    For those that get the 1103, if anyone could post a log after booting a recent linux image (at least 2011, the newer the better)

    lspci

    and

    dmesg | grep ath

    I'd really like to know what the output is, especially for the eeprom.

    Would Ubuntu 11.04 live CD work for you?

    Just to confirm-all those who preordered their wireless cards before July 20th, had their cards shipped today. You'll be getting your tracking information within next couple of days

    Huh, so my 1103 I got from dell has really weak reception. The previous M18x I sent back had nearly full reception of a bunch of wireless networks and my ipad, wife's macbook pro and android atrix never have this issue. My screen gets replaced tomorrow and I'll look at it when the tech gets it back together. If there's another dead pixel or anything else, I'm sending this back.

    When I run the bandwidth test via the Bigfoot Killer Network Manager Network tab is fails. Does it fails for others?

    Problem Solved. I found that Bigfoot has an updated driver July 2011 that resolved the issue. The version that was on my M18x was dated March 2011 9.2.0.209 and the updated version is 9.2.0.318
