iwl3945 disconnects, network-manager shows connected, 12.04 beta 1
I have a laptop with a PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network controller.
I installed 11.04 and then 11.10.
After installing 11.10, I started having problems with the network connection dropping, I would have to disable networking and reenable networking to get it to work again.
Note, it was a little flaky on 11.04 too but worked.
Network Manager would always show connected, even though I could not ping the router.
I tried everything I found in the different forums, but it never really fixed the problems.
I decided to wait for 12.04 and was pleased when I tried alpha 2.
The network connection stayed working, it would drop and reconnect every so often, and network manager would show the drop and reconnect, but it wasn't too intrusive.
I've just updated to beta 1 and now its back to dropping the connection with network manager still showing the connection is there.
I can get it to connect again, but it will only work for a few minutes.
I've never posted a bug on launchpad but I can pull lshw, lspci, iwconfig, rfkill info.
I'll just have to hardwire the network connection to get it posted.
Can you help with this problem?
