Thread: Intel 4965AGN wireless fail to connect

  1. #1

    Default Intel 4965AGN wireless fail to connect

    Hi,
    I have a Fujitsu Lifebook e8410 laptop with these specs:
    - Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz
    - MemTotal: 4083536 kB
    - Nvidia GeForce 8400M G
    - Fujitsu 160G HD
    - PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN Network Connection (That's where my headache's coming from)

    When I try to connect to my wireless home network (open wep 128hex key) it fail... here's some info.

    Code:
    uname -a
    Linux FujiLaptop 2.6.25.5-1.1-pae #1 SMP 2008-06-07 01:55:22 +0200 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    As I see the module iwl4965 is loaded

    Code:
    lsmod |grep iwl
    iwl4965               129248  0
    firmware_class         25984  2 microcode,iwl4965
    mac80211              190484  1 iwl4965



    Code:
    dmesg |grep iwl
    
    iwl4965: Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN driver for Linux, 1.2.23ks
    iwl4965: Copyright(c) 2003-2007 Intel Corporation

    iwl4965: TX Power requested while scanning!
    iwl4965: Error sending REPLY_STATISTICS_CMD: time out after 500ms.

    and sometimes at home I have theses messages:

    Code:
    grep iwl /var/log/messages

    Jun  8 17:19:57 linux klogd: iwl4965: Error setting new configuration (-110).
    Jun  8 17:19:58 linux klogd: iwl4965: Error sending REPLY_SCAN_ABORT_CMD: time out after 500ms.
    Jun  8 17:19:58 linux klogd: iwl4965: MAC is in deep sleep!
    To find out what's going on I did these tests:

    - Try diffrent kernel/distro = same ****
    - Try the latest iwlwifi from intel website
    - Try a manual network configuration insteed of NetworkManager
    - Try an x86_64 arch insteed of x86
    - Configure my router to use an open wireless network without any encription = that give a connection for about 10 secondes and it stop responding.


    Any help is welcome !

    A couple more things to try:

    #1 put your WIRED ethernet adapter into 'start->manually'.

    #2 ndiswrapper
    [This was only way I could get my Atheros wireless-PCI solid on 11.0...even the mad-wifi drivers weren't reliable.]

    Hope this helps...

    I try your suggestions,

    can't connect to wireless even when I set wired ethernet to "start manually"

    And for ndiswrapper, my opensuse just stop booting; I had to boot in rescue mode then remove the windows driver installed with ndiswrapper to get my linux booted.

    That is why I try never to use a Windows driver. Once you do, you run
    the risk of getting the equivalent of the "Blue Screen of Death".

    Your Intel 4965AGN should work with iwl4965 as the driver; however, it
    does not appear to be installed with openSUSE 11.0. I don't think it
    has been in the kernel long enough to have been included in the 10.3
    version. One option is to grab the latest source and "roll your own".
    You will also need the firmware.

    Did you resolve this? I have the same problem. I have installed new drivers, 4.44.1.18, no effect.

    Thanks

    Not yet resolved adrianriley; and after more than two months trying to get it work, I'm just about to give up and look for some PCMCIA ou USB Wireless network.
    It's really frustrating not being able to support laptop hardware's, I know the blame have to go to Intel's but I can't contribute to community by buying openSUSE... now my money's gonna go to d-link or linksys.

    Larry Finger : The iwl4965 IS installed in openSUSE 11 and 10.3, I think it was there from 10.0, I also installed the latest iwlwifi driver and code's file the hard way and with compat-wireless.... IT JUST DON'T WORK

    This seems to be a KNOWN problem:

    There is a specific posting at Intel's site:
    Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN
    that says that the supplied driver does NOT work
    with Linux kernels 2.6.24 and above. [It appears
    to tell you how to proceed in that case.]

    Hope this helps...

    I tried it using compat-wireless as they suggest; no effect.

    Ok, just thought I'd make sure.

    One last question: What's up with your 'PAE' kernel?
    (i.e. why are you using that? seems kinda 'special purpose'
    and I'm from the 'KISS' (keep it simple stupid) school.)

    [I googled PAE, and from that info, I concluded that you
    do NOT benefit from it (since you don't have more than 4GB
    of memory). So, if I got that right, I'd be ditching that
    kernel.]

    TIA...

    I was asking the question to myself; maybe it was installed by default in openSUSE 11.0 x86_64; don't know why.

    I assume the installer detects my 4G memory and decide to install that pae kernel... I really didn't dig a lot to find out what this pae is for. But I'm sure my problem isn't related to this type of kernel, cos I have the same issues using another kernels (2.6.23 and 24 using an Ubuntu Hardy both 32 and 64 bit)
