    Configuring Wireless network


    Hi everybody

    I've redhat enterprise 5 and I want to connect to internet by using the wireless. But I can't connect to my wireless network. im using HP Pavilion DV5 And my wireless card
    called "Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection". I think the red hat found the drivers but i still can't connect . there isn't a way to see a list of all the wireless networks that i can connect to and just hit connect ?.

    I really need your help. Thanks

    You need firmware for the card.

    Enable the rpmforge repo.
    RPMforge/Using - RPMRepo Wiki

    Then do as root
    Code:
    yum install iwl5000-firmware
    modprobe -r iwlagn; modprobe iwlagn

    Thanks reed for your reply.

    I tried to implement as you told me so I started to get to this website pmrepo.org/RPMforge/Using]RPMforge/Using - RPMRepo Wiki


    when I execute the command wget with the rest of link, it gave me this result with error
    Code:
    # wget rest of the website here
    --2010-04-21 03:39:54--  
    Resolving packages.sw.be... failed: Name or service not known.
    wget: unable to resolve host address `packages.sw.be'
    Sorry I omitted http because this website doesn't allow me to mention http in my post because I'm juniour member so I didn't make any mistake in writing the command.
    So what should I do. Another question what is the purpose of this rpm?

    Thanks a lot for your cooperation

    I suspect you're using the wrong link. Are you running 32 bit or 64 bit?

    32 bit, do
    Code:
    wget http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
    64 bit
    Code:
    wget http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
    I checked and both links are valid.

    What this is doing is enabling the rpmfusion software repository.

    The firmware has some licensing restrictions and the official RHEL repos don't provide the package. rpmfusion is a 3rd party, but well trusted repository, that has various non-free software that otherwise can't be distributed.

    thanks dear reed for your help.

    Actually I tried to do what you gave me and I made a mistake because I took the first link that ended with .arch. Anyway, now I think it's okay with me.

    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# wget packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
    --2010-04-23 18:35:54--  packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

    Now when I executed this command "yum install iwl5000-firmware"
    it gave me that no firmware is available
    Code:
    # yum install iwl5000-firmware
    Loaded plugins: security
    Setting up Install Process
    No package iwl5000-firmware available.
    Nothing to do

    What should I replace here. Thank you for your cooperation.

    You skipped the second step. After downloading the rpm package, do
    Code:
    rpm -Uhv rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
    Then you should be able to install the firmware with yum.

    Edit: The above needs to be done as root.
    Code:
    su -c 'rpm -Uhv rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm'

    Thanks dear reed for your help

    Now I think it's completed. But when I went to activate my wireless cards I notices something as it said it fails even I couldn't copy what was written because the dialog box disappeared quickly and then I saw it was Activated but I got another problem that I couldn't now connect to internet through Linux even through the lan cable. I don't know what happen exactly. Another question, how can I get the list of my wireless so I can pick up my wireless so I can enter the password as well to get connected?. Now I'm writing from windows. Thank you very much for your cooperation and for your patient.

    Now the network cable is working fine from linux. Could you please tell me where from I can get the dialog box for showing all the list of wireless so I can pick up my wireless signal.

    When I want to activate my wireless card I got these message
    Code:
    Determining IP information for wlan0...PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) from 192.168.1.29 wlan0: 56(84) bytes of data.

    4 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 2999ms
    , pipe 3
     failed.
    I'm looking forward your reply. Thank you very much.
