Just installed Fedora 17 and the Wireless Adaptor is not being detected.


I am new to Linux so thanks in advance for the help. The wireless adaptor does not appear to be activated with Fedora 17. In network manager only the wired network is visible. The machine is partitioned and the wireless network is available on the Windows partition. The machine is a Toshiba P845-S4200 with an Intel Centrino N-2200 wireless adaptor. Here are the details.

p33p1 no wireless extensions.


Also, when running the 'rfkill list' command there is nothing returned
i.e. [root@Toshi2 trl]# rfkill list all
[root@Toshi2 trl]#

And ...

[root@Toshi2 trl]# dmesg | grep firmware
[ 15.488812] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: request for firmware file 'iwlwifi-2000-5.ucode' failed.

[ 17.257186] atl1c 0000:01:00.0: vpd r/w failed. This is likely a firmware bug on this device. Contact the card vendor for a firmware

Is there any significance that the Ethernet Controller lists a Kernel Driver but the Network Controller does not??

Solved: I downloaded the driver for iwlwifi-2000-5.ucode from http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=downloads I then moved the downloaded file iwlwifi-2000-6.ucode into lib/firmware/ The adaptor was detected on reboot.
