    Re: Intel 3945 wireless not working

    Thanks to everyone who tried to help me with my wireless problem. I finally gave up and bought an external USB wi-fi dongle. It turns out that I think there is something physically wrong with the built in wi-fi Intel 3945 that my laptop comes with. This is a laptop that was handed down to me in an effort to see if I could fix it as it was at one point completely broken (problems with the power). I eventually fixed it and it now runs great except for the wi-fi. I came to the conclusion that the actual Intel 3945 Wi-Fi card is broken because eventually when I would boot into Windows I began to loose my connection whereas originally it used to run ok but with Linux Mint it never even worked. Because it began to drop the connection even in Windows I came to the conclusion that the Wi-Fi card must be broken so I decided to just buy an external one and now everything is fine.
    My problem has been solved by me replacing the faulty part so I assume that I should mark this thread as "solved". If anyone thinks otherwise let me know, otherwise I will mark it as "solved" within two days.

    Thanks again

    All I know is that I know nothing....
