Yes I found that removing the interface from the control of network
manager works fine. Using the ath9k driver by default. Initially I
discovered by accident that the wireless regulatory domain needed to be
set to GB, then things started to happen. The flakiness appears to be a
hardware problem. In the same location my laptop worked at link levels
of 60% or so. The X51 reported 61-62% and kept dropping out. Moved the
test rig downstairs, close to the router and wireless connections have
remained steady all the time, link levels 82% - 100%, downloads at up to
38 MBps over cable.
