Default Ipw2200 problem in Fedora 8

Hi all,

I use Fedora 8 under my laptop Thinkpad x40, kernel vesion: 2.6.24.4-64.fc8. But I have a problem with the wireless card when I run Fedora 8, actually the wireless card can work well under WinXP. When I boot my laptop under Fedora 8, it always show me in the log file:

ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.2kmprq
ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:02.0[A] -> GSI 21 (level, low) -> IRQ 22
ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
ipw2200: ipw2200-bss.fw request_firmware failed: Reason -2
ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: -2
ipw2200: failed to register network device
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:02:02.0 disabled
ipw2200: probe of 0000:02:02.0 failed with error -5

Does any idea to fix such problem? Thanks.

You need the firmware for you card. You can add atrpm repo to your yum configuration or grab it directly from the web[1]
Take care when adding atrpms to your list of repos, it may conflict with livna if you already has it.


You can also go to the ipw2200 project's page, grab the firmware and unpack it to /lib/firmware [2]

[1] http://www.atrpms.net/dist/common/ipw2200-firmware

[2] http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/firmware.php

You did not install the firmware. A simple

yum install ipw2200-firmware

should fix the problem.

One Bell System - it works.

Default Ipw2200 problem in Fedora 8

'T' is mtime difference. Curious what might cause it, but immaterial.

Isn't -2 equal to ENOENT? It's a bad filename.

Default Ipw2200 problem in Fedora 8

Hi,

When I remove the ipw2200-firmware,install it again, and verify ipw2200-firmware, it show me:
#rpm -e ipw2200-firmware-3.0-9
#yum -y install ipw2200-firmware
#rpm -V ipw2200-firmware-3.0-9
(no message)

But when I reinstalled the ipw2200 module, it showed me:
#rmmod ipw2200
#modprobe ipw2200
#tail -f /var/log/messages
.....
Apr 29 10:19:58 localhost kernel: ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.2kmprq

.....

And run dmesg, it shows:
#dmesg|grep ipw2200
ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.2kmprq
ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation

ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: -2
ipw2200: failed to register network device
ipw2200: probe of 0000:02:02.0 failed with error -5

Any idea? Thanks
