WIFI Problems

We have had problems with the wifi for some time currently. This page is for logging who has what issues to see if there is anything in common. Please include OS, OS Version, wifi hardware chipset (as much info as you can give), and wifi driver version (whatever info you can give).

There seems to be 2 issues:

Intermittant disconnections

Wifi works most of the time but every few hours or so you get disconnected and immediatly reconnected. Before being disconnected boole can't do ipv6 neighbour discover for your address (and can't ping you), ipv4 works fine!

People having this issue:

Jasper:

OS: Debian 7, 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.51-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux (stock debian kernel)
Wifi chipset: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
ath5k phy0: Atheros AR2425 chip found (MAC: 0xe2, PHY: 0x70)

Wifi dosn't work at all, or very little

Seems to only effect people with broadcom chipsets?
