Wifi Dropping Every Minute After Update Pack 5 [Solved]

Postby dritzominous on Thu Sep 27, 2012 7:54 pm

Every minute or so my wifi connection drops, and I get a popup box titles "Wireless Network Authentication Required" that prompts me for my wireless network password.

Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Edit: Somehow, when I right-clicked the nm-applet in the tray, selected "Edit Connections", selected the "Wireless Security" tab, changed the selected index of the Authentication drop-down box from "Open System" to "Shared Key", restarted nm-applet, changed the selected index back to "Open System" (since it didn't work with the "Shared Key" option selected) and re-entered my wifi password in the Wireless Security tab (because it was cleared for some reason); my wifi connection worked properly.

I'll check to see if this weird 'fix' is consistent after a reboot.

Edit2: Confirmed, this is fixed. :D
