Last had to get the Intel Centrino wireless going. The chipset I have is the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG. So I just had to get the intel firmware for it and drop it in the /lib/firmware. It's where the 2.6 kernels looks for firmware. The firmware was from the ipw2200 sourceforgeprojects page. After downloading it you should have a file called "ipw2200-fw-2.4.tgz". Untar it into the dir /lib/firmware
"tar xzvf ipw2200-fw-2.4.tgz -C /lib/firmware
Then remove the module if it's running
Theninsert it back in with
Before doing this you might need to install the ieee80211 package with the command
apt-get install ieee80211-source
module-assistant -t build ieee80211-source".
