    Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2200 BG Mini-PCI Adapter


    I have my Dell XPS M140 that has dual boot in it - - - Windows XP SP2 and Fedora Core 5 Linux.

    It has Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2200 BG Mini-PCI Adapter.
    I can do internet when I'm in windows xp environment but cannot seem to do my wireless work in fc5 mode. I really want to learn more on linux and I just thought it would be really nice if I will be in linux mode while connected to the internet so that learning would be applied immediately in real-time.

    If somebody can help me of the things I do first since I can only connect to the internet when in windows mode. Maybe extract files i will need.. i dont know,... save these to my flash drive then switch to fc5 mode the perform the steps that will hopefully get me connected to the internet and somehow continue my linux interest with the support online.

    Thank you,

    You should try to update to Fedora 7 in order to get better support and easier to find RPM packages for your kernel.
    However you can try getting an RPM with the kernel headers, install it and then compile the ipw2200 driver.
    You can also just try
    modprobe ipw2200 and check then the output of iwconfig

    You can also find a precompiled RPM with the driver in it, post the output of uname -a, so we can help you to find one
