[fedora-virt] wireless network connectivity



 
I need some feedback as to what could be the source of my wireless connectivity for FE-12.  Previously, there were some serious problems with the wireless network software as well as the user interface using FE-12.  In general, these issues have been corrected. 
 
The problem I now see is dropped connections.  This could be due to failure to re-authenticate or something in the driver.  I mostly see this problem when connecting to a Linksys WRT160N.  However, once the problem is observed the FE-12 will not reconnect to any wireless router unless I logoff and then log back on.  Or, simply reboot the computer.
 
It should be noted that the WRT160N has been plagued by software problems.  In fact, you can buy an entire new OS for these and many problems go away.  I using v3 the latest from Linksys for this device.  For the most part when I connect to a WRT54G I do not see these problems. 
 
Scenario:
After bootup the computer will connect to the WRT160N and communicate as expected.  The longer I stayed connected the slower the response gets.  Eventually, when executing an "arp -a" command the system will return the MAC address with a <incomplete> instead of the IP address for the router.  The computer's IP address 192.168.1.100 and the router is 10.10.10.1.  At this point attempting to connect to a different router (WRT54G) does not work either.  Only a logout or reboot corrects the problem. 
 
I am using WPA & WPA2 Personal authentication whereas the WRT54G uses WEP.  I am hesitant to file a bug report due to the possibility the root problem is not in FE-12.  However, the fact that the FE-12 network drive does not recover indicates something is not quite right.
 
Thanks
