First of all, I haven't really been able to find a good reference for how to
set up wireless networking and wpasupplicant on Debian, so if there's
something obvious out there that I've missed, I would be glad for pointers.
So on to the meat: I have been unable to get a consistently working
configuration for my ipw2200 card, on Debian sid running 2.6.18. I only have
one wireless network I ever want to connect to, so my current setup
in /etc/network/interfaces is:
auto eth0 eth1 eth2
mapping eth0 eth1 eth2
map 00:03:0D:21:5C:2E ethernet
map 00-03-0D-00-25-51-D8-36-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00 ieee
map 00:0E:35:AF:45:A6 wireless
iface ethernet inet dhcp
iface ieee inet manual
iface wireless inet dhcp
Strangely, this occasionally works, but usually I get a failure to connect.
So, what's wrong with this setup, and what do I need to do to get it working

Isn't wpasupplicant package required? Have you read the links included above?
