Ipw2200 needs updating

If network manager does not solve the problem, the first step should be to see which driver your wireless card needs.

You can see also what are the hardware vendor and reference, it may be useful later on.

Here is an answer that says there is no wireless adapter and another one which is nicer, "wlan0" is what we are looking for (it may have other names): Drivers or firmwares are also needed, most of them are available in the Mageia repositories (Core and Nonfree), if you have an internet connection (a wired one), there is no problem, Mageia will fetch what it needs automatically.

If you are automatically assigned an IP address, use the Configuration box to select DHCP. Such cards are listed on the WPA Supplicant Web site.

Otherwise, select Static IP Address, and enter the details of your network in the boxes. Common drivers that support WPA include ipw2200, ipw2100, and madwifi.

If nothing is returned, your card is either not supported or the driver is not included in Ubuntu.

You should refer to the Ubuntu Forums for further support.

This information is used to know which wireless chipset you have, and gather specific information about that chipset and required firmware.

See #rfkill for more details In some cases you might also see your wireless device listed multiple times, and one is blocked and the other one is not.

See here how to configure the repositories if necessary: Software_management#Configure_media_sources_for_install_and_updates But if you haven't any internet connection, you must install the needed drivers from a CD or a USB stick.

See the troubleshooting section below to know the more common drivers.

For a high-level overview, the basic steps are always as follows: -v for verbosity is important!
