Unhappy Intel 3945 Wireless Help


Hi Guys,
Need some help with wireless....
After struggling for over a week I successfully compiled and installed wireless network card(Intel 3945ABG) on my Toshiba M100 with Fedora 5.
I have 2 problems here:
1. I have to compile and load the service everytime I re-start the system.
2. The signal strength drops to "null" every 2-3 mins and comes back after 5 mins.
Is there any way were I can make the wireless service to load automatically at start-up....something like start-up program in "Windows" or creating a batch file

I think that this is possible in Fedora Core 5 -

add every line of code you need to enter to make it work into the file at /etc/rc.local. This is a multiuser start up script that is ( or should be) run at boot up. Hope this helps.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
