Garret. on my 1st generation centrino (means ipw2100) i've removed any
occurrence of any others NIC aside from the ethernet cabled one. Of
course i have up and running ipw2100 firmware and wpa_supplicant.

Then simply using NetworkManager {enabling ESSID broadcast & DHCP} i
_can_ connect using WEP or WPA.

Still don't know "the why & the because" :-/
