[Solved] Lenovo G580 network not working atheros ar8162 ar9485

Hello, I've installed Crunchbang Waldorf onto my laptop (Lenovo G580) and everything works, except for networking.
lspci says the following for my network interfaces:
Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR8162 Fast Ethernet (rev 10)
Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

Please tell me if i need to run any more commands to provide more info
Thanks

Try installing a more recent kernel - towo(aptosid), liquorix, debian kernel from experimental...
You can use 'smxi' to install the towo or liquorix kernel.

I installed firmware-atheros, which made my wifi work, but my wired network doesn't work.
