How to load the ipw2100 (intel pro wireless) firmware on a live cd?


I am using a Japanese distribution "Momonga" linux with my notebook, but the distribution doesnt include the ipw2100 firmware by defaulf. Normally I have to reboot the machine (on a harddisk installed system) after installing the firmware to make it load. How can I load the firmware without rebooting?

Thanks

Hi,

You could use 'ndiswrapper' and the M$ Win driver for the ipw2100.

You are sure the 'ipw2100' driver is not included with your distro? That's a common device.
