    Atheros AR9485 / Gateway NE56R34u

    Hello everyone. This is my first post so if I screwed something up, sorry 8)

    I recently purchased a Gateway NE56R34u for my brother. I put Ubuntu 12.04 on it and sometimes after I put in my wireless password it will attempt to connect but never actually make the connection. This will go on for a few minutes or longer. Eventually if I wait long enough it will connect. Then it usually stays connected for a long while. But this is very annoying.

    I don't know much about computers but I can follow detailed directions. Based on from what i've been reading I think you will need the below information from me.

    lo no wireless extensions.
