Wireless keeps disconnecting


Hi all, i've been googling for an hour and cant find a solution to my problem.

My wireless card keeps disconnecting(timing out) on a router that isnt mine, im just connected to it for the time being. The message i get is this...

Code:
Jul 16 15:30:23 computer dhcdbd: message_handler: message handler not found under /com/redhat/dhcp/eth1 for sub-path eth1.dbus.get.interface_mtu
This happens when my laptop is idle for 5 or 10 mins. The only solution i found was to delete the profile on NetworkManager with the WPA-TKIP key. Which i did but it keeps doing this. Any suggestions? Thanx in advance!

I am trying to figure out exactly what the problem is and why deleting the profile was a "solution."

I am wondering if the disconnections are deliberately caused by the router. Is the problem that your computer doesn't automatically reconnect? Wouldn't the profile with key be needed for a reconnection? Maybe you can clarify a little

I think thats the problem, Its a lame Linksys WRT110. I've googled this specific routers firmware and turns out the version is pretty faulty. Either that or the internal antenna inside is just too weak to handle multiple connections. But the fact of the matter is it isnt my laptop.
