Your problem might be due to broken hardware, see Rob Owens's message
earlier in this thread:
If you cannot get a warranty replacement then you should consider buying
a cheap and well-supported USB or PCMCIA wireless device, as Rob also
suggested; this approach is often preferable to endless fighting with
flaky built-in hardware.
(The possibility of hardware failure was the main reason why I kept
nagging about trying the device under Windows, to have an independent
test under an OS that is "officially supported" by the manufacturer.)
