Confirming this bug.
Hardware: IBM X40, ipw2200 wireless.

The problem occurred after updating from release 0.3.3-1.cvs20050119 to
0.3.4-1.1.0 in fedora core 3.

I think this was working on an atheros based wireless card I was trying to get
working the other day. I do remember thinking "hey, it shows signal strengt with
this card", and I think it was before I tried downgrading NM to get around the
"F... you. your dhcp server is sending on a wrong udp port" message.

only the latest ipw2200 & ipw2100 drivers actually provide usable strength... 
Can you try with one of those and see how it works?

Comment 5 jim 2005-05-05 21:38:14 UTC
drivers I am using

meter in sustem tray shows strength 
but actual wireless network show none 

Comment 6 Dan Williams 2005-05-16 19:58:37 UTC
Yeah, the scanning code that does strength is different than the code that gets
the _current_ connection strength.  This is a driver issue in ipw2200, and may
already be fixed with later versions of the driver...

I'm fairly sure ipw2200-1.0.3 will work.
