iwlwifi firmware

September 11, 2009 — BarryK
Forum member lluamco reported that later firmware is needed for the iwlwifi wireless driver for the kernel.

It is /usr/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode

I have put this into the firmware tarball, also left in the older firmware.

I have modified /etc/modules/firmware.dep., added "iwlagn.ko" onto this line:

Barry, the whole Intel wifi firmware collection needs an overhaul. We need all 5 firmware files from The iwl3945 module is still a standalone module, but there is no longer a standalone iwl4965 module. It's been incorporated within the iwlagn module, which also supports the 5000AGN and WiFi Link 1000/6000/6050 devices. And standby, there are a few other firmware files required for newly introduced wifi modules with 2.6.30. I will investigate further when I can.
