Help with Suse 10.0 wifi desperately needed
I have a dell inspiron 6000 laptop with an intel 2200bg wifi adapter. There are loads of posts on this all over the place but i cant seem to find anything to help me.
Anyway im a complete noob so this is my problem. I have a fresh install of suse 10 and cant get my wifi to work. Yast recognises my wifi card but thats about it. The only network interface appears to be eth0 my 10/100 (which does work else i would be completly stuck without net access). I have downloaded the firmware from ipw2200.sourceforge.net and dropped them in /lib/firmware. I then ran modprobe ipw2200 but it doesnt appear to do anything.
Anyone got any ideas
Help would be much appreciated, let me know whatever extrat information you require.
Hope I've given you a couple of things to try, good luck!!
The centrino wlan(ipw2100/2200/2195) thingy is "supported" , but due to a license problems they can't include the ipw-firmware.-package to make it operational.
Yes you can see the card in the network adapter list, but cannot use it or configurate it.
Download package from here ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/ftp...5-6.noarch.rpm
Install it with Yast or with "rpm -ivh package.rpm" (must be done by root)
Log in and configure your card
Thanks. The rpm seems to do the trick. All works with no extra effort required.
Thanks for your help
