This should be available in 18.104.22.168-50.fc8 (and probably thereafter):
Give that a try and report the results here? Thanks!
Tried out i586 since it looked like i686 wasn't done building, and it's working
Thanks for the quick fix.
kernel-22.214.171.124-50.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
Unfortunately, 126.96.36.199-50 doesn't work too, but obviously for another reasons,
the association is just timed out (I'll attach my dmesg output). When I try to
setup the connection manually (i.e. I stop the NM and type "ifup wlan0"), I get:
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; No such file or directory.
I didn't touch anything manually, except that after an upgrade to 188.8.131.52-34 I
renamed wlan0_rename back to wlan0 (under /etc/sysconfig/...).
The last working (concerning wireless) kernel for me is still 184.108.40.206-137.

output of dmesg
My English is not so good but I try to explain my problem
the last time my wireless card (iwl3945) worked was with the kernel 126.96.36.199-12.fc8
since kernel 188.8.131.52-34.fc8 I get maybe after hours of testing a connection
and my /var/log/messages was 1,1GB big so I deleted it and doesn't used my
intern wlan card
instead I used my external wlan card (rtl8187) but not with the driver which
comes with the kernel because this driver doesn't support ad-hoc mode, i used
the driver from this howto:
now all was ok
after kernel update to 184.108.40.206-50.fc8
I tested my intern wlan card again and it is all the same like with the
at the moment my /var/log/messages is 178,8 MB big but at the time I don't used
my iwl3945 card it was always less than 1MB
I added the output of dmesg there is written the same which makes my
/var/log/messages so big
on the last lines you can see that the other wlan card works
i have my terminal set to 4000 lines that's why you can't see the beginning of dmesg
I want to use my intern wlan card again because our other computer has no wlan
please fix this bug
Jann, that is a different issue as well. Please open a new bug for
The last working kernel for iwl3945 is 220.127.116.11-12. I have the same problems
with 18.104.22.168-64 (I'm using ad-hoc mode if it matters)
