Problem for Intel pro wireless 3945


Dear All,

I have a HP dv2000 notebook. It is using Intel pro wireless 3945.
I installed FC5 and the driver from http://ipw3945.sourceforge.net/.

I am using the steps showed is this website:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...=wireless+dell
and
http://www.clip.dia.fi.upm.es/~cocho...Ipw3845install

After I get the following error, it repeat again and again:
ipw3945: ipw3945.ucode load failed: Reason -2
ipw3945: Unable to load firmware: -2
ipw3945: ipw3945.ucode load failed: Reason -2
ipw3945: Unable to load firmware: -2

Check to see if there are any files named ipw3945fw in the directory /lib/firmware. If not, get them from the Fedora Project
