Default Wireless dies on ubuntu/mac airport extreme

Hi guys, not sure if this got sent because it was reported as too long. I clipped it, so hopefully it gets through this time.

Dear Ubuntu gurus, I'm having a problem with my wireless at home that I've never had before.


I know the problem is somehow related to Ubuntu's (I'm running Natty 11.04) interaction with my router (mac airport extreme) because:

- My laptop is dual boot with windows- On windows wireless works fine at home- On Ubuntu wireless works fine everywhere except home (coffee shops etc)
When I boot into Ubuntu wireless will work fine for a few minutes and then become increasingly flaky. I am not 100% sure, but I suspect the flakiness begins or is exacerbated when I ssh into a remote machine (just a theory, I could be wrong).




A friend who's a linux sysadmin suggested this when he saw the output of my dmesg (which I paste below):
"Definitely see some kernel debug stuff going on. It's probably a bug with the N protocol. Try disabling N as indicated here:*http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Intel_Centrino_Wireless-N_1000






I think I had something like that happen once upon a time. This will scale you back to G speeds (54Mbps), but probably will be stable."







Any ideas or help on how to solve this? Diagnostics below

What was the result of your attempt to disable the N protocol according
to that suggestion? If it was still the same problem, you probably hit
another bug.

I'm not sure if this is related to your wireless. To me it looks more
like it is related to your eth0. You could report a bug againts the
kernel, see <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/KernelTeamBugPolicies>.
