CONFIG_IPW2200: Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG and 2915ABG Network Connection

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IPW2200 has multiple definitions:

Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG and 2915ABG Network Connection found in drivers/net/wireless/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_IPW2200:

Help text

A driver for the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG and 2915ABG Network Connection adapters.

See Documentation/networking/README.ipw2200 for information on the capabilities currently enabled in this driver and for tips for debugging issues and problems.

In order to use this driver, you will need a firmware image for it. You can obtain the firmware from http://ipw2200.sf.net/. See the above referenced README.ipw2200 for information on where to install the firmware images.

You will also very likely need the Wireless Tools in order to configure your card:

It is recommended that you compile this driver as a module (M) rather than built-in (Y). This driver requires firmware at device initialization time, and when built-in this typically happens before the filesystem is accessible (hence firmware will be unavailable and initialization will fail). If you do choose to build this driver into your kernel image, you can avoid this problem by including the firmware and a firmware loader in an initramfs.
