[gentoo-user] Wireless intel 4965 howto
Fri, 20 Feb 2009 15:37:11
Is there a working howto of how to get the wireless connection to work?
Its a built-in chipset, intel 4965AG, and it was working with kernel 2.6.24,
but I fail with any kernel newer. 2.6.26 had serious problems with
rfkill-switch, and the only way for me was to unload the driver module,
switch on the wifi-interface, load module again and then it worked. A
little bit clumsy, but it worked.
With 2.6.27 I entirely fail to get any connection at all. The wifi-interface
refuses to accept any ESSID.
So, is there a howto that describes how to get wireless to work? Maybe in a
way so that I switch on the interface and no troubles with rfkill, etc?
Thanks in advance
