- Installing driver for Atheros AR8131 4 answers
I am new to Ubuntu world since I've been using it for near a year or so. Software is great, but I have some hardware issues.
Along with Ubuntu 14.04 come kernel witch was ok – some minor issues : bluetooth and wireless were constantly turning on after reboot - fine. With Ubuntu 14.10 and kernel 3.16 things slightly improve on bluetooth side – good. With 3.18.8 things got back they wore -bad. But then I installed kernel 3.19 and things got worse. Now my ethernet connection have problem. I can start it, load a page, then it turns off, then on..... I can't use old kernel forever and newer kernels are worse than the old ones.
My laptop is Lenovo y580 with: Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 08) Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 2200 (rev c4).
How do I solve this problems, no software could help (blueman,windows wireless drivers, network tools)? Can I download a single driver for each device if some of the issues come back with newer kernels? Should I report this problems and where? I understand it's not an easy task.
