Re: Can't Get Intel PRO/Wireless Card to work with FC5

Hi Jim,

The actual IPW2200 drivers are built into the kernel already, it is just the firmware you require.

I have logged a bugzilla call a few weeks back when I was testing FC5T3 and receiving the following error:-
NETDEV_TX_BUSY returned; driver should report queue full via ieee_device->is_queue_full.

This call was moved over to FC5 and is still assigned.  From looking at the drivers available there is a newer version which may fix this.   I don't know how the system handles loading the right module if you installed the ones from livna.

Hello All,

Can anyone tell me how to get my Intel Pro/Wireless card to work on
FC5?  I checked the IPW2200 mailing list and they believe that I should
have everything I need for this to work already installed on my machine
yet I am not able to get this to work.

Version of IPW2200 = git-1.0.4
Version of Firmware = 2.4

At the current state of my machine here are the steps that I have done.
1. installed liva rpm source
2. ran yum update ipw2200-firmware (to try and update the firmware)
    result: Could not find update match for ipw2200-firmware, No Packages marked
for Update/Obsoletion
3. ran dmesg
    result: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Drive , git-1.0.8
            Copyright(c) 2003-2005 Intel Corporation
4. Ran iwconfig
    Result: lo: No wireless extensions
            eth0: No wireless extensions
            sit0: No wireless extensions
5. Ran system-config-network
    Under devices tab
       1. Clicked new
       2. Selected "Wireless Connection"
    `  3. Click forward
          Result: "Other Wireless Card" is the only selection in the device list.
       4. Selected Ethernet Connection"
       5. Click forward
          Result: Intel Corporate PRO/Wireless 2915ABG MiniPCI Adapter(eth1),
Broadcom Corporate BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (eth0) and Other Ethernet Card are
listed in the device menu

Can anyone tell me what Im missing to be able to get this to work?

means that the firmware wasn't loaded

check out

Hey Jim,

The first link was the same set of steps for updating the firmware and I did redo those steps just now thinking maybe I missed something and when I run ifup eth1 I get the following error:

ipw2200 device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization

They didn't tell me that I needed to set up the ifcfg-eth1 profile manually but I did that part anyway and still managed to get that error.

dmesg confirms that the device has not loaded when running modprobe.

Is there anything else that I can try?
