HP dv2500t w/ Intel 4965 AGN -- very odd problem across several distros

Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10 RC/Final
Kubuntu 7.10 RC/Final
Arch Linux (Don't Panic)
Fedora 8

In every distro I've tried to connect to my wireless network via the gui and console. I've tried changing the router's wireless channel. I've tried turning off WEP encryption. I've tried ndiswrapper and madwifi. I've tried using the latest intel drivers. I've tried asking all the distros forums for help and I haven't gotten anywhere. So, now I'm asking here in a last ditch effort to resolve this problem.

The problem is that whenever I try to connect to my router wirelessly all the other computers connected to it are instantly disconnected and the router stops broadcasting its ESSID. Just using iwlist scan will cause the same thing as well, but it also appears to affect all the hotspots in my neighborhood in the same way.

I have none of these problems in Windows XP or Vista.

Output from attempted console connection:
wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801
wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801
Listening on LPF/wlan0/00:13:e8:a7:f1:2b
Sending on LPF/wlan0/00:13:e8:a7:f1:2b
Sending on Socket/fallback
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to port 67 interval 7
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to port 67 interval 8
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to port 67 interval 20
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to port 67 interval 21
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to port 67 interval 5
No DHCPOFFERS received.
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.
I just realized there's a wireless subforum but I can't delete this thread and repost there, sorry.
