ip3845 driver problem [Solved]

Postby caedo » Sun Dec 16, 2007 7:51

I´m having some trouble making my computer, Toshiba Tecra, recognize my wireless card, Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG.

I used the documentation in wiki/hardware but when i was emerging the final 2 packages, ipw3945 ieee80211, the emerging failed, showing this message:

After trying this method, I tried to install the ipw3845 driver but wasnt able to do it, i follow step by step the instruction in the INSTALL file but still nothing appeared in iwconfig.

if anyone could help me, thanks.

If using any 3.4e or later the ipw3945 should work with only clicking the knetworkmanager top right next to time and select the wifi network you want to connect to.

Have not yet tried ipw3945 in 1.1PE.

Back to posted info:
* This profile has not been tested thoroughly and is not considered to be
* a supported server profile at this time.


* Checking for suitable kernel configuration options...
* ipw3945-1.2.0 requires support for Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (CONFIG_IEEE80211).
* CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_CCMP: is not set when it should be.
* CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_TKIP: is not set when it should be.


First is server and hardened kernel related or = could be unstable if building a stable kernel server / Gentoo version form SL note "x86" instead of "~x86" in /etc/make.conf .

The second here states that config_ieee...... something is not enabled in the /usr/src/linux/.config or "kernel config" file.
As far as I know it has been replaced with another label not sure about this ieee802.... naming in kernel config.
Or
# cp /proc/config.gz /usr/src/linux

Should copy the current installed kernel config.gz file to normal .config check on correct wording for this.
and then run
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make kernelconfig

Or
# make xconfig
I am lazy so I use text editor after renaming the /usr/src/linux/config that was coppied and adding the =y etc to it.

One is gui and the other is old school config interface , then remove the "#" and add "=y" without the qoute marks similar to others in there then run the emerge ipw3945 .... again.

Might also search the forums for the ieee802... that is not enabled as I helped someone here a few months ago with something similar + might have alternative fix for this.

Ndiswrapper + windows driver in linux =
viewtopic.php?f=52&t=8933

Hope this helps.
