Comment 179 for bug 414560

With 2.6.32.3 the situation is better but with problems.
After some hours (8? 10?) I come back to the PC and the connection was lost.
The ping command that pings every 3 seconds my router was giving:

ping: sendmsg: No buffer space available
ping: sendmsg: No buffer space available
ping: sendmsg: No buffer space available

Restarting network-manager and umounting/mounting the module doesn't
fix the connection.
