I was a happy driverloader user since several months.
Last time I used the wifi connection was Friday night.  I then leave the
home for the whole week-end and when I came back on Sunday eve, nothing
worked anymore :-(

I rebooted the AP, the router (and DHCP) server but ... nothing changed.

It is just like I did not see the link anymore : iwconfig reports a 0
signal strength.

I did not change / upgrade anything on my laptop.... any help ?
