I have an ipw2200 bg. I can't make it work under FreeBSD 7 on AMD64.
This is the output of pciconf -lv
none0 at pci0:0:5:0: class=0x028000 card=0x27028086 chip=0x42208086
vendor = 'Intel Corporation'
device = 'MPCI3B driverIntel PRO/Wireless 2200BG'
class = network
dmesg shows the following:
pci0: <network> at device 5.0 (no driver attached)
I tried to instal the iwi-firmware from ports:
===> iwi-firmware-2.4_8 is configured with iwicontrol(8) which you
don't need, use 'make rmconfig' and uncheck CONTROL.
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/net/iwi-firmware.
I tried the suggested workaround, but I got:
===> No user-specified options configured for iwi-firmware-2.4_8
I tried with pkg_add -r iwi-firmware-2.4_8 and I got
Error: FTP Unable to get
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
pkg_add: unable to fetch
My ports are up to date (cvsup.de.FreeBSD.org)
So... How can I make the wireless card work?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
