    We are attempting to perform wireless recon for a client but we are having
    trouble using NetStumbler.  We have an Orinoco Gold NIC with legit WEP keys
    (provided by the client).  We connect to the AP and continue to login to the
    NT domain as normal.  We can browse the network all around no problem.  We
    start Netstumbler and it gets the closest AP that we are close to and then
    the NIC dies.  All connectivity is lost.  Netstumbler still runs, but it
    will not find any AP's (because the NIC is dead)
    Stopping and restarting the PC Card, network service, or doing any ipconfig
    command does not revive the NIC.  We must reboot.  The AP is a RoamAbout
    from Enterasys Networks.
    By the way, we do not have this problem at their other site.  Any ideas?
