WLAN stopped working

WLAN stopped working for me after the last update (ipw2200 update to v1.0.1) because I used the interface name wlan0. The module parameter ifname is _not_ supported anymore. On the Gentoo Forums I found a solution: use the following line in your /etc/iftab : echo ‘ mac xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx’ >> /etc/iftab. Haven’t tested it. In the same forum thread there’s also a solution for udev.
P.S.: I’m going to add this page to my blog at www.philsown.de
