    Angry Intel Wireless 4965 UNCLAIMED on Karmic

    Hello all,

    I just changed out the Broadcom wireless card in my Dell Mini 9 for the Intel 4965. I expected it to go smoothly because I was under the impression that this card worked with Ubuntu 9.10 out-of-the-box, and I'm still not quite sure if that impression was correct. I uninstalled the Broadcom drivers after booting up with the Intel card and after noticing that my Intel card wasn't being picked up, I reinstalled network manager. I also tried
    Code:
    sudo modprobe iwl4965
    which returned nothing and didn't change the problem. I decided to try booting from my live stick, and it worked! The card was recognized and performed beautifully. So, I decided to just go ahead and reinstall Ubuntu (just my "/" partition), and again, the card worked. After rebooting, the card was not seen again...I went ahead and did a full os reinstall and it still isn't seen...I've searched high and low but haven't found anything yet that has worked for me. I'm pretty new to Linux, so please bear with me. I hope someone can help me figure this out soon! Thanks! Other info:

    So I suppose the problem lies within the fact that the Network is Unclaimed...

    So everything I've read tells me that the necessary drivers have been present since kernel 2.6.24. I am using the latest kernel and tried loading the modules myself...

    What am I missing?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you...

    I have the same problem since I switched from 9.04 to 9.10 about 1 month ago. I have tried all the suggestions I could find on the web, but without any result. I hope someone will come up with a solution soon. Sorry, but I cannot help you.

    This is clearly the issue. I have googled it and not seen anything suggesting a fix.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with swapping out the card.
    I just changed out the Broadcom wireless card in my Dell Mini 9 for the Intel 4965.

    Thank you both for your replies.

    Yes, the Broadcom card worked fine, but I "upgraded" to the Intel 4965, as it had space for another antenna as well as support for packet injection (it would be great to use my dell mini for that).

    What stumps me is that the card WORKED when I booted from USB live stick, but after a subsequent reinstall, the card is "UNCLAIMED" and

    Code:
    [5.861078] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: EEPROM not found, EEPROM_GP=0x90000000
    [5.861086] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: Unable to init EEPROM
    What gives? Thanks again for your help...

    Re: Will Not Recognize Intel Wireless 4965 on Karmic -Please Help

    So I've been reading some more, and the EEPROM problem has been associated with hardware wireless kill switches before (Fn 2 in my case with the Dell Mini 9). I've never used Fn 2, but after trying to toggle it, there is still no change, the network interface is still "UNCLAIMED."

    Could this help anyone to help me? Please?

    You might try some of the workarounds here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...0?comments=all

    This one looks promising:
    hit the wireless button, then do
    sudo modprobe -r iwl4965
    sudo modprobe iwl4965
