Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: 2.6.22
Hardware Environment: x86_64
Problem Description: The device no longer connects to the AP when configured

Could you attach the output of dmesg? And the output of iwconfig? And ifconfig as well? Thanks!
I see Daniel is already engaged w/ this on netdev (although firstname.lastname@example.org would be better)...

The failure is in an odd place, it seems strange that this patch could have caused it. Anyway, please apply this patch on top of a broken kernel and modify it to provide your own MAC address. Then see if the problem still exists. It brings behaviour back closer to what it used to be.
I probably have the same problem in 32bit mode.
I have the folowings information in the dmesg
zd1211rw 1-4.1:1.0: firmware version 4605
zd1211rw 1-4.1:1.0: zd1211 chip 0ace:1211 v4330 high 00-11-f6 RF2959_RF pa0 -----
zd1211rw 1-4.1:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -110
the problem stay the same with the patch applied.

dmesg with zd1211 debug enabled
With the driver included in 2.6.25-rc1 my device is back alive.
I don't know if this info can help fixing the driver in 2.6.23/24 (this driver is a port to the news wifi stack)
But, at least in my case, waiting for 2.6.25 will fix the problem.
