NetworkManager not letting me use iwl4965 wireless
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:20 EST
NetworkManager does not let me select wireless. Only wired is available for use.
Steps to reproduce:
Attaching lspci and dmesg outputs.

Can you try to delete the following files? I've encountered issues with 4965
and 3945 when the following files are present. Removing them and letting the
initscript stuff clear it's head has worked in the past.
Before you do this, could you provide the output of:
[hondaman@localhost ~]$ ls /sys/class/net
There was no ifcfg-wlan0, only ifcfg-wlan0.bak, and I removed it.
Rebooted, and NM does not show a wireless option yet.
I just installed the latest koji kernel, and it seems to have fixed my wireless
I have now connected to my WAP!
I've noticed a similar behavior on 126.96.36.199-10.fc7 on x86_64. iwl4965 doesn't
start normally. If you "rmmod iwl4965;modprobeiwl4965" then "ifup wlan0", things
work. Is udev taking too long to set things up based on the startup sequences?

This problem got a lot better for my iwl3945 on F8 after this patch that went
into -37 on October 26th. -10 on F7 is October 19th, so it wouldn't have this
patch. You could try that patch?
188.8.131.52-17.fc7 from koji requires me to rmmod and modprobe iwl4065 but my
wireless does come up. Does it have the patch in question? I am betting Bug
340221 is related or a dupe.
I am downloading 184.108.40.206-19.fc7 now from koji.
-> kernel then since it's a kernel thing
F8 bug is fixed, but same bug is in F7
-20 for F7 is being built now apparently with the patch mentioned above.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=340221 is closed, the patch Warren
mentioned for F8 solved my F7 problems in 220.127.116.11-20.fc7
