It's my first post here to this mailing-list. First I wanna thanks for
the possibility to use the madwifi driver. They work well for me. (and
sorry for my bad english...*g*).
I've only one problem with using the driver: If I use a program which
needs much connections i.e. Azureus, Amule i loose my connection and
have a Link Quality 0/94. This happens sometimes after some minutes,
sometimes after some hours using those programs. I can get connection
back with a simple /etc/init.d/net restart. If I use "normal" programs
or games I have no problem with the drivers. Under Win XP I have no
problems with my pci card. I uses Kernel 2.6.4 (i tried different
kernels too) and the newest madwifi from cvs. Maybe anyone have a idea
too solve this problem, because it's a pitty i cant use my Linux because
of this network problems :o(
Here a dmesg | grep ath:
ath_hal: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.

I hope anyone has an idea, i dont wanna buy a new pci card for 50€...
