Where to enter WEP

Just installed FC5 and can't find any place to enter WEP code. Any help greatly appreciated.

Hardware: Dell Inspiron 5150 w/1Gb memory, 100 Gb HD, CD/DVD Combo drive, Intel Pro/Wireless 2200 mini-pci and built in lan.

In the menu System->Administration->Network, select your wireless device and click on the Edit button. WEP settings are on the 'Wireless Settings' tab.

Device iwp2200 is not recognized as wireless. At least when I select the device and edit it does not show any wireless settings tab.

The following message was given when trying to activate device iwp2200:

"Cannot activate network device eth1...

ipw2200 device th1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization"

Does this give anyone a clue as to what may be wrong?

Re: where to enter WEP

You need to update your ipw2200 firmware. Google for it.


fc5, ipw2200, wep
