About Atheros 9xxx 802.11n chipset:
* Check ath9k stability for main inclusion on Karmic

This would be really helpful, I currently have a ath9k (edit: oops, actually ar9170) card which does not work with Ubuntu :-) -- Tom Wright

[asac]: there seems to be not much content in the spec document. what actions are associated with this "essential" spec?

[DONE] Driver ar9170 full working on Karmic. I've tested it with a Netgear WN111v2 (0846:9001) and WPA encryption. -- Daniele Napolitano

Fix iwlagn to work properly with 4965AGN. SW & HW resets when working at high load and high interference environment.

Doing post Karmic clean up. This BP is complete to the best of Karmic's ability. The end solution is to use karmic's wireless backports to get the latest wifi goodness. -pgraner
