HELP ! System hangs when after using a web browser after new linksys wifi card.
 
Hi

I recently bought a linksys 802.11g pcmcia card (the one with speedbooster).

I'm online with it right now, it's my only way to get on right now.

I compiled a new kernel since ndiswrapper demanded I have the 4k blocks option off (under "kernel hacks"), and have module support.

I can get online with dhcpcd wlan0, I can use GAIM and such, but when I use Firefox, during, or just shortly after I close firefox, I have a system hang, it literally "freezes" (haven't heard that term in a long time).

Has anyone had this problem before ? Could it be at the kernel level or would it be due to issues with my Mozilla libraries ? (Epiphany, Mozilla, AND Firefox all hang my system).

Please help :(.

The system tends to hang right after I close Firefox.
