Looks like that did the trick. I just managed to stay connected for 
about fifteen minutes without a hiccup. Let's see if it proves stable 
during the next days.

BTW, the card is an Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG. I guess the reason why it 
worked OK before is that Slackware ships with the most common 
proprietary firmware.

Anyway, thanks for the hint, and I'll keep you posted.
