This issue was introduced to Ubuntu 8.04 in the proposed 2.6.21 update (2.6.19 works fine). It also affects the newly released Ubuntu 8.10 with the 2.6.27 kernel.

Hello,

I have the same thing on my system, kernel 2.6.27.6 vanilla.
My wireless connection stops working, and the following appears in the logs

[b3e5930e1]phy0 -> rt2x00queue_write_tx_frame Error - Arrived at non-free entry in the non-full queue 2. Please file bug report to http//rt2x00.serialmonkey.com.[/b3e5930e1]

If I have seen that right, this behaviour appeared with kernel 2.6.[b3e5930e1]27.x[/b3e5930e1], 2.6.26.6 works flawlessly.

Please file bug report to http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com.[/code3es6by05] using rt73usb from vanilla 2.6.27.7 SMP. Connection just dies.
