Hi. I have just recently upgraded the PCI wireless card in my computer from a DWL-520 to a WPN311 which connects to my DI-524 router. Using the driver Ubuntu selected i was easily able to connect to the Internet.
However i noticed 3 minor problems that i wanted to solve. The signal strength was woefully low, my P2P program was unable to utilize UPNP and I could not log into the router itself from Ubuntu. These problems seem to disappear when i boot into windows.
I have already changed drivers from "Support for Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN Cards" to "Support for 5xxx series of Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN Cards" and the only change is an improvement to the signal strength.
I apologize if this plea for help is not properly formed or absent important info but its late and i wasn't sure what exactly to do.
Please help.
