Default Intel wireless NIC 3945ABG doesn't work under Hardy (with latest patches)

Hi all

Anybody can connect with a Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card to encrypted
(WPA/AES) AP?

See bug #221633 on Launchpad. Any workarounds?

regards
Sven

It's probably not much help, but I never got it to work on my system
after multiple attempts at following advice found on the net. However,
it was obvious from forum entries that other people had been successful.

I tried latest versions of Fedora, Mandriva, Dream Linux, Linux Mint,
Vector Linux, Open SUSE, and Open Solaris. Couldn't get wireless to work
in any of them.

I then installed Xubuntu where it worked out of the box. No idea why
the difference, and since it now works I've not looked any further.
However, it CAN be made to work. I just hope you don't need to reinstall
as many distros as I did to find how to do it. (Actually, the wireless
wasn't the reason I loaded up so many distros. That was for a different
reason).

Good luck with it,
See ya,
Ken McLennan

Yes, I can connect dependably.

On May 29, in this list, I posted a message "Heads up for people with
Wireless in Hardy, especially Intel Wireless IPW adapters" If you
google that sentence, it will find it for you. I do not know the
"authoritative" way to refer you to the archive of this email list.

I can tell you, however, that it only worked after upgrading the iwl
drivers from the Hardy backport collection.

Also, the NetworkManager program released with 8.04 is not quite up to
snuff, and the newer testing version actually works beautifully.
