My wireless lan connection requires password every 2 minutes

Hi everybody, my wireless lan connection keeps disconnecting and asking to type in password. When I do so it connects, only to disconnect a few minutes later.I don't even know if this is a linux problem. I am the only one of my flat mates to use ubuntu though. And apparently only I have this problem. ???

I have had that problem with Ubuntu live as well. One of the many reasons I don't use Ubuntu. Sorry I can't be more help, I never was able to find/fix the problem on my machine. Just letting you know you're not alone.

wireless lan

Thanks for your reply.
I may have solved the problem: System settings, network, wireless, security: and then I just saved the key to the settings...
