Default wireless on HP 6710b Fedora 8 X86_64

Hi,

I think my laptop fitted with Intel Pro 3945 Wireless a/b/g/n hardware. The default F8 installed both

iwl3945-firmware-2.14.1.5-2
iwl4965-firmware-4.44.1.20-1

But the system seems picking up 4965 as showing from


dmesg | grep iw
iwl4965: Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN driver for Linux, 1.2.26kds
iwl4965: Copyright(c) 2003-2008 Intel Corporation
iwl4965: Detected Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN
iwl4965: Tunable channels: 11 802.11bg, 13 802.11a channels

phy0: Selected rate control algorithm 'iwl-4965-rs'

how to let system pick up iwl3945?

Thanks

Y

This should not be necessary -- please use the drivers shipped with
the Fedora kernel if at all possible. Otherwise you are isolating
yourself from the normal support channels.

Are you _sure_ you have the 3945 hardware? It is very unlikely that
the iwl4965 driver would get loaded automatically if you did not have
the corresponding hardware.

Please post the output of running 'lspci'.

Thanks,

John

P.S. FWIW, there is no version of the 3945 that support 802.11n.
