Modifying 353 (xo-1) to apply the fix

I've constantly experienced the same issues. The XO-1 can't sometimes
connect to my AP and the signal is always very weak compared to all other
wireless devices I have - the XO 1.5 has a much stronger signal, for
It has always been this way and I have it almost for two years now,
independent if I have Gentoo or XO OS installed, for all versions.

Best regards,
