VectorLinux 7.0: enabling wireless card (Intel 2200BG)
I recently revived my older Medion laptop with VectorLinux 7.0. So far everything works great, only connecting to the internet via wireless is a problem. The OS recognizes my wireless network card (i think), lspci gives me:
# lspci | egrep -i 'network'
Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2]
But now, when I run vasm and select HARDWARE->HWCONF, I get a message "Turning on wireless support", but meanwhile, in the terminal, a message is printed about "eth1" telling me that it is turned off (Tx-Power=off). So does this indicate that my wireless card is simply not turned on? Wired networks work normally, but no matter what I do Wicd tells me that there are no wireless networks.
