Description Tim Keitt 2003-03-03 22:39:15 UTC
Description of problem:

I get multiple "Error -110 writing Tx descriptor to BAP" messages in my logs
after which my wireless connection dies. The orinoco_pci module is the culprit.
If I do "ifdown eth1; modprobe -r ornico_pci; modprobe orinoco_pci; ifup eth1" I
usually, but not always, get my connection back.

Here's the relevant bits of 'lspci -v':
