configuring wire less on fc6
While trying to activate my wireless on my box, I am getting the follwoing error message.
ipw2200 device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
can not activate network device eth1!
I am getting the following from lspci command

The following is there in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf file
desc: "Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection"
This shows ipw2200 driver is installed on the system..
Please suggest me what is the problem and how to enable the wire-less.
The IPW2200 driver is part of the Linux kernel, so therefor it is installed by default.
You simply need to install the firmware in /lib/firmware/: download the latest one (v3.0) from here and extract it in /lib/firmware/
