Intel PRO 3945 wireless in testing
I have a new laptop (Dell 1710) on which I installed testing (lenny)
using the netinstall cd on 11th July. The kernel is
2.6.21-2-686(i686). Since the wireless would not work, I downloaded
the ipw3945 module from testing and installed it.
The card is detected but fails to load the module. (The ether network
card was plugged in simltaneously; the latter worked; the wireless
does not work with or without the ethernet plugged in).
I get, from dmesg:
ipw3945.ucode load failed: Reason -2
Could not read microcode: -2
PCI interrupt for device 0000:0C:00.0 disabled
Probe of 0000:0C:00.0 failed with error -2
I have seen a similar message on google but there was no resolution.
