> Using wpa supplicant, the connection drops when I download something, i.e. pkg_add some package remotely with PKG_PATH pointing to my nearest mirror in my country.  It seems to happens when ever there is high traffic as mentionned in the other problem report.  I do not do any ssl tunnel and I get the same trouble.

caused by buffer bloat in the driver?  That might be worth a look.  Does
latency (measured by a ping) get very high?
