    Did you make sure that you're basically replacing what you have for 2.6.24 with 2.6.22? What you basically want to do is to select the equivalent one for 2.6.22 in place of what you to remove for 2.6.24.

    Code:
    Completely removed the following packages:
    linux-generic
    linux-headers-2.6.24-16
    linux-headers-2.6.24-16-generic
    linux-headers-generic
    linux-image-2.6.24-16-generic
    linux-image-generic
    linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-16-generic
    linux-restricted-modules-common
    linux-restricted-modules-generic
    linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24-16-generic
    
    Installed the following packages:
    linux-headers-2.6.22-14 (2.6.22-14.46)
    linux-headers-2.6.22-14-generic (2.6.22-14.46)
    linux-image-2.6.22-14-generic (2.6.22-14.46)
    linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22-14-generic (2.6.22-14.37)
    Code:
    Installed the following packages:
    linux-restricted-modules-2.6.22-14-generic (2.6.22.4-14.9)
    linux-restricted-modules-common (2.6.22.4-14.9)
    I simply had to take those two steps. Can you tell me if you have all of those installed?

    I just double checked and I'm pretty sure I have everything you listed. However I can't find this version of linux-restricted-modules-common (2.6.22.4-14.9) I only see the .16 version. Here's a screenshot...

    Also, I think you can safely ignore wmaster0.

    I have the same problem on my Dell laptop after searching the forums I finally saw that the new kernel is messed up for our ipw3945 setup. This led me to the solution to revert to the older kernel, and I am now back in business.

    How could they actually revert to common hardware like this not working in a new kernel? This seems like a really big screwup! I have 2 other friends running Ubuntu with Intel wifi, now I am going to advise them to layoff of Hardy until this is fixed.

    I'm glad you got your Hardy working. May I ask if you followed any of my procedure or you found your own way of reverting the kernel?

    I think it will help those who are still having problems if you could tell us how you got it done.

    Re: iwl3945 Not working on Hardy

    I wonder why the wireless connection has becomes an issue because this problem shouldn't happened at first place and this has caused trouble to many people who are using Hardy. I call upon Ubuntu developer people to take action on this problem and come out with the solution ASAP.

    My Intel 3945abg card has worked wonderfully in Gutsy and it broke down in Hardy. To solve this, I installed linux-restricted-modules-generic and I got the Wifi LED working but still couldn't get automatically connected to the wireless network. Then I resorted to use Wifi-Radar and connect to the network manually and I'm connected.

    Is there any way for me connect to the wireless network automatically rather than to use Wifi-Radar? Ndiswrapper is not an option to me because I didn't get it worked. Any ideas??

    Re: iwl3945 Not working on Hardy

    This was definitely a Network Manager problem for me on a Dell Inspiron 9400. Dropping back to older kernels made no difference at all for me.

    After upgrading to Hardy I had no connection and no led.

    So I upgraded the iwl driver

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-hardy-generic
    This cured the led, but I was still struggling to connect to any WEP or WPA encrypted network.

    So I took the plunge and ditched Network Manager and installed Wicd.

    Bingo!

    Wicd works very well indeed for me. So well that I don't see me going back to Network Manager when this bug is finally fixed.

    In order to get Wicd you will need the following line requires adding to your third party repositories

    Code:
    deb http://apt.wicd.net hardy extras

    It was posted here too:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/190346

    Installing Wicd didn't do the job for me .

    I'm going to install the backports-modules now.
    If that doesn't work, I'll try reverting the kernel.

    Edit:

    Omg, it works!
    Only thing I did was installing the backports-modules.
    btw, I'm still using network-manager.
