on boot I get the following messages:
... ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL' ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, git-1.1.13 ieee80211: Copyright (C) 2004-2005 Intel Corporation <email@example.com> ipw2100: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Driver, git-1.2.2 ipw2100: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKE] enabled at IRQ 11 PCI: setting IRQ 11 as level-triggered ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:04.0[A] -> Link [LNKE] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11 ipw2100: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection ieee1394: Host added: ID:BUS[0-00:1023] GUID[00c09f0000100dd5] ipw2100: eth1: Firmware 'ipw2100-1.3.fw' not available or load failed. ipw2100: eth1: ipw2100_get_firmware failed: -2 ipw2100: eth1: Failed to power on the adapter. ipw2100: eth1: Failed to start the firmware. ipw2100Error calling register_netdev. ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:02:04.0 disabled ipw2100: probe of 0000:02:04.0 failed with error -5 ...
But when I unload and again load ipw2100, after I logged in, wlan is working.
Stange thing is that I put the modules in MOD_BLACKLIST in rc.conf:
... MOD_BLACKLIST=(pcspkr ipw2100 ieee80211 ieee80211_crypt) ...
Nevertheless the modules are loaded on boot (if my interpretation of the output is right...).
So my actual question is: How can I disable the loading of ipw2100 on boot?
Thanks for any help.

Of course I have the firmware installed, how should wlan work without it? Oo
pacman -Qi ipw2100-fw:

This looks very much like an error to me though?
Is the firmware located in /lib/firmware?
Yes firmware is there:

Is it possible to disable the loading of ipw2100 on bootup?
Omg, I found out why the module ipw2100 was loaded on bootup:
it was in my mkinitcpio.conf ...
