FC5 can't activate Intel Pro 2011 wlan card


Hi all

I just installed FC5 and just can't seem to get my Intel Pro 2011 wlan PC card to work.

0. My card is recognized in hardware. When i insert the card and perform dmesg, I get:

pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 1
pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia1.0
eth1: Hardware identity 8000:0001:0000:0000
eth1: Station identity 001f:0002:0002:0001
eth1: Firmware determined as Symbol V2.51-04
eth1: Ad-hoc demo mode supported
eth1: IEEE standard IBSS ad-hoc mode supported
eth1: WEP supported, 104-bit key
eth1: MAC address 00:03:47:15:16:2B
eth1: Station name "Prism I"
eth1: ready
eth1: index 0x01: Vcc 5.0, irq 3, io 0xe100-0xe147
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready

/sbin/lsmod shows the usual modules associated with this card, which worked seamlessly in FC4:

orinoco_cs 16709 1
orinoco 36565 1 orinoco_cs
hermes 7489 2 orinoco_cs,orinoco



1. When I insert the card and run the Network Device Control app, it fails with the following message:

Determining IP information for eth1... failed; no link present. Check cable?



2. Running dmesg gives the following information:

ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready



3. With kWifiManager (KDE) I am able to specify the ESSID and activate the card in the sense that the radio signal is detected and there is some indication of the signal strength. But I am not able to connect to the net with this.

Also, when this 'activation' is performed and I run the system's Network Device Control app as in Item #1, the signal is not recognized anymore.




4. I googled for errors on Intel Pro Wireless and got something about firmware etc for ipw2200. I didn't think all this was applicable to my primitive card yet I downloaded the firmware into /lib/firmware as the instructions said. I then performed the /sbin/modprobe for the module which went through but didn't help with connecting.


5. Strangely, there seems to be no /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts file. I remember having seen this in FC2 but I didn't check for this file in FC3 or FC4. Is this file no longer required?



Can anyone help me with this?
