I'm dual-booting Slackware and Jolicloud (Ubuntu-based) on my netbook, and noticed that Slackware takes much longer to reconnect to the internet after resuming from suspend to RAM.
Slackware takes about 35-40 seconds to reconnect, but Jolicloud reconnects instantly. This isn't a big enough problem for me to stop using Slackware, but I'd like to try and figure out what Jolicloud is doing to reconnect so fast. Any ideas?
My netbook connects to my router wirelessly (router is using WPA2 encryption), and the IP address is assigned via dhcp.
On Slackware I'm using Wicd, and it hangs the longest at "wpa_supplicant: validating authentication..."
On Jolicloud, I'm using NetworkManager
Note: I've tried using NetworkManager and just configuring my internet through inet1.conf on Slackware, but both took just as long as Wicd.
If you need any more info, let me know.
I guess it would probably be a good idea to tell you about my wireless card

It's using the Broadcom STA driver (wl.ko) on both Slackware and Jolicloud
