Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 with SUSE 10 on an Acer TravelMate 4102
Hello. I am having troubles with an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200.
I installed openSUSE 10.0 with kernel 2.6.13-15-default (as uname -r returned). YAST detected and loaded the ipw2200 modules from the install source. Even then the wireless card can't connect to the network. I tried then to install the modules from Intel.
I followed the Install instructions from everything. Deleted every reference from every old module, the IEEE80211 and the ipw2200.
I had first some troubles installing ieee80211, the script ignored the IEEE80211_INC="" argument, which has the information of the directory where the source code will be copied, id est, the script always left the source in the pwd; so I had to redirect the same parameter when compiling the code of ipw2200 to the directory where I unzipped the ieee80211 module.
Then I unzipped the firmware to the hotplug directory (which i think is /lib/firmware; since I don't find the directory /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/ in my distro).
At first this seemed the right way, since everything compiled and no error messages where displayed. But when trying to do modprobe to the ipw2200 module the error message that "Novell didn't supported this module version" and since I couldn't go far. The modules aren't loaded.
The sources I am using are:
I don't know what's next. And I am thinking I'll need to patch the kernel or something. Any ideas? Thanks.
