Hi guys I finally switch over. I tried Xubuntu 12.04 for over a week dual booting with Window 7. I fell in love with Xubuntu 12.04 everything is working correctly except I had to modified so I can have a stablet internet speed. Wow it was slow without doing so. Sometime it wont response. This is what I did.

Create a new file /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf:

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf

Add the following line to it:

options ath9k nohwcrypt=1

So this is the fix for Atheros AR9287 wifi.
