Subject:ipw2200 driver in the 2.6.16.16 kernel
Date:11:03:06 25/05/2006

I've been successfully using the ipw2200 drivers from sourceforge for a long time. I remember having some trouble with the ipw2200 driver which came with the kernel in the past. This last time around when installing 2.6.16.16 kernel I thought I'd give it a try again and compiled it in. According to the README it should be version 1.0.8 which I have successfully used with Kismet in the past. According to the README it supports monitor mode, however this kernel driver does _not_ support monitor mode and kismet won't work with it.

What gives? Are they purposely distributing a neutered driver with the kernel sources? If I download the driver from sf.net and paste it into my kernel tree will that work?
