Retry limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff

It's an intel card, so, unless the fact that it's a toshiba is screwing with it (which is very often the case) you should have just had to click on the network manager icon and pick your network. Intel cards are so very supported that they usually just work. The full model number of the computer may give us more info. All 3 of the toshiba computers Ive ever put linux on were unfortunately screwed up pieces of crap because of toshiba wanting to save money. But there was usualy a way around all the crap too.

For what it's worth, later kernels (2.6.21+ unless I'm mistaken) also include the ipw2200 (and ipw2100) firmware as a compile-in or module option. Makes things very, very easy.

Go here and get the firmware for your card, get version 3, unpack it, copy all .fw files to /lib/firmware, re-boot and configure a wireless connection.

Ah, no, he shouldnt need the firmware. I'm using a 2200BG on ubuntu 7.10. He should just have to click on network manager (or for that matter start wifi-radar) and pick his network. Unless toshiba mucked about with it.
