Does anyone know what the timescale is on the resolution of the wireless problems in Maverick? I am reaching breaking point with the wireless connection of my Samsung N150, just intermittent connection, mostly ends up asking for the pass-phrase again and again.

For the first time ever I am thinking of putting another distro on to the machine to get it to work. Anyone know of a distro that does not have Mavericks wireless problems?

I have exactly the same problem as Peter09 - it can take five or six reboots before the wireless will actually connect.
My wireless card is RTL8192E, though, not the one mentioned in the above thread.

Edited to add: I found this workaround. It doesn't help with the dropouts though...
So far so good. It's still incredibly frustrating though.
