At this point I believe that iwl is blacklisted and ipw is loaded.

This is after installing a back port then doing the iwl remove/add ipw by
and lots of etc.

I'm 30 mile away from that machine at the moment, so I can't qoute the
results from a lsmod, modprobe, etc.

One clue that I've not had time to chase is: my gateway box is an openbsd
machine running packet filtering. On occasion, when I reboot the
machine in question or possibly when I unplug the wired and do a network
I see a message on the gateway machine that says the arp
info for the ip address of the wired interface had been over written. (I
wireless set to a different ip than the wired interface.)

I think it's called Ubuntu Studio Controls. When run, it has two
check boxes; one is memory lock and the desired percentage of memory, the
is raw1394.
