Installing wireless driver, Intel pro/wireless 2100


I am an absolute noob to linux and have done about 4 hours of research on making my wireless work. This is where I'm at.
- I have my ethernet port finally working for internet
- I have an Intel pro/wireless 2100
- I have went through the steps for the install but its not recognized
- I ran a command to determine the status of my radio
- This came with a value of 0 meaning the card is switched off
- I have no external switch
- I am running a Latitude D6000
- I have not found any patch for the above named switch issue
- I have the drivers on my desktop however I'm not sure if they are installed right. I'm not sure how install works with linux.
- I am running backtrack 4 final
- I am not using this for the injection. Thats not my concern
- iwconfig says no wireless extensions
- Essiw says off/any
-
