Trying to stabilize weak wireless connection

Preface

As far as I can tell, the following didn’t improve anything for me. In fact, I can’t tell whether my problem was related to the quoted bug in any way at all. I would think it more likely that it was just a signal that was too weak, period.

Original blog post

Network-manager (nm-applet 0.6.5) seems to drop my wireless connection when it is weak. It then sometimes doesn’t reassociate correctly. The latter may have to do with the wireless connection being weak in the first place. I don’t actually know whether it is network-manager that does this, but it sounded related to this bug, so I tried one of the latest recommendations there:

sudo jed /etc/modprobe.d/aliases

then change

alias net-pf-10 ipv6

to

alias net-pf-10 off ipv6

Very very superficial attempt at a fix for a problem that may well really have to do just with the wireless connection itself; posting here will just enable me to remember what I did.
