I have this same wireless card and it had been working *perfectly* out of the
box with the ath5k kernel module until recently. I updated my sid system
Tuesday, which included some libraries but not a kernel update, and now my
wireless connection refuses to reconnect to anything. The very first time
(starting from a fresh boot) I attempt to connect it works, but all subsequent
times it fails until I reboot or reload all the related modules.
I am also using wicd. I upgraded wicd to experimental, and the issue still
(Being the holidays,) I am at a relative's house, and they are using some
funny router from Verizon. It is possible that the issue is on the router's
end, or that it is some combination of issues between my laptop and the
router. At this point I am thinking that it might that the combination of a
buggy router and my system is causing the problem.
