So the WLAN connection itself works, the problem must be in upper
levels (DNS, DHCP, routing etc.). I'll add Patrik to CC.

Can you try to use web browser with IP address? For example, the URL
below should show the maemo.org website.

If that works, it's a DNS issue.

Also someone already mentioned about default gateway not set. If you
have xterm, please post here output of 'ifconfig' and 'route -n' at
the moment when WLAN is not working.
