SL PE IWL4965 help

Postby justinobwi » Tue Dec 18, 2007 5:11

Hello all,

I just installed SL PE on my new laptop (Sager NP2090) and I do not know what is going on with my wireless card except it is not detected. I think that this is just for SL as wireless works fine on the ubuntu live cd. The catch is I don't want an ubuntu system, I want an SL system. So please help me help you help me...

And here is the output of iwconfig:

The only thing that I have found searching the net and the gentoo forums was one random post stating that there might be an issue with the mac80211 net stack and a different intel internal wireless card. I guess that this could possibly be related, bu that is above my knowledge, and I am reluctant to say this has something to do with my issue since it is a different card.

Any help is appreciated.

I haven't switched, I have a new laptop. I tried 3.4f and it was really slow for me (slower than vista without any hacks).
