ipw2200: Already sending a command
Last modified: 2008-02-14 13:54:47 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
Steps to Reproduce:
Reassigning to the kernel since I doubt this is firmware package related...
Which kernel version are you using? Does updating to the latest available F8
kernel change the situation?
*** Bug 431007 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I was using kernel 188.8.131.52-85.fc8. More data once I try the newest kernel...
the latest kernel (184.108.40.206-107.fc8) does NOT fix things. FWIW, all works well
using Fedora 7 (220.127.116.11-64.fc7) 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).
And now it's working for me (with kernel 18.104.22.168-107.fc8). 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.
I'm going to go ahead and close this, please reopen if someone can reproduce
it on current kernels...thanks!
