    Did you remember to select the iwl5000 in the config? Here are the iwl part of my config.

    Code:
    CONFIG_IWLWIFI=m
    CONFIG_IWLCORE=m
    CONFIG_IWLWIFI_LEDS=y
    CONFIG_IWLWIFI_RFKILL=y
    CONFIG_IWLAGN=m
    CONFIG_IWLAGN_SPECTRUM_MEASUREMENT=y
    CONFIG_IWLAGN_LEDS=y
    CONFIG_IWL5000=y
    I couldn't get the compat-wireless project files to compile with
    CONFIG_IWL5000=y
    CONFIG_IWLWIFI_RFKILL=y
    set in the config.mk file. Or any other of the options. So seems I'll be going 2.6.27 at least a bit longer.

    ...
    Yes, I did. The device is being recognized but gets mysteriously disabled (see my syslog record from an earlier post in this thread). What's your hardware, Kim?

    Have you tried the 32 bit version? Maybe it's only a 64 bit problem. Not easy to tell since almost everyone in this thread have not said anything about that. I'm running 32 bit.

    Also one small note from an old post. Didn't check my logs at that point, so no idea if it is even related to your problems in any way.

    When you ask about hardware, do you want to know the laptop model or chip-set and such?

    Add: Just remebered that there is also WMI for different laptops that you might have to enable in your config.

    Code:
    CONFIG_ACER_WMI=m
    CONFIG_ASUS_LAPTOP=m
    CONFIG_FUJITSU_LAPTOP=m
    # CONFIG_FUJITSU_LAPTOP_DEBUG is not set
    # CONFIG_TC1100_WMI is not set
    # CONFIG_HP_WMI is not set
    CONFIG_MSI_LAPTOP=m
    # CONFIG_COMPAL_LAPTOP is not set
    CONFIG_SONY_LAPTOP=m
    CONFIG_SONYPI_COMPAT=y
    CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI=m
    So you might just need to enable the right one (probably CONFIG_COMPAL_LAPTOP in your case)

    No I haven't tried. I'm running 64 bit. Worth a thought, but would require a complete re-install...

    Possible. I did download the sources for compal-laptop but reading the sources, this thing only provides getters and setters for the radio states that are accessed by a GUI tool.

    But if you are having trouble with the rf killswitch, give it a go. Just a recompile with one more config option enabled.

    Getters and setters for radio states is kinda what you want. Since it is C it is not OO and then the getters and setters might work on the wifi hw (not variables in an object). So you can set the rfkill on the wifi card. (Or it might work in a completely different fashion, not gone into detail of how it works)

    Think this might your last chance of getting it to work on 64 bit (or maybe at all). At least for now.

    Re: Intel Wireless Wifi Link 5100 on Hardy

    Ok as far as compilation is concerned I'm not particularly experienced, I'm having the same issues as you and have had no luck. I'm using the Samsung Q310. Unfortunately neither my ethernet or my wifi is working. I'm looking to upgrade the kernel but I have no net connection, i am dual booting vista and ubuntu so I can still use the laptop and download stuff on to the shared disk...

    I have the intel link 5100 card. I have installed the firmware, I have also tried to use ndiswrapper, this says the hardware is detected but still doesn't use it.

    I really dont know how to compile or configure the kernel. Just about everything that has been said so far has gone over my head...

    If someone has a way to get the Marvell Yukon ethernet that would just be a start, at least I could get some sort of internet connection...

    Thank you in advance.
    Dave.

    @wolframarnold:

    I also have a Compal JHL90 (not rebranded) with Intel WiFi Link 5100AGN and running Kubuntu 64bit (with KDE4). Everything installed just fine out of the box, except the gfx, wireless and hotkeys. I got gfx working by following standard procedure (restricted modules and such). Even installing compiz and emerald was a breeze.

    And following your steps I got the wireless working except for the killswitch. The hotkeys are also on my todo list, but not that important to me.

    So ... thanks for the info!

    [edit]Too good to be true. One reboot later and it seems I have the same problem as you. My card did work though before the reboot and before I touched the killswitch. I will look into this and post back if I fixed it.[/edit]

    Re: Intel Wireless Wifi Link 5100 on Hardy

    Code:
    *-network
           description: Wireless interface
           product: Intel Corporation
           vendor: Intel Corporation
    I thought I'd try this but mine came up differently, I've loaded the driver and everything. After the *-network it says UNCLAIMED/UNCLASSIFIED, I can't remember for the moment, I'm on my vista partition, so its difficult to be sure . Has anyone else seen this?

    Re: Intel Wireless Wifi Link 5100 on Hardy

    Hello everyone,

    I guess you can add me to the list of Compal JHL90 (Sager) owners w/ disabled Intel WiFi 5100's.

    I've tried Intrepid alpha 5, doesn't detect the 5100. Due to other problems (i.e. shutdown), I've downgraded back to 64-bit Hardy.

    I have a zd1211rw-based USB adapter, as a backup. compat-wireless solved the bugginess of the default zd1211 driver (no detection), but wouldn't detect the 5100 on kernel 2.6.24-19 or -21.

    I tried KernelCheck to update to 2.6.26.3, and still no progress. Then I selected the development patch, to 2.6.27-rc5. Now, both the 5100 and zd1211 are disabled. I'm pretty sure I entered correct info into the kernel config.

    I'm in Vista atm; I remember in the system log and dmesg about repeating messages for the PCI address of the 5100 adapter and iwlagn/iwl4965.

    EDIT:
    dmesg (syslog is similar)
