This was working just fine until the Leopard 10.5.6 update a couple of days ago so I'm trying to sort out what is going on.

Black MacBook sharing out a Sprint broadband modem card.
Windows Vista Professional

Network created on the MacBook, using WEP with an 13 character password. Settings in Vista are allowing it to connect just fine (setting security to "Shared"), but it refuses to obtain anything other than "Local Only" access.

I've done everything I can think of to get this thing going again. Any ideas?
