Post WireLess 802.11 internal device to work in Linux


Hiya guys, I hope you're all fine.

Well, listen up, here's the deal.

Yesterday I got a new laptop, Fujitsu C2210 series.
A nice looking foe and okay speed 2.2ghz, with 512ram, 60gig, internal ethernet, dial modem, wireless, dvd writer, flppy, etc....

Anyway, as soon as I got it I slapped Linux on it. Well, I tried, but the foes from Windows like to make things just a notch more complicated so I bumped into NTFS partition, so I got on my way to download PartitionMagic 8.0, the cracked version , and then I put Linux on the laptop. Everything works fine, except like always the 3d acceleration card, and the one other thing I could not get to work is the WireLess internal card.
It is a Intersil Prism2 wireless lan pci card (embedded inside the computer).
I tried searching for the card in the list, but no luck. So I'm not sure what else I can do.
The computer wont see the hardware either with modprobe.

Thanks in advance for the help guys!
have a nice DAY,

zLinuxz

okay thanks for letting me know.
btw, do you have the same device? or you just have the same problem?

also keep in mind that you got one of the 'overall' least compatible computers with Linux.
Fujitsu and Toshiba are the best bet....but not perfect as you can see, hehe, I can't get this wireless device to work, YET,
