Two days ago I booted up my laptop like always but ran into a slight problem connecting to my wireless network.  Thinking my wireless card was dead, I used Ana’s (same brand and model) with the same results.  Her laptop also worked flawlessly with my card.  Crap.  Driver reinstalls have done nothing.

From what I can tell, it picks up the network just fine but it just cannot pull an ip address from the dhcp server.  Tinkering around with it more has me wondering if there’s something wrong with the cardbus slot.  I guess it really shouldn’t matter, the 4 year old machine already keeps me wired with its 5 minute battery life, what’s an extra cable for network connectivity?
