A quick Google hints that the R50e also has a 2200BG adapter -- I was
half hoping that it was a different card so I could write it off.

Since you're offering -- back on 7.x I had all kinds of problem with
the adapter: I had to double the send/recvbuf_max and had to disable
bgscan, otherwise the connection would die after ~6-12 hours,
depending on usage. Did you ever have similar issues, or is something
wonky with my machine?

I'll see if I can't grab some more hardware to test with to rule out
hardware failure or a broken install on my part.

As always, further suggestions and ideas are welcome :3
