Apologies - you're right. The wireless connection is Intel, the cabled
connection is Broadcom.
My laptop has a broadcom chip (can't use the ipw2200
care because it's an AMD, grr)
Really? The ipw2200 driver doesn't work on AMD? I hadn't heard that.
I thought it was weird also. The laptop is a Compaq Presario. It
has an Athlon chipset. If you put the ipw2200 in it won't get
past the BIOS check. It comes back with an unrecognized wireless
card and requests it be removed.
