Driver ipw2200 needs updating
If you’re looking for a speed boost, updating your drivers to the latest version isn’t a magical speed enhancement that will suddenly remove the need to upgrade a slow PC.
If you’re upgrading from one version of a driver to another version, chances are good that the only things included in those updates are bug fixes for specific scenarios, and maybe some very minor performance increases.
Installing version 1.1.2 of the driver solved the problem.
Switching from the built-in Windows drivers for your video card to the official NVidia or ATI/AMD drivers will make a world of difference, and keeping them updated can yield huge speed gains.
For example, to upgrade closed-source drivers on Ubuntu, you may need to go to System Settings Reboot your computer to use the new graphics driver.
Unfortunately, due to the wide range of possible driver, video card and operating system combinations, hardware acceleration or 3D web graphics (Web GL) may still not work for you in Firefox.
This driver only works on 2.6.x kernels (2.6.4 or newer).
Starting with kernels 2.6.14 the driver is included in kernel.
