Intel ipw2100 - strange behaviour?
Sometimes , when I start my bt2_f i cannot airodump, there simply is no channel hopping indicating the app is not working.
A tail -10 /var/log/syslog tells me: failed bringing up the device eth0
failed loading ipw2100 firmware......
this does not happen always...
But the biggest problem is:
After i have monitored and found an open ap ( when i am lucky and the thing mentioned above did not happen) , i get no Ip, even If trying
There is an ap in my near surrounding which sometimes asoociates me and sometimes not, and then a I try to use:
iwconfig eth0 ap kk:dd:ff:dd:ss:jj.
And the message is:
SET instruction failed, input-output error.
No matter which mode my card has.
Does anyone know, where my problem my be?
THX in advance!
P.S: My laptop has an intel centrino... can i completely forget about doing something funny?
