    Default madwifi & networkmanager

    hi,
    i'm on opensuse 11.0 (system updated), using KDE4 (obs kde4:factory build). When using networkmanager to manage my connections in knetworkmanager i see no available wifi networks. Using console ifup, iwlist, ... i can connect to any network (wep, wpa works) but after some time (5-15 min) my connections is dropped (i think it's due txpower value - automaticaly is falling to 8dbm).

    some info:
    lspci -v
