In the actual INSTALL directions within the driver from the Intel site, it says to go to /lib/modules/'uname -r'/build/include/linux/autoconf.h but there is no such file. Can anyone tell me where to go for this?
OK you can learn about the commands by reading the man pages for them, from the virtual console or xterm session or google; http://www.google.com/linux ; by typing something like: man modprobe
The first command (cat /proc/modules | grep ipw ) shows that the module is loaded, is is good.
The second (modprobe) command came back to the prompt because there was nothing to do, the module was already loaded.
Since you do have a working Internet connection, they use it to download the ipw2200-firmware rpm package from Dag's site.
Then install it as root from where the file is located by typing something like: rpm -ivh ipw2200-firmware*.rpm
