    Default Intel Pro Wireless 2100, missing firmware

    For those of you getting some errors about the missing firmware of the ipw2100, the solution is as simple as downloading the firmware from http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/firmware.php (version 1.3) and extract the files to /lib/firmware.

    Another dead thread with no fix. Can someone please share their solution if they have one? I have the same problem here.

    I'm having a hard time with this. I have no ethernet connection, I dropped the files in "lib" and I still get a package not found error when i try to "apt-get install ipw2100". Is my syntax wrong?

    You shouldn't drop the files inside /lib, but in /lib/firmware/ instead.
