[alpine-user] ipw2200 wireless

Hi,

I have this wireless:
04:02.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG
[Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)

in dmesg I see:
[ 8.070206] libipw: 802.11 data/management/control stack, git-1.1.13
[ 8.070210] libipw: Copyright (C) 2004-2005 Intel Corporation

[ 8.509149] input: PC Speaker as /devices/platform/pcspkr/input/input7


I suppose firmware is missing or is not loaded for other reasons.

I have installed linux-firmware-intel, but mayube it is not enough or
some other config is missing?

Looking at other distribution forums, I should have ipw2200-bss.fw
ipw2200-ibss.fw as firmware, but I do not have.


Thank you.

Riccardo
