Hi, looking for some help to get my mini pci intel 2200 BG wireless card working with Ubuntu. I've tried fiddling around for days now, using the vast knowledge available on the forum, but am getting nowhere. Just moved over from Windows and loving Ubuntu, but have very little knowlegde of Linux/Ubuntu. I deliberately bought a "supported out of the box" wireless card from ebay to try and minimise the chances of having a wireless problem, but here we are.

After playing about with commands in terminal for days, I have put a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 on and eagerly await some help from you clever people. I have managed to get online by plugging in my trusty Netgear USB Dongle which worked immediately.

Well impressed with how fast Ubuntu is compared to Windows. Can't think of any reason to ever use it again!

I have included some info below for your perusal in accordance with the HOWTO post a Wireless issue (ticket) instructions.

Many thanks in advance

Andy

Wow! dmesg has given you two possible solutions:
ipw2200 0000:00:06.0: can't find IRQ for PCI INT A; please try using pci=biosirq
PnPBIOS: Check with your vendor for an updated BIOSHere is how to use a boot parameter, such as pci=biosirq: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=8990468&postcount=4

If that doesn't fix it, we have other options. You might check on a BIOS update.

Many thanks for the speedy reply

Added the boot parameter successfully but adapter still not available. Checked BIOS, already running latest version.

dmesg gives

Unplugged to no avail. Booted with cable unplugged to no avail.

Is this significant? There is no hard switch for wireless...

"wireless=radio off"

chili555
March 28th, 2010, 02:12 AM
It means either that there is a soft switch, Fn+F4, for example, or that the kernel doesn't recognize the radio condition; sometimes an ACPI issue. Oops!

Wouldn't it be a lot easier to just enjoy your trusty Netgear?

RiversideAndy
March 28th, 2010, 09:34 AM
I could, but it's really annoying having an "appendage" sticking out the side of the laptop. It's been beaten and bent so many times that it is bound to stop working soon!

Man! There are a lot of troubling things here, for example:
ACPI Warning: \_SB_.PCI0.ALKD._CRS: Return type mismatch
ACPI: Unable to set IRQ for PCI Interrupt Link
ACPI Error (uteval-0313): Return object type is incorrectAnd more. It now suggests:
ACPI: Unable to set IRQ for PCI Interrupt Link [ALKD]. Try pci=noacpi or acpi=offIn my experience, this sometimes helps and sometimes hurts. You could try and we can easily reverse it. I suggest removing the previous options in GRUB and substituting acpi=off.

Do you have any IRQ options in your BIOS? How are they set? Please see attached.

Very limited options in BIOS. No ACPI options.

I am sorry I could not be more help. I have no more ammo.
