No udev support for iwl3945?
I am getting stuck trying to determine how to get my wireless card on my dell latitude D630 to be brought up when I enable the radio that controls the card and the bluetooth support.
I have tried "udevadm monitor --environment --kernel --udev" and I only see USB-bluetooth related events (though it is possible I missed something).
The lspci data on the card is:
Here are some problems I am having:
I have tried "auto wlan0" in the /etc/network/interfaces, but this seems to make it more unreliable. I have also tried hot plug settings and also using similar settings with ifplugd with no effect.
I am running Xubuntu Hardy. Kernel:
2.6.24-19-generic #1 SMP
I am running out of ways to diagnose this. Perhaps it is a problem in the iwl3945 driver in the provided ubuntu kernel?
Thanks for any help.
try other drivers?
I know theres: iwl3945, ipw3945, intelwifi or something like that, etc
I KNOW it's on sourceforge somewhere.... intel3945.sourceforge.com or something.
when I was on backtrack2 as my distro, the LEDs never came on until I used the wlanassistant, then they turned on..
sorry,it's still very early here, I'm not completely "there" but as soon as I get into the office I'll post all the correct links, as I had to patch that damn wifi chipset yesterday and kept all the links..
iw3945 is deprecated and I have had issues with it to in the past (stops working after a period of time). iwl3945 is part of iwlwifi, which is the official, but seemingly no better, set of drivers.
hope this helps
By the way I solved this by writing a udev script against bluetooth events. The radio switch governs bluetooth too, so it is a hack but it works.
