I'm not sure if this is a general issue with 802.11 or if it's related to my setup. Maybe someone can give me a pointer.

Rebooting from a "hibernated" state almost always results in wireless networking not working. It finds the connection to my access point, and I get the bubble message telling me "connected to TJ signal strength excellent" but I have no networking.
It looks to me like it's not even trying. The 404 errors in the web browser, and the error messages in Outlook appear way too fast to give me the impression it had a go at connecting.
A clean reboot (no hibernation) cures it.
It's almost like it connects to the AP, but doesn't get a valid IP addy from the DHCP server or something similar?
I find it irritating because I love the hibernate facility and use it all the time.
It works fine about 40% of the time.
