Since I updated to kernel-2.6.31.6-162.fc12.i686 on my EeePC 1000

connections, dropped frames even when pinging the local AP, endless
browswer waits while "Resolving host ...". The same AP supports 1 iMac,
a Mac Mini, 3 laptops and about 6 iPhones, all with no problems, but I
reset it anyway just in case, to no effect. I've spent a couple of days
fraking around with NM before deciding to try rolling back to
kernel-2.6.31.6-145.fc12.i686, which immediately solved all the
problems.

The chipset is an AR928x. Had anyone else seen this? I'll BZ if
necessary.

Is the kernel the only thing that changed?  Try booting an older one
and see if the problem goes away.  If it does, then yes, bugzilla it
immediately.  If an updated kernel breaks something as basic as
networking, that makes it "necessary".  :-)
