wireless PC Card died

This afternoon, the power went out at work.  I think that something during this outage caused my 802.11g PC card to get fried.  When I got home, the card wasn't recognized at all.  I rebooted without the card installed, and was able to use the built-in 802.11b card.

Unfortunately, this means that when I do large file transfers, things will be a lot slower.  I guess I will just plug into the wired network for these transfers. But I have noticed that it seems that the battery is lasting longer without the card installed.

Yet another reason to get that MacBook Pro.
