Hardware Environment: Dell Inspiron 8100 + Linksys WPC11

Attached. Thanks guys.
This appears to be an interaction with hostap/hostap_cs. Blacklisting them in
favour of the orinoco driver works.
Has this problem been resolved?
Steve, if you can confirm this problem with latest kernel please reopen.
