Public bug reported:

Affects: linux-meta (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6-686

After the last (automatic, security) update of 28 April 2006, wifi
(ipw2200) stopped working. In Network Settings (Gnome) the wireless
option is not visible anymore. Reinstall of ipw2200 drivers (according
to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=26623) did not help. The
only thing that solved the problem was a downgrade from 2.6.12-10 to

I guess that this is a 2.6.12-10 kernel compilation bug.
