I'm presuming XO-1.5.  Normally in a bug I'd scroll up to find that out,
since everything about a problem is in one place ... but I don't have
that luxury in e-mail.  If rebooting didn't solve it, then it is likely
to be electrostatic damage to the wireless device.

You can prove that by:

1.  checking for the wireless device using "ifconfig eth0" in the text
root console,

2.  checking for success of the "scan-wifi" command in OpenFirmware.

The fix is replacing the wireless device.

What do you mean "Mesh was fine?"
