    Do I need iwlagn module for Lenovo T400?


    I have the Lenovo T400 which I understand requires the iwlagn.ko module (for the intel 5100 wireless card).

    I need this driver installed for Backtrack 3 (kernel 2.6.21.5)

    I found this page: h t t p : intellinuxwireless.org/?n=downloads

    I did install the microcode into /lib/firmware, and the mac80211 subsystem.

    Not sure which driver to compile, I downloaded iwlwifi-1.2.25.tgz

    However, after compiling I do not see iwlagn.ko or iwlwifi.ko. It only created iwl3945.ko and iwl4965.ko

    dont I need iwlwifi.ko or iwlagn.ko or iwl5100.ko ?

    I don't think the iwlagn driver is compatible with such an old kernel. You would either need to install a more recent kernel or move to the latest Backtrack release.
