install ipw firmware.
Had to download the firmware from the ipw2200 project page and put the firmware in the /lib/firmware directory. It would then come up fine, but had to edit the wireless configuration file in /etc/rc/d to get it to come up as part of the boot sequence (had to add my router’s essid, encryption key and channel). Wifi radar comes with the system and may have done this, or the system control panel may have, but I’ve been using Slackware or Zenwalk on this system for a while, so I know what to do by hand.
Wifi works flawlessly with WEP encryption, I haven’t tried with WPA. The wireless card works well with Kismet and Airodump but does not support packet injection so cracking WEP keys can take a rather long time.
must load specific kernel modules and firmware to make the driver module work.
then the driver works very well with wpa_supplicant (mode WPA-PSK)
Drivers must be downloaded and installed. Works like a charm after that.
