breezy - dapper upgrade broke wireless

I have an Averatec 3250 working: X would hang at seemingly random 
moments and getting the RA2500 wireless configuration working took a bit 
of effort.  But, it works.  I can publish my RA2500 (RA0) config in 
/etc/network/interfaces if that would help.  The major change was that 
of adding "acpi=ht" to the kernel line in the boot sequence.  I haven't 
added it permanently to my grub config until I am certain that I have no 
other choice.  I turn the eth0 network interface off/on manually since I 
don't really need it.

I am a SuSE convert to Ubuntu.  I am not pleased with what is happening 
to the SuSE product since Novell got into the act.
