To get the latest version for newer kernels, use the firmware git tree instead. I made everything you said but when I do a “make” on the step 8 8. For older chips, there are other drivers:. They still are under heavy development. Make sure you have linux-headers Having downloaded it, we need to download the patches for the iwlwifi drivers only for 2. The laptop is a second hand T60 m.

Intel 4965AGN: linux incompatibility.

Then do a “tar xvf” for the iwlwifi driver. Also, there are still errors in this driver; for example, on my T61, it requires network manager to be installed and I have to do an “ifdown wlan0” and “ifup wlan0” after I log in.

You need to make sure that your kernel configuration includes these options. And that’s it for the most part, try a “modprobe ipw” and see if it works.

I used it as Wifi once, dont remember how with ndiswrapper?? This page is deprecated, updated documentation can be found here. I have debian 2. If you are running a distro-supplied kernel, and find that these options are not configured as described here, then you will need to recompile your kernel with these options corrected.


I can see there’s a lot of information out there on compiling kernels and stuff, but I’m just having a hard time connecting the dots.

I think it would be even better if you used the older driver, because it’s more stable than iwlwifi, which is still under heavy development. To get the latest version for newer kernels, please use the firmware git tree instead.

We appreciate all feedback, but cannot reply or give 496a5gn support. For older chips, there are other drivers:. Invalid module format debian: The driver patch not needed for 2.

Also note that using 40MHz and not 20MHz channel bandwidth will increase the probability to suffer from platform noise since more frequencies might impact the Wi-Fi performance.

It’s kinda a pretty manual approach, but thanks to that you get the live-cd’s kernel 2.

And here I am. Does it also need the mac sub system? Select all modprobe iwl before one can actually use the module.
