Without that my wireless still disconnected and I'd lose my bluetooth mouse on any sign of sleep. Just did a 3 hour session with no disconnects, wireless or bluetooth, and my monitor had dropped to sleep at least twice.


well I did not blacklisted any modules. All seems working fine by now ;-)

I'm on Acer Aspire E1-571G with same Atheros AR9462 Wireless Network Adapter and same problem on Linux Mint 16. This is my first Linux and first problem with it so was very clueless about what to do. After searching forums in this topic i've found:

$ sudo modprobe -r ath9k
$ sudo modprobe ath9k btcoex_enable=1


It did job for me and my Wi-Fi works as it should now. Thanks :)
