Problem description:
Occasionally the wlan connection on n800 ceases to function. So far this has
only happened when the device is not in use i.e. I pick it up to start
browsing but it is not working.

state as "Connected" and in "IP address" screen everything looks ok. In
Connection Manager the "Sent" counter increases if I initiate communication
from n800 but the "Received" is unchanged no matter what I try.

On the command line (Xterm):
 - routing table is ok
 - ifconfig is ok

when the connection is working, we are using local proxy-dns?)
