Thx for your report.
But you should care of the right component
Re-Assigned to the right component (the kernel)
For cases like this, you can use the previous kernel (kernel-184.108.40.206-137.fc8)
Or test a newer kernel in updates-testing (when available).
oops, i didn't saw that your have tested a koji kernel 220.127.116.11-22.fc8...
It's not clear that this is a "kernel" issue. If I do not load the
iwl4965-firmware package, then the card is not detected at all. It almost
*appears* as though the packages is a separately maintained module. I merely
offer this as a point of perspective and consideration and am not arguing with
I've got simmilar problem using Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g]
802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02). Connection hangs after a while
(especially after a heavy load). Tried b43 & ndiswrapper. Only after switching
to previous kernel everything started to work great.

Please note that the situation described in this bug and steps to reproduce are
different than that of bug 436577.
Bug 436577 describes the inability to connect and obtain an IP. I am able to
connect and obtain an IP, then it fails.
The backtraces are very similar. If that bug closes and your problem
persists, feel free to reopen this one...thanks!
