Are you sure it is an issue with the ipw2100 driver? This sounds more
like a  problem with NetworkManager, which does not (yet) handle
static IPs.

Also, if you don't mind me asking: why do you need a static IP so
badly? DHCP works fine for most situations.

I realize a few people have encountered installation issues with Edgy,
but in my experience once installed it is *extremely* stable. However,
it doesn't look like an upgrade would immediately solve your problems
as the ipw2100 driver is likewise listed only as source in the Edgy
