Bug#667654: iwlwifi: iwl3945: wifi does not initialize
Interestingly on second try the wifi is working altough I still get
this in dmesg:
[ 203.588036] iwl3945 0000:05:00.0: Microcode SW error detected.
[ 203.588044] iwl3945 0000:05:00.0: Error Reply type 0x000002FC cmd
REPLY_SCAN_CMD (0x80) seq 0x446A ser 0x00340000
[ 203.675018] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::radio
[ 203.675589] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::assoc
[ 203.676160] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::RX
[ 203.676745] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::TX
This error repeats itself at 243 seconds, then at 303, then at 383,
then at 483, 603, 723, 843 etc. It migth be related to the times when
network manager scans.
Regardless of these error messages wifi is working now. I'm not sure
about the reason. Last time I tried to use a different wifi.
Please note that this happened with the squeeze kernel on my wheezy/sid system.
