Hi,

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 on my Presario V3424TU laptop. The wireless card was not working till very recently, when an update to my Broadcom driver got installed through the Ubuntu update process. After that, I am now able to connect to my local wireless network through a WEP key.

But now the problem is that after every 20-30 mins, I get disconnected from the network. Even though I try to disable and re-enable the wireless, disable and re-enable networking, or even log out and log in, I do not get the connection. It shows the connection as having zero strength, even though on another Ubuntu 8.04 laptop, it shows full strength. Only restarting the computer restores the connection.

Any ideas what the problem may be?
