Comment 380 for bug 621265

Sidebar: This issue is one I only had with Alice routers (1121 -- German description: http://www.alice-wiki.de/Alice_Modem_1121_WLAN ) at my friend's places. No issues whatsoever with Linksys WRT54GL routers at my home or work.

Anyhow, Simon's fix ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/621265/comments/370 ) also helped in my case as well, so kudos for that.

Yet it seems now that my speed randomly alternates between 300kb/s and 1,400kb/s (max speed possible) but I rather have it this way than for it to shortly burst at top speed only so it drops down to around 120kb/s.

Here's my system data:
