I just got my Raspberry Pi B+ together with a WiFi dongle from ThePiHut and am now trying to connect it to my WiFi.
It works, at least sometimes.
After booting the Pi, I do not get an automatic connection, but first have to execute
ifup --force wlan0. Before I do this, the adapter does not even show up in the WPA_GUI.
But this only solves the porblem temporarily. After a short period of time (5-15 Minutes), the connection will drop and the WiFi_GUI says
could not get status from wpa_supplicant
which I can resolve by doing into the command line again and executing
ifup --force wlan0 once more, before dropping again and so on.
Is there a solution to this? Is it just a screwed up configuration file or something that easy?
