    Macbook 2,1 8.04 single-boot : Continuous errors from madwifi in syslog and kernlog

    I'm seeing this error showing up in my logs 3 times every second:

    [timestamp][system name]kernel: [11747.073299] wifi0: ath_rxorn_tasklet: Receive FIFO overrun; resetting.

    What could be causing this? I installed madwifi the same way I did in 7.04, following the macbook wiki page.

    Wifi works, but the connectio dies occasionally, more often than in 7.04. Sometimes I am unable to reconnect even though the network is still there.

    Here's my iwconfig output when disconnected:

    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    wifi0 no wireless extensions.
