BCM4328 keeps losing connection
I've posted this issue on the Arch-Linux forums and didn't get any reply:
Arch Linux Forums / Broadcom BCM4328 connection problem
Like the topic title says, I'm having issues with the BCM4328 wireless card on my MacBook and Arch Linux. What I've basically done is simply following the Wiki for this card on the Arch Linux website and everything went more or less OK. I've had an issue with getting netcfg to connect properly but in the end I resolved that too.
There's just this one thing nobody seems to have a clue about and its a very strange issue where my connection seems to be lost (no traffic possible after 5-10 mins of connectivity) while running "iwconfig" shows I'm still connected to my local network. In the link I've posted above you can find the netcfg config file I use for my connection and the "iwconfig" output when my connection seems to be lost. Nothing is wrong with my WPA secured network since OSX connects flawlessly, and stays connected.
Basically, this problem is driving me nuts since it happens randomly every ~5-10 minutes now. It also seems that when I connect the first time at boot (using net-auto-wireless) the connection lasts longer and everytime I connect after that it seems like it drops sooner. But this could als be coincidence.
The bottom line, I have absolutely no idea what to do anymore and obviously like this I can't use wireless and hence I'm forced to remove Arch. Which would be a real shame since I'm using it on my desktop for over a year now, so I would appreciate any help.
