    I have an Acer Aspire 3680, and I noticed that my wifi is really bad on my Vista partition (I can barely move spots without disconnecting or slowing down) But my ubuntu partition wifi is perfect. I can move around freely and hardly ever disconnect. The Atheros drivers are installed correctly, I believe. So I don't know what the problem could be,.

    Do you have the latest wireless driver from Acer's web site?

    I believe I do. Could you direct me to the drivers just in case?

    All my drivers have all been updated.

    No, I cannot, because even though I'm almost at the driver, this link will only put you to the beginning of the path. Plus I don't know exactly what system you have. If Vista Home Premium 32-bit then it's the circled LAN in the attachment.
