Unhappy Suse 9.2 Wireless worked until update


I have just converted from Fedora Core 3 to Suse 9.2. Upon intially installing, I got the wireless card in my Thinkpad T40 working (Intel 2100). Once I ran the updater, I can't seem to get the wireless working now. The card appears in Yast, but when I do ifconfig, it doesn't even show up. When I do lsmod, I can see the ipw2100 listed.

Can someone help me out here?

All right, I'm a tool. It's official.

To resolve my problem, I had to re-apply the ipw-firmware RPM that I downloaded and applied previously (go kernel from the updates...).

Also, I found out the hard way that SSID's are case sensitive...grrrrr lol.

Thanks for looking, but I'm working wirelessly now!
