Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
FC6 does not recognize my built-in wireless card. (ipw2200bg)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 153259 [details]
a text file from my dmesg.log
It does recognize your device:
ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.0kmprq
ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:03:03.0[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection

ipw2200: ipw2200-bss.fw request_firmware failed: Reason -2
ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: -2
ipw2200: failed to register network device
But notice that the firmware fails to load. This is probably because you don't
have it installed. We didn't have the rights to ship this until very recently,
so FC6 didn't install this at all by default. It is now available and you can
install it from our repositories by issuing the following command:
yum install ipw2200-firmware
