I'm at my wits end here. I'm trying to configure my laptop (Thinkpad
T41) to talk to my wifi router (Belkin High-Speed Mode Wireless G
Router) using Fedora Core 5. My laptop uses the Intel Pro Wireless
2100, so I installed the ipw2100 firmware and kernel module from
From what I've read on the electric interweb, my setup *should* work.
But I can't get the wlan to associate.
Here's what iwlist reports, when it detects my ssid:

And here's what iwconfig reports:
