I can see networks with eth0 down and wlan0 up.

I then turned off encryption on my access point and tried to connect with wlan0 and it didn't work. It did lock up WCID again but amazingly I'm still connected after I turned eth0 back up.

The wifi light is on, I see networks, but any attempt to connect to one fails (and locks up WCID).

It's like this laptop doesn't want to be wireless...
