Proinnsias Breathnach asked me to pass on the following about the
ipw2200.. should be useful to you Justin!
Via #linux on irc.linux.ie if anyone wants to come join us!
<pron> can you relay to the user on clug who's having ipw2200 issues
that the current drivers "Just work" (TM) on the current ubuntu kernels
and are quite stable .. .they also work with teh Mdk10.1 kernels ..
<pron> not that I've tried mdk10.1 recently though :(
<pron> might have useful info
<pron> has *lots* of useful info
<pron> Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
<pron> The current ipw2200 modules on mdk 10.1 and 10 do not work very
well. Buchan Milne made this rpms available, so just add this feed and
<pron> urpmi.addmedia ipw http://plf.zarb.org/~bgmilne/dkms/ with hdlist.cz
<pron> For the drivers install
<pron> urpmi dkms
<pron> urpmi ipw2200-dkms
<pron> urpmi ipw2100-dkms
<pron> You also need the firmware
<pron> urpmi ipw2100-firmware-1.2-1mdk
<pron> urmpi ipw2200-firmware-2.0-1mdk
<pron> After this execute drakconnect to configure the wireless card,
and everything should work fine.
