if you are not already running a 3.40.x.x version of the Windows XP driver, 
please try to upgrade/downgrade to this version of the Windows XP driver. You 
can obtain a 3.40.x.x version of the driver that will be compatible with your 
wireless card from the following URL :


Under Linux, you can use the 'unzip' command on the .EXE file to extract the 
Windows driver. The required .INF file will be named 'AR/bcmwl5a.inf' inside 
the .EXE file.

If you require more assistance, please send at support at linuxant.com the output 
of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('driverloaderdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
