While I agree, more or less, with both statements (although for me NM
restore any connections) this is something new for me - For a long while
everything worked just fine, no drop offs. Then, suddenly (of the order of
since Christmas) I have started experiencing these. Nothing has changed on
the wireless router side, so I am guessing something has on my system, since
I update regularly. Also I am sitting real close to the router so wireless
strength should not be a problem.
Since you mention Christmas, could one of your neighbours have bought
themselves some wireless gear, and you're getting some interaction
between yours and their systems?
If you turn off all off your wireless gear but the one receiver on the
PC you're testing, does it notice any other networks?
