Ive been having it since I got this thing (hp dv2415us) where it will connect for a couple of hours (WPA2 shared key, auto dhcp, etc). I turned off the GNOME network manager cuz its garbage and connect up via cli w/manual configs. This worked fine for a couple weeks but it would always disconnect after a few hours with weird errors. Something like "dns lease already exists in blah blah blah, disconnecting". So I pulled out all the stops and threw every dirty trick on the books at it and still no dice. Googling turned up ALOT of people complaining about this very thing! Mainly those using the latest Ndiswrapper (1.46). Nobody seems to have figured this out yet either.

I've seen this problem when more than one wpa_supplicant is running. When that happens, each instance of the process is fighting to get the connection. My not so elegant solution is to do a "sudo killall wpa_supplicant" and then reestablish conenction form knetworkmanager.
