    Unhappy Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG story just keeps getting worse

    I am hoping it is not just me. But, my wireless woes keep getting worse.

    It started around Alpha 5 when wireless connection was spotty and would disconnect randomly. Wireless would not connect if I was too far away from the router, but once established, I could move away. Now it is at a point where wireless connection is not established at all. Even when the laptop is right next to the router (99% signal strength as indicated in nm-tool output attached).

    I have opened a bug on launchpad (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/450097), but it hasn't received much attention!

    Here's the lspci output pertaining to the wireless hardware:

    Code:
    02:0b.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)
    	Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 2751

    		Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=1 PME-
    	Kernel driver in use: ipw2200
    	Kernel modules: ipw2200
    Attached are outputs of nm-tool and iwevent/daemon logs when the wireless connection fails. The access point I am trying to connect to is 'chord' (00:0D:88:BC:47:B9). It uses WPA2 Personal security and SSID broadcast is disabled. It is a D-Link DI-624 wireless router.

    I am wondering if anyone else with similar hardware is running into these issues or can help me with mine. TIA.

    Is there a good way to isolate router issues? My router is pretty old. However, a Mac connects to it over wireless too. The Mac's wireless connection is not completely without issues, but it connects and works most of the time.

    I tried Jolicloud LiveCD on this laptop I am having issues with - and it connected just fine. That leads me to believe that both router and laptop's wireless hardware are in good shape.

    My 2200BG is working fine, I'm not hiding my SSID though and I am connecting to a Netgear WGR614.

    Thanks for confirming that.

    I should probably play with the router wireless settings. May be try out a new router.

    It still bothers me that Jolicloud could connect to the same network, with the same hardware, effortlessly, but not Karmic. I am sure Jaunty will too - I am going to try that soon.
