Wireless on Targa Traveller with Fedora 10


Hello,

I'm having difficulty with wireless on Fedora 10 on a Targa Traveller laptop.

This is a dual-boot system. Windows XP wireless works OK.

With the hardware button, the wireless is switched on.

The wireless adapter :
Code:
02:09.0 Ethernet controller: Linksys, A Division of Cisco Systems [AirConn] INPROCOMM IPN 2220 Wireless LAN Adapter (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 6855
	Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle+ MemWINV+ VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B- DisINTx-
	Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
	Latency: 64 (8000ns min, 8000ns max)
	Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 5
	Region 0: I/O ports at e400 [size=32]
	Region 1: Memory at fbfff800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=32]
	Region 2: Memory at fbffe800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K]
	Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
		Flags: PMEClk- DSI+ D1- D2+ AuxCurrent=0mA PME(D0-,D1-,D2-,D3hot-,D3cold-)
		Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=0 PME-
ipw2200 is installed :
Code:
[root@eddy eddy]# yum install ipw2200-firmware
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package ipw2200-firmware-3.1-1.fc10.noarch already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
the module is clearly not loaded :
Code:
[root@eddy eddy]# lsmod | grep 2200
So I load the module :
Code:
[root@eddy eddy]# modprobe ipw2200
I then see :
Code:
[root@eddy eddy]# lsmod | grep 2200
ipw2200               126536  0 
ieee80211              27848  1 ipw2200
But NetworkManager still sees no wireless adapter... only the eth0.

So what are the steps I still need to take ?

Also run "lspci -n" so we can see what the manufacture's ID is.
Also run "uname -r" and post the results. This provides your kernel version.

You might have a kernel who's ipw2x00 module doesn't recognize the MANID because the kernel is too old.

I downloaded the source for the 2.6.38.5 kernel and couldn't find an entry for your device in the ipw2x00 source. You might need to resort to ndiswrapper, unless a different kernel module is used for this device.
