To find out what’s going on I did these tests:
Try diffrent kernel/distro = same shit
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.

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.
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
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.]
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)
Ok, so my LAST thought…try the Live-CD from my
favorite Linux distro…namely MEPIS. Download
the 32-bit Live-CD for version 7.0, as
I see that the iwl4965 driver is there (and the
32-bit flavor has much higher odds of working).
MEPIS has the reputation of ‘best hardware detection’
right off the Live-CD. (So, if your wireless doesn’t
work from the Live-CD, don’t bother installing it.)

When I try to follow their directions (no rpm files here) I get as far as
the make command and get an error…see below
rsmits@linux-27h2:~/dl> cd compat-wireless-2008-06-15
make -C /lib/modules/18.104.22.168-1.1-pae/build
make: Entering directory /usr/src/linux-22.214.171.124-1.1-obj/i386/pae' make: *** No rule to make target modules’. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-126.96.36.199-1.1-obj/i386/pae’
make: *** [modules] Error 2
I don’t understand this ‘rule’ I apparently need. Advice?
Also, over on the beta group, toharris suggested I try the ipw driver, but
it made no difference, either.

Keep in mind I’m using the RC1 DVD here. Install the ipw driver as well,
from the RC1 DVD. The correct version is one that has .81 in the name. If
you use the one from the non-oss repo it won’t work.
Then enter the info to configure the wireless card (Yast, Network Devices,
Network Card). Then reboot and hopefully, your wireless is working. Just
don’t update until they get it all fixed.
1- Add the iwl4965 module to blacklist so it wouldn’t load on boot.
2- Install the latest ndiswrapper from source (I installed 1.53)
3- Install the Windows driver (ndiswrapper -i netw4x64.inf)
This solution worked for both networkmanager and ifup.
