Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-firmware

This were some of the entries that I found in my /etc/var/syslog  file
Dec  7 00:47:09 joey-laptop kernel: [ 4373.980063] wlan0: no probe response from AP 00:25:84:03:bf:f0 - disassociating
Dec  7 00:47:09 joey-laptop NetworkManager: <info>  (wlan0): supplicant connection state:  completed -> disconnected

This is what I found when running a lshw command:
*-network

Please note also I am about 10 feet away from the router when this
happens.  Any input on this matter will be greatly appreciated.  Thank
you.

Jole - have you tried installing linux-backports-modules-generic? It
contains the 2.6.32 kernel version of the wireless stack.

Hi Tim,

I have found some information on the backports, however my time schedule
does not permit me from working on the project right now, I will get back to
the project on Friday when I have some time.  Thank you for the lead, and I
will let you know from there.  Thanks again.

I am on a Samsung NC130 anynet netbook which also uses the Atheros
AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express). I have similar problems
with WiFi dropping out randomly. I am occasionally able to reconnect,
but usually only a reboot fixes the issue.

According to the Ubuntu hardware Wiki, the Asus EeePC 1005HA has the same network hardware (Atheros 9285) and suffers from the same problem. The Wiki says installing a backport would help: "Wireless (Atheros AR9285) works out of the box, but connection is flaky. To fix, open a terminal and type 'sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-karmic'"
I installed the backport half a week ago and my connection has been much better since then. Stability improved and I have a much better reception.

That fixed it, thanks.

Looks like I was a little too fast. The problem still persists, although
it's not as bad as before. The connection still drops out frequently,
but comes back after around 30-60 seconds. I'm not sure what is causing
this, but it's definitively one of the most annoying problems I've had
with Ubuntu so far and, as sad as it is, but I might ditch it for this
reason. A computer without a stable Internet connection is only half as
interesting.

Found a solution prescribed by a friend.  Installed "wicd" through the
synaptic package manager in place of the default network manager.  Can't
explain why, but my network performance is a lot better.
