Yeah. I've had similar same problems at my University. I'm running a Dell Inspiron 1420 with a Broadcom wireless card, and I have the same issues. My Linux machine has never crashed on my home network... only on the school's (in both Xubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu 8.10).
Of course... on the Vista side, my machine always crashes. But that's to be expected.
Unlike your issue, though, the crashes are totally abrupt. The system never slows down... it just dies on me.
I wish I could help more, but all I've done to solve the issue is bear the pain and put up with the freezes. I'd like to see what anyone else has to say about this, too.
