Network fails when X starts

Hi everyone,

I have following problem on my laptop.

When I start X I loe network connection. I have 3Com OfficeConnect wireless card, it just says "No Carrier Signal found" after I start X. When I restart network, everything works just fine.

I have made a script that re-enables the network when X starts, so this is not really a problem, but out of curiosity I would like to know whats wrong.

If you have any ideas...

My laptop is old HP Omnibook 4150B

500MHz P3
3Com OfficeConnect wireless LAN
Ubuntu 5.03 (only server installation and then other stuff. Same happens with default installation though)
