    Default Wireless Network Dropping After Upgrade to R1

    I just upgraded to Backtrack 5 R1 and noticed it drops my wireless network connection. All my wireless machines in the house drop about a minute after I boot into backtrack with just my one machine. I checked my firmware on my router and I have the latest. I have a WRT120N. When I choose Backtrack 5 I am fine. Anyone else have this issue and have a fix?

    I am having a similar issue with an Asus eee PC after doing a dist-upgrade. ifconfig -a shows only l0 and eth0 and iwconfig shows no wireless extensions.

    Likewise Soulsheath, i had BT5 running fairly well on my EEE PC using the Broadcom Linux_STA driver (brcm80211) for the BCM4313 card. Thought BT5r1 would have the driver included and ready to go but I have no wireless interface at all. Going to d/l the driver again from Broadcom and see if i can get it up and running again. I'll let you know if I see success..
