Wireless problems, orinoco chipset


I am having a little dificulty setting up my wireless network under Debian woody kernel 2.4.18bf (Ithink!)

when i run iwconfig i get this reply:

Warning: Driver for device eth1 has been compiled with version 12
of Wireless Extension, while this program is using version 15.
Some things may be broken...

eth1      IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:""  Nickname:"HERMES I"
         Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.422GHz  Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
         Bit Rate:11Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm   Sensitivity:1/3
         Retry limit:4   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
         Encryption key:off
         Power Management:off
         Link Quality:0/92  Signal level:134/153  Noise level:134/153
         Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
         Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
whatever is broken is stopping me from putting in my ESSID, not sure about other things, I know i can still set my Mode.

how do I go about changing the driver for version 15? or vice versa, how do I go about changing iwconfig back to version 12?
