Hi,

Do a 'lspci -vv' and 'ifconfig -a' and post the results.

Hi,

You should upgrade your 'pci.ids file'.

You should update your distribution id's periodically if you change pci devices with newer ones or have unknown pci device(s).

Try the 'ipw2200.ko' module for your wireless. it is located;
'/lib/modules/2.6.21.5-smp/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200.ko' or '/lib/modules/2.6.24.5/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200.ko'.

The location of the module depends on the kernel you are using.
