    Broadcom Wireless card issue?!?

    Hi guys,

    I seem to be have issues periodically connecting to wireless networks with WPA. It'll work one minute, and then I switch my macbook back on after a period and it refuses to connect again. It's happened on and off on three different networks now.

    An example of /var/log/syslog:
    Code:

    Can anyone recommend a possible fix, or maybe its a driver issue??
