Intel pro wireless 2200BG in centos 6.3


Hi Guys

I am new to centos . I installed centos 6.3 32 bit in my old compaq laptop. I am having trouble with my wireless. lspci shows ipw2200BG present. I am sure its turned on also. Now firmware is also installed because when i tried installing the firmware it says already a newer version is installed. But modprobe ipw2200 gives fatal error not able to detect the device... pls help.

Sean

When dealing with wireless devices it would be efficient to post actual HW chipset, software version, module information and command line output. Grepping through dmesg shows what the kernel thinks of available devices (within one product different chipsets may have been used), 'lspci -k' if it has loaded any modules for them, running modinfo on the module if specific parameters should be used and /etc/modprobe*/* contents if any related configuration already exists. Additionally posting any related configuration file contents may help as well. I'll move this thread to Networking / wireless as it's more appropriate there.
