If these problems started happening when you started running with a PCMCIA wireless card, I would try to boot the cp without the card installed, if it is booting alright it probably would be an issue with the drivers for the card.
Second, and I have seen this at work, when booting with the wireless adapters activated, it seems to take forever for the laptops to boot up and get to the logon screen. (Up to and over 5 min sometimes) Seems that it does not pick up the wireless access points right away or keeps scanning to see how many are available.
If you can get it to boot correctly, go into the network connections, disable the wireless card, reboot and see if it is making any difference. I do suspect that it might be your drivers. Hope this helps.
