    Linux not recognizing internal wireless card.


    Hello, I have an unusual situation: After installing Dream Linux 2.2 (Debian-based) I have discoverd that under network adapters, there are now 2 ethernet cards, instead of one ethernet and one internal wireless card (Intel 2200). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Some distros call the wire less eth1. This is OK and should work fine.

    To see which one is the wireless, run this command.
    Code:
    iwconfig
    You also need firmware for this card to work.
    Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Driver Firmware

    Put the firmware in the /lib/firmware folder.
