Wow! Ok, I may have a chance... Which model do you have? Mine is the
PY416EA - I wonder if there are differences between the different

Same model (PY416EA) Mine has a #ABB after the number. Not sure if
it makes a difference.

It works, but it seems very tempramental. Today I was at a client who's
running a DHCP server on SLES9, and my notebook wouldn't pick up an
address. At home I have a netgear WGT624, and it picks up DHCP quite
easily, but then again at work (IP-COP box) it doesn't. If I give it a
static IP it works quite well though.

I have only one place where I have problems with getting a DHCP
address, but I never thought that it could be my network card, as it
works everywhere else.

I cannot remember if I had the same problem with my old laptop there.

Mine works too, it's just from time to time something seems to lock the
device, and skype's incoming sound just won't work reliably.

I don't have problems with locking of the sound device, and I have
only tried Skype voice once and I could not hear the other person. Sound breaks up. I blamed my network, but it might be the sound
system. I'll give it a go on my workstation.
You might have something here..

I was never too keen on all the ATI stuff in the mobo, but it was the
only laptop with the capabilities close to what I wanted available in
SA, so I did not have much of a choice.

But, for my needs it is fine. I don't use Skype much for voice as I
am generally on networks that is much too congested to allow that.
(due to our "wonderful" telecomms infrastructure here in SA....)
