Description Sam W. 2008-01-23 17:17:12 EST
Description of problem:

On a clean install of F8 on a Dell Latitude D600, neither IPW2200 nor IPW2915
cards will associate with an AP.  Syslog shows: "ipw2200: 
Failed to send SYSTEM_CONFIG: Already sending a command."  Rebooting/cold boots
don't help.  Tried swapping cards (as above).  Same hardware works fine under FC6.

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

as reported in syslog: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.2kmprq

How reproducible:

Reassigning to the kernel since I doubt this is firmware package related...
Comment 2 John W. Linville 2008-02-04 10:16:12 EST
Which kernel version are you using?  Does updating to the latest available F8 
kernel change the situation?

I was using kernel  More data once I try the newest kernel...
Comment 5 Sam W. 2008-02-05 04:07:01 EST
the latest kernel ( does NOT fix things.  FWIW, all works well
using Fedora 7 ( as well as 6.

Another symptom, for clarity: trying to set a WEP key results in the same error
log, and the key doesn't get set (iwconfig reports no key).
Comment 6 Sam W. 2008-02-12 17:29:35 EST
And now it's working for me (with kernel  Maybe it was the
new kernel and I just goofed in the testing?

I'll leave this open just in case someone does reproduce the problem, but feel
free to close it if you like.
Comment 7 John W. Linville 2008-02-14 13:54:28 EST
I'm going to go ahead and close this, please reopen if someone can reproduce 
it on current kernels...thanks!
