Ubuntu: Lost wifi ubuntu 16.04, atheros AR9287


I have just rebooted my laptop after getting ubuntu up to date and now have no wifi and no other way to connect to the internet (Ethernet not working).

The results from lshw -C network show that the network controller is UNCLAIMED. All was well before the reboot.

I would like to put the results of lshw -C network in this question but without Internet it's not possible, I could type it but there could be typos.

*-network UNCLAIMED

There was an entry for the Ethernet too but I'm picking you don't need that.
