I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed. Everything works fine. Especially, I am happy that most of the time my computer has wlan connection 10 sec after waking up from sleep. But as I said most of the time. Does anybody have an idea why the behavior is not consistent? My wireless card is a broadcomcard

So it's 10 seconds most of the time. How long does it take in the worse cases?

I think Ubuntu tries to establish a wireless connection every N second. Say it's every 20 seconds, then it can actually begin connecting anywhere from 0 to 20 seconds depending on when the system went to sleep and when it work up. That would be my initial guess.

It is either 10 sec or 35 sec nothing in between. If you are right where can I change the frequency of trzing to connect to a wireless. Thanks in advance. –  Dago May 10 '11 at 18:03
