Hello everybody.
I digged the list  and founded that kernel hanging with endless resseting was not solved. 
Is it true?
During day when load is high on wlan i get message:

hostap_pci: wifi0 : resseting card

on the console and nothing happen, system is not responding 
I'm using hostap-utils version 0.2.6-1
kernel:

The card is senao on prism 2.5 chipset

I'd like to ask if writing cron scipt which checks if interface wlan0 is responding and if not it resets wlan0 with iwpriv wlan0 reset 1 is only way to make it work?

Thanks in advance.
