Although 8.04 gnome works perfect on my Asus F8P laptop sometimes it won't connect to the web. I've got a wireless set-up.

After 10 to 20 seconds or so it asks for the WPA key which I then have to enter 2 or 3 times before it connects. After which it works flawless.

Actually, 9 out of 10 times it works flawless, it's that one time that bugs me.

Anybody recognizes this?

ifconfig -a gives:

The problem is getting worse, now 1 out of 2 times when switching the laptop on I have to enter the WPA code.

Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks everybody for being so helpful.

Luckily, after a few days of trying, I fixed the problem. I made good notes so I won't have to ask anybodies help next time.
