I find the support for the bcm is somewhat a bit off with the 2.6.17.x 
I cannot confirm the 17-x versions for the kernel, I tried one of them a few 
weeks back, but had problem connecting to any ap, both withouth and with 
hiddden SSID. I needed two or more tries to get a ip and often lost it, while 
2.6.17-rc6 had no problem connecting to any ap at the first  try.

Also the 2.6.15 deb stock kernel worked perfect for me.

2.6.18-rc* hangs hard at any point it feels for.
