Cool Wireless D-Link DWL-G650 h/w ver.:C2 f/w.:3.1.6 freeze Toshiba 8200 laptop


I had a struggle to install my wireless, you can read more about that in fedoraforum.org , thread 44954

But after the solution (acpi=off in kernel startup) I was happy surfing for two days. Then suddenly in the middle of surfing (in the forums at mpeg-playcenter.com ) the computer suddenly freeze. And I promise, I have done nothing between working to freeze with updates or nothing, only surfing (don't fix it if it works ). Only reset button work after freeze.

After that first freeze, it now freeze everytime I put in the pcmcia card. When I put in the card I get this in /var/log/messages (if I use dhcp):

- I'm new to Linux (know nothing more or less)
- So I get no help from "messages" what I can see
- I have 2.6.10-1.770_FC3
- I remember that I used a USB mouse at the time that the computer freeze the first time. Maybe something with USB? Or maybe not, because it now freeze even without the USB mouse...
- I'm using madwifi.
- And I have "acpi=off" in my kernel grub startup. Can this give some problems like this? I have also tried "pci=noacpi"
- I have also tried
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.770_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet pci=noacpi nousb
- My computer also use IRQ 11 a lot for network (maybe also for USB, but don't know that for sure). In Windows XP (don't know how to check this in Linux):

Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
Memory Range F7DF7000 - F7DF7FFF
I/O Range DEC0 - DEFF
IRQ 11

Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card
I/O Range FF40 - FF7F
IRQ 11

D-Link AirPlus DWL-G650 Wireless Cardbus Adapter(rev.C)
Memory Range E7FF0000 - E7FFFFFF
IRQ 11

(But in XP they all work OK together and/or separatelly )

I'm totally lost. Any ideas?
