Jouri,

You're correct - the card is never getting an address, perhaps a more
clear debug:

it sure looks like the AP is not responding.  The AP is a Nortel AP2220,
(real manufacturer now owned by cisco)  and does believe the wireless
card to be associated, and in fact, reports "wireless: Notice:
802.11a:Station Associated: 00-20-d8-03-86-94" every 10 seconds.


thanks
