still...problem with ipw2200
dear all brothers and sisters,
i have really gone through a hundreds of web pages and see lots and lots descriptions about how to configure the ipw220 in mandriva, but still........i couldnt yet get my card works......
Intel Wireless PRO 2200BG
wht i have tried on:
1. install the subsystem ieee80211
2. install the latest driver (1.2.0) from ipw2200.sf.net
3. install the latest firmware (3.0) also from ipw2200.sf.net/firmware
p.s. should i unzip it to /lib/firmware or /lib/hotplug/firmware ???
4. config it in control center....didnt work, it prompts that couldnt find a interface by that firmware
i have also tried on using the ndiswrapper, didnt work also.......
i couldnt find my eth1 shown on the iwconfig until i "modprobe ipw2200" though i dont know whts the meaning of that command
when i see the dmesg as root, this about ipw2200
