ipw2100 on 10.2 Kernel 2.6.14


Hi guys,

I'm using 10.2 with 2.6.14.2 on my Fujitsu S6130 laptop.

Can anyone pls tell me how should I go about using the Intel Pro/Wireless 2100?

Thanks!

Thanks Noxious, for the fast response.

However, I read from somewhere that says 2.6.14 contains the driver for my wireless card. So how do I use that?

When i type 'iwconfig', it says no interface detected.. More help pls.. thanks!

Try loading the module first: modprobe ipw2100
Then: iwconfig

Well, how did you install the kernel? You compiled it yourself?

If so, you've to select the following:
Code:
Networking --->
    <M> Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack
    <M>   IEEE 802.11 WEP encryption

Device Drivers --->
    Network device support --->
       Wireless LAN (non-hamradio) --->[*] Wireless LAN drivers (non-hamradio) & Wireless Extensions
          <M>   Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection
And I think you've to get the firmware too, make a search on this forum, i'm sure you'll find the answer.

If I'm not mistaken there are many references to the 2200 drivers floating around as well; the same instructions should work fairly easily.

A search for 2100 should point you in the right place.

Thanks Gbonvehi again, and Poetics.

I got it activated following Gbonvehi's advise. I downloaded and loaded the firmware before modprobe.

However while configuring it, this command doesn't work -
*iwconfig eth0 channel 3*
- it says this is not supported. So now i still cant connect to my wireless network.

What is the easiest way to configure this Intel 2100 card?
