Wireless card stopped receiving packets - Slackware


hello world!

I just installed Slackware 13 with xfce and everything went well (eventually). At first, my wireless didn't work, but then I found /etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf. Everything was working, and I was happily surfing and downloading packages.

But then one day... It just stopped! I tried to ping google, and it could send packets but not receive them.

There is no encryption on the router and it uses DHCP.

It's not a hardware issue since Ubuntu can access the network just fine.

Here is my iwconfig output, although I don't think it's of much use. I know it says link quality is 0, but even if it's positive, I have the same problem.

eth1 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"merakisecundus" Nickname:"slackware"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: 00:18:0A:01:7D:76
Bit Rate:54 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm Sensitivity=8/0
Retry limit:7 RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
Encryption key: off
Power Management: off
Link Quality=0/100 Signal level=-74 dBm Noise level=-89 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:98

What's going on?!?! help please!
