Debian first experience made a bit easier...

I installed debian a couple of days ago.
1st try with a new 8GB sandisk uSDHC card, which failed with IO errors. I
assume this is because of the SD card speed.
Tried with a sandisk 4GB uSDHC, using install.sh, with VFAT boot partition.
Install worked fine.
Some problems encountered :-
Re-camping. I can only tell it is doing this because I left it near my PC
and the speakers were picking it up! Happens about every 5-10mins.
I did not have this problem with SHR, it is stable for GSM. SMS has a few
quirks, but nothing major. I know there is a hardware fix for this, but why
no problems with SHR?
Wifi, could not connect to my T-Com (Germany) wireless router (WEP). It was
picked up using wifi-radar, but failed to get an IP address.
I have never been able to connect to this router though, even using command
line and config files etc. I have a new linksys N wifi router which I will
try it on soon.
GPRS worked fine.
Midori and tangoGPS do not pick anything up from the internet via USB
connection to PC. I can ping google no problem. Midori worked via GPRS.
Not sure how to put it into suspend, seems a bit flakey!
I have not had time to look into any of these problems yet, but will report
findings when I do.
