    I'm using an Acer Aspire 1680.
    Also the command "tazhw" is returning "unknown comand".

    Any ideas?

    the ipw2200 module is in linux-wireless, did you install it?

    and the command is  "tazwh detect-pci" and of course you must be root

    Did you install the firmware ?
    ipw2200: ipw2200-bss.fw request_firmware failed: Reason -2
    Connect to internet with ethernet:
    #subox wifibox
    Drivers tab / Firmware: ipw2200-firmware /Install
