Hi I have an Atheros AR928x and I have problems connecting to the internet constantly. Either I'll be connected then get disconnected or I wont be able to connect to a router in the first place. I figured I'd try to install up to date drivers on it, but not sure how to get a hold of them since the Atheros website is no help when it comes to linux (go figure).

Also, I've heard this wireless card is crap for linux and was wondering if anyone knew of a better one I could get. I've looked into the Dell 1510 and was wondering if anyone had any success with it in ubuntu Jaunty. The problem with getting a new wireless card is that I'm limited to a half size mini-PCI E Wifi Card since I have a netbook. I have the MSI Wind U123-004US.
