Connects fine to WAP but can't get IP address via DHCP

    OK, this used to work, now it doesn't. I'm stumped...

    If I plug in my wireless PCMCIA NIC while I am wired to my LAN, it gets
    assigned an IP address (I then have 2, 1 for the wired NIC and 1 for the
    wireless). I can then disconnect from the wired LAN and have wireless home
    internetworking, internet, etc..

    HOWEVER, if I plug in the NIC when off the wired LAN I connect fine to my
    WAP but my router does not assign me an IP address. In this scenario my
    connection status shows packets being sent but zero received, and a
    connection status of Very Good or Excellent.

    I am using 64bit WEP, and confirmed I do not have either the Advanced
    Networking XP Hotfix or the WPA XP Hotfix installed.

    Any thoughts?
