Question 4965 agn and Gutsy

I've bought some days ago a laptop with the 4965 agn wifi from intel

Gutsy detected automatically my card,no problem @ all

BUT I am experiencing some little probs....

(1) I am connecting to my WiFi router as long as it hasn't hidden ssid . If I hide the ssid I can't connect to my router.I haven't used the network manager.What I did was to manually edit the interfaces file based on this GREAT tutorial.

(2) I am having problems with kismet as you can see here

(3) Doing an lsmod gave me this

george@george-laptop:/etc/kismet$ lsmod | grep iwl
iwl4965               101480  0 
iwlwifi_mac80211      175112  1 iwl4965
cfg80211                7304  1 iwlwifi_mac80211
Does the 0 (zero) there mean that iwl4965 (which is my wifi's card driver) isn't loaded?

Anyone else experiencing any of those?
Any help?

same problem

I'm having trouble too. exact same output from lspci. I don't see my wifi card in nm-applet.

It is strange because i've had the wifi working since gutsy came, without any big issues, and now it's just gone.

Wish i could help you.. but i'm kinda helpless here myself.
