Wireless suddenly not working

I just realized that there is a forum that may be a better place for the post that I posted in the laptop section. If a moderator reads this, please feel free to delete the topic of the same name in the Laptop and Handhelds section.

Ive been using my Dell 600m with Fedora Core 2 for quite some time now without problems. I have an IPW2200bg wireless card, which I was using with the DriverLoader driver wrapper. Just yesterday, my wireless connection stopped working. When I tried to activate it, it gave me the following message:

Determining IP information for eth1...External network device eth1 is not ready. Aborting..

I had at the time been using the driverloader 30 day trial, so I figured it might have expired. So I purchased a license key for $20, and entered it in. It accepted it as a valid key, but now when I try to start my wireless device it still says "Determining IP information for eth1...External network device eth1 is not ready. Aborting..". This leads me to believe that its not a problem with driverloader, but rather with something else.

I am quite stumped as to what the problem may be. My router seems to be working fine, as I can still connect to it via the ethernet ports, and the wireless settings on the administration setup are still the same. Im starting college in a week, and Im going to need to have a wireless connection working by then, so this is sort of important. Hopefully someone here can lend me a hand. If anyone can, I would really appreciate it.
