thought this might help:
dmesg:
detected Intel(R) PRO/wireless 2200BG network connection
ipw-2.2-boot.fw load failed: reason-2
unable to load firmware: 0xfffffffe
failed to register network device
probe of 0000:00:1f.5 (0000->0003)

iwconfig:
lo no wireless connection
eth0 no wireless connection
sit0 no wireless connection
