I'm using a Dell Latitude C800 installed with Fedora (completely updated). As wireless card i use a Linksys wpc54g.

There is someting strange going on and don't know how to solve. I start up my laptop and the wpc54g is getting an IP adres by DHCP. Everything is working well and i can surf the internet. When I restart the laptop the wpc54g get's an ip adres but i can't reach any hosts on my local network or the internet. (Destination Host Unreachable).

I can power or restart the laptop but is doesn't work anymore.

So i've got angry and pressed the power button with the system running. The next time i had a try it was working again.

Thus the only solution to keep the wpc54g working is not to shutdown the laptop but just pull the "plug".

Has anyone the same experience?
