Comment 19 for bug 291760


I have precisely the same problem as Greg Michalec with latest intrepid and backports enabled. I run an IBM T42 on an unencrypted network. I also had no problems in Hardy and I don't think it's a driver issue, although the driver is certainly also shaky. (Issuing a sudo iwconfig ath0 rate 11M as suggested in took care of the driver shakyness.)
