Well, I guess I get to add myself to the list of victims with strange
unexplained airport failures. Tonight, after about 5 hours of
working flawlessly, suddenly I couldn't get my airport connection to
work anymore. I updated to 2.4.19 last night, but I don't know if
that is related. One thing I *did* notice was that iwconfig stopped
reporting the encryption key of the card (it wasn't just off, the
whole line disappeared). Bringing the interface up and down didn't
seem to help. I messed around and rebooted a couple of times and
now it is working.
Another piece of evidence for the pile.
