Bug#622753: ath9k: Connection over wlan slows down and dies
since sunday I am running kernel 2.6.38-2-amd64 (uname -a) (dselect version 2.6.38-5). The wlan module works now almost
perfect. The "almost" is due to the fact that connection the machine to the android hotspot somehow fails. But all other
hotspots I used until now work as expected.
Huge thank-you from me!

Thanks, I've set our bug tracker to follow that bug.
Has it been established that it's the same bug though?
I had a brief read of that and I'm not so sure. There's so many things
that could impact TX throughput.
I don't have this problem on FreeBSD on my AR9285 NICs and I've ported
almost all of the (non-power saving) related code from ath9k. They
happily sit at the expected TX/RX speeds in 11g and 11n modes.
Is someone who is experiencing the problem able to do some kernel
version bisecting between the known good and known bad kernel?
The bug fix from the report on Bugzilla has been included in stable
release 126.96.36.199 and Debian's version 2.6.38-5.
Does this version fix the problem for you?
