This is still broken in 2.6.17. I get random lockups in Edgy. I've got an atheros card, so lspci -n gives 168c:0013. When I boot I get an error:

Resource Conflict - PCI Network Controller in slot 01
   Bus:02, Device:02, Function:00

Before it hangs /var/log/messages contains this error:

Mar 25 17:51:37 localhost kernel: [17184040.904000] wifi0: hardware error; reseting
Mar 25 17:51:38 localhost kernel: [17184041.564000] wifi0: ath_chan_set: unable to reset channel 7 (2442Mhz) flags 0xc0 'Hardware didn't respond as expected' (HAL status 3)

The kernel version is 2.6.17-11-386 (version #2).

My laptop is almost unusable. It works for a while then randomly hangs. Perhaps you can fix this before we get Feisty? This has been dragging on for so long without a fix.
