I got an EDIMAX EW-7811UN Wireless USB Adapter [1]
(150 Mbit/s, IEEE802.11b/g/n) to use on a few systems that
don't yet have supported onboard adapters.

While using this I get `no buffer space available` regularly,
including from dhclient.

It an old bug - dhclient listens to the RTM_IEEE80211_ASSOC event, and,
when it arrives, tries to send a request. However, in an encrypted network,
this event goes before 4-way handshake occurs - so, there is a chance,
that packet will be discarded because there is no key available yet.
(also, this event is used by wpa_supplicant, so we cannot just send it

This sometimes requires me to
hard reboot to regain network connectivity. Is there anything
I can do about this?

There is some instability with RTL8188CUS chipset (sometimes its just
stops working); you can restart it with
1) ifconfig wlan0 down
2) ifconfig wlan0 destroy
3) usbconfig -d <device> power_off
4) usbconfig -d <device> power_on

BTW specific recommendations on better-supported USB widgets
are welcome.

For me, TP-Link TL-WN725N works a bit better (but there may be some
better supported chipsets).
