My Thinkpad T60 running Ubuntu 12.04 drops the wireless connection sporadically. It happens approximately once every five to ten minutes. The wireless connection does not have an issue with any other devices. I also dual boot Windows XP on this machine and do not have issues with the connection while running XP.

I attempted to set the IPv6 setting to ignore as suggested in other posts with similar issues. The power management for the wireless card is also turned off.

If anyone could offer any diagnostic help, I'd appreciate it.
