Connection to wireless AP drops randomly
Though I am able to successfully connect to my wireless network, the connection to the AP randomly drops, usually within about 20 minutes.
Wireless Extensions v19
Wireless Tools v27
ndiswrapper 1.8 (using the Windows NDIS driver for the card)
wpa_supplicant 0.4.8 (using the "wext" driver interface)
Hardware (`lspci' output):
05:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
Broadcast SSID, 802.11g
WPA with Private Shared Key
This problem does not occur in Windows. I have tried multiple versions of the driver but that seems to have no effect. I am running wpa_supplicant as a daemon, but I have to restart it anyway when the signal is lost because it doesn't seem to try to re-aquire. I've created a shell script to run the necessary commands and start over, but I have to do that every time the connection is lost, and it's a major nuisance.
