Comment 191 for bug 246141

Hi,

I'm using openSuse 11.2 and my drop out problems stops when I run the
following script:

>
> while [ 1 ]; do
    VALUE=`iwconfig wlan0 | grep -o "Bit Rate=54 Mb/s" | wc -l`
    if [ "$VALUE" -ne "1" ]; then
        echo "iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M"
        iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M
        sleep 10
    fi
done

>

It checks the result of the command iwconfig wlan0 and see if the bit rate
is low, if so sets to 54M. After 10 seconds it checks again.

I hope it could help someone...
