Need Help with Intel 2200bg card on Mandrake 10.2 (2005 LE)
this is my first post on here, but please rest assured that i've scoured the net for 3 days trying to find help on this. in fact, i've found several supposed fixes for this problem -- none seem to help though. it might be that i am too noob to do them properly, or that i screwed something up royally.
anyway, here is what's going on. i have a laptop that is dual booting winxp pro and mandrake 10.2 (2005 le). it is a 1.8ghz centrino with an intel wireless 2200bg card. all of my hardware seems to be detected perfectly except the wireless card.
in my 3rdparty folder there was an ipw2200 folder but some instructions from http://ipw2200.sf.net told me to get rid of that crap and install theirs. that didn't work either. i have also tried the ndiswrapper to use my winxp (and the win2k after that didn't work) inf's. i also tried using driverloader, from http://www.linuxant.com, but i didn't quite understand what was going on with that either.
i'm really, REALLY trying to ditch windows but if i can't get my wireless card working, i probably can't make the switch. if anyone has any help for a total n00b i would be really grateful
