You can try disabling power saving mode using something like "iwconfig
wlan0 power off" (change wlan0 to whatever is correct interface name
in your case). If it helps, it may be a known issue of USB device
going into power saving mode and missing beacons (see for example
recent thread "Add autowake support for USB hardware" from Ivo van
Doorn). I'm hitting that issue with an rt2780 based USB card.
