I have ipw2200 wireless Ethernet. Sometimes the binary blob looses its
marbles. I've found it useful to stop NetworkManager (NM), remove the
blob, re-insert it, then start NM up again.

service NetworkManager stop ; service NetworkManagerDispatcher stop
rmmod ipw2200 ; modprobe ipw2200
service NetworkManager start ; service NetworkManagerDispatcher start
