Bug#562981: rt2860-source: connection drops - debian kernel 2.6.32
Thanks for following up on this. I haven't seen this happening on 3.x
kernels since I switched a few weeks back. I haven't been using the
system for gaming/voip or with synergy though, so it's possible my usage
patterns have changed .. but generally speaking I feel this is gone now.
