Dell Precision M60/M70 Wireless NICs in Fedora



Hi,

On my DELL Precision M60 I have a DELL TrueMobile 1400 (802.11a/b/g).

I would like to finally get this one going without using any
contamination from Windows (i.e. don't want ndiswrappers)

Is the DELL TrueMobile 1400 equivalent to ipw2100 or ipw2200?

The folks that use ndiswrapper have a line like this:
===========================================================
ndiswrapper -i /windows/C/DRIVERS/STORAGE/BCMWL5.INF
===========================================================

This makes me think that we are dealing with broadcom, hmmm?


I am sure DELL is not making their own wireless NICs; what is the real
wireless NIC in the DELL M60?





As for the DELL Precision M70, I have a "Intel PRO/Wireless 2915 a/b/g"
"Fedora 3/4" did not automatically detect and install, hmmm.
>From what I find it seems that the ipw2200 will support the following:
==========================================================================
Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection Adapter
Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection Adapter
==========================================================================

How to get this going under Fedora Core 4 and higher?
Could someone point me in the right direction? 




Thanks,
Ernesto
