Description of problem:
I have notice this behavior in Firefox, Pidgin, and yum. In firefox, if I attempt to visit a website, the system will freeze the moment it starts transferring www.***.com. In Pidgin, the system freezes when you attempt to connect to a im service. In yum, it occurs when it queries the repositories. This occurs in the Test 3 Release of Fedora on an Acer Aspire 3003 WLCi with a Broadcom 4318 air force one wireless b/g adapter and a SiS 900 Ethernet adapter. In my particular case, I upgraded to Test 3 from test 2 via yum.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a program that transmits/receives information over the internet
2. Attempt to transmit/receive information.
System Froze. Caps Lock light blinks.
The information should have been transmitted or received.
Is this somehow reproducible with netcat or why is it assigned on netcat?

> ...why is it assigned on netcat?
Because I didn't know where to put it. I looked for something that resembled
"network" and put it there.
I guess this is your wifi card driver problem hence reassigning to kernel.
