So one working method to decrease disconnects seemed to be to increase the timeout for link losses. Taken from the bug report,

I am willing to try this, although I think the first step would be to eliminate the possibility of a driver problem. The #madwifi guys in freenode told me to use athdebug in the madwifi-tools, which I ran, but it didn't seem to do anything much...
$ athdebug
dev.wifi0.debug: 0x00000000

Seems this is quite a common problem. I don't know if it helps at all, but there
are a couple of user submitted patches in the Ubuntu bug system aimed at sorting
it out.

The one at the bottom of this thread allows a user configure the reconnection

Here's another related bug:

Also, after using network manager to get your connection up, issuing a kill
-STOP to the NetworkManager process seems to stop the reconnections.
