Every boot with the card installed, or every time the card is inserted.
Steps to Reproduce:

2. insert RTL8185 wlan PC card (or card based on the RTL8180)

The attached error message was reproduced from a picture of the screen, so there
may be errors (especially with 0's and 8's; the picture was really fuzzy)

The error message
Created attachment 297889 [details]
So you can check the message text against what I saw.
Can you replicate this issue with the most recent F-8 kernel?
Problem solved! Works even better than 2.6.23. Thank you for the tip.
Great! How about adding some karma?
