    Hi,

    I just tested your ipw2200 firmware on my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1300,
    Debian testing=Lenny):
    - removed existing firmware in /lib/firmware
    - halted
    - boot, installed ipw2200 firmware package
    - reboot
    - firmware loaded, connection OK.

    Thank you for your package: it avoids me to keep a spare CD with the
    firmware.

    Thank you for testing it. I hope someone will be able to test ipw2100 too.

    BTW, If someone can try Lenny's Debian Installer: 1. Does it prompt for
    the license and 2. Does it reconizes the firmware?

    I'd be happy to test the ipw2100 firmware package, but unfortunately I
    had already deleted my copy of your first message in this thread,
    therefore I cannot verify your signature of the checksums of the
    package. (Unfortunately I cannot make the verification work with the
    copy in the list archive; is this possible at all?) Can you please
    confirm the checksums again?

    It's works here ( Debian Stable).
    I've tested WEP & WPA key managements, both are OK.

    Thank you for your effort!

    Same here Toshiba/Sid and Acer/Stable, both are running very well. Thank
    you!

    [ Thanks for sending me the signed checksums again off-list. ]

    I installed the ipw2100 firmware package on my Asus M2400N (after
    removing the firmware files that I had copied manually) and the wireless
    network came up without problems. I run Sid on this computer, but I hope
    that right now Sid and Lenny are similar enough so that this test is
    still useful for you.

    I also tried the firmware packages with a daily build of the Debian
    Lenny installer (USB stick image plus i386 businesscard ISO plus the two
    firmware packages). I had two test systems: My Asus for the ipw2100 and
    an Acer of a colleague for the ipw2200. (The Acer had a complete hard
    disk crash yesterday, so its owner had no problems loaning it to me for
    this experiment.) In both cases the installer detected the wireless
    device correctly, found the firmware package and brought up the network
    successfully (obtaining an IP address via DHCP, setting the clock with
    NTP and downloading the Packages file from the selected mirror).
    However, I was not asked to accept the license when the firmware was
    installed. I aborted the installer at the "partition hard drives" stage,
    so maybe the license dialog would have come up later.

    Thank you for preparing these handy packages; let me know if you want me
    to test anything else.

    Thanks to all of you who could test those packages.

    Great.

    I was expecting this behaviour. As far as ipw2100/ipw2200 licenses are
    concerned, this behaviour shouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks again,

    Franklin
