I haven't got any weird kernel panics and the disconnects keep
happening, so I'm assuming [my last email's issue] it's unrelated.
Disconnects still happen, on twenty three of them, eight are reason 2,
two reason 3, five reason 4, seven reason 10 and one reason 23.

One question, though: iwl3945 has no powersave capabilities (Intel was
unable to fix all the bugs associated with it and as such disabled
it). Does that mean the card always use full power? That could explain
the reason #10, no?
