Hi ciiccii,

Please be sure to confirm this issue exists with the latest development release of Ubuntu. ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ . If the issue remains, please run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 565367

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.

Should I report a new bug as

does not work for me as I am not the bug-reporter.

Ok, as you can see, now(after a kernel update) i can connect to а wireless network, which is encrypted with WPA-PSK. But the trouble is still remains - the connection dies often without to being disconnected from network (no data is being transmitted after it).
Unfortunately i have the other networks i want connected to, but the issue described on this bug-report remains . Those are encrypted with WEP, WPA2-CCMP and WPA-TKIP, and i can't change the encryption on those networks.

I can attest to this bug as well, i get a terminal screen followed immediately by a logout. This is on a thinkpad t42 btw

Have you tried a mainline kernel as described at the https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/MainlineBuilds page? I installed 2.6.34 on a T42 from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.34-lucid/ and it solved the issue described in bug #427439. It may be worth a try.
