Wifi Working on My Acer 1642 With Suse 10.2

| Comments

Hi,

phew after lots of search finally my acer 1642 ( view specifications ) laptop with suse 10.2 communication with Access Point. :D

Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG is my wireless card and its detected by suse 10.2 but as i turn my wifi on led is not lightening up and nothing works  as i searched  i found that suse 10.2 includes driver for my wireless lan card but firmware is missing so all i have to do is install proper firmware for my card.

Some forums mentioned that for suse10.2 and Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG card proper firmware is version 3 and all i have to do is download it and extract it into /lib/firmware. Reboot.

After reboot my led lighten up and i installed some packages like knetworkmanager from yast to manage my wireless connections.
