    Default Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 driver

    I have the above card and it didn't work out of the box in 5r3. The fix was very simple (adding a file to /lib/firmware). Can this be added to the main distribution, as well as maybe the other ones on that page?

    Here is my thread with my solution: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=54302

    I had no trouble injecting packages with the default driver I downloaded from there.

    Hi,

    Recently I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 which uses an "Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200" wireless card.
    I installed the BT5 r2 32Bits distro but I can't see my wireless card
    I downloaded the driver found in http://intellinuxwireless.org/ and placed the ucode archive in /lib/firmware
    then I tried
    root@bt:~# prodprobe -r iwlagn
    root@bt:~# prodprobe iwlagn

    rebooted my laptop but still no luck.

    Can somebody give me a hint? I have like a week working on it and I can´t get the wireless networkk to work

    it is `modprobe iwlagn`, not `prodprobe iwlagn`.
    Also, after running that, don't reboot, since this is not saved in the setup, it will get reset after a reboot.

    Hello, thanks for the correction.
    It is indeed modprobe, I misspelled the words.

    Yesterday I could find a solution to my problem installing the stable compat-wireless release
    I must to say mine was a Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 driver but maybe it could help to the 2230 driver too.

    Please head to http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=50808 to see more info.
