[driverloader] Has anyone fixed "driver hung" problems?

I'm having a problem with Driverloader (latest version) and the Intel
2200 mini-pci card on Fedora Core 3 on a Compal CL56 laptop.
Periodically, I lose my connection to the AP and have to remove and
re-add the driverloader kernel module. It's not a distance issue -- this
can happen even if I'm inches from the AP. It *may* happen more when the
driver is under heavy load, but I'm not sure. dmesg includes many
instances of the hangcheck...driver hung reports when this happens.
Also, it happens whether I use the w22n51 driver (the one linked on the
Linuxant website) or the newer w29n51 driver (from Intel's website).
I've also experimented with different kernels, all with the same results
(all with the Linuxant 16k stack patch applied and selected in the
kernel config).

I've been e-mailing with Linuxant support but we have not found a
solution.  Has anyone else out there had this problem and solved it?
