Ok figured that out. It's not going to work since the bois is a phoenx and not developed by toshiba. http://memebeam.org/toys/ToshibaAcpiDriver

I did an lspci and got this

03:00.0 Network Controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 4222 (rev 02)

So i'm guessing that it means the wireless card is turned on?

Yes, that means that the wireless card is on and responding to querys. Did you install your drivers via RPM or by building from source?

You'll need to insert the module. . . insmod ipw3945 will do it IIRC. The detailed version is in this thread somewhere I think. It sounds like it's not finding the module so it doesn't know that your hardware is there.

Ok i think i know what the problem is.

Quote:
Now, once you have installed all rpms successfully, ur done...do this
#depmod -a
#modprobe ipw3945 <- this loads the module.
to chk if its done do ...
#dmesg | grep ipw <- this should list the driver detected.
#lsmod <- this should list the driver detected. look for ipw3945
OK now finally...
#ps -C ipw3945 <- this should list the ipw3945d deamon running ...
this means its running successfully and got loaded.
else try,
#/sbin/ipw3945d to start it ...
thats it,
now #system-config-network &
select FILE>NEW>WIRELESS>FORWARD>SELECT UR DRIVER NOW LISTED> FORWARD> COMPLETE THE CONFIGURATION
i.e. add ur essid, key etc and ok
U R DONE ...
When i did modprobe ipw3945 i would get mod not found, when i first read this i was thinking that when it says else try /sbin/ipw3945d, but that's just the deamon only and not the drivers. I think i just need to try to reinstall it

My System Configuration:-
Intel Centrino CORE DUO Processor, 1 GB RAM, Nvidia 256MB geForce Go 7400, 100GB SATA HDD,Intel pro 3945abg wireless card in all its a HP dv5000 series laptop released with core duo proc recently.

This laptop supports any linux kernel ver >2.6.x, in fedora only FC5 and above are supported. I have chked it. It detects almost all h/w even wireless if its intel 2200bg and not above u have to manually install it.
Make sure u install the SMP kernel and devel versions only for duo proc.
Also please update ur kernel version to either 2.6.16.2080 or above.

install the following rpms and reboot ur system
kernel-smp-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5.i686.rpm
kernel-smp-devel-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5.i686.rpm
kernel-kdump-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5.i686.rpm

Once done with it, install the following rpms-
ieee80211-1.1.13-10.rhfc5.at.i386.rpm
ieee80211-kernheaders-1.1.13-10.rhfc5.at.i386.rpm
ieee80211-kmdl-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5smp-1.1.13-10.rhfc5.at.i686.rpm
ipw3945-0.0.74-4.rhfc5.at.i386.rpm
ipw3945d-1.7.18-1.at.i386.rpm
ipw3945-firmware-1.13-1.noarch.rpm
ipw3945-kmdl-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5smp-0.0.74-4.rhfc5.at.i686.rpm
ipw3945-ucode-1.13-1.at.noarch.rpm
now reboot ur system ....

Now, once you have installed all rpms successfully, ur done...do this
#depmod -a
#modprobe ipw3945 <- this loads the module.
to chk if its done do ...
#dmesg | grep ipw <- this should list the driver detected.
#lsmod <- this should list the driver detected. look for ipw3945
OK now finally...
#ps -C ipw3945 <- this should list the ipw3945d deamon running ...
this means its running successfully and got loaded.
else try,
#/sbin/ipw3945d to start it ...
thats it,
now #system-config-network &
select FILE>NEW>WIRELESS>FORWARD>SELECT UR DRIVER NOW LISTED> FORWARD> COMPLETE THE CONFIGURATION
i.e. add ur essid, key etc and ok
U R DONE ...
its up and running , do #ifconfig it should show it running....displays its address and other details....

u can also use iwconfig eth1 essid <xxx> -> look man pages for this i havent tried it out...

You can use this method for most of intel drivers ...
here are a few useful links -

Hello,

I'm trying to follow the steps, but on Fedora Core 6. I think I have found the equivalent packages, but when I try to install them, I get a failed dependecy error:

/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.19-1.2911.6.3.fc6 is needed by ieee80211-kmdl-2.6.19-1.2911.6.3.fc6-1.2.16-17.fc6.at.i686

Any ideeas?

Thanks a lot

Okay, things have apparently changed. I just updated my install, and had to change some packages around.

Here is my current list of packages:
Code:
livewire@lwmobile:~$ rpm -qa | grep 3945
ipw3945-firmware-1.13-1.fc6.rf
ipw3945d-1.7.22-4.fc6.rf
dkms-ipw3945-1.2.0-1.fc6.rf
A little easier to deal with

You still need the service. Save the following as "/etc/init.d/ipw3945d".
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# $Id$
#
# Init file for IPW3945 regulatory daemon
#
# chkconfig: 345 13 87
# description: Intel Pro Wireless 3945 regulatory daemon
#
# processname: ipw3945d
# pidfile: /var/run/ipw3945d.pid

# Source function library.
. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

# Source networking configuration.
. /etc/sysconfig/network

# Check that networking is up.
[ ${NETWORKING} = "no" ] && exit 0

RETVAL=0
prog=ipw3945d
OPTIONS="--quiet --timeout=-1"

start()
{
        echo -n $"Starting $prog: "
        daemon /sbin/ipw3945d $OPTIONS
        RETVAL=$?
        echo
        [ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/$prog
}

stop()
{
        echo -n $"Stopping $prog: "
        killproc /sbin/ipw3945d
        RETVAL=$?
        echo
        [ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && rm -f /var/lock/subsys/$prog
}

case "$1" in
        start)
                start
                ;;
        stop)
                stop
                ;;
        restart)
                stop
                start
                ;;
        condrestart)
                if [ -f /var/lock/subsys/$prog ]; then
                        stop
                        start
                fi
                ;;
        status)
                status /sbin/ipw3945d
                RETVAL=$?
                ;;
        *)
                echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart|condrestart|status}"
                RETVAL=1
esac
exit $RETVAL
Make sure to set it to start on boot.

Thanks, it works now. I've just rebooted it when it didn't work and now it does. I ignored the error I told you about and forced rpm to install. For some reason, I don't need the script that you sent. Everything works for me without it.

Interesting, I still need the service it creates. Ah well. You might want to avoid forcing installs. Unresolved dependancies can creep up on you when you least expect it and cause very strange instabilities. . . other than that, good luck
