[driverloader] auto-reconnect after signal loss?

when the connection is lost, the Windows XP driver should attempt to 
automatically re-connect.

Please send at support at linuxant.com the output of the following commands 
while you are disconnected :

iwconfig scanning
iwconfig accesspoints
ip route cat /etc/resolv.conf

In the meantime, you could try with different versions of the Windows XP 
driver and please make sure that you are using the latest firmware for 
your access point.
