wireless card often deconnecting.

I have had a similar problem (non-US citizen) and after having setup
crda, it works now like a charm (of course depending on signal quality).

Quote from http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wireless_Setup:

If you want to enable more channels on Intel Wifi 5100 (and quite
possible other cards too) you can do that with the crda package. After
install, edit /etc/conf.d/wireless-regdom and uncomment the line where
your country code is found. Add wireless-regdom to your DAEMONS in
rc.conf and restart (which is the easiest thing to do). You should now,
when writing sudo iwlist wlan0 channel, have access to more channels
(depending on your location).
