Default Wlan and IBM Thinkpad T41 - 2nd

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hey everbody,

I installed Debian Lenny two days ago.

All works fine but I can't use my Wlan card.

Does anyone have an idea or can give me documentation?

I found a couple of installation guides, but there are for Debian 4.0
only.

Thanks for help!

What kind of card do you have? What have you tried? What doesn't
work?

We need the chipset information, for starters (lspci / lsusb).

Hey,



I have the:



Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter



here is the URL from thinkwiki.org:

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:T41



I have tried to install the card with the follow documentation:



http://www.chrm.info/dokus/notebook_install_t41.html



But if I try to activate the module ( modprobe ipw2200 ) debian says

that the file /usr/lib/modules/2.6-686/ipw2200-modules-2.6-686.ko can

not be find.





That's what I get under Debian Etch.

Are you using a stock kernel, or a self-built one? 'uname -a'?

You need to install the firmware-ipw2x00 package from non-free.
http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=firmware-ipw2x00

Hi,



thanks it works!



Do I have to install a special package* for WPA support? I try to

connect to our WLAN (I think with correct passphrase) but I don't get

any connection.

wpasupplicant is installed.



bye

I assume that that's a stock kernel. What does
'/usr/lib/modules/2.6-686/' contain? You seem to be missing the
module; I have no idea why.

Now the WLAN card works fine!



I've installed the driver from the debian package website - reboot the

system and it runs.

But I'm not able to connect via WPA to the network. Maybe there is

still a wpa package problem or my roomie has changed the passphrase.
:-)



However ... thanks for your help!



Maybe you have an idea how can I solve the wpa problem?

My experience is that wicd is the only package that really does the job.
