    Default Wireless on Intel Pro/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI

    Hello everybody, I'm having troubles configuring my computer so that I can connect to my wireless network. I can currently connect to the internet through my ethernet cable.

    I have a Intel Pro/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI

    Running iwconfig shows that
    lo , eth0, irda0 all do not have wireless extenstions

    I tried downloading the driver using
    apt-get install ipw2100-source
    But gives me an error saying the package could not be found.

    So i downloaded the driver from
    http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/
    Unzipped the file and moved it to
    /lib/firware

    I tried using modprobe.
    And still no luck.
    When i try to bring up wlan0 with
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    I get an error, and the device isn't found.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thankyou.

    Hi, I just got the ipw2100 to work on my dell 600m laptop. I can't tell why it's not working for you so here is exactly what i did.

    I downloaded the firmware from sourceforge using firmware version 1.3.
    Unzipped and moved to:
    /lib/firmware
    then "modprobe ipw2100".
    then I shutdown with shutdown -h 0.
    Restarted , iwconfig , and it worked.
