I had the same issue with me and the wifes wifi
we both have a Atheros AR9287 ath9k
find that out by putting
inxi -N
in the terminal, if that's yours then I just put this in the terminal
sudo sh -c "echo 'options ath9k nohwcrypt=1' > /etc/modprobe.d/custom-wireless.conf"
we never had another issue since.
Our wifi would last for a few minutes then go out then come back, unplugged the router, plug it back it comes back on again for a few more minutes, turn the wireless off on the computer turn it back it comes back on for a few minutes etc etc etc blah blah blah :lol:
ya it was frustrating for us, especially when the connection says 80 to 90% all the time, we had to plug it in to download anything.
If Atheros AR9287 ath9k is not yours then please put
inxi -N
in the terminal and post the results so others can help you out, I'm sure someone probably had the same issue and more then likely has the fix for yours but they will need to know what you got first.

Sorry, don't know the policy on how to refer to another post.

Not the same, but the steps and process might help you.
