Could anybody please confirm that the ipw2200 driver works for that card?

Yes, it does. You should always use Intel's latest stable version, though, and not whatever happened to come with the distribution kernel you're using. Usually the very latest development drivers from Intel are good as well.

Difference to 2200?

Is it correct, that the only difference between 2200 and 2915 is the 802.11a which is supported by 2915? Does the possible a-mode needs more power (so a 2915 needs more than a 2200 while connected to the same g-network)? --Zhenech 14:18, 11 May 2007 (CEST)

Does this card really work in an X24?

I bought a card from a parts distributer, Option 27K9936, but after installing it, Windows finds the card and installs the drivers but says "This device cannot start (10)". I have tried both the latest Intel and IBM supplied drivers, and neither seem to help. I have also tried updating to the latest BIOS version as well.

Card habitually loses connection unlss using WEP

I've just got an X32 with this card installed, latest drivers on XP Pro SP3. It frequently loses connection with a Linksys WRT54G router using anything but WEP. Wondering if anyone else has encountered unreliability with this card for more sophisticated encryption protocols (WPA, WPA2)? Thanks.... -- Davidspalding 14:48, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I use this card in my X31, which is the same machine except for the CPU, running Fedora 10 and it works with no encryption, WEP, WPA and WPA2 without any problem. Maybe its a problem between the router and your System or a Problem of Windows/Drivers. --BDKMPSS 17:48, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
