    Re: Wifi works only when next to router

    Please do:
    Code:
    echo "options ath5k nohwcrypt=Y" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath5k.conf
    sudo modprobe -rfv ath5k
    sudo modprobe -v ath5k
    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
    Reboot

    Does that help?
