Description Bill Nottingham 2004-04-08 22:57:02 EDT
2.6.5-1.308

Suspend with ACPI, and then resume.

1) it resumes. Yay. :)

2) the airo driver is now very confused.

Anything, from running 'ifconfig' to 'rmmod airo', to 'iwconfig',
yields kernel messages like:

Apr  8 22:50:57 nostromo kernel: airo: cmd= 21
Apr  8 22:50:57 nostromo kernel: airo: status= 7f21
Apr  8 22:50:57 nostromo kernel: airo: Rsp0= 21
Apr  8 22:50:57 nostromo kernel: airo: Rsp1= ff11
Apr  8 22:50:57 nostromo kernel: airo: Rsp2= 22

and none of them work. The packet counters are all exceedingly random,
and exceedingly large.

I'm getting this same error without suspending.  The network just seems to go
down after some usage and then I need to reboot in order to get wireless back. 
I'll attach the log data.

Bill:

Your specific command response (status & 0x7f00 means "error", Rsp0 is the error
code, AFAICT) means "Descriptor Unavailable".  I'm fairly sure the module needs
to put the hardware to sleep and then wake it back up, which it's probably not
doing.

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-10-05 19:48:56 EDT
is this any better these days ?
It's been a while, so the optimist in me is hoping..
Comment 6 Dan Williams 2005-10-06 11:25:13 EDT
A lot of bugs with Airo cards dropping out like this were found to be firmware
related.  If you update the firmware to something like 5.60.08 (which I've done
for a few people in desktop) most problems like this will go away...

Feel free to close as appropriate, I'd say its a firmware issue. 
5.00.03/5.00.02 is known to not work very well at all.

I threw out the airo for ipw2200 a long time ago. Things work much better now. :)
