ath9k module unstable in kernel 3.9
Last modified: 2013-08-14 11:16:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Starting with kernel 3.9 the module ath9k is not working properly. The connection through WiFi fails sometimes and can't authenticate anymore. Only a cold boot fixes the issue until it fails again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Fedora with kernel 3.9
2.Connect to WiFi network using ath9k
3.Normal Internet and network access
When it looses the connection can't authenticate again, no matter what you do.
Stable connection as with kernel 3.8
I experimented this issue with Fedora 16. It was fixed until kernel-3.8.11-200.fc18.x86_64 that is working fine.
Please post the output of lspci -vv
Add a copy of of
dmesg > dmesg.txt
Would be helpful too!
