Does the output of a dmesg command have anything to say when it cuts
out? I have a BCM4312 (rev 1) card that works perfectly - it is not a
generic problem with the driver. Kernels later than the one in
openSUSE 11.0 have updated code in mac80211 that makes connections a
lot more robust, but your 2.6.25 should be OK.

Don’t post it all. We do not need most of it. You should see a line
that says “wlan0: associated”. Send it and the stuff that follows.
