    Default Intel ipw2100 - strange behaviour?

    Hello.
    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

    dhcpcd.

    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?

    This really sounds fishy, maybe that's the reason why you weren't allowed to use it in the first place.
