Hi there!

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
    Alex
