Default Intel(R) PRO/Wireless Card

Dear List

I am trying to install my Intel(R)
PRO/Wireless on my fedora core system.* I have installed the drivers

dmesg | grep ipw2200

I have also configured the device with the correct keys and
ESSID

How can I get it to recognise my wireless card and get my
networking to work?


*


Thanks I advance

Gordon,

I'm not sure if this will help, but it took me 3 days to figure out that
I had the wireless button on my desktop turned off instead of on. I
have a fedora Core 7 hp laptop. The problem that is present is that the
light on the wireless button is never activated so the light always
stays off.

I found that every time I toggled the wireless button I had to reboot
the system for the kernel to recognize the change in status of the
wireless card. Rebotting each time you toggle the button a real pain,
and I recently got bitten again when someone using my laptop toggled the
button without my knowledge.

If you are using NetworkManager you should see a status icon in the top
task bar. If you know that you have wireless systems in range they will
be present in the NetworkManager drop down window. If your wireless
button is toggled off none will appear. Another tool you can use to
determine the presence of wireless networks is nm-tool.

Hope this helps you... it took me three days to figure out the toggle
problem.

Default Intel(R) PRO/Wireless Card

Gordon,
For what I see your card is recognized and the drivers loaded. You can
veryfy this by cat /etc/modprobe.conf.
I also see that is looking for an IP sent by a DHCP server which is
good. I see that tries to get for itself an ipv6 address. Is your
router/dhcp giving out IPv6 address at your home or organization. If
not disable it globally on /etc/sysconfig/network:
NETWORKING=yes
NETWORKING_IPV6=no
HOSTNAME=my box

I had this card working since FC1, the only issue I had during the
first three releases of FC was I had to load the firmware, now this is
no longer an issue. I only had an issue with it on Fedora 9 because of
I had installed gnome NetworkManager, which I usally avoid. So my
system recognized but it didn't attach to my access point
automatically at home like it used to do. This laptop is my tftp
roaming desktop and my tftp server to retrieve/send Cisco routers &
switches configurations so I use it heavily. What I did was to remove
(yum erase NetworkManager) and it automatically connected at home and
when I go to work if I need to connect wirelessly I run a scrip with
the iwconfig commands and works as it used to do. This is my script
when I need to connect to any site on my job:
#!/bin/bash
#Wireless connection script for my job site
#Author: Ed Landaveri
iwconfig mode Managed
iwconfig essid myjobssid
dhclient
echo $?
exit


Hope this will help. Regards
