    I ran this gedit /etc/modprobe.d/ipwraw and then added a # before bleclistiwl3945

    Open a terminal. Type:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modules
    Give your passwrord. A text editor will appear with the file in it. Make the changes I requested. Proofread your work. If you are old and half-blind like me, proofread it twice. Press 'Save' and close gedit. Go on to the other changes we need the same way.
    Im a big newbie
    No prob. We are all learning, even old gray-bearded Chili.
    Code:
    cat /etc/modules
    Please post the result when you enter this in a terminal and press that magic 'Enter' key.

    I think i sussed it.

    I ran sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and added a # before blacklist.

    I then ran sudo gedit cat /etc/modules then added ipwraw

    then saved thrm both then quit.

    Was I correct to do so??

    Please have a think back to what it was like when you first stated out with Ubuntu...

    This is how i feel..

    This ones perfect...

    Almost perfect. In /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist you need to make sure that:
    Code:
    blacklist iwl3945
    appears without a #. Please check and edit if needed.
    I then ran sudo gedit cat /etc/modules then added ipwraw
    It is not sudo gedit cat /etc/modules. It is:
    Code:
    sudo gedit  /etc/modules
    Try again. As long as ipwraw is in there, on its own line, without any #, then you are fine. Reboot and then, in a terminal, run:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep iwl
    Puh-leeeeeeeeeeze tell me what happens!

    Bedtime. I will check on you first thing tomorrow.

    Re: How to Blacklist iwl3945 driver correctly, and replace/whitelist it with ipwraw??

    This is what I got from the 'lsmod | grep ipw' cmomand

    also this is what I got from the 'lsmod | grep iwl' command

    after a reboot:

    mark@ubuntu:~$ lsmod | grep ipw
    ipwraw 125848 0

    mark@ubuntu:~$ lsmod | grep iwl

    Here is the output from the 'cat /etc/modules' command

    mark@ubuntu:~$ cat /etc/modules
    # /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
    #
    # This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
    # at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

    fuse
    lp
    sbp2
    ipwraw

    mark@ubuntu:~$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/ipwraw
    #blacklist ipwraw
    mark@ubuntu:~$ lsmod | grep iwl
    mark@ubuntu:~$

    And when I type this command into the terminal 'lsmod | grep iwl'

    I get nothing show up just a new prompt?

    It looks like this:

    mark@ubuntu:~$ lsmod | grep iwl
    mark@ubuntu:~$

    Has it gone according to plan?? was it successful?

    I look forward to your replies tomorow?

    Thank's agian Chili...

    It sure looks like it to me. The new driver is loading and the old driver is not loading. You have a wireless interface, wifi0 that goes into monitor mode.

    I know nothing about packet injection so I can't help you there. Your original objective, to kick iwl3945 out and to load ipwraw is working.
