My Acer came with the Atheros AR9462 and it's giving me problems. The ath9k nohwcrypt solution seems like it helped a little bit--but only delayed the inevitable dropping networks every few minutes, unable to connect, etc.
I've looked into compat-wireless but can't figure out how to get it installed and set up.
$ uname -r 3.4.0 $ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic ... The following extra packages will be installed: linux-headers-3.8.0-30 linux-headers-3.8.0-30-generic
Is there something weird going on with my Chrubuntu install (Ubuntu on Chromebook) that's making my kernel weird? Any other suggestions?
