Let us know how you make out so we can update the eee info page.
Sorry if I'm cutting in here a bit.. :-) I haven't tried this particular
kernel, but I have built a -current (20080809:ish) with the patches from
the eee page. Were those the same as yours?
My eeepc900's ath0 interface fails to work properly with the
atheee.patch from the homepage; I get frequent messages about (from memory
now) "ath0: device timeout (txq 1, txintrperiod n)" where n is typically
1..5, and anywhere from 33-85% packet loss and seemingly very bad signal
reception. In the same location(s) in my house, I get zero packet loss
with my old DELL Latitude C600's pcmcia wi0 and 4.0_BETA2. The AP is some
old 802.11b DLink AirPlus 900AP+ using WEP "encryption".
 I am not sure how to interpret the signal to noise ratios in
wiconfig ath0 -D, the man page doesn't really say).
