Long and short retries seem to help greatly, I'll see how stable it is and report back. Can you tell me what the number 21 means? Is it just the number of retries?

How would this be related? I can't send any 802.11 frames, at a lower level than IP addressing.

Windows: Virtually endlessly (as in, hours of un-interrupted communication) vs a few seconds on Ubuntu. Reconnect gives a few more seconds. I'll try the clean disconnect later tomorrow as it is fairly late in my timezone

I've tried values as low as 64 (powers of 2), to no avail.

No, unfortunately the issue remains (the disconnect happens equally quickly). Can't let the bounty go to waste, though, so I'll award it if no other answers come in that work

Thanks, I'll try as much of it as I can (It is illegal to transmit above 20dBi in the US without licenses that I do not have)

Can you explain what fixes, if any, exist in the newest version over rtl8187 in trusty repos? Edit: That package doesn't build for me.

To whomever voted to close this as a bug report, what justification do you have for same? I'm not sure if the issue is on my side, and if it is not, I'd appreciate being told that directly.
