> Works fine here with 1.1.0 patched (the patch that became 1.1.1, so i don't expect any difference) on a 2915. I get the expected signal levels and no noise levels, which is as I'd expect it to be.

Yes, taking cues from your Blog posting, I edited the Makefile and uncommented "CONFIG_IEEE80211_RADIOTAP=y". I couldn't find the IPW_FW_MINOR_VERSION, but since I was using the 3.0 firmware, I didn't think it mattered.
