I have an intel wireless card. This is the lspci entry:

03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] (rev 34)

I have a lot of trouble connecting to certain access points (ie, the connection dies often/won't successfully reconnect) in linux, whereas I am able to connect in Windows on the same laptop.

What should I do to fix the connectivity issues? Try different/proprietary drivers? Something else?

If it helps, this is my lsmod: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6041598/

Please see here: askubuntu.com/questions/66810/… Be sure to implement the solution for 12.04 and later. –  chili555 Aug 29 '13 at 20:18
@chili555 Tried to implement solution documented there -- did not improve wifi connectivity (I can re-paste my lsmod once I'm somewhere where I can get wifi in linux, if it helps) –  alecb Aug 30 '13 at 15:41
Can you chat here about it? chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/info/10386/intel?tab=general –  chili555 Aug 30 '13 at 16:14
We don't need lsmod; instead: cat /etc/modprobe.d/intel_11n_disable.conf –  chili555 Aug 30 '13 at 16:32
