I am also affected by this bug on Ubuntu 8.04 x86 (32-bit). My external (USB) rtl8187-based wireless frequently drops the connection (WPA) and Network Manager fails to indicate this (but the Sent/Recieved count doesn't increase) or goes to connected, but 0% connection, or goes to 100% connection but little orange triangle warning icon.
The way to fix it involves randomly (no pattern to what will work) doing the following: - Removing the USB stick and reconnecting - Unloading and reloading the rtl8187 kernel module - Unticking and ticking the connection in Network Manager forcing a reconfiguration - Restarting the computer My connection works perfectly in a Vista installation on the same machine. -- rtl8187 drops connection https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/182473 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
