Xonotic disables Wi-Fi (OSX)
When Xonotic is started, wi-fi goes down... Happens on OSX 10.5.6, 10.6.8 and 10.7.3... This same bug exists on the old Nexuiz as well...

It sure is no bug in Xonotic, as no software, no matter how buggy, can crash a working router. Shutting down/rebooting/disconnecting a working router after all requires at the very least the password to its configuration system...
However, this doesn't mean it can't be possibly worked around. The general idea is to make Xonotic send packets less often. This will decrease gameplay experience, but may work around the router crashes.
Try: cl_netfps 30, and net_slist_queriespersecond 5.
But what I really recommend is upgrading the router firmware, and if that doesn't help, using your rights as a customer to get the router fixed or replaced by a working one.
I am keeping this ticket open for now, but will close it later, as it is clearly not a bug in Xonotic. Please respond whether any of these fixed your problem.
