I have problems with PB Easynote TJ65 and Ubuntu 11.10. The wifi connection is slower compared to 11.04.... annoying during live video streaming (TV, etc...)

Could you help me, please? Here some info:

What should I do? Should I disable the N connection? How? And this... what does it mean? Thanks a lot!!

I tried with this sudo -s echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf But nothing :( –  palimmo Oct 20 '11 at 14:08
