    Default wireless is not working after upgrading to 2.6.34

    i just upgraded my bt4final from kernel to 2.6.34 , and everything is running smoothly except the wireless function.
    the system startup process shows detection of INTEL PRO/WIRELESS 220BG but unable to
    load IPW2200 firmware.

    dmesg | grep ipw :

    ipw2200: intel PRO/WIRELESS 2200/2915 network driver, 1.2.2kmprq
    ipw2200: 0000:06:04.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> irq 17
    ipw2200: detected INTEL PRO/WIRELESS 2200BG network connection
    ipw2200: 0000:06:04.0: firmware: requesting ipw2200-bss.fw
    ipw2200: ipw2200-bss.fw request_firmware failed: Reason -2
    ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: -2
    ipw2200: failed to register network device
    ipw2200: 0000:06:04.0: PCI INT A disabled
    ipw2200: probe of 0000:06:04.0 failed with error -5

    i spent 2 days GOOGLing for a solution but no luck
    any 1 had this problem ?
    how to solve it ?

    thanx in advance

    I have reported this to the rest of the dev team and it is a known issue, so a new package to fix this will with any luck hit the repo in a few days.
