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.
