Comment 20 for bug 414560

hi,

as described in bug ... i worked around this problem by disabling two new features in ATH9K (power management and rfkill polling) that were described as possibly buggy in ath9k-devel.

i have put a rebuilt version of linux-backports-modules on this PPA:
https://launchpad.net/~frank-dekervel/+archive/ppa

for me it brings back jaunty-like performance.
i don't know much about ppa's and when i have to re-upload the package (on every new linux-image ? or only when the version number increases?), but it seems to work on my computer.

i used the package linux-backports-modules-2.6.31-10-generic (version 2.6.31-10.12kervel2)
see also my comments in bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+bug/378156 and http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13807

sorry for the crossposting but i believe that all these bugreports are related.

greetings,
frank
