Re: Wireless keeps disconnecting after so many updates
You never did Post any system details, so you do not have very good grounds for ranting here.
I ve had similar problems for years and am still trying to solve them, with much help from these forum and chili555 especially .
The latest development is a generalised update to network drivers called: 'backports-modules-cw'. I have found it a great improvement, but not the perfection you seem to want.
You need to install the version for your ubuntu distribution, example for 12.10:
There is a package of newer updated drivers, including Realtek, called compat-wireless. This is just the Ubuntu-customized version.
Thanks due to chili for this.
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-cw-3.6-quantal-generic
