    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu and the asus zenbook (UX31)

    Yes the fix is included in kernel 3.11 (and will therefore be in Saucy ! :))

    You can backport it to your current 3.8 kernel but will have to backport again every time there is a kernel update.

    - switching to a channel with a greater number...

    Do you have a Zenbook (UX31E) or a Zenbook Prime (UX31A) ?

    As far as I know, it is a Zenbook Prime tip, and it does not help on a standard Zenbook.

    There has been some activity lately on the kernel bug I declared for our wifi problems.
    https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49201

    It has something to do with ANI, it seems.

    So we are sure wifi problems are caused by a kernel issue ?
    Network Manager has nothing to do with it (as discussed in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+bug/971809), has it ?

    Using WICD seems to work, but I think I'll try Network Manager with BSSID.
    Thanks a lot ! :)

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubunutu and the asus zenbook (UX31)

    I bought an UX31 this week-end and tried the 12.04 beta 2 on it.
    My wifi connection keeps switching on & off, whereas it works juste fine in Windows 7.
    Does anybody knows why ?
