I upgraded my Ubuntu 10.10 for Ubuntu 12.04. I have a Emachines E625

With Ubuntu 12.04 my wireless always disconnects every 10 sec. It didn't do that with 10.10.

Here is my config:

Linux sylvain-eMachines-E625 3.2.0-30-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Aug 24 16:54:40 UTC 2012 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

I will really enjoy an answer to solve this problem. Thank you in advance!
