Hi Jeb,

I'm no guru, but I believe I ran into a similar problem, here is some
advice that I got:

Have you looked in your /etc/network/interface file? If your wireless
card is eth0, you should have an entry for you internal network card
that looks something like:

iface eth1 inet dhcp
name Ethernet LAN Card

If not, you should add it. You should be able to activate and deactivate
your network devices from "Computer: System Configuration: Networking".
If this doesn't work open a terminal and manually activate the interface

sudo ifup eth1

you can deactivate using

sudo ifdown eth1

All of this assumes that your work network is setup for dhcp.



p.s. Does your ibook sleep and wake up o.k.?
