Hi, all

I am using FC4 on a Thinkpad T42. I download the ieee80211 and
ipw2200, compile and install succeed. I also put the firmwire to
/lib/firmware. And after reboot the system I load the driver with
"./load" in ipw2200 src directory, it seems successful, here is the
dmesg output:

ieee80211_crypt: unregistered algorithm 'NULL' (deinit)
ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'WEP'
ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'TKIP'
ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'CCMP'
ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, 1.0.3
ieee80211: Copyright (C) 2004-2005 Intel Corporation <jketreno linux intel com>
ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.0.6
ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2004 Intel Corporation

But I noticed there is no messages for loading the ipw2200 firmware
and there's no device eth1, so I can't use the wireless. The command
"iwlist scan" list no device eth1, only a LAN device eth0 which can
work well with a normal LAN network.

Can anyone tell me what's the problem/

I can't (my T41 has the Cisco card), but I can suggest checking http://www.ces/clemson.edu/linux/fc2-ipw2200.shtml as a resource.



Thank you very much, Yours,
