I've got an i1460. When I put a PCMCIA wireless ethernet card in the 
slot, the laptop typically makes a single or double beep and the PCMCIA 
controller recognizes the card and goes on it's merry way.
All of a sudden today, when I put the card in to get some work done, the 
laptop started making first a high pitch beep as usual, and then after a 
second, a low pitch beep. Linux won't recognize that the device exists.
Anyone have any idea if this is a hardware or a software issue? The card 
seems to work on other machines. Another non-wireless NIC configures 
properly. The wireless PCMCIA NIC is getting power and has a steady 
signal; the idiot lights on it confirm that much.

*bashes head against desk* It was working perrrfectly this morning.
