Wireless speed dropping often (ath9k driver) - workaround
My AR9285 onboard wireless adaptor was constantly dropping speed, often to 1Mb/sec = very slow surfing. Tried fixing the rate at 54M then 36M - no effect.
Finally ran (in terminal): iwconfig wlan0 retry 255
Speed now stays at around 54Mb/sec. Not sure if any significant adverse consequences, but it works.
