  Atheros AR9285 Wireless on Ubuntu 12.04 is slow, unstable and has a
  weak signal.

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In Windows 7 the signal is excellent, stable and strong. I use the
  netbook for every home, but in Ubuntu you can only connect a few
  meters away. In my university can not connect because the signal is
  too weak. In Windows 7 is okay. Everyone in my building at the
  university can connect very well with Windows. Who uses computer ath9k
  driver, no.

  Just search on Google to know that everyone who uses Atheros AR9285 have problems, even with computer hardware certified by Canonical:
