I have that here on occasion on debian unstable, kernel with a
IPW2200 abg card.  The scenario here is that most of the times, networking
just comes back after a suspend on my dell inspiron 4100.  A few times,
wmwifi and wavemon show I have an association with my WRT but nothing
really is happening.  

I have /etc/network/interfaces kinda tricked out so I can have support for
different locations wireless requirements.  I just do a "ifdown eth1" and
then I do a "ifup eth1=home".  Sometimes, the ipw2200 driver is in a state
of funk and it requires more manual intervention so I remove it and
re-insert it and it comes back.  This is with apm, BTW.  My laptop will
not talk acpi.
