Ubuntu – WiFi drops out a few seconds after a reboot (issues with upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10)


I have just upgraded from Ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10 and am facing a number of issues, primary among them being inability to connect to the WiFi. When the machine boots up initially, it is able to connect to WiFi but gets disconnected after a few seconds and stubbornly refuses to connect again. My dmesg output is filled with error messages of the form:-

[  544.079940] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00queue_write_tx_frame: Error - Dropping frame due to full tx queue 0
[  545.264465] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00queue_flush_queue: Warning - Queue 0 failed to flush
[  545.424537] ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00queue_flush_queue: Warning - Queue 2 failed to flush

The entire dmesg output can be found here

I'm using an Ralink Corp RT 3290 Wireless card [1814:3290]. The wireless issue is the primary issue since once I have internet access I can use my own computer to report issues online.

As of now I have switched to the older Linux 3.8 kernel to deal with this issue. However, even then some of my other issues persist. You can have a look here to see if they have any bearing on this question or not.
