I just wanted to check if there is anyone out there using the some setup, as I am struggling with this.
My router is a Dynalink RT 1046 and the Ethernet connection works fine. The wireles card in the laptop is and Atheros 9285.
My laptop does not seem to connect to the router when more than a few meters away (and always loses connection when moving around) though the net work strength is at maximum. I have tried all the usual things I could think of:

- updated drivers
- tested on other networks (the laptop card works fine there )
- tested other laptops on my network (also works fine)
- tried the connection unencrypted (same problem)

So my hope is to find someone who uses the same setup so I can compare the actual settings on the router and card.
Its a long shot but you never know...
