Yes, I think this was it. While I was installing and tweaking things,
I was connected through ethernet and simultaneously trying to get the
wireless working. When I turned off ethernet and waited a while,
wireless started working. Since wireless has been flawless since then
and I haven't attempted ethernet, I think you might be right. Perhaps
I'll find the time to do a scientific investigation into this. For
now, it works. :)
Thanks for your input,
