[driverloader] Configuration problem?

I, too, am having this problem.

I am able to see the AP (this is with and without WEP) and get all of the 
necessary info but can not get a dhcp address (i.e., make that final 
connecition).  Even with WEP not enabled, when I look at my AP management 
system (this is on an enterprise WLAN), I see my client associated but 
UNAUTHENTICATED.  At first glance one would say all is fine with the 
equipment and it must be authentication.  But am not able to get on this 
network with or WITHOUT Authentication (WEP) enabled.

I am using an HP zd7140 laptop with both the internal WNIC and an external 
D-Link WNIC (albeit not at the same time).  OS is Ubuntu.

So far I have not found a solution.
