Re: Re: ipw2200 recognized as wired connection

Thanks, but ...

I do not load ipw2200 on system start to save battery power. Does my
wireless card spend battery if ipw2200 is not connected?

one more question.... sorry for repeating ...
why do I don't see VPN menu when I left/right click on the icon in tray?

I have openvpn and vpnc installed ...

Thanks a lot one more time.

Ensure that (a) your kernel does hotplug correctly, slackware may not do
this right, and that (b) you load ipw2200 by default on startup.

In most distributions, the kernel should load the ipw2200 module when it
sees the ipw2200 device, and send hotplug events to userspace, which are
handled by udev, which then notifies HAL.

You'd probably get better answers about Slackware specifically from
slackware forums or mailing lists.
