Default Squeeze. Intel 2100 Wifi card breaks connection with fatal interrupt.

Hello, list!

I have IBM ThinkPad R40 laptop with Intel 2100 Wifi card.
# lspci -nn -k |grep 2100

02:02.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN
2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter [8086:1043] (rev 04)

Kernel driver in use: ipw2100


# dmesg

[ 6.620367] ipw2100 0000:02:02.0: firmware: requesting ipw2100-1.3.fw

It is uses non-free firmware which was installed automatically during
system setup from Debian tarball downloaded from here:
http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/firmware/lenny/current/

Under continuous load (# apt-get dist-upgrade), wifi card is breaking
connection very quickly:
# tail -f /var/log/messages

# dmesg

[ 1023.425804] ipw2100: Fatal interrupt. Scheduling firmware restart.

[ 1039.719961] ipw2100: Fatal interrupt. Scheduling firmware restart.

So, wifi connection goes up and down frequently. In addition, there is
not visible interruption during regular web browsing.

In Debian Lenny that wifi card works stable and smooth but I need
Squeeze for some reason.
Please, help to troubleshoot that hardware disaster.
Thanks in advance for your time and effort!
