    Default Intel(R) Wireless 2200BG windows Driver in Linux?

    I installed opensuse 11.0 on my Sony Vaio VGN FS215m including an Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG. The Wirless shows network but does not connect. I guess the reason is that it can't connect with WPA. Because of that I tried to install the Windows Wireless Driver with ndiswrapper. Modifieing the Kernel with ndiswrapper was no Problem. The installation advices say, that I should install the windows driver with

    ndiswrapper -i /PATH_TO_FILE/FILE_NAME.inf

    The Problem is, that the Driver, wich runs my Wireless in Windows does not include an .inf file. There was the same Problem with Driver I downloaded from the Sony webpage.

    Does anyone know how to install the Driver without .inf file?

    Or do you think the Problem I have with my Wireless is caused by anything else?

    you shouldn't need to use ndiswrapper with Intel wireless devices, they are normally supported natively. Failing that, install the compat-wireless driver, normally works
