http://forums.fedoraforum.org – HI I have installed F17 on a new Acer Laptop that belongs to my wife. Release 17 (BeefyMiracle) 64-bit Kernel Linux 3.5.3-1.fc17.x86_64 GNOME 3.4.2. At what appears to be random times the Wifi connections drops. A reboot brings it back but what could be causing this dropping of the wireless connection? The wifi card is shown from 'lspci' as ----> 03:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01). Other computers that I use do not have this issue. I have searched posts on this forum but nothing solved with similar symptoms. Any help w (HowTos)
