    Atheros ar5bwb222 always drops wireless connection


    Hi i have an acer aspire V5-473G with Atheros ar5bwb222 wireless network installed in device manager but it always drops internet connection which is kinda bad for me because i use my laptop for gaming. I always get disconnected or high ping spikes while playing. My question is can i uninstall this and install the other network driver which is in the listed wireless driver of my laptop in acer site , like broadcom or intel wireless drivers. Here's a screenshot of the available wireless drivers for my laptop model

    I had that card in my laptop for some time, worked great. How far are you from the router/AP?
