I'll have to look into the tool you mention for schemes and all. As far
as the tools go to manage a variety of network types, I have to admit to
using the most basic. I tend to use modprobe -r and then I re-insert the
driver into the kernel. I almost never have to reboot and the truly
random nature of things proved itself this morning as the laptop came
back with the card fully functional.
I think I will go looking at some of the various tools in the list
archives and the ones mentioned in this thread. But when the card does
reach its funky state, I have not found much besides a basic method to
revive it :)
