  I understand it and have already posted a bug report to the ipw2100 
team. If there's someone willing to do something about the bug, I'll 
happily provide them as much feedback as I can.
  It really sucks that vendors like Intel or IBM do not bother to 
provide drivers for Linux... Thanks God that ping -i 1 effectively keeps 
the link alive, otherwise I'd end up either using Window$ or runing 
around the flat with patchcords...
