I have a dual booted Debian Etch (+WinXp) on dell 630c laptop.
Wifi is working but only seems to support up to 11g rate.
(HW is 11n capable
n the WinXP side seen it can connect at 144Mb/s to an 11n AP)
upgraded to 2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686 kernel (which supported a lot of the HW better than the older 2.6.18 etch kernel, infact a lot of parts of chipset were only recognised by 2.6.24)
as iwlwifi is supported in this kernel I only needed to install firmware-iwlwifi (right?):
so installed it (from Stable) : dpkg output:
ii firmware-iwlwifi 0.4+etchnhalf.1
Does this f/w support 11n on 4965 part or just 11g? If so anyone know where latest f/w for 11n operation is ? (or anything else I've done wrong)
