I'm new to ubuntu and i'm having all sorts of problems,
My wifi connection is super slow and intermittent, sometimes it randomly disconnects so I was wondering how do I go about to update the drivers for the adapter?
Also, it keeps blinking when transfering data which I find extremely annoying, I have read and tried diferrent solutions about editing the wlan.conf file and adding options iwlwifi led_mode=1 but it doesn't work for me, and I'm guessing it has something to do with the driver, I feel like i'm missing a line or using a setting for an intels adapter rather than an atheros.
I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 64 bits in a HP Pavilion DV7-1245dx.
