well, this was the second 'led doesn't work'-post in this thread. don't
see the issue. furthermore i tried iwl first time today - sorry for not
searching the hole net if someone else mentioned the non working led
please don't take it personal, that i would like to have my hardware
working the way it's supposed to..didn't know i have explain myself
cause i would like to have a working led insetad of using iwconfig or
whatever. there is always a workaround..

well.. ok. but i think there is nothing bad in just telling about the
differences when changing from ipw to iwl. this was the initial
intention of this thread i guess.
anyhow there was a second question (about kismet), maybe this gives my
post a right to exist?
