Bug Description

Hi!

I've recently upgraded my laptop Asus X80L from Ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04.
All is fine except wifi. It's now crazy.
1. It finds network very-very long. Before upgrade it took about several seconds, now it's about 1 minute. Also it can ask for stored password again and again.
2. It regularly losts network. If I ping the nearest gate, results are very strange: about 70 packets go ok, the next 30 are lost, and so on.

Hi, Fabio!

I can say that next Ubuntu (9.10) worked better, there was not enormose
packet loss (70/30 as written before). But several times a day it lost the
network and only reboot could help.

Unfortunately now I cannot check because I'm using another laptop.

Thank you.

Hello, Fabio!
