wlan card (AR928X, ath9k) slow since upgrade to natty beta 2

Asked by decker on 2011-04-13

Since upgrade to Natty my wireless card is not working at full speed anymore. The card itsself seems fine as it reaches full speed when booted under windows. Also, it does not seem to be a general network problem, because the LAN connection is fine. The card connects, but download speed is awfully slow.
