IPW2200 firmware suddenly not loading?


I'm running Fedora 6, kernel 2.6.20-1.2933.fc6.
The ipw2200 driver I'm using is 1.2.0, and I'm using the ipw2200 firmware 3.0.

My wireless had been running fine for a few weeks, and then all of a sudden, the firmware stops loading, and I can't bring up my wireless device anymore.

This is the result I'm getting:

ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.0kmprq
ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation
ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
ipw2200: Unable to load ucode: -62
ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: -62
ipw2200: failed to register network device
ipw2200: probe of 0000:02:01.0 failed with error -5

It was weird b/c up to tonight, it never had a problem. I tried re-downloading the firmware into /lib/firmware, and reloading the module, and I rebooted a few times, to no avail.

Can this possibly be due to some update I received that messed up the hotplug feature?
Thanks for any help!

Look to see if the device is still listed under system ->administration ->network with the correct name, i.e. eth1 or ??? It could also mean that the mini pci module went belly up.....

Hi, thanks for your response.
Well, it's working now, no problems. I didn't even do anything, other than booting to windows to see if the wireless device was even working. I guess it really just didn't want to load last night. Anyway, thanks again.
