I've noticed a few things:

- At home, the wireless card fails each time I transfer a big file (more
than 300 MB through SSH) from other computer. I've got a Zyxel Prestige
650HW router with WEP enabled and signal quality is about 50/100
(obtained with iwconfig).

- At my university I can transfer a few big files before the fail. There
are Cisco APs and we use Cisco VPN to get Internet access.

- The card also fails using an ad-hoc connection.

- I think that the card can fail due to "hot", because in ac-less places
it fails earlier.

- I've seen other computers with ipw2200 and they doesn't fail. I've got
other laptop with ipw2200 that the only thing it does is to "reset
firmware" (saw in dmesg) a few times when a big file is transfered.

- I think that the fail comes when the card should be resetted.

- I've not tried to transfer any big file in Windows... I think I should
do it.

That's all by the moment.
