I just updated my (K)Ubuntu 12.04 certified Asus laptop to Kubuntu 13.10. Now wifi drops at least every 10 minutes, and sometimes several times per minute. It's a wireless-n network with WPA2-PSK. It never dropped before the update.
What's more, network manager somehow doesn't remember the wifi password, so I'm forced to type it in every time the connection drops (KDE Daemon pop-up). When I edit the connection however, the password is right there on the wireless security tab, so evidently it's being kept somewhere. The connection is set to auto connect and usable by all users. I have tried deleting and re-adding it several times, to no avail.
Here's my wifi hardware:

THANKS for your help!
