unpredictable wireless behaviour Suse 10.9 ndiswrapper 1.2
I have kind of managed to get wireless working on Suse 10.9 with ndiswrapper 1.2 with my D-Link DWL-G650 (rev B) card. Here is the ndiswrapper and iwconfig output to prove it :
ndiswrapper: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
ndiswrapper version 1.2 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)
ndiswrapper: driver net5211 (D-Link,7/14/2004,188.8.131.52) loaded

The only problem is that my surfing is weird :
- some sites (my supermarket, my bank, linuxquestions.org) work fine
- some sites (bbc.co.uk, amazon.co.uk) have problems connecting, sometimes not responding or timing out or being VERY slow
- some sites (Google - go figure) not connecting at all.
Does anyone have any ideas of where to look?
