What version of the kernel are you using? (Sorry if you've mentioned
Personally, I compile IPW2100 from source, cause I didn't realize there
was a package, and it works now, so I'm not changing anything. But I did
have some issues with it and kernel 2.6.8 behaving strangely.

now I'm not sure why but I didn't notice anything special or unique.
This is weird and quite frustrating. I would think it's a hardware

to help solve the issues, still no clue.
