Re: "Intel Corp. PRO/Wireless 2200BG" stopped working in Linux

Hello again,

It suppose to be easy, lest do it right:
0. Chek that your kernel have the correct support (read the INSTALL file in
1. Get the last source and firmware
2. remove any old ieee80211 or Intel pro/wireless
3. Build and install the current ieee80211 module
4. Build and install the current pro/wireless
5. Build and install the firmware

And should be all.

The problem that you state above seems to be that you do not have the
ieee80211 module in your new kernel or the correct version, chek with this
# ls -l
if everything is ok it should return
on mine laptop
kukulcan bazz # ls -l /lib/modules/*/net/*/.tmp_versions/
total 20
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 285 Apr 12 17:47 ieee80211.mod
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 101 Apr 12 17:47 ieee80211_crypt.mod
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 111 Apr 12 17:47 ieee80211_crypt_ccmp.mod
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 111 Apr 12 17:47 ieee80211_crypt_tkip.mod
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 109 Apr 12 17:47 ieee80211_crypt_wep.mod

Here are some outputs which i would like to share with you.

fawad@Ubuntu-01:~$ lsmod | grep ieee80211
ieee80211              38504  1 ipw2200
ieee80211_crypt         5504  2 ieee80211,hostap

I think the problem was with the firmware, when i updated my formware
to v2.4 everything is now working fine.

Thanks a lot for your help.


It tells us that the module is installed.

And realy hope this help, is anoying connect to the net wired when you can
do it without any wire.
