Dell D810 Intel Wireless Card on Ubuntu


How would I go about getting the wireless working on my Dell Latitude D810 which has a Intel wireless card? I am using Ubuntu. I am a complete newbie so the more details the better. Thanks in advance!

im guessing its a IPW2200

im also guessing you are using Ubuntu 5.10

it should have been detected at install

just go to Desktop -> applications -> networking and configure it

Those assumptions are both correct, however it didnt detect it at install. An iwconfig shows no wireless extensions on all interfaces.

I am also having problems with the intel wireless card on breezy. However, mine was detected during install without a problem.

First, you should check if the module is loaded, by typing
Code:
lsmod | grep ipw2200
You should see a line something like this:

ipw2200 157120 0

If not, then the you should try to load the module yourself, by typing
Code:
modprobe ipw2200
If that works, you should now be able to see your card with iwconfig.

Hope that helps

When you type "lspci", does your card show up? You should get a line something like this:

0000:02:03.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG (rev 05)

I do not see any line like that when running that command. However, i do have a line telling me "0000:03:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation: Unknown device 4319 (rev 02)". Could this be my wireless card not being detected?
