Bug Description

I have tried different drivers, currently running the (Ath9k) that defaulted with 12.10. There is no /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf and I have yet to see anything else get added to that folder when I install "wcid" either. I am new to Linux after being a windows "tool" for years. Anyway I know my way around the terminal a little and I'm comfortable with Python. I've spent a fair amount of time on this issue, but before I throw hours and days at it till it's fixed, I thought I would ask the community for help.

I have an Asus laptop with a Atheros Wifi Card -

My wifi does connect and sometimes it stays connected for hours, but other times it just keeps on disconnecting. Everything works fine when I switch over to Win7, which I still have installed as a 2nd OS. I'm also trying to hunt down the driver bug for a Brother MFC-615j printer using the cupswrapper that's recommended, but have yet to succeed and print a test print.

Please ask me for any information you need to help me with this. I will very quickly reply with anything you request, but please keep in mind that I am still new to Linux, so terminal commands need to be disclosed as I have yet to learn them all. :)

Thanks in advanced!!!
