    Installing Drivers?

    Hello folks,

    I am an absolute beginner, downloaded 10.10 tonight. Everything has gone smoothly so far (I hope).

    My laptop is a samsung r580.

    I am having problems with my wireless connection, the connection drops from 150mbs to 1mbps. I searched online and this seems like a common problem when using the Atheros AR9285 wireless card.

    All forms/blogs suggested downloading compat-wirelss 2.6 package, which I have done. They then suggest re-installing the Ath9k driver, I can locate the folder but being a complete novice, I have no idea how to install.

    Could anyone give me advice?

    Thanks for the link, it has given me the knowledge on how drivers are installed. I successfully reloaded the driver but my connection was still dropping. I changed the IPV6 value on my config file to 1 and the connection has been fine for the last 20 minutes
