Are you able to put your ibook to sleep and awake again? I have a
problem with that.
I was able to get my wireless working by adding the following lines to
/etc/network/interfaces file. I am assuming your are using dhcp
# Wireless interface
iface eth1 inet dhcp
pre-up modprobe airport
post-down rmmod airport
post-down rmmod orinoco
post-down rmmod hermes
I also commented out the following so that ethernet would not attempt
to connect on boot up.
I was not able to use the gnome network manager to turn them on/off.
I had to use the following commands as root (i.e. create root shell
with "sudo -s") to turn on either ethernet:
# ifup eth0
or airport card
# ifup eth1
to turn them off use
# ifdown eth0
# ifdown eth1
whichever is appropriate.
Hope this helps.
