Not sure if this is relevant but I had the same problem and looks like
the solution for the laptop I was servicing was this (I left this on the
thread that I had started on the user mailing list):
Just letting people know of the fix for this unit.
The laptop's owner returned it so that I could work on a possible fix to
the wifi connection. After some testing and trouble shooting, I deleted
the NetworkManager through the MCC which allowed a more reliable
connection and I also created this file in etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf
with the line "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" which for some unknown reason
made for an even more solid connection <-- I found this recommendation
on a thread somewhere but lost the location.
The laptop now connects to the internet and does not turn itself out,
and, it no longer cuts in and out randomly.
