I can't explain it, but I may have a less drastic work-around. I had a
similar glitch yesterday. I rmmoded the ipw2200 driver, and modprobed
it. It's been fine since.
I do have a lot of this:
Mar 1 20:25:51 dragon kernel: ipw2200: Firmware error detected. Restarting.
Mar 1 20:25:51 dragon kernel: ipw2200: Sysfs 'error' log already exists.
Mar 1 20:44:22 dragon kernel: ipw2200: Firmware error detected. Restarting.
Mar 1 20:44:22 dragon kernel: ipw2200: Sysfs 'error' log already exists.
I wonder if it's related to suspending to memory a lot.
I don't think so. It appears to be a driver or firmware issue. As a
workaround, try adding
options ipw2200 hwcrypto=0
to /etc/modprobe.conf. It seems to drastically reduce the number of these
If you are bold and want to try the latest drivers (which may fix the
porblem), see http://www.ces.clemson.edu/linux/fc2-ipw2200.shtml.
