Five days ago, I just updated my linux ubuntu server (12.10) to the latest packages. The last time before was 125 days ago.
Got a problem with the following symptom:  after around two days, wifi seems not working, in fact I noticed that pinging from the server (where the wifi card runs) a client (for example my laptop) get high pinging times, about 5000 ms and more.
The bad solution I used up to now is : 
  killing hostapd and restart it. It works. However I am not satisfied with that :-( 
any help ? or what I should trace to help ?

Happy Christmas &  Kind regards - Phil

PS1: I used hostapd since 2003 :-)
