Driver ipw2200 needs updating
So, adding support for the ABG is just a matter of updating the firmware used by the ipw2200 project, adding PCI id's, and putting in support for A.
That work will progress as we continue to bring full support for the ipw2200 project.
At some point in the near future we will rename the ipw2200 project to something more appropriate to identify it as supporting both the 22 adapters.
Thanks, James Latest snapshot for the 2200 is here: As with the ipw2100, you can get the latest bits from Bit Keeper at bk://[email protected]/ipw-2.6 I think I caught all of the fixes/patches.
Anyway, this brings me to announcing Linux support for the Intel PRO/Wireless 2915 ABG Network Connection adapter.
=20 I have a Cisco AP1100 running the latest software: IOS (tm) C1100 Software (C1100-K9W7-M), Version 12.2(15)JA, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) I've never been able to associate with my 2200BG. I was running an older IOS version then the one listed, I upgraded the AP with same results. A Palm OS handheld, a Prism card, some Buffalo cards, and several Cisco cards.
I have admin rights on the AP if more debug/details are needed.
To that end we're working to try and get it ready for submittal along with the ipw2100 project. The ipw2100 and ipw2200 projects currently share the 802.11 frame handling stack for Tx/Rx and some management frame processing.
That code has been pulled into its own module suite (ieee80211), based on work from the Host AP project.=20 BTW, any ABAT results you contribute will get posted here: driver=3Dipw2= 2 00 =20 Please provide driver version, laptop model, OS distribution, and kernel version.
