On a Dell latitude D810 with an ipw2200, yep problems with the new
2.6.9-42.0.2.EL kernel and the new 2.6.9-42.0.2.plus.c4 centosplus kernel
and the new 2.4 ipw firmware installed.
An old 2.6.9-34.107.plus centosplus kernel works fine but this uses the
earlier 2.2 ipw firmware.
I'm using the centosplus kernels to get firewire working but that's
another matter ;-)

I've installed the new 2.4 firmware. Left the old stuff there, for the old
kernel, maybe that's the problem. Anyway when I boot with the new kernels
the network takes a long time, 10's of seconds, to start. Then it
generally works for a time, 5 to 10 minutes, then stops dead!!!
Using "dmesg | grep ipw" the wireless card is detected Ok but then there
is an error
Unknown notification: subtype=40,flags=0xa0,size=40
I'm going to have a look at this when I get home tonight.
