I've turned wireless off using the hardware kill switch for a couple of
days and have not had another lockup. This is too early to call, but it
might be the wireless after all. Note that if it's true, putting the
interface down and using a wired connection did not prevent the lockups,
only using the hardware kill switch did.

My card is a 6205 and I'm using the latest microcode (from february).

Will keep you guys posted.
