Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 MiniPCI
 
Has anyone got this card working in linux? I know that intel said that they were going to start making linux drivers for all their Centrino products, but who knows when those will be out. Who else could make drivers for this card? Is it a broadcom chipsed or some other manufacturer?

What's the output of /sbin/lspci, for a while Intell has just been rebranding other chipsets before they finally came out with one of their own. If its an Intel... they'll get around to it, if its a broadcom it might never happen, they're being jackasses about even releasing specs so the open community can engineer a driver. Lastly, it might be an orinoco, which is covered...

Cheers,

So it's an intel chipset, correct?

You might want to look at the second page of this post to see what intel has to say about they're drivers for centrino products.

Yeah, its a pure Intel, its not a big deal though... if Intel doesn't plan to, as long as they are open with the card specs, someone else will, and they have a good track record for doing so... but it probably will be a while.

Could we get this card added to the FAQ about nuscence drivers?

[Edit]
What about this? Is this saying that it works with an existing driver?

I just added it to the nuissance list and then checked back to this post, and then went to the sf site on that driver... which seems really old, and hasn't been ported along much, I have to look into it more, apparently Intel went with spectrum kit, but probably not for their mini-pci offering, and regardless I doubt this kid will work unmodified.

Thanks for adding it finegan. And tell us if you find anything I'd really like to get this card working under linux.

ChaosX2 07-11-2003 01:26 AM

So would I

finegan 07-12-2003 05:34 PM

Okay, sorry for the few days lag, as far as I can tell there is indeed no connection between the intell 2100 and the 2011 chipsets, the second of which being a rebranded early spectrum24 chipset. Keep your eyes glued to Jean's page as he's going to catch on to support for it probably a week or two before threads appear here.

Cheers,

Finegan

I found this site

http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net

These seem to be the drivers you need. I can't figure out how to isntall them but...they seem to be a step in the right direction ;)

You are correct. At the time of the last post the drivers mentioned did not exist. There are two different drivers for the different intel cards: ipw2100.sf.net and ipw2200.sf.net. You said you where having problems installing them. Which Distro are you using?
