This command toggle off power management. From my experience, this is not a FR bug, but an AP bug : some AP do not work good with power managed client. On my lab, at the university and in my LUG, the wifi work without swiching off the power management. But at home, I need to toggling off power management. With power management, it is difficult to have an IP by DHCP, and pinging the router make between 70-80% of lost packets. My Nintendo DS do not work with this router too. I experiment wifi problem when loosing link, that can only be fixed by a reboot. It is not great when roaming...
