Activate at least cfg and mac Monitor sniffer – see note. See the section When using built-in configuration. We merge the updates coming from the backport infrastructure on a regular basis. After changes on kernel configuration do not forget to rebuild the kernel. For more information on Intel Wireless products, please visit Intel Wireless.

There are four repositories that we maintain: Also note that using 40MHz and not 20MHz channel bandwidth will increase the probability to suffer from platform noise since intdl frequencies might impact the Wi-Fi performance. Activate at least cfg and mac Bug fixes will be ported to Wi-Fi heavily relies on radio frequencies, and those are subject to interference.

This tree is ideal for bisecting. This means that the bleeding edge of the backport tree will run against decently recent kernel usually against Linus’s tree.

Having Wi-Fi and Iwl965 running at the same time is a challenge. These Core releases can be very useful for someone who wants to integrate our Wi-Fi solution into his home made system. For older chips, there are other drivers:. The antennas are typically located in the lid of the laptop.


Minstrel and its To get the latest version for newer kernels, please use the firmware git tree instead.

This is why some people may face issues with devices that are handled by iwldvm. Our policy is to close bugs that have been pending for input for more than two weeks. After changes on kernel configuration do not forget to rebuild the kernel. Interference may come from another Wi-Fi device, or kntel many other non Wi-Fi devices e. See the section When using built-in configuration.

The driver supports This will put lots of pressure on the memory subsystem, but it will allow you to hear 12K long packets. These scenarios have been tested thoroughly on and up, less so on earlier devices. USB3 and graphics in certain scenarios.

Where that appropriate location is depends again on your system distribution. This page contains changes which are not marked for translation. The firmware necessary to support the devices is distributed separately under the firmware license.

In order to determine if your device is a ‘D’ version, you can check the dmesg output:. In this case replace iwlwifi-xxxx.


Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 and WiFi Link 4965 devices

Our devices support monitor mode. Please note that the latter address accepts plaintext emails only. To make it work kwl4965 kernel configuration is needed.

In this example, enabling the wireless card failed as a radio frequency kill state is set usually to keep power consumption at bay and not connect by accident to a wireless network. Those devices will not be supported by the newest firmware versions: The steps for installing and configuring this are very distribution specific and the tools differ, but distributions have this enabled.

Use this driver for Intel’s current wireless chips.

Some common sources of platform noise might be: Table of Contents Introduction.
