Wireless drop out with Linux Mint 15 – another fix (solved)

The recent install has gone really well and the replacement of WINDOWS 8 has really made the asus S300 fly except the odd drop out from the wifi or poor signal. so yet another fix required and fast I HATE DROP OUTS.

search the forums they have a few idea’s on the cure HERE

try this cut and paste into terminal (simples)

Open Dash and search for Terminal and open it
wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/2013/06/18/backports-20130618.tar.xz
tar xvf backports-20130618.tar.xz
cd backports-20130618
make defconfig-ath9k
make
sudo make install
(insert your password when sudo asks it).
Ready! Reboot the computer

success I’ve gone from 43% signal to 73% 3 from 4 bars on the signal strength (well better than it was)

Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
