really odd network-related problems.
For example, ssh & scp work fine.
HTTP is totally broken: most web pages time out (either in DNS or
during page load), but occasionally I can get a whole webpage. Tested
this in all of Firefox, Seamonkey and w3m, so I'm fairly sure it's not
just a broken Firefox. I seem to have excluded local factors, such as
the router and network connection itself, since other machines in my
office work fine.
ping is OK with small and large packet sizes.
DNS lookups work fine from command line tools (eg. ping, ssh), but
fail quite a lot in browsers.

The network is wireless, using iwl3945 driver, configured by
NetworkManager. As far as I'm aware the kernel is untainted and there
is no non-free software installed on the machine.
Nothing very interesting in dmesg except some oopses in
sched_mc_power_savings_store which appear to be unrelated.
There's breakage upstream in wireless-land for all mac80211-based
drivers (b43, b43-legacy, iwl3945, iwl4965, ath5k, rt2x00, etc) while
fallout from Dave Miller's multiqueue patches is fixed up. mac80211 was
incorrectly using the skb->cb field that the multiqueue patches are now
also using, and that conflict is causing a lot of random weirdness.
