Alrighty - this is a desktop computer, on the floor directly over the

just disconnected again. Now it's back and at 44%.

Netgear WG311T- Atheros XR or Super G, the box lists both.
Using madwifi drivers.
Here are two syslogs from two different days. I would have posted all
of today's syslog, but with so many reconnects disconnects it is now
over 9 MB in size -- Pastebin thinks I'm spamming. So I'm only going to
post part of it.
My passkey is 24 characters long, perhaps that is a problem.
The passkey length shouldn't be a problem. AFAIK, it always gets turned into a hex key of length 64.
Check the encryption key listed in iwconfig.
Wit a signal strength of 44, it wouldn't take much interference to knock you off-line. It could come
from a portable phone (not cell), a baby monitor, a microwave, or any number of sources. Google
"wifi 2.4 interference" to see some ideas on what can interfere and how to avoid it. You might also
try using a different channel from the 1,6,11 set.
