Installing a wireless device...
I'm quite new to Linux, and i've been searching for a way to correctly configure my wireless card for my Dell Inspiron 8600. The card is an Intel Pro/Wireless 2100. My problem doesn't lie in the driver configuration, but in allowing the system to know of the device's existance. I've done searches on how to configure my card on these boards and I've used ndiswrapper to use my winXP drivers for the card. I've gotten to the point where the driver is present when I run the command ndiswrapper -l and i've added the module to the kernel using modprobe. My question now is how do I get wlan0 to show up in my iwconfig and ifconfig? I've created an ifcfg-wlan0 file in my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory but when I try to activate the device, it gives an error reporting the device as being not found.
Again, i'm running a Dell Inspiron 8600 with an Intel Pro/Wireless 2100 using Fedora Core 2...any help on this would be appreciated.
