Comment 191 for bug 246141


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

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...
