On my Ubunt 11.04 machine, I installed
linux-backports-modules-cw-3.0.0-natty-generic

which gave me the new wireless modules without having to update to the latest Linux 3.0 kernel.

I also had to setup the "disable_hw_scan=0" as described in #370.
creaate this file,

/etc/modprobe.d/iwl3945.conf

and put this into it.
options iwl3945 disable_hw_scan=0

So far no more speed slowdowns.

Here are my system details,
lspci -vnn |grep -A3 Wireless
