The wireless card is operating in a medium full of unpredictable vectors. You are using a wireless card. The frequencys that it is designed for are full of other radio users and emitters, such as microwave ovens wireless phones and of course other wireless users.
You're using a wireless connection. Using it will advertise to others that you have a valid network connection. If they have a closer or more solid radio connection, you will have to contest your wireless connection.
Change your channel allocation to one less used and monitor your traffic. Change the locations of your access point and your workstation so you have best reception.

Subj: [SLE] FW: WiFi looses connection
Date: Wed Sep 28, 2005 6:50 am
I have installed SuSE 9.3 on my laptop about a month ago. Everything I have
been using was working without problems, but lately my wireless card looses
connection to the network.
ifconfig shows that the device is up and that the DHCP has assigned an IP
address, but I cannot access the network.
When bringing the interface down, up and setting the default route again:
# ifdown eth1
# ifup eth0
# route add default gw 192.168.100.1
When performing this ritual the wireless network is working again. If I then
stop using the network for a while, it looses connectivity again and I have
to repeat the above process. When I reboot the connection to the wireless
network is established but as soon as I stop using it for a while, it looses
Might it be that I missed something during configuration?
