View Full Version : [ubuntu] University wireless cuts out

December 3rd, 2008, 10:12 PM
Since upgrading from Hardy to Intrepid, my connection to the University of Washington's wireless network is flaky.

I'll have to try to connect several times, and then it will only stay connected for a few minutes. Then, I have to wait for it to connect again to get another few minutes of connectivity. Occasionally, after many tries, it will get a reliable connection.

This happens everywhere on campus, even when near an access point. However, it does not happen at my home! Any ideas?

Ubuntu 8.10
Thinkpad R61
from lshw: PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection
