I am having an issue with connecting to my wifi router since yesterday; could see the router in the wireless networks available but the router isn't authenticating my password.

unblocking the hardware switches doesn't help as non is blocked.

Every time I reboot my system I am facing the same issue i.e I am unable to connect to the WiFi. Re-installing the driver from the "Additional Driver" does help but only for that session only.

I am not sure why is this happening; though I recently upgraded to kernel 3.2.0.30 and installed everpad through a ppa.


Edit: I have to reinstall the driver everytime I boot up my system. These are tail logs from /var/log/jockey.log:-

Rather than reinstalling your driver have you tried powering down your computer completely (shutdown) for a few seconds? I have a computer that seems to need that. –  John S Gruber Sep 18 '12 at 21:48
