3)

CoreWLANKit: 1.0.1 (101.1)

EDIT: after opening up the compartment on the underside of my laptop I find the actual model of my wireless is AR5B95-H. I've been trying kexts to get this to work but am now not able to get it to recognize it as wireless hardware at all. please help
