Public bug reported:

The wireless connection is lost if the connection is under heavy load
(streaming video and downloading with ktorrent), the network monitor
says disconnected - iwconfig wlan0 and ifconfig wlan0 show that the ip-
adress remains intact, the access point is correct but the signal
quality is -136 dBm.

I've haven't been able to revive the connection, I've always tried for
about 15 minutes getting dhclient3 to get going but when I try to ping a
server I get the ip adress for the wlan0 " network

This happened for the first time in december - I think there was an
update for ndiswrapper but I'm not 100% certain.

lspci output on wireless adapter:
01:01.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] (rev 01)

Ndiswrapper version 1.45, utils version 1.9.
