I'm connecting fine, but drop connections more often than I'd like to, even though network manager shows a good signal strength. I'm running realtek's 8187L chipset on a 32bit hardy box.

A few outputs that might be useful:

from iwconfig


wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"TOOLEY'S "
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: 00:17:3F:DF:E6:C7
Bit Rate=54 Mb/s Tx-Power=27 dBm

Link Quality=60/64 Signal level=52/65
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0



from ifconfig:


wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:c0:a8:d8:96:a1

Any thoughts?
