    Why do you think madwifi will do anything for you? Clearly you have an
    ipw2200, which uses the ipw2200 kernel module. You need to configure it.

    I don't think you want Madwifi drivers.
    Make sure you installed the ipw stuff through Yast, especially the firmware.

    I would suggest checking the intel website for the most current drivers. I am not sure if your card is affected by this problem, but the ipw drivers may not be supported by the current kernel version, shipped with opensuse.
