I’m using HP 520 Laptop, the wireless adapter is Hewlett Packard Intel Pro Wireless 3945B/G.
The wireless is actually working properly, but the button is not.
The problem is :
- The radio led indicator is not turned on although the radio is working
- I can turn off (kill) the wireless radio but I can’t Turn it back on after. To turn it on I have to restart it or go to shell an do the iwconfig command.
I wasn’t found any of those problem with OpenSuse 10.3,but when I installed (I tried both upgrading and fresh installing) 11.0, the problem came up.
the other differences I found are in 10.3, the default assigned device name of my wireless card is eth1, but in 11.0 it is wlan0, and in 10.3, the default name of wireless card is “Hewlett Packard intel pro wireless”, but in 11.0 it is just “intel pro wireless”.
Is the default 11.0 kernel had just remove the driver/module? Can somebody help me how to fix it? because I often need to turn it on and off to save some power.
