    Toshiba Satellite L10 / Inprocomm IPN 2220 / Driver Installed, Does Not Connect


    Running Lubuntu 12.04.

    I used ndiswrapper in the past to install a wifi driver for a Dell Latitude laptop I owned in the past with no problems. The thing ran perfectly. However, with my current Toshiba Satellite L10, with an Inprocomm IPN 2220 wifi chipset, the driver seems to install fine, but there is no wlan0 being recognized, so I cannot connect to a wireless access point.

    Here's the data. The wired ethernet works fine, as you can see. Also, ndiswrapper shows the driver installed fine:

    ndiswrapper -l
    neti2220 : driver installed
    device (17FE:2220) present

    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    The Toshiba L10 wifi is listed on the supported ndiswrapper devices on the sourceforge wiki, so I am holding out hope.

    What to do?

    I have the same problem!
    Can someone help me?

    Kind regards,

    What more can I check to see if everything is installed correctly?

    Solved it myself!

    I had to change the driver, do not use the which is found everywhere on the net. Problem is that there is only one .inf file, and it picks the wrong .sys file (and you can't make it pick the right one, if I were you I wouldn't try...). it picks the i2220nta.sys version which is for 64-bit. And I have a 32 bit computer and a 32 bit ubuntu version.

    There's a couple of alternative drivers here:

    I have used the ipn2220_32_64_all.tar driver, and then the
    ipn2220_x32ntw2000_mod.inf file.

    Maybe someone will need this...
