ifconfig -a shows eth0 as an ethernet interface. And iwconfig shows eth0 as having "no wireless extensions".

hrm, so that means eth1 is not being created when you do a modprobe ipw2200 AND it's not throwing any errors...

You might want to check dmesg after you do the modprobe, it'll give you more information on what's happening when you try to add the module.

About the firmware, there are many of them, each one for different versions of the driver. I don't know if there are any difficulties with using a mismatched firmware/driver combination.

This might not be the best way to solve your problem, but try using the latest driver/firmware available (remove the ones you currently have by using the upgrade script included in the driver source).

Okay the dmesg says:

ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
ipw2200: Error allocating IRQ 18
ipw2200: probe of 0000:06:06.0 failed with error -22

I'm not sure what this means and have no idea on how or fix it or whats causing it.

could be that something else is using IRQ18, or that the firmware doesn't know how to allocate IRQ18, or your kernel doesn't know how to give IRQ18 to your driver.

check the other messages in dmesg, and /var/log/syslog. It'll sometimes suggest fixes.

The system log show the same stuff the dmesg shows. Although the dmesg shows other error which could be a part of the problem. Here's what it says:

Code:

input: PC Speaker as /class/input/input2
input: ImPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /class/input/input3
lp: driver loaded but no devices found
Capability LSM initialized
On a side note, how do you get rid of that annoying beep everytime you reboot?

well you've got more than one IRQ that is failing to allocate

ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1e.2[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
unable to grab IRQ 17
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:1e.2 disabled
Intel ICH: probe of 0000:00:1e.2 failed with error -16

ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:06:06.0[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
ipw2200: Error allocating IRQ 18
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:06:06.0 disabled
ipw2200: probe of 0000:06:06.0 failed with error -22

What laptop or motherboard are you using ?

If you go into the BIOS is there a IRQ reset or irq control by OS or some option like that you could reset or try another value for ? Maybe just resetting to default values if that doesn't work.

Yes, check, maybe reset your bios and also see if there is an updated bios available for your laptop.

But careful, flashing a bios can be dangerous and can kill your laptop if gone wrong.

Also disconnect any peripherals and pull cards from pcmcia slots, I've seen those sometime conflict with other devices in a laptop.
Sometime there is just no solution if the laptop is from a crappy manufacturer.
