Looking at the syslog, I saw a pattern. Just prior to each supplicant
connection state change the system initiated this CRON:
Nov 24 09:20:01 augusten-T61p /USR/SBIN/CRON: (root) CMD ([ -x
/usr/sbin/update-motd ] && /usr/sbin/update-motd 2>/dev/null)
I removed the me-specific information and did a Google search -what i
found was very interesting: messages like the one on this page; people
experiencing some sort of wireless hangs while using the 4965 agn (and I
think others). I don't know anything about debugging or programming or
Ubuntu -I can operate a can opener and that's it. But there had to be a
pattern. So I snooped around and it didn't seem like the system would
die if I disabled that CRON so I did. But upon restart is was back.
So using Synaptic, I removed the 'update-motd 2' completely. Since then,
I have experienced no breaks or inrurruptions in wireless service. This
is hardly a fix, it's a crude workaround but it does appear to work.
