    But, to me, ath9k is still a pain, unstable, bad performances...

    Just an example: with OSX, I can watch HDTV over my ADSL connection. Try this with Ubuntu, impossible, even SDTV is not watchable because (I assume) of the bad wireless.

    But, I would be very happy to read a solution does exist. So, I'm looking forward to read some good news Cyberdork33.

    unfortunately, it is just the state of the driver at the moment. atheros, while they are working with developers to get an open driver made, is still proprietary, closed hardware. It's just going to take some time.

    Things were getting much better, then all the bug reports opened up again recently. Something must have changed that made things bad again.

    If you read a few posts back, this script is old, and should not be used anymore.

    Re: ath9k

    Any new news on this topic? i recently installed ubuntu on my asus g50vm-x1, and am having some strange issues with the wifi card (which happens to be an atheros ar928x).

    The network manager seemed to pick up WiFi fine when i am in the live cd, but when i have it installed on my laptop it doesnt want to pick up any wifi!

    -Edit-

    Sorry, i didn't notice that this thread was for Apple users until after i posted (did a search and this came up)

    However, if anyone does know how to get this working for a windows laptop, or can point me in the right direction, i would GREATLY appreciate it!

    Re: ath9k

    Hi all,

    For already two evenings I've tried to get my ASUS C90s laptop with a AR5008 (ath9k) driver working. Problems started when I replaced my wireless router by a linksys wrt610N: My 802.11g connection is very unstable and my 802.11n connection utterly useless.

    The router is secured by WPA2.

    I'm running Ubuntu Jaunty, kernel 2.8.28-15-generic, 64-bit.

    I've even tried to get ndiswrapper working, but I cannot get (64-bit) drivers working. However, I would strongly prefer native linux drivers.

    It is true that the ath9k drivers are that unstable? Is there any other way to get my wireless connection working?

    Any feedback is welcome!

    Roalt

    I have an HP Pavillion Elite 9510f, which has an AR982x in it as well, and I found that the 32bit driver works very good, not quite as good as the windows driver (in windows), but still very usable. Whereas the 64bit is horrible, it connects when it wants to, and only for as long as it wants to, which is usually about fifteen seconds or so, giver or take. So I too am having trouble with it, I thought maybe it'll be in the updates, but I can't get any of the updates because my only connection is wireless.

    Need your piece of advice.
    Is it possible to find somewhere ath9k dated after April 2009 ?

    Hi all!

    I have the AR928X in my Acer Aspire 5730Z and have this problem on Ubuntu 11.04. Long-time high speed connection break transmissions without disconecting. I try some methods:
    - ath9.conf - not-work
    - router reconfiguration - not-work
    - use wicd instead network-manager and this is it!

    Finaly disabled network-manager service and enable wicd permamenty. All works good for me. Meybe you should do it too?
