Default iwl3945 does not work with kernel 2.6.23.8-63.fc8.i686

Subject says it all.
The system is slow while trying to connect to the network,
I had to go back to the previous kernel to use wifi again.
Should I file a bugzilla report?

You may need to put your iwl3945 into the new kernel where it can
get it. I have to make a new Nvidia for every new kernel.

Ummmm...no. The iwl3945 driver is built into the kernel.

Christian, please file a bug report. Describe as much about your
wireless situation (encryption, distance from AP, brand of AP if known,
iwl3945-firmware revision, etc).

Thanks,

John

A bug report that may be relevant already exists (and has done since
the 2.6.23.8 kernel packages hit updates-testing):

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=397921

Yes, this bug exactly describes the behaviour of my machine.

Unfortunately, I can't recreate that behavior on my ipw3945-equipped
machine. In fact, -63.fc8 is probably one of the best performing
kernels for wireless on that machine so far.

Some Googling suggested that the problem might be related to using the
wrong rate scaling algorithm. But -63.fc8 has the patches that are
supposed to ensure that you are using the right one with iwl3945 and
iwl4965. You are using -63.fc8? Make sure you try -80.fc8 as well:

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=26862

Otherwise, keep updating the bug above and I'll keep investigating.

Well, -80 does not help, it still shows the 'Microcode SW' errors and
is unable to connect to the AP.

Thanks for caring...

Just for the record: no change with -85.fc8

It's more useful to attach this information to the bugzilla report.
