    ftp breaks wifi

    Whenever I use an ftp client (gftp and FileZilla mostly), eventually my wifi connection breaks.

    I have to disconnect the router from the power supply, wait a couple of seconds and plug it in again. Sometimes network manager reconnects automatically, sometimes I have to reconnect manually and at other times I have to log off and on again before I can reconnect. The symptoms are very similar to this bug, but exclusively happen while I have an ftp connection established.

    The only other instance of my problem I could find is someone ftping into his x-box.

    I use a D-LINK DSL-G624T router (which I learned to hate pretty soon),
    lspci reports

    03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02)
    and I (still) am on ubuntu 7.10.

    Anybody with the same problem or an idea how to fix it even? Thank you.

    Update: So I bought a cable, so the problem is still there, so uploads just break the bloody router?
