I have a lenovo Y400 laptop. And I have installed ubuntu 12.04 on this laptop. When I began to install, I can connect to my wifi router in the Graphical installation mode, and the firefox was useful to surf the internet. But, when finished the installation, I cannot connect to WIFI stably. And, if someone need to connect to my wifi router,only he just need is the password.I can confirm my wifi router works very well , because I can use my mobilephone to connect to it. Why I said "stably"? When I start the Ubuntu, Wifi signals can be found, and I input the password, at this time, I can connect to my wifi router.Then, about 30s to 1min, the wifi module disconnect to the router automatically.Every time, I start the ubuntu, the fuction is normal, after 1min, this problem occurs. I am very confused that why I can connect to my wifi router in the Graphical installation mode, but can't after finishing the installation. Help me please, thanks!

It is safe to run it was written by me and some good friends it will help diagnose your wireless issue. Paste this command in a terminal wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script It will download a script and create a file named (wireless-info.txt, or wireless-info.txt.tar.gz) in your home folder paste the file here pastebin.com then paste the link back here. –  Wild Man Aug 26 '13 at 20:56
