I have an odd issue with wget, ipkg, apt-get, XVhat, and other apps that try to access the net. Many times they'll fail to find the site they're trying to access and assume it's IP is, then time out. It works much more often, if not almost always, over my desktop's wired connection, making me believe that it's a wireless thing.

Any ideas? This is getting really annoying.

I don't know how to fix it, but it sounds like a problem either with DHCP (ie getting your IP) or getting a nameserver (usually also assigned over DHCP when using WiFi). The only thing I would suggest is confirming the right WiFi settings and ejecting/reinserting the card, but I'm sure you've already tried that.
Basically you'll have to wait for someone better at this than me (which is most people) to help you out.

The nameserver used is located in /etc/resolv.conf, but I'm not sure how that gets assigned in pdaXrom.
