    Default Re: wireless problem after updating

    I found another solution. I have an internal intel 2200abg card, and a external Atheros card that I wanted to use at the same time.

    On bootup I noticed the error ipw2200: ipw2200-bss.fw request_firmware failed: Reason -2

    It seems the package firmware-ipw isn't actually installed correctly, or at all maybe? you can go into synaptic and re-install it though. It doesn't install the firmware to the correct folder though, so you've got to cp it.

    It installs the ipw-bss.fw and other needed files into /lib/firmware-2.6.34/ instead it needs to be installed into /lib/firmware/

    To make it short ...

    1. Re install package 'firmware-ipw' in synaptic

    2. 'cp -v /lib/firmware-2.6.34/ipw* /lib/firmware/'

    Now I can use my intel card to connect to an AP, and use my Atheros for 'other' uses ...

    You had done anything more that install that ucode because backtrack had it lot of time ago. Maybe you hit/enable wireless keyboard button/switch?

    Im surprised you had an issue with that driver tho. I have the same wireless NIC and no issues from the upgrade.

    Just glad you resolved the issue
