Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b
Hi! I'm working with Linux Live cd in a windows xp notebook. The linux os does not automatically recognize the wireless adapter. Could you please let me know your thoughts on this? The ifconfig -a command does not show the adapter. Someone told me that I would need to download a program and compile the windows driver into the linux kernel. Thanks in advance. With regards. Dami?n
