I had been using my Dell Dimension 8250 running Hardy for a while. I have been connecting wirelessly with Compaq iPAQ 11Mbps Wireless USB Adapter. At first, Hardy had no problems connecting to the internet. I just plugged it in and it worked. About a month ago, it stopped connecting. I could still see the connection as well as how much signal I had, but I couldn't use anything online. I stopped using the computer until yesterday, when I upgraded to Ibex, hoping the internet would start working again. However, now I no longer even see the signal.

On a semi-related problem, logging out causes a black screen. I uninstalled NetworkManager, and this problem stopped. I reinstalled it, and the problem started again.

Edit: The black screen on log out only occurs when both NetworkManager is installed and Wireless Adapter is plugged in.
