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.
I don't have a "lease-time" set in the DHCP server, I always thought they would last indefinitely if that were the case. Maybe they time out if not in use?
I'll try a static IP addy on the PC Card and report back in a few days.
