    We'd love to see these terminal commands:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep wlan0
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    Thanks.

    Have you done:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-hardy-generic
    What are your specific issues? Just unable to connect?

    Re: ubuntu 8.04 iwl3945 problems

    that iwl3945 module cant load
    I doubt it, but I guess anything is possible. Let's check to be sure:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep iwl3945
    If a lot of text comes back, like this:
    Code:
    iwl3945                93940  0 
    iwlwifi_mac80211      219108  1 iwl3945
    led_class               6020  1 iwl3945
    Then it's loaded.

    Do you have an active wired ethernet connection? Network Manager will not activate wireless, if wired is available: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...NetworkManager If you reboot with the wire detached, is your wireless available to be configured?

    May we please see:
    Code:
    sudo cat /var/log/messages | grep switch
    i have some problems with me wifi card for 2 mounth now
    Please do not wait two months before you consult us. We are here to help.

    i just notice that
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-hardy-generic
    made the kill switch led work as was promised somewhere, but that was all.

    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    lists all networks and infos, but i cant find a way to see any network in the network manager or anywhere else so i could connect to them

    Do you see your wireless interface in System -> Administration -> Network after you unlock? Is the Enable this connection box checked? It needs to be unchecked for Network Manager to manage your connection.

    i noticed that. i've tried with roaming mode (wireless interface unchecked) and with configuring my wlan by checking the interface and giving ssid/password there. neither works..
