    Fedora Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG connection failed


    Ey there.
    I'm using Fedora 6 kernel v. 2.6.20-1.2933. I have some problems brining up my wireless connection (eth1).


    From pmesg:
    ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.0kmprq
    ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation

    ieee1394: Host added: ID:BUS[0-00:1023] GUID[00030d49255ace06]

    If I do service network restart, then I get this output:
    SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device
    Bringing up loopback interface: [ OK ]
    Bringing up interface eth0:
    Determining IP information for eth0... done.
    Bringing up interface eth1:
    Determining IP information for eth1... failed; no link present. Check cable

    First of all, SIOCGIFFLAGS - Last time my eth1 was up running, it wasent there.

    From lsmod:
    ipw2200 142633 0
    ieee80211 35209 1 ipw2200

    From iwconfig:
    eth1 unassociated ESSID:off/any Nickname:"Lemint"
