Hi Everyone!

I just switched from 2.6.23-gentoo-r9 with rt2500 to 2.6.24-gentoo-r4
with rt2500pci and experience loss of connection from time to time...
(I'm using a simple setup with WEP encryption)

Also noticed that my dmesg buffer gets filled with the following messages

[codeb5cxx34l]

I've also tried the 2.6.25-rc9-wl but it was unfortunatly
even more unstable then the 2.6.24.

Which kernel & rt2500pci driver is considered to be the most stable?
Any hints whats causing this?

Thanks in advance

Michael

just tried the latest git kernel and it seems much more stable.
(hope it stays that way)
