Default wifi gets disconnected frequently

Hi All,

I am using Squeeze and my Wifi link in my Laptop (Acer 5583 Series) gets frequent disconnections, but gets connected after a few seconds. This happens only with squeeze. While I was using Lenny, it was working fine. So I installed the non-free driver corresponding to Lenny instead of squeeze and tried. But the same issue. The Wifi Module is iwl3945 and the message I get in /var/log/messages while connection/disconnection is given below:


Jul 24 23:13:12 squeeze kernel: [ 6775.084909] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::radio
Jul 24 23:13:12 squeeze kernel: [ 6775.084949] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::assoc
Jul 24 23:13:12 squeeze kernel: [ 6775.084984] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::RX

Jul 24 23:13:12 squeeze kernel: [ 6775.085021] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::TX
Jul 24 23:13:12 squeeze kernel: [ 6775.093072] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready
Jul 24 23:13:14 squeeze kernel: [ 6776.741328] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready


Let me know if anyone has a clue on how to fix this. Thank you.

Regards,

Kurian Thayil.

Is there any kind of wireless encryption involved? WPA-supplicant
running in the background? IIRC network-manager activates wpa-supplicant
by default -even if there is no wireless interface- and i remember
having seen similar behaviour caused by wpa-supplicant and TKIP/AES
mismatch between AP and client.

Kill wpa-supplicant, if it is interfering with ifup. Kill it anyway to
find out if it does: fire up wpa_cli as root on a console and enter
"terminate" on the CLI. "help" might also be useful for further debugging.

If the link stays up then, check if there's DNS (DNS is likely to fail
if the default ifup script gets interrupted).
Otherwise try to configure the interface by hand. I do not know which
tools are used by your specific HW. Might be iwconfig and iwpriv/iwlist
or wlanconfig. Anyway "iwconfig" should show you if wpa_supplicant tried
to set some options related to encryption/authorization which might
cause the interface to connect, wait for authorization, fail and
disconnect to try again.
