FATAL: Module ipw2200 not found


I am trying to get wireless to work on my Dell D610 laptop with Fedora Core 4. But when booting is says the the eth1 device does not exist.



I installed everything and I also have the firmware in /etc/firmware.

yum list installed:
ipw2200.i386 1.0.0-24.rhfc4.at installed
ipw2200-firmware.noarch 2.2-5.at installed
ipw2200-kmdl-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4.i686 1.0.0-24.rhfc4.at installed

lspci:
03:03.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG (rev 05)

... but I am missing these 3 folders in /lib/modules/2.6.13.2/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/:
ipw2200/
ipw2100/
ieee80211/

These folders exist in other older versions of the kernel.. but not in the current running kernel: 2.6.13.2

Also 'modprobe ipw2200' returns:
FATAL: Module ipw2200 not found.

Nothing is returned when running dmesg.

How do I get these folders into the current kernel?

Still no answers... Am I posting in the wrong forum?

Switched back to using kernel 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 .. and now everything works like a charm....

Is it to soon to use kernel 2.6.13.2 for this?

This is a global forum with knowledgable members scattered around the planet. This is not a "pay-for-answer" site were you might be able to demand attention.

I have a 2.6.13.2 kenrnel in an Acer laptop running slack 10.2 (amongst others) and it works just fine with ipw2200.

As it works with one kernel and not with the other perhaps you have made a mistake in the kernel configuration? Perhaps if you just copied the working .config into the 2.6.13.2 source tree to see if that works for you?

I don't believe that the ipw drivers are included in the kernel. It is more likely that Red Hat built them from the source code and included the modules with their stock kernels in Fedora. Note that I'm guessing the 2.6.13.2 kernel is not from Fedora.

If you want to use the 2.6.13.2 kernel, you could always compile the ipw2200 drivers from source, which you can find here
