trouble with wireless
I'm new the *nix community and so far loving it, seriously. I am using "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx" and found that apparently my wireless card isn't natively supported by Ubuntu but during system testing it was able to find what it is - "Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)".
From what I can tell by searching, through intel cooperation there is firmware made for this card, which I downloaded the latest version "ipw2200-fw-3.1" and extracted it but that is where I'm stuck. I can't seem to get the firmware to install and can't seem to find directions anywhere that will work for my particular setup.
I also have the driver but through searching have found that the firmware needs to be installed first.

Have you emailed intel? they often put updates on then remove them.

Turns out that I don't need to update the firmware. Had to add the driver which I had thought I already did. It is working now.
