I have this problem. Mine is ipw3945, driver version 1.1.0m, On Kubuntu
Feisty kernel v2.6.17-11 (because 2.6.20 breaks USB on my laptop). Mine
works just fine if and only if, seemingly, I boot with "Disable

do this trick again to repair it. A simple reboot with wireless left
enabled will not fix the problem. My SSID is hidden, and my auth type is
