Settting "iwconfig wlan0 power off" made a big difference in my experience. I 
still get disassociation every now and then, but it was an obvious improvement 
from before and the wireless was actually usable, which was not the case 
before.
Haven't had a chance to try F11 at the place where I am having this problem 
with the wireless.
