Update: I have been busy chasing down yet another wireless bug related to my Linux laptop and the Intel 2915 wireless driver/firmware. Frustrating, and yet educational. (For those who take joy in my travails, check out this thread).
There is a positive side to this. I’m reaquainting myself with the linux networking configuration files. Also, I have decided henceforth to keep a fairly detailed chart (er, well, list) of the information I gain along the way. There’s a lot of good information on the forums, although it’s so scattered that no one really has a sense of where everything is. It’s not so much documentation as notetaking. (When I gather enough information, I’ll post it on my weblog).
