HTH.

Thank you. Let me just see whether I get this straight:
Bug 113446 is marked as a duplicate of 112915, and 112915 is said to be resolvable through making sure that in line 236 of /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules, the name of the firmware loader script must be corrected to /sbin/udev.firmware.sh. Both bugs are marked as resolved.

However, the name of the firmware loader *is* already set to /sbin/udev.firmware.sh in my system, so this can't be the culprit.

I followed pertinent advice on the ipw2200 sourceforge site and increased the timeout value in /sys/class/firmware/timeout to 100, but this didn't help either. Firmware just doesn't get loaded.

Any further suggestions?

Thanks,

Birgit
