Thread: hardy ipw3954 issue?

  1. hardy ipw3954 issue?

    This is a test laptop, i performed in place upgrade.
    After the upgrade, wireless option no longer shown in network options,
    i only have wlan0_rename. I had to disable dhcp and assign static ip,
    and load using modprobe iwl3954 manually. I also had to run iwconfig
    manually, only then could I use my wireless card.
    The ipe3954 driver is not listed in restricted driver manager.
    Any one knows a better "automated" solution? is ipw3954 still supported?

    I would speculate it's a problem that is of the nature of the beta
    release. Place the module name iwl3954 in /etc/modules and put up with the
    other issues until the problem is resolved in a future beta or release
    candidate.
