Expected results:

Additional info:
this happens with and without the firmware[1]. in the later case the box behaves
crazy. on "input field" eg. console or firefox adresse line all letters gets
repeated indefinitely. "a" becomes "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....."

same seen on F8 kernel since

I got two of this prism54 cards.
up to F9 beta on this box, where this bz is about, always isl3886 firmware was
loaded eg. p54pci module was active. 
on the other box was always isl3890 firmware loaded eg. prism54. 
both cards were operating.

Here is a similar problem, maybe.

Unfortunately, I could not repeat the problem, and I was fooling around with
NetworkManager at the time - disabling and enabling wireless and changing

The good news is that iwl3945 and NetworkManager managed to work in other
conditions, and didn't fail at all when I rebooted to the current version of
