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 
before ;)
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?
