A combo n/g according to the router--a DLink DIR 655.  (Though I tend to
doubt that, as I've always been under the impression that to run at N,
everything has to be at N.  I think one printer and my older laptop are
both G only.

I'm trying the suggestion I saw somewhere--hrrm, the bug that Bruno

iwconfig wlan0 power off

It's been working for at least 10 minutes now.  :)
