Comment 10 for bug 55780

Here's a fix for this problem that works for me on Dell Inspiron 9300 with Ubuntu 7.04.

Enter the following command:

touch /etc/modprobe.d/ipw2200 && echo options ipw2200 led=1 > /etc/modprobe.d/ipw2200

This adds a file at /etc/modprobe.d/ipw2200 with the contents "options ipw2200 led=1". The indicator light should now turn on and off along with the Bluetooth indicator light.
