  • priority changed from critical to major.

Some further information about your environment might help. Such as distro, kernel version, a dump of /proc/interrupts, the exact steps to reproduce the issue, and so on.

Did MadWifi work for you before? If so, which version did you use (and does that version still work)? Did you try already to move the card to a different slot? Can you please try to get a kernel oops dump (DevDocs/KernelOops might be of help here)?
