WiFi/Wireless on Toshiba R830 on Fedora 15

I was not able to use WiFi on Toshiba R830 running Fedora 15. There were missing firmware files for iwl6000g2b adapter. It is very easy to fix it:

# yum install iwl6000g2b-firmware

Then reboot and your Wifi will be running after next boot. :-)

Hi Peter,

thanks a lot for that hint.
This still works for a Fedora 17 with kernel 3.6.2.

Bye,
