6 years old problem...

http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1333994.html https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/132042

It's been reported multiple times and the ubuntu developers couldn't care less.

Having the exact same problem since forever and I doubt I'll live to see the day it gets fixed.

Your wireless whatever doesn't matter, it happens on everything (realtek, intel, atheros etc)

Only "workaround" I could find so far was to remove and reload the modules. It's beyond pathetic.
