Ouch, that's a nasty one. IIRC, this module has had similar problems in
the past, and I remember temporarily fixing it by removing and
re-inserting the module. I've got a laptop that has this wireless card,
but I haven't upgraded to Intrepid, yet (works fine in Hardy).

Has a bug been filed for this problem ? If so, what's the bug number at
Launchpad ?
