    Which up to date distribution is compatible with Intel 3945ABG Wireless?


    Hi guys,



    I have to left ubuntu on my Acer Aspire 5610, because wireless is not working any more since ubuntu 8.04 (also 8.10, 9.04, 9.10, 10.04) and ubuntu 7.04 is outdated.


    Is there any current distribution in which intel 3945 does work?


    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Arthur

    The driver for your card has been merged into Linux kernel since 2.6.24. Any recent distro should work.

    Hey segfault,

    iwl3945 is very unstable and bad performaning with any current ubuntu version (inculding latest updates) - that's the problem!

    I have also tried OpenSuse-11.2 - same here.

    There was IPW3945 project, this was superceded by IWLWIFI. The latter is included in Linux kernel, thus does not depend on what distro you are using.
    Do you get some errors in /var/log/messages? Does it show up in dmesg?

    I have a 3945 in my Dell laptop and I have no problems with the latest Ubuntu on it. Works fine. Out of the box nio problems

    For the most part the only cards with real problems are the broadcom.
