Ok.

Did some further experimenting. I remembered having an Thomson st121g USB 
WLAN stick and tried that (Prism chipset). With the same distro and config 
it works fine using minstrel or pid; i.e. with an MTU of 1500 no problems 
whatsoever. If I bring the box down and use my zd1211 stick instead (some 
distro/config) and boot it, it doesn't work with any MTU > 500 using pid or 
minstrel.

So this must be some zd1211rw driver issue. It isn't the slackware setup and 
not the hardware; i.e. not the embedded box since the st121g works fine on 
it and not the zd1211 stick since I used three separate sticks (from three 
different manufacturers: icidu, msi and cc&c) and they all have the same 
problem.

Any further clues?

BTW; the svn for the zd1211rw driver shows that the latest version is 3 
years old?

TIA

Ernst

Hmm, unfortunately yes - you can build both in to have it runtime 
switch-able, but you have to have both in before that can happen.(mintrel is 
the default).
