Both of mine are lucent, and both time out. Just to make certain I
also tried a wired card in the pcmcia slot, and it worked fine.
It started perhaps a few months ago. I think the problem is related
to something that mycroft pointed out once on icb -- the wi driver
processes N interrupts, then exits the processing loop.
The value is 10 in the stock source. I upped that to 100, and things
for a lot better. I'm considering removing the loop limit entirely to
see what happens, or setting it really, really high.
