In /var/log/messages it says it is skipping all (?) channels as Tx
only. iwconfig says wlan0 isn't associated, "iwlist wlan0 scan" warns it is
version 20 while the driver is version 22 of wireless extensions, and that
the network is down (wireless-tools-28-1.fc6, clearly out of date).

As a result, I'm using vanilla kernel + ipw3945 driver + ipw3945d to use
