I guess debian is the upstream for network scripts in OE based
distributions so it's complete and working, while the kernel 2.6.28
seems to be more stable about wifi.
I'm not using 2.6.28 as in my latest check bluetooth does not work
after suspend/resume and I'm not sure if some recent kernel changes
may break new fso or other applications.
