    For some reason, my PC that I just upgraded to SP3 will no longer maintain a
    connection to my WPA-encrypted network. I have two other PCs that connect
    fine, so it's not the router. MAC filtering is not enabled on the router...
    it's definitely something with this PC. I have the latest driver installed
    for my Edimax EW-7128G wifi adapter.

    The network card will connect to the router, but will not acquire an IP
    address for what appears to be longer than 1 second. In other words, the
    adapter will connect using WPA for about 1 second, then disconnect for about
    5 seconds, the cycle starts all over again and goes on endlessly. I've seen
    that lots of folks have this problem with their laptops.
