From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
So far I have this problem with my latop Acer TravelMate 6000. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Restart the linux box with only ethernet(eth0) network connection. 
2. Restart again with only wireless(eth1-ipw2200-1.0.2) network connection.
3. Get "invalid MAC Address...ignoring" when machine startup
4. Check /var/log/message OR dmesg get: 
 Mar 28 10:02:48 localhost kernel: ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
Mar 28 10:02:48 localhost kernel: ipw2200: Radio Frequency Kill Switch is On:
Mar 28 10:02:48 localhost kernel: Kill switch must be turned off for wireless networking to work.

Actual Results:  This file /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2200/0000\:02\:04.0/rf_kill give me "2" instead of normal as"0"

Additional info:

Temporary solution: 
Boot with Win XP and press "enable wireless connection button" and reboot.
Everything will go back to normal.
