Bug Description

I have installes 9.04 32bit on my notebook ( AMD Turion 64 X2@1,6 GHz, 2GB RAM, ATI X1100 onboard, realtek hd audio, ralink 2561 wireless).

All funktions were fine until I tried to connect to my personal wlan AP. Signal strengh is about 70% (says 8.04 Hardy), but not so in jaunty, here it is about 50% and I can't connect to it ?!?!
50% and i can't connect to it, nm tries to connect but it asks me the pw for wlan again and again.

But I can actually connect to it, if I had about 90% signal strengh.

Very buggy!

I can confirm this on amd64.

The connection qualitiy is worse in comparison to hardy.
The connection even drops from time to time and network-manager is unable to reconnect automatically.

I can confirm this on an EEE PC 901 with Ralink RT2860.
Reception is 100% Windows XP (router in the same room), but only 60-70% in Jaunty. Frequently completely drops the connection in places where I have a good signal in Windows XP.

Sorry for the late reply, I had to install the rt61pci card again.

It seems the problems are gone. I get good and stable speed.
