Odd issue with Atheros AR9285 WIFI. It came up and integrated immediately. The odd thing that happens to me is, if I get more than 30 ft from my router I lose the connection. At first I thought it was a problem with the laptop, BUT it does not have issues with windows installed.

The only other issue I am struggling with is trying to get alsa/pulse to locate the internal microphone. The rest of the system has come up fine.

enter BIOS and set the network-boot at 1ºplace in bootoptions and never get any wireless problems.

terrible wireless issues.
i have tried everything.
only install if you will use ethernet or replace your wireless nic.

not worth the headache!

Do you have the Broadcom or Atheros wireless controller?
