    Another wireless problem, Fedora 6


    Hi all,
    Ive recently upgraded to Fedora 7 (Ive been using fedora 6 up until that time, which, after installing the wireless drivers worked flawlessly), and I am a bit stumped by a strange problem with my wi-fi card.
    Im using a lenovo laptop, equipped with the 3945 wireless card from intel.
    Fedora recognizes the card, it appears in iwconfig, and it appears in the network configuration screen, yet iwlist scan doesn't find ANY wireless network, which is strange as I have about 19 wireless networks in my area (accessible from my windows OS, and used to be accessible from my old FC6 box).
    Any help on this issue is very appreciated.

    ---EDIT---
    Sorry, the title was meant to be Fedora 7

    Make sure that you have the firmware for you Wifi you can get it from :
    Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Driver for Linux

    the directory of the firmware is /lib/firmware ,

    post the complete output of the iwconfig
    and iwlist eth1 scan .

    it's very strange since these cards are completely supported by Linux,and the driver is open.

    Im talking about Fedora 7

    It is supposed to have built in support, as Ive mentioned before, the problem is that the card doesn't find any network... it seems to be well configured, under wlan0

    Yes i know, Check if you have the recent version of the firmware (/lib/firmware) or just overwrite the firmware from the site.after that do
    iwlist wlan0 scan, and see if something changes.
