Hi All,

We've been witnessing a few reports from users running Karmic regarding
poor connection and performance with Atheros wifi cards, particularly
using the ath5k driver.  There has also been some similarity in these
cases that the users are also on IBM hw (for ex. thinkpad's).  We'd
appreciate for anyone with IBM hardware with an Atheros wifi card
utilizing the ath5k driver to give us your feedback.  We've opened a
master tracking bug [1] to gather any debug information.  If you are
experiencing connection and performance issues running the latest
Karmic, please add your apport-collect information [2] to the bug.

Thanks in advance,
The Ubuntu Kernel Team
