  USB Wifi drops out every 2 minutes, needs disconnecting / reconnecting
  to work for a further 2 minutes

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Wifi says it's connected at all times but the internet drops out and
  nothing connects on WLAN or the internet.

  Every 2 minutes, I disconnect and reconnect to make it work again but
  it soon drops out again.

  Recently upgraded from Ubuntu 11 where everything worked with 3rd
  party drivers that don't work with current version.

  ALl help gratefully received.
