I am trying to get my wifi up on this Dell Insoiron 8600 which has an intel 2200 wireless card. I am a new to Linux but have tried to follow some of the help already posted. For a start I have tried to download the correct package from
http://people.slitaz.org/~mojo/stuff/ipw2200-firmware-3.1.tazpkg but the link seems broken. Can someone in simple easy to follow terms point me in the right direction please. I do not wish to critisise and I realise that Slitaz has a tiny footprint but does getting a wireless card to work have to be so hard.

I read all topics about ipw2100 but not solved until now
plz help me to install ipw2100
first open this link http://people.slitaz.org/~mojo/stuff/ipw2200-firmware-3.1.tazpkg
and download this file then extract to folder but i didnt see any file to install (all file not open )
this image contains all file
and another question how to remove protect on folder /lib
sorry i cant upload image:(
plz i want simply method to install ipw2100
It's not an archived file, so you extract it. It's a software package, so you install it by double clicking on the file.
Trixar_za thnx for response but after extracting no file
plz whats the name of this file and extension ?
After extracting the folder contains this file :
fs (folder) + files.list + md5sum + receipt
Then Fs folder contains : lib( folder) + usr (folder)
lib folder : Firmware then contains ipw2200-bss.fw + ipw2200-ibss.fw+ipw2200-sniffer.fw + license.ipw2200-fw
and usr folder contains share folder = license folder = intel-ipw2200 license.txt
which file i can doule clik on it ???
i opened a terminal as root (open sakura or xterm and type "su" and "root") and typed afterwards as root "pcmanfm".in it.
the PCMan File Manager opens as root and you have read/write permissions in all folders.
i copied the files from the extracted lib folder into /lib/firmware/
after thati did modprobe -r ipw2200, modprobe ipw2200 and continued with setting up the wlan as known.
sorry for my bad english. i hope i could help you.
When I read:
It's not an archived file, so you extract it ...
I understand: "something.tazpkg don't have to be extracted"
Stuffs.tazpkg have to be installed, with a double-click on file Stuffs.tazpkg.
Without any extract protocol too (made by user I mean), Stuffs.tazpkg could be installed with CLI.
Are we agree, Trixar_za ?
but i want ask the way or command order to copy files from extract folder to lib/firmware
thnx again boos
but this file Stuffs.tazpkg. dont found in exracting folder
ipw2200-firmware-3.1.tazpkg is a file that the package manager (tazpkg) can install without you has something to do other than:
- open a terminal as root and follow mojo's advices http://forum.slitaz.org/topic/ipw2200-again#post-23341
- or as Trixar_za wrote double click on ipw2200-firmware-3.1.tazpkg
to install it.
In the last case you'll have to open a terminal as root and follow mojo's instructions from
# modprobe -r ipw2200 # modprobe ipw2200 ...

You stopped trying to configure wifi, and we now configure ethernet link, right ?
For installing, you know, I have nothing more precise and more pertinent than other answers on this forum,
they are a lot more experienced than me ...
