I have a new core duo laptop with the intel pro/wireless 3945abg card but cannot get it to work. A lot of forums talk about installing the driver, but it appears that with SuSE 10.1 this is already the case, as lsmod is showing:
ieee80211 32968 1 ipw3945
ieee80211_crypt 9728 1 ieee80211
Looking at dmesg, I have found the following problem but cannot find a solution...
<6>ipw3945: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
<3>ipw3945: ipw3945.ucode load failed: Reason -2
<3>ipw3945: Could not read microcode: -2
<4>ipw3945: probe of 0000:02:00.0 failed with error -2
A forum for ubuntu mentions it here (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=837922)
, with the user saying that upgrading udev resolved it. I have the latest version of udev.
Can anyone help me with this. My wired connection isn't long enough and I don't like sitting in my hallway
