Any solutions to this problem? I also have a T30 with the exact same problem. 
The net seems to work fine until there is some  load on it. Could it be an irq 

I have tried a number of different versions
kernel 2.4.18, 2.4.20
hostap 20021012, CVS from Jan 29, CVS from Feb 3
orinoco_pci 0.11b, 0.13
linux-wlan-ng prism driver 0.14, 0.15, 0.16pre9

The hostap driver is the one that seems to work the best (or rather least bad),
but it is rather anoying that you have to "tip-toe" around the net to not hang
