Is there a strange bug involved in Intel's implementation of Wi-Fi on Centrino 2?

eWEEK Channel Insider's Frank Ohlhorst came across a strange problem while testing new notebooks from both Fujitsu and Lenovo and connecting to a Linksys (and then a Netgear) access point.

Ohlhorst writes, "I was able to connect to the access points, but the access points refused to send any packets back to the notebook computers (or more likely, the notebook computers refused to receive incoming wireless packets). So, even though I had a wireless connection, I was unable to get an IP address via DHCP or access the network."
