Yes, the macbook confirms that I've joined the wireless network but the DHCP negotiation appears to be failing. I am running with 128 bit WEP and a MAC access control list on the router. If I drop WEP altogether and leave only the MAC access control list, both the Macbook and PC are able to negotiate a DHCP ip assignment. The IP being assigned is the infamous self-assigned IP 169.254.x.x.

Everything, I've been able to turn up suggest that this problem is with Apple's software, though Apple seems to be pointing fingers at 3rd party hardware vendors. I am going to see what is involved in getting WPA security to work and give that a shot. Otherwise will probably just have to wait until Apple pulls their head outta their proverbial backside and fixes the problem. That assumes of course that it is in fact an Apple problem.
