Get wireless to work BLFS

I,m trying for the 1st time in BLFS to get wireless working, LSPCI
 04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
[Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
I have been through the kernel and enabled the Parts for Intel wireless devices. As far as I can tell. IWCONFIG
Warning: Driver for device wlan0 has been compiled with version 22
of Wireless Extension, while this program supports up to version 20.
Some things may be broken...

wlan0     IEEE 802.11abg  ESSID:off/any
          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=0 dBm
          Retry limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:on

sit0      no wireless extensions.
