This page holds information on how to make additional hardware work on your Thinkpad.

The pages linked here hold instructions for installing or configuring certain drivers to make them work with ThinkPad hardware. For an overview of the drivers themselves please look at the Drivers page.




  • IrDA (How to get IrDA working)


Wireless LAN

  • ndiswrapper for Intel 2200bg (ndiswrapper configuration for intel/pro 2200BG)
  • ipw2100 (native Linux driver for Intel 2100)
  • ipw2200 (native Linux driver for Intel 2200/2915)
  • madwifi (Linux driver for atheros chipsets)
  • orinoco (Linux driver for Hermes/Prism chipsets)
  • hostap (Alternative Linux driver for Hermes/Prism chipsets)
  • wpa_supplicant (How to compile and configure wpa_supplicant)

Additional Hardware

  1. Don't forget that the newer kernels have fancier cpu frequency governors like OnDemand and Conservative that are easy to configure via SysFS. These governors are adequate in many situations and do not require user-space daemons such as cpufreqd, powersaved, or powernowd. Read more about it on the Dynamic Frequency Scaling page.
