disconnect and reconnect wireless after ubuntu 11 update.
i run a toshiba l755. i run windows 7 until i decided to try ubuntu inside it bcos im new to linux and want to learn first. my wireless was working well on both windows and ubuntu untill i updated my ubuntu. that was the beginning of my woes.
now i have to disconnect and reconnect my wireless at every startup or even when it wakes from sleep.
i uninstalled ubuntu and installed again but the problem is stilll there.

my network adapter is a realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC

Hi and welcome to LQ!
Details, details, details. that's what we need to help you.
1. What exact version of ubuntu were you using when your wifi was working well? (there is no version 11 of ubuntu).
2. What driver were you using for the wifi before the update?
3. What version of Ubuntu did you update to?
Your problem is discussed in much detail on the ubuntu forum. You might want to learn to search for these things yourself.
I have a look a this thread: It contains some detailed instructions.
Have fun. :)

maybe you should use tinny script that restarts nm-applet:

killall nm-applet
sleep 1
