FC2 not recognizing the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG wireless card


Hello,
Did successfully instal fresh installation of FC2 (4 disks) on my laptop sony (PCG-Z1WA) and everything works great. But when I try to configure the built-in wireless network card (Intel pro2200 BG) linux doesn't recognize the device. I could see the device when I did "lspci -tv".

Can anyone help me configure the wireless?

Thankyou.

Have a look at http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/

I've not really read anything on the site but it seems to be the site to help you. If you could post your views/findings would be handy for reference.

ndiswrapper is probably a better choice for you - it seems to work flawlessly for everyone I've talked to. Yeah, I'm too lazy to go find the link... so here you go: http://www.google.com/linux
