I was using ath9k on a netbook in various locations (travels) and
circumstances.  So far this netbook has on it Fedora 10 but with
2.6.29 kernels. "Standard" 2.6.27 F10 kernels were not suitable due
to various wireless issues :-).  In that configuration ath9k worked
very well even in some rather trying conditions (although I do not
know if I really bumed into something of n type; my router at home
is few years old and it surely does not have a whiff of such
protocol).  Sounds like an upcoming upgrade will bring headaches.
