ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2004 Intel Corporation
ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
ipw2200: Radio Frequency Kill Switch is On:
ipw2200: Already sending a command
ipw2200: failed to send SCAN_REQUEST_EXT command
as output.

TO be honest, I have no real clue as to what I'm doing (this is day one of me using linux). How do I activate my wireless after a set it up?
You should install the latest ipw2200 driver rather than using the old one included in Ubuntu (0.19).
