I've searched and could not find a post on this particular topic; if there is one, please point me to it.
I'm using 3.4, 64 bit on my Acer Aspire 5100. I am using an external (pcmcia) atheros card for WiFi, as the internal one is not supported (yet) by madwifi. I am using the stock network manager in Sabayon, and use Knetworkmanager to scan/connect. My WPA password is saved so I don't have to re-enter it.
I can connect fine with wifi, but only as long as it's open. When I am at home (I'm a truck driver) I have trouble connecting to my WPA enabled wifi.
My router is a Linksys, running HyperWRT+Thibor firmware. In Windows, there is no problem.
In Ubuntu, there is no problem.
In Sabayon, I have to connect 3 or 4 times. The first time I click on the Knetworkmanager icon in the bar, and go to my network, nothing happens.
the 2nd time, it'll go to 28% and die.
the third time, it'll connect, then immediately drop.
the 4th time, it'll connect and stay connected.
Any ideas at all would be helpful.
