Bug Description

after installing 9.04 and activating the broadcom b43 drivers, i can only stay connected to my wireless AP (linksys wrt600n) for 2-3 minutes at a time before being disconnected. i'm using wpa2 personal with aes encryption.

this seems to be a well documented problem with 9.04 (per the ubuntu forums), but there are no fixes for it.

i'm not sure what information you need, but here is what is requested below:

$ lsb_release -r

Thanks for reporting this issue. This may seem highly ridiculous, but what video driver do you have? Looking through reports, bug 331952 concerns the B43 driver doing as you described, with Openchrome video drivers. Perhaps this is a duplicate, or there is another video driver causing issues.

Thanks again.
