Hi, i know that the lack of the driver rtl8187 is a known issue, i've an Alfa Usb wifi adapter Awus036h whch loses the connection each times i start a download. I've tried following the commands written on the Wiki but with no results. I fixed the problem only on Arch i686 using ndiswrapper and Windows Xp_32 bit driver for the adapter (on Arch x86_64 i get a kernel panic with the same driver of Wind_64bit).
I noticed that using Ubuntu there isn't this problem and i don't get any disconnection. Maybe due to the differences between the two kernels, but how can we get the Ubuntu's advantages of rtl8187 into Arch too?

Same issues here.. Rtl8187 is driving me mad
Did you make any progress on Arch x86_64 and ndiswrapper?
I'm currently using rtl8187 from compat-wireless-snp AUR package. Seems to work a bit better than kernel stock.
Also, i noticed, setting :
sudo iwconfig [w_iface] retry 255
greatly imporves rtl8187 behaviour..
