    It's still the wireless problem. It worked all day Sunday, but after I shut the laptop down and turned it back on this morning it was back giving me de-auth reason 3 again. So I loaded 12.1 RC1 from the live cd and it connected immediately, so it doesn't appear to be my AP's fault, and all my other wireless gadgets still connect ok.

    Oddest part is it still works perfectly well in my office, but it wont connect to the coffee shop next door, nor any other AP. I have everything set to be controlled by the network manager.

    I tried using another AP with open/wep/wpa/wpa2 encryptions and it would not connect to any of them. Just ask for the password, then auth/deauth cycle until I told it to disconnect.

    Can we just stick with one release at a time?

    Can we address 11.4 (Is that what you are using)?
    And did you switch to 'wl' or not?

    I was going by what Larry had suggested, and my comment about the Live CD was indication that the AP was in fact working correctly. Also I haven't switched to wl yet. I'll give that a shot, but I was hoping to continue using the b43 driver if possible.

    I'm still not certain if we are working with 11.4?

    Another option in 11.4 would be to switch to kernel 3.1
    And keep b43

    For the record, that is not a driver number - that is a firmware version.

    Yes we are dealing with 11.4 and switching to wl didn't work out as planned. I'm not sure if I missed a step, but I have to load the module on every boot just to get my device to be acknowledged as eth1. However my wireless settings are greyed out, and it says disconnected permanently.

    I do have he correct kernel installed.

    Larry, you're right it's my firmware version. I misspoke.

    Then the next step is try the upgraded kernel and try b43 from there

    Kernel Updated, reapplied b43, and still the same error.....sigh.

    I know I'm driving you guys crazy with this, but thank you so much for continuing to work with me on this!

    So did you say it was trouble free at the office?
    And not so good elsewhere?

    What are the differences with the access points?

    Office has an old Belkin Wireless G with WPA2 Personal, Home has Asus WL-Premium V2 running DDwrt- v24SP1 with WPA2 Personal, Starbucks has a Linksys WRT54Gv4 I believe and is unencrypted. Most of my clients run either WPA or WPA2 and I used an old WRT54G V5 to test if it would connect to anything from open to WPA2 personal and no go.
