[Bug 277634] Re: Intel Pro/Wireless 4965 AG stops transferring data within a few minutes

I switched my D-Link DIR-655 wireless router from WPA2 authentication to
WEP authentication. I believe this also disabled wireless N protocol
since I don't think N supports WEP (how can I check in Ubuntu what
wireless protocol I am using, n, g, or b?). Since I made the switch, I
have had no wireless dropouts for 2 days. Before I made the switch, I
would have 2 to 5 wireless dropouts per day.

I think this intermittent network drop out issue may be related either
to WPA authentication (WPA supplicant bug?), or N-type wireless
networking (driver issue?). Also, when I search the web for similar
issues, most of the reports I see are for Ubuntu. I am wondering whether
the wireless dropouts are specific to the way Ubuntu is using the
driver, wpa supplicant, or network manager?
