Get FC5 to recognize my wireless card.
Posted on 2006-05-13
I have a Dell XPSM140 which is really just a suped up Inspiron.
I know that when I insert the latest Knoppix DVD, it recognizes my wireless card just fine.
However, when I installed FC5, it places the
"02:03.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG MiniPCI Adapter (rev 05)"
Under Ethernet devises, not Wireless.
I am fairly good with linux, but not a guru, which is why I installed, it, to help me.
Therefore, your going to have to step a bit down the leet speek ladder with me.
Now when I try to initialize the device under Eth1(Ethernet Devices), I get this error.
"ipw2200 device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization."
And when i try and add a new wireless device, the Pro Wireless driver is not on the list.
Can anyone reccommend how to do this, or guide me to a well explained intrustions page?
