kernel 2.6.14 ipw2200 firmware

after the upgrade to latest arch stock kernel 2.6.14 i've noticed that driver for the centrino wireless card ipw2200 doesn't load.
it does not find the firmware v.2.2
kernel release of ipw2200 driver is 1.0.0

so the workaround for me has been to download the relative firmware from the sourceforge site (firmware v2.2)
http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/firmware.php
and put the files

[fabrizio@fabrizionb ~]$ tar tvfz download/ipw2200-fw-2.2.tgz

-rw-rw-r-- jketreno/jketreno  6472 2004-12-20 23:37:56 ipw-2.2-boot.fw
-rw-rw-r-- jketreno/jketreno 166960 2004-12-20 23:37:56 ipw-2.2-bss.fw

-rw-rw-r-- jketreno/jketreno 161568 2004-12-20 23:37:56 ipw-2.2-ibss.fw
-rw-rw-r-- jketreno/jketreno  16312 2004-12-20 23:37:56 ipw-2.2-ibss_ucode.fw

inside "/lib/firmware/" where you still find firmware version 2.4 related to package "ipw2200 1.0.8-1"

note that you have not need to fire hotplug daemon at startup...

Re: kernel 2.6.14 ipw2200 firmware

Do you have the ipw2200 package installed?  The firmware is included in there, but the module itself is now part of the kernel26 package.
