The kernel i have is 2.6.24.19.21 and the one i can upgrade to is
2.6.24.21.23 so i guess that 26.21 is just a typo?
I can't see anything in the changelog for the kernel related to
network though there is some network related changes in the
linux-restricted-modules package. What networkcard do you have and
what driver is it using? I would file a bug and keep running the old
kernel until it's fixed.
