That might have, but I'm afraid it doesn't work here. Anyway thanks for your

03:03.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG MiniPCI
Adapter (rev 05)

Added "options ipw2200 led=1" to /etc/modprobe.conf, re-loaded module
ipw2200, turned wifi on/off several times, but still no light.

`cat /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:03:03.0` shows 1.

I've just noticed that I can't switch it off w/ Fn+F2 anymore, I wonder if
that's like that for a long time.. `modinf ipw2200` will always shows it as
radio=on and the network manager gnome-applet shows wifi networks. Strange,
IIRC I could turn it off w/ previous kernels. At least it works, that's the
main point! I'll see how it goes after a reboot.
