Please try the current rawhide kernels.


Do these resolve the issue for you?
Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2007-10-01 09:13:25 EDT
With kernel-2.6.23-0.214.rc8.git2.fc8 the card associates, but I had to kill
NetworkManager and set up the connection by hand. The connection stayed up for
some 20 hours (mostly very light traffic), after that I had to rmmod iwl3945 and
start it again as it got messed up. With current NetworkManager
(0.7.0-0.3.svn2914.fc8) it seems to work.
Comment 3 John W. Linville 2007-10-01 10:34:20 EDT
Closing as RAWHIDE based on the last sentence of comment 2.
