It'll be hard to test now, but my--gut reaction--guess would be that your
N800 is continuously polling the access point for DHCP. Did it give an error
about local network addresses or the like? I'm not sure I've see the '?'
icon before and it would be interesting to know exactly how much network you
get on hpcfwl without having your MAC in the ACL. Does it assign you a
non-routable address and stick you in a VLan so you can't do any harm, does
it just refuse to talk to your device, or what? Your network engineer might
have some ideas with this...
