Oh, this is great...

So I'm at kion's house, on the wireless network, IPsec is working perfectly, blah blah blah.

I come home, change my IP to be something on my local network, plug the card in and try to bring wlan0 up.

SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device

Great. Juuuuust great.

PCMCIA detects it and loads the right driver, the driver is happy, 'ifconfig wlan0' sees the interface and shows the right IP/subnet/etc, I just can't bring the network up.

I know it's not my WAP, because when I try to run Kismet, I get the same error message.

I swear to Jeebus, I am buying a new laptop in the near future. My mom can get as pissed off as she wants about me "wasting" money, I don't care.

I can't get my XP applications (Outlook, Mozilla) to stop losing the network after a few hours, even though the connection is still up and good. It just plain makes me mad. I know it's an XP configuration problem, but I can't figure it out.

I'm just bitching because your problem reminded me of mine. I know what your advice is going to be already - switch to Linux and get Mutt. ;-)

Or KMail, or Evolution, or ...

Damn right...I don't even have any machines with Windows on them anymore. :)
