http://ubuntuforums.org – I know there have been several posts on wifi problems, but just wanted to say that my workaround for my ASUS X401A is to change the security mode on the router. I've had similar problems (years ago) when wifi dongles would work with WEP but apparently not with WPA. Now I'm certainly not suggesting you run unprotected or run with WEP (which is not very secure) but its a useful area to explore. It seems with my ASUS I get a stable connection with the wifi router set to WPA only, but not with WPA2 or with WPA+WPA2. I notice another thread indicates changing the b,g,n mode fixes their p (Hardware)
