I had some private exchanges with another Fedora user - who suggested
that the driver for this card may not support changing sens!

I tested a different laptop with different wireless card:

03:03.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG
[Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)

[[email protected] ~]# lsmod|grep ipw
ipw2200               116546  0
libipw                 21037  1 ipw2200
cfg80211              110951  2 ipw2200,libipw
lib80211                4107  3 lib80211_crypt_ccmp,ipw2200,libipw

For that laptop I can change the value of sens!

So I suppose that for the netbook it will not be possible to achieve
what I needed and only if the driver supports the sens value - I
really wish this was easier information to find!
