Hi, for the people with the 3945
If that does not work then try this please:
I am not on much right now, I am helping someone with a guide for the forum.
I have the oh-so-dreaded Intel 5100 AGN inside my HP Pavilion dv7 laptop.
I was able to connect to my AP on my cell phone just fine, but had trouble, after the upgrade to 11.10, connecting to my also dreaded, Linksys WRT54G.
Disabling "n" capabilities on the card did not help matters. Downgrading to a 2.6.32 kernel did not help either.
What DID help was replacing "NetworkManager" with "wicd". That worked on both the old and new kernels WITH "n" capabilities enabled on the card.
Given my performance observations of the two kernels, however, I will DEFINITELY be sticking with the 2.6.32 kernel. It is WAY faster and I don't see the occasional hangs that I had been experiencing on a couple different boxes running the 3.0.0 kernel.
I hope this saves some poor sole the aggravation I went through.
an update ...
It would appear that a recent update now has the 3.0.X kernel working with my wireless and NetworkManager without having to use wicd. Strangely, the 2.6.X kernel still requires wicd to connect to my AP.
found a solution at http://bugzilla.intellinuxwireless.o...ug.cgi?id=2325
Code:rmmod iwlagn modprobe iwlagn bt_coex_active=0
Thank you esaloch, that seemed to do the trick.
I made it permanent by editing the iwlagn.conf file
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlagn.conf
and adding the line:
options iwlagn bt_coex_active=0

When trying the above solution I get an error message:
Is there a work around this?Code:rmmod iwlagn ERROR: Removing 'iwlagn': Operation not permitted
