    Angry Vista and Ubuntu with Airport Extreme
    Holy crap what a headache!
    I have an Airport Extreme hooked up configured and functioning here in my apartment.
    My vista desktop is wired into the Airport and is working fine.
    My Ubuntu machine is an ancient Dell Inspiron 1100 with a Netgear 802.11b pcmcia card that functions normally very well with ndiswrapper.
    Ubuntu sees the wireless network and is able to connect to it. I get the bars and everything. However I cannot ping the gateway (router) or the internet. The Airport logs verify the connection is made.
    I am running nm-applet in ubuntu and it verifies that no networking info (ip address, etc) is being assigned to my laptop, so while being connected I am not being fully routed.

    Thank you!

    I had this problem with ubuntu 8.04 (can't remember the rev now), I believe going to 8.10 fixed it.
