Wireless card won't connect to network

I have just installed my wireless card (Intel Corp. PRO-Wireless 2200 BG) using another forum here, worked fine. I WIRELESSLY (without any hardwire conns either) updated to kernel 2.6.18-1.2849 from kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.

After I rebooted, wireless wasn't working. used:

#chmod 744 /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2849.fc6/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200.ko

to rewrite the kernel and now I get this:

Determining IP information for eth1 (my wireless IS eth1)

then the error message:
Determining IP information for eth1... failed; no link present. Check cable?

It recognizes my eth1 as wireless AND as the right card (Intel blah blah blah)

I'm not a n00b, but seeing as I'm not guru either, so help is needed.

Much Appreciation,

Your wireless card should be wlan0 not eth1 shouldn't it? Eth1 is for cable connection.


connect, error, networking, wireless
