[Bug 278800] Re: ath5k giving frequent, intermittent wireless dropouts on EeePC 900

I've tried the current Jaunty, and the problem is not resolved.  It's
exactly the same as before.

As far as Sitsofe's report, for all we know he may not have seen the
problem on Intrepid either.  It's not really good evidence that anything
has been resolved.

I believe the problem is related to the type of network I'm on, which
has multiple access points on the same SSID (repeaters).  The driver
seems to get confused by the process of switching from one of the access
points to another based on which one has the best signal.  The madwifi
and ndiswrapper drivers can handle this (and will switch properly from
one access point to another), but the ath5k driver somehow gets bogged
down and confused and leaves the network in a disconnected state for
minutes at a time.


** Changed in: linux (Ubuntu)
       Status: Incomplete => Confirmed
