I have tried to keep out of this, but I just want to make it clear, that the
dropout problem is NOT an 802.11 problem, or at least not solely an 802.11
problem. I and others suffer from dropouts with a wired network. It least
some of the dropouts seem to be related to library scans, but then others
happen at random times. So, those problems might well be reduced by the db.
