Hi, first off if this isn't the best place to ask for help please redirect me.
I am using the ipw2200-ap driver on a IXP425 platform. I am having some problems with my windows XP laptop, I can see the SSID of the ipw2200, but when I click on it I cannot connect to it. I am not running any security at all. One thing I saw that was curious is the output of iwconfig eth2
eth2 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"HD-STAREAST-AP1"
Mode:Master Channel:11 Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
Bit Rate:0kb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
Also, if i leave the driver up for a while I see this error.

ip link set eth2 up!
still get the firmware errors but there is a bug in bughost on that...
I encounter the same problem now. I have loaded all the drivers and firmwares to a ixp425 platform. The linux is ucLinux 2.6.12.
Who can tell me how to make my board work as an AP? Many thanks!
