    Wireless dropouts on Dell Studio 15 Broadcom 4353)

    Hi All,

    I have a new Dell Studio 1558 with Lucid 64-bit installed and have been struggling with the wireless for quite a while now. Generally when I boot the wireless will connect properly, but at some random point in the future (eg. in 30 mins) it will just disconnect and ask for the password again. It then often has trouble re-connecting, sometimes requiring a reboot.

    I am using the STA drivers, and my hardware is as follows...

    eth1: Broadcom BCM4353 802.11 Hybrid Wireless Controller 5.60.48.36

    I've tried dozens of "solutions" on various forums, but none seem to solve the problem.

    Does anyone have any idea how I can diagnose/fix this problem?

    Many thanks,

    Chris
