Lately I change my VivoBook 500ca for Linux.

I installed the latest Mint Cinnamon. I have been having some problems with my wireless card :

   description: Wireless interface
   product: AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter
   vendor: Atheros Communications Inc.
   physical id: 0

When I start my PC everything works perfectly for about 10 minutes and then I get disconnected from my wireless network.

Any ideas why I keep getting disconnected?
