I don't recall seeing anything like these
in /var/log/messages on that notebook.

The day before I was trying to use the WiFi
network connection, we had this notebook on a
wired network connections using the same D-Link
hub/wireless AP/router using dhclient.
That wired fxp(4) connection was rock-solid for hours,
while the wireless wi(4) wouldn't last for
more than an hour (usually much less).
