[driverloader] Problem with AOPEN 1557 and Intel 2200bg

I got a new AOPEN 1557 Centrino portable with a Intel 2200bg wlan interface. 
Distro used is SuSE 9.1 Pro with kernel 2.6.5-7.104-default.
Switching kernel is not realy an option as the PC is maintained in a corporate 
environment. (Likes to standardize)

I have tried to install the driverloader and the windows driver and I did not 
get any errors on that.  The driver version used id 2.06 for Driverloader and 
Intel "01/02/2004," that came with the Notebook.

This is what I get in the log:
Sep  1 12:59:09 TWS1054 kernel: driverloader: module license 'see LICENSE 
file; Copyright (c)2003-2004 Linuxant inc.' taints kernel.
Sep  1 12:59:09 TWS1054 kernel: driverloader: stack=8192/56/1 REGPARM
Sep  1 12:59:09 TWS1054 kernel: usbcore: registered new driver driverloader
Sep  1 12:59:09 TWS1054 kernel: driverloader: probe of 0000:02:06.0 failed 
with error -5

The card is working correctly under WinXP. One thing I have noticed is that 
there does not seem to happen anything when I push the wlan button. No light 
in the wlan display led. From what I have read at the rwfswitch web site , 
the 1557 should have a hw switch.

Anyone having success with this chipset?
