Default Wireless drops and won't reconnect. - 09-25-2009, 02:15 AM

If I try to copy a large file from my Mini (running vanilla Ubuntu 9.04) to my Windows box via the wireless connection, the connection will drop and will refuse to re-connect no matter how many times I re-enter the correct password. I have to reboot the unit to get the connection back. And trying again to copy the large file will kill the wireless again.

Why is it that Windows can re-link the wireless connection without user intervention and Linux requires a reboot?

This is very frustrating!

I had to send my mini 9 back to Dell twice. First they replaced the wireless card and it still happened. Next time they replaced the MOBO and it seems to be stable
