Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2200 BG Mini-PCI Adapter


I have my Dell XPS M140 that has dual boot in it - - - Windows XP SP2 and Fedora Core 5 Linux.

It has Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2200 BG Mini-PCI Adapter.
I can do internet when I'm in windows xp environment but cannot seem to do my wireless work in fc5 mode. I really want to learn more on linux and I just thought it would be really nice if I will be in linux mode while connected to the internet so that learning would be applied immediately in real-time.

If somebody can help me of the things I do first since I can only connect to the internet when in windows mode. Maybe extract files i will need.. i dont know,... save these to my flash drive then switch to fc5 mode the perform the steps that will hopefully get me connected to the internet and somehow continue my linux interest with the support online.

Thank you,

You should have searched. This gets asked about 10 times a week, and the answer never changes.

You need the firmware for the ipw2200, which can be found at

This reply was written on that exact wireless card, so I'm 100% certain that it works.
