I tried download the very latest drivers from Linux Wireless site http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Do...ng_the_tarball, compiled them and still had a problem with the ath9k module (although it did seem to be a little bit better then the one released with 9.10).
Still, for now, I'm going to go back to Madwifi module. Hopefully Atheros will fix the ath9k code since they are the ones who initially released the code for the ath9k module.
I stand corrected. I am still hoping for a fix soon. I prefer 9.10 over 9.04. I think it has a couple of new features that are worth the upgrade. I will continue to use the madwifi drivers. They are not perfect but they are still pretty good. Since I don't use this particular computer for gaming, I don't mind.
I know it is frustrating, but it's listed as a bug with the Linux Kernel Bug tracker. For those who are interested in seeing the problems you can look at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/buglist.c...cksearch=ath9k
Also more info can be found at Linux Wireless link http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k/bugs
I'm actually finding the latest Compat-wireless drivers to work pretty good now, I seem to get almost 25 Mbps of throughput on my wireless G network and I don't seem to be dropping connection anymore!

I don't know what I did but this doesn't work. I can't use the external button on my laptop to turn the wireless on. Is there a way i can at least undo what I did before?
and reboot. See if that fixes the problem.sudo mv /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath_pci.conf /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath_pci.conf.bak

I'm using the the latest version of compact-wireless from http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Do...ng_the_tarball that I compiled.
After further use, I've had mixed success. Sometime they work great, sometimes they drop connection.
