    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    The eth1 auto is normal, I think it means the network interface should autoconfigure itself with DHCP (assign IP address etc).

    If you don't have any "ipw" reference in your messagelog this means the driver is not initialized so you probably missed something when following Luca's how-to.

    Follow the procedure again and watch the output carefully when you do the "make" and "make install". You might have had error messages there that you missed when installing the first time.

    Check if you have ipw2200.ko and five ieee80211*.ko files in

    /lib/modules/$(KVER)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/

    The howto mentions they should be in

    /lib/modules/$(KVER)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200 and
    /lib/modules/$(KVER)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ieee80211

    but I noticed the installer in 1.04 defaults to the wireless directory and not the specific ipw2200 and ieee80211 directories (by the way, I replaced the KMISC := line in the Makefile with KMISC := /lib/modules/$(KVER)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/, as the how-to suggests. Although the how-to explains this after the "make" and "make install" instructions, ofcourse you have to do this replacement before the make).

    Check if the files are where I expect them to be using Nautilus or by doing a

    Code:
    ls /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-686/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200*.ko /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-686/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ieee80211*.ko
    
    ieee80211_crypt_ccmp.ko  ieee80211_crypt_tkip.ko  ieee80211.ko
    ieee80211_crypt.ko       ieee80211_crypt_wep.ko   ipw2200.ko
    If the files are not there but are in the ipw2200 and ieee80211 directories, try copying them to the wireless directory and see if that helps: When I had the files in the subdirectories my driver did not load either.

    You might also try a "sudo depmod" and see if that makes Ubuntu find your driver files at boottime.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    I had to reinstall the driver since there was a kernel update from the ubuntu repositories. I noticed the how-to currently says:
    Then install it:
    Code:
    sudo tar xvzf ipw2200-1.0.4.tgz cd ipw2200-1.0.4 make sudo make install
    Now run the remove-old.sh script that comes with the driver package in order to make sure that any old module is deleted.
    It should be the other way around, that is remove the old driver then install :]. Most people should catch it but someone new or reading through it quickly probably won't follow the correct order.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Could someone break the results of this for me? I'm trying to work all the kinks out of my install.

    Code:
    dmesg | grep ieee8
    ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
    ieee80211: eth1: Unknown management packet: 0
    ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'TKIP'
    Im wondering if it has something to do with my earlier posted problem

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Still no luck. I redid the installation, and even hand copied them over. It looks to me like NOTHING is being installed.


    Strange though, I plug in a PCMCIA card and it detects it just fine. (the card itself was bad, but still )

    Now, I AM running the 686 kernel, but I still have the 386 installed as a fallback. Does that matter at all?

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    I use a 2.6.10.5-686 kernel and no problem for me.
    Did you tried my install script ? (seek 1-2 previous pages)
    It work great for me.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    I wasn't having any luck last night until I changed from 2.6.10.5-386 to 686. (Make wouldn't run). Once I installed 686, everything worked perfectly. I uninstalled the 386 kernel, ymmv.

    Thanks for the how-to.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    okay..... still not working. I tried with the newly modified how-to and nadda.

    Emerick, I dl'd your script and it won't run for me. don't know why.


    Here's what's happening now:

    if I type in dmesg | grep ipw I get no output, BUT if I do sudo modprobe ipw2200 THEN do a dmesg I get this:

    Code:
    ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.0.4
    ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2004 Intel Corporation

    Ideas?

    thanks in advance

    Hello! I'm getting an error when trying to compile the driver.

    zith@lapbock:/usr/src/ipw2200-1.0.4$ make
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build SUBDIRS=/usr/src/ipw2200-1.0.4 MODVERDIR=/usr/src/ipw2200-1.0.4 modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    Does anyone know why I get this?

    I had that exact problem and posted it in this very thread here

    Best of luck.
