Ok, here's what I got this time: [email protected]:~$ dmesg | grep -e ipw -e eth [ 8.580618] eth0: Broadcom 44xx/47xx 10/100Base T Ethernet :3f:dd: [ 8.610976] Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods [ 8.614198] Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods [ 13.196302] ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.2.2kmprq [ 13.196306] ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation [ 13.236567] ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection [ 15.519794] ipw2200: Radio Frequency Kill Switch is On: [ 15.526856] ipw2200: Detected geography ZZA (11 802.11bg channels, 13 802.11a channels) [ 54.418220] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready [ 54.418861] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready [ 123.946123] b44: eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex.[ 123.946132] b44: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX.Maybe I'm stubborn- I want to keep the same OS and familiar interface as long as hitting yourself in the face with a hammer repeatedly.
I wish I knew what I'm doing wrong...:( And I'm waiting for Lucid to come out indeed, I won't bother with Karmic- I'm going to stick to LTS versions only.
Here's what I know: My wireless card is Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection (rev 05), supported in linux only by using a windows driver, ipw2200, which I do have running and installed somehow.
[email protected]:~$ sudo lsmod | grep ipw2200 [sudo] password for shogun: ipw2200 146248 0 ieee80211 35528 1 ipw2200 I also realized I needed ndiswrapper, so I installed that.
I would recommend trying the Live CD option before you do a re-install.
Wait until Lucid Lynx comes out in April Hope some of this helps. This is what I got: [email protected]:~$ rfkill list bash: rfkill: command not found [email protected]:~$ sudo rmmod -f dell-laptop ERROR: Removing 'dell_laptop': No such file or directory [email protected]:~$ sudo rfkill unblock all sudo: rfkill: command not found I'm sorry, I know helping people like me must be like hitting yourself in the face with a hammer repeatedly.
