Wireless problems with FC7

I've recently installed FC7 on my inspiron 6000. Everything works fine with the exception of my wireless NIC ( which is an Intel Pro 2200). On boot up I get the following error messages from dmesg:

ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready

And the output from iwlist eth1 scanning

[root@localhost firmware]# iwlist eth1 scanning
eth1 No scan results

I've installed the latest firmware and device driver for ipw2200. but all to no avail. Please help

contents of /lib/firmware.

[root@localhost firmware]# ls
ipw2100-1.3.fw ipw-2.4-boot.fw ipw-2.4-sniffer_ucode.fw
ipw2100-1.3-i.fw ipw-2.4-bss.fw iwlwifi-3945.ucode
ipw2100-1.3-p.fw ipw-2.4-bss_ucode.fw LICENSE.ipw2100
ipw2200-bss.fw ipw-2.4-ibss.fw LICENSE.ipw2200
ipw2200-ibss.fw ipw-2.4-ibss_ucode.fw LICENSE.ipw2200-fw
ipw2200-sniffer.fw ipw-2.4-sniffer.fw zd1211

The output of lsmod
[root@localhost firmware]# lsmod | grep ipw
ipw2200 167496 0
ieee80211 46060 1 ipw2200
