Switch off and On to work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
I have an HP pavillion dv9540us, with a intel wireless NIC
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN
Network Connection (rev 61)
I'm using NetworkManager to setup my connections.
When i start the computer and log with my non-superuser i need to switch off and
on the hardware switch in the laptop so NetworkManager finds the device.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This problem isn't related to the firmware part.
Reassigned to NetworkManager
Do you have some usefull informations about what's append when you switch off/on
the radio kill switch ?
( for example a full dmesg output after the tweak)
What command do you use to switch off/on ?
I use the hardware switcher in the front of the laptop.
I will grab the dmesg output and attach to this ticket

Can you try with recent kernels from F8/rawhide? There was a kernel bug #349981
recently that causes iwl4965 and iwl3945 to not even show up. That's probably
Everything its working fine after the last updates.
closing then, thanks
