[driverloader] Unable to associate, using Intel 2200BG

we can see the following warning message in the output of the 'iwconfig' 
command :

Warning: Driver for device eth1 has been compiled with version 16
of Wireless Extension, while this program is using version 15.
Some things may be broken...

Please try to upgrade your 'wireless-tools' package and try again. If it 
doesn't fix the problem, we can also see these messages in your 'dmesg' :

driverloader: stack=8192/1448/0
dldr_thread: 1623 stack overflow

It seems that you are using a custom kernel and the 'task_struct' on your 
kernel is rather large (1448 bytes). Since the 'task_struct' takes a large 
amount of sthe stack and that the Intel Centrino Windows driver is known to 
take a lot of stack space, the problem might be a stack overflow problem and 
the second error message seems to point in this direction.

If you have compiled your kernel with additional patches, please try to 
recompile your kernel without these patches. If you recompile your kernel, 
please also recompile the DriverLoader module with the 'dldrconfig --kernel' 
command in a root shell.

You could also try with a fresh 2.6.6 kernel from 'http://www.kernel.org' to 
see if there is a difference.
