Oops.. meant to give a bit more info here.  It typically displays messages
like this:

wlan0: LinkStatus=2 (Disconnected)
wlan0: LinkStatus: BSSID=00:05:5d:ea:65:4c
wlan0: LinkStatus=1 (Connected)
wlan0: LinkStatus: BSSID=00:05:5d:ea:65:4c

repeating each time it happens.  occasionally I'll have packets dropped
which were in transit when it flapped.

I'm running the Red Hat 9 kernel 2.4.20-9.
