thanks! I did the same thing on my setup and diff'ed the resulting trace
file with yours. I spotted a difference but it should not be relevant:
(your trace): drv_prepare_multicast: phy0 prepare mc (5)
(my trace): drv_prepare_multicast: phy0 prepare mc (1)
I am wondering if the problem could be explained by a RF kill switch
being active. Can you send me the output of 'rfkill list' and 'lsmod' ?
Are there wireless-related LEDs on your machine and do they act
differently between kernel 3.0.1 and 2.6.39-2 ?
Can you do a 'rfkill unblock all' to see if that makes a difference ?
Can you read this thread for more ideas:
Let me know how this works out, if unsuccessful we'll have to dig a bit
