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

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.
