Argh.. I wish I had had time to test this when it was in test channel.
The package does not seem to work anymore with ipw2200 cards for me.

The first problem seemed to be that /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant got
changed to a newer 'default' setting. I changed them to what looked
correct for the box:


This caused the driver to fault out faster when trying to connect to
the WPA network I have. I tried changing it to what the man page
listed (ipw) but that is not available any more in the driver. I had
not changed any other file in the past because NetworkManager had
handled it.. however that does not seem to work in this setup :/
