     61After suffering repeat kernel panics on my SMC WPCIT-G, I have done the following:  
     62 
     631) reduced the beacon interval time: iwpriv ath0 bintval 500 
     64 
     652) locked to 802.11g: iwpriv ath0 mode 3 
     66 
     673) manually set channel: iwconfig ath0 channel 9 
     68 
     694) disabled turbo mode: iwpriv ath0 turbo 0 
     70 
     71I now have no more kernel panics, but network throughput is poor. SBPs still occur, but very infrequently (sometimes none in a day, other times every few minutes - log reveals none in last five days). Certain wireless cards now have difficulty maintaining a connection (especially Intel Centrino-based devices). Clients with identical SMC cards have no problem and network uptime is over 30days. Thus, not an ideal solution, but a working system in the interim.
