2) Wireless card is Netgear WG311 v2. It says 54 mbps, 802.11g on the box if that's helpful.
3) The computer is a desktop homebuild (I knocked it together out of assorted bits). AMD Athlon XP2600+ (1.92ghz), 1.25 GB RAM, Radeon 9200 128MB graphics.
This is what we need.

The wireless card did not get a DHCP response in the time allowed and thus timed out.
DHCP is the protocol that automatically assigns things like IP address, DNS servers, gateways etc...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_Ho ... n_Protocol

DHCP is not an inbound protocol for your router its used for alot things, but for right now its not an inbound protocol. DHCP is and can be used to assign a cable modem various things just like a on your LAN.

Is the router working for your internet connection? Can other computers access internet based actions such as web sites, email, ftp, telnet at remote sites?
Double check that your routers DHCP server is activated... sounds like it may not be on and thus when the wireless card is attempting to get a DHCP response its not getting one.
Double check that and then try to get back on line with the wireless under LM and report back.
Does the KNetworkManager show other wireless networks including yours in the list of available ones?
