How to make Intel wireless adapter work in Mandriva Linux 2007
I just installed Mandriva Linux Version 2007 on my HP nx6110 laptop and it is working great. However I cannot get my wireless adapter to work. Its a Intel wireless adapter and if I go to Wireless Connections through control center, I can see my wireless adapter "Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG" in the list, but at the same time a error pops up saying
"Some packages (ipw2200-firmware) are required but aren't available.These packages can be found in Mandriva Club or in Mandriva commercial releases.
due to missing /lib/firmware/ipw2200-*.fw
The required files can also be installed from this URL:
i downloaded the firmware as mentioned in this link but have no idea what to do next since I am working on Linux for the first time today..
Please guide me with the steps on how to make my wireless adapter work under linux. All help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance
