I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop a couple of days ago. What I noticed is that my wireless card LED (it's a atheros card, driver is ath9k) isn't blinking anymore on network activity. it did when I used windows on this machine (the blink frequency depended on the bandwidth, from slower to faster) and it kinda worked with Ubuntu 10.10 (though it would blink at the same speed, no matter what bandwidth speed). Now, with Ubuntu 11.10 it just stays on when the card is enable, it stays off when I power it off. I need it to blink, cause it gives me indication of the network speed, so I can see if the download speed is at its max speed or not.
I've searched everywhere, but I only found tips on how to disable the LED blink, rather than enable it.
can anyone help me please? thanks
