    Wireless disconnects when laptop changes power source.

    My laptop disconnects and reconnects to my wifi whenever I unplug it from the wall or plug it back in. I think this is from the ubuntu power manager but I cannot for the life of me find out how to disable it. Can someone tell me either how to make sure it stays connected when I unplug it or plug it back in, or just disable all power management, or whatever is causing it?

    Disable power management only for the wireless card:

    And what if power management is already off, but it still disconnects?

    Well, is it off? For the *wireless card*, that is.

    It says that power management is off as far as I can tell.

    What's the complete output of:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Use copy/paste to transfer it to your answer.
