Strange WEP-failure with wlan-ng 1.14 and 1.15pre5
I'm running SuSE 8.0 on an IBM Thinkpad T30 with a built-in wireless
card (Prism2) using 40 bit WEP. I've tried wlan-ng 1.14 and 1.15pre5
and normally the card works just fine, but under very particular
circumstances (see below) the card suddenly hangs. To get the card
working again i even have to reload the prism2_pci (and the p80211 ?)
This problem occurs when i try to send (not receive) larger files
(typically at least 4-5 MB, compressed size) using cvs or rsync,
tunneled through ssh.
If I make a small change to this setup, _anyone_ of those below,
everything works just fine:
1) receiving files instead
2) sending smaller files, less than 1MB
3) communicating through my ordinary Ethernet cable
4) use cvs or rsync directly, without the ssh tunnel (not an option!)
5) copying the files directly with scp
My test-files (I've tried many) consist of 5MB randomly generated binary
data (making possible ssh compression ineffective).
ssh : OpenSSH_3.4p1, using SSH protocol 1
cvs : 1.11.1p1
rsync : 2.4.6 and 2.5.5
kernel (SuSE): 2.4.18-GB
Is there some problem with these wlan-ng drivers?
Any help would be appreciated.
