Description Yakov Galka 2013-03-29 09:20:00 UTC
Dell Latitude E6530 with Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205, connecting to an unencrypted access point 3m away. Pinging the access point gives 20% to 100% packet loss, 8 out of 10 days I tried. The access point is an Edimax router with 802.11n support.

Loading Ubuntu LiveCD at the same conditions gives 0% packet loss, always.

Some report similar problems, see replies to http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=38685
