With all tests client laptop was Orinoco Silver, signal level approx -40db.

HostAP box was a duron 800 with Sparklan PCI wireless card

Test was to wget a 400mb file from a web server running on the HostAP box itself.

All tests done using firmware 1.1.1/1.5.6

Release 2002-10-12
card lockup after 191mb
performed manual reset
pulled another ~800mb with no more problems

Release 0.0.1
hard lockup after 198mb (no messages on screen, hard reboot needed)
repeated, locked after 54mb

Release 0.0.2
locked hard after 90mb
repeated, locked after 122mb

This pretty much confirms what other people have been saying I think.
I was going to try some different firmwares but not really sure if there
is much point now (since it worked fine pre 0.0.1).
