Hey guys,

I know there are a couple posts about this already, but the solutions for the other guys don't seem to be working for me. Right now, I am using linux-backports to get the card to work. It works off and on. I stopped using network manager because it dropped the signal like every 5 minutes. Wicd works better but still drops the signal. Its weird, if I hit refresh on Wicd, it will sometimes jump start it and the signal will reconnect other times nothing will work. I also do sudo modprobe -r ath9k the sudo modprobe ath9k. And SOMETIMES that will work to get it to reconnect. Other times, nothing works, restart, poweroff, etc.

I tried loading up compat-wirless first, but that didn't work at all so I gave up on that.

Thanks!

Also, I am using jaunty 64bit.
2.6.28-15-generic x86_64

[QUOTE=ssc351;7881414]Hey guys,

I know there are a couple posts about this already, but the solutions for the other guys don't seem to be working for me. Right now, I am using linux-backports to get the card to work. It works off and on. I stopped using network manager because it dropped the signal like every 5 minutes. Wicd works better but still drops the signal. Its weird, if I hit refresh on Wicd, it will sometimes jump start it and the signal will reconnect other times nothing will work. I also do sudo modprobe -r ath9k the sudo modprobe ath9k. And SOMETIMES that will work to get it to reconnect. Other times, nothing works, restart, poweroff, etc.


It seems that you detect a lot of wireless networks, but only on certain channels. If the desired one is the one on channel 1 it has competition with another at about the same strength signal. You may want to change channels on your router.

I tried changing channels but it didn't help...I am pretty sure the problem lies within the computer...on Wicd, when it drops the signal, it I click refresh or do and iwlist scan...no networks show up

Well, I've been struggling with this as well on my eee pc 1000HE, which uses the ath9k driver. It seems that there is hope in the future. I found the following developer thread, which suggests it might get better with kernel 2.6.30 and 2.6.31.

http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0904.0/03343.html

on my eeepc I have it setup to unload the driver and reload it based on the eeepc-utilities and hotkeys. It makes things tolerable for now.
