Just moved from Mandriva 2010.1 to Ubuntu 10.10 and am having problems with the wifi. It connects fine, but tends to grind to a halt every now and then. I always have this problem with Ubuntu... hence me migrating to Mandriva in the past. My card uses the Atheros AR5007G Wifi chipset.
I'd quite like to get this fixed. So, using ndiswrapper, I installed the windows drivers.
I just bought a D-Link DWA-160 revision B2. Little did I know that this revision comes with a Ralink chipset. The main reason why I got DWA-160 is because I already have one and I'm pretty happy with it.

...I swear by all that anyone has ever held holy, I'm gonna hurl. Especially the ones with the rtl8192cu chipset (I've found several at Newegg with this, thanks to the wikidevi website), which I've only been able to get to work consistently with 3.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64.Right now I'm looking at this wifi card for my desktop, which, according to wikidevi, has the Atheros AR9285
I've just installed Ubuntu 12.04.2.
Wired internet is no problem.
When i go to additional drivers (when i'm wired conected) i don't get a list of proprietary drivers.
So i want to search the driver by my self but can't find im.
Can sombody help?
