Re: Qualcomm Atheros 0042 (rev 31) 6Mb/s link speed

Yesterday I installed kernel 4.8.0-51. It did not improve the 6Mb/s link speed and poor signal strength as reported by the Linux Network Manager. And on the 2.4 band the manager still shows a link speed of only 1Mb/s. Speedtest.net shows average: ping-18, download 15.42 upload 2.55. About the same a...

I tried left shift then, right shift, then esc keys. Still can't access Grub. F12 does access boot menu, though I don't need in right now. Shouldn't I be able to access BIOS as well as Grub? I'd like to have a way to restore the kernel if something goes wrong. With a choice between the latest 4.8 an...
