    Question Upgrade or ndiswrapper?


    I have been having lots of problems with my wireless connection. Either it is slow or it won't persist for more than 30 seconds. I am using the ath5k driver. I have tried various fixes. Is upgrading to the latest LTS version or trying to use ndiswrapper more likely to succeed? I'm on Version 11 LTS currently.

    There is no version 11 LTS, so if you're on 11.04 you have al;ready lost support; if you are on 11.10, you will only get support for another 4 months.

    If I were you I would move to 12.04. I have no idea if that will solve your wireless problem, but you will need to upgrade the distro soon, so why not now.

    You can use the gnome-panel fallback classic desktop if you want to very easily. See if that is your choice.
