Losing the network -- why?



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I was hoping this would get better with F10, but no such luck.  For the
last several months, my wireless network just stops. Sometimes it stays
up for days, sometimes for just a few hours.  The system tray gadget
shows a red X.  I can restart the network with 'service network
restart', but I can't find any errors in any log files indicating why
the network stopped in the first place. The card uses the standard ath5K
modules -- nothing "exotic".

kernel is
2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686 #1 SMP

lsmod
ath5k                 112520  0

lspci shows the card as
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg
NIC (rev 01)
