ipw2200 wireless on linux

Most importantly – how to deal with wireless hardware switch

$ cat /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2200/0000:06:02.0/rf_kill

This code has the following meaning:

  0 = RF kill not enabled (radio on)
  1 = SW based RF kill active (radio off)
  2 = HW based RF kill active (radio off)
  3 = Both HW and SW RF kill active (radio off)

To fix

  • sudo rmmod ipw2200
  • press hardware radio switch
  • sudo insmod /lib/modules/./ipw2200.ko
  • cat /sys/./rf_kill – should have a value of 0
