I seem to have a problem with my Wifi.
When I try to connect to a network it says connection unsuccessful, verify settings in the Mandriva Control Center.
What settings do I need to verify?
It was working fine, and then the router at home strted acting up, it would randomly disconnect from the internet. When that happened, I could no longer reconnect to the home network! It still worked at school, but now it doesn't even do that anymore.
I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network adapter.
I have the iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode installed (I think, I had it installed, but when I went to MCC>Hardware it said to install that driver. I plugged into the router via a cable and did).
This was after I upgraded the kernel to 126.96.36.199-desktop-1mnb
Could that be a problem? I don't think so. I restarted Mandriva in the old kernel (188.8.131.52) and I still have this problem.
A little help please?!

Can other machines connect to your home network? I have the same Intel card in my laptop and I was getting similar connection problems with my wireless router (connections randomly and intermittently dropping). It turned out that the fix was to update the firmware on the router. I don't use Mandriva but I've heard that it's rather good with hardware detection and I'm surprised it didn't detect and install the drivers for you during the install because that's a fairly common card. Do you get any output from iwconfig?

Right now I am connected to the school network, even though a few hours ago I couldn't.
And I do get a response from iwconfig, it gave me the statistics on the connection.
I will check my home network when I get home in a few hours...

OK, this is just plain weird.
I am at home, and my computer connected to the network no problem, I even get a decent speed on my torrent (Mandriva 2008.1).
I'm gonna chalk it up to the phases of the moon and downgrade to 2008.1.
