    Gateway N214 / Atheros AR9287, slow WIFI

    First let me say that Ubuntu is great! I've used it in the past without any issues I couldn't fix by reading this forum. I have an Gateway N214 everything works great but the WIFI speed is sporadic and or non-existent. Please tell me what info you need and I'll get it for you.

    Re: Gateway N214 / Atheros AR9287, slow WIFI

    Okay I found this article http://pleph.appspot.com/init/posts/view/2657865 when
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 down sudo rmmod -f ath9k sudo modprobe ath9k nohwcrypt=1 sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    Is running in the terminal everything seems to be going great. After I close the terminal it returns to slow performance noticeable most when signing into sites like Facebook. What am I doing here? Can I make it permanent?
    I've also noticed that performance is better at start-up and slowly goes down from there. Thanks for your help!
