+
+
+1. OVERVIEW
+
+The file iwlwifi-3945.ucode provided in this package is required to be
+present on your system in order for the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network
+Connection Adapter driver for Linux (iwlwifi-3945) to be able to operate
+on your system.
+
+On adapter initialization, and at varying times during the uptime of
+the adapter, the microcode is loaded into the RAM on the network
+adapter. The microcode provides the low level MAC features including
+radio control and high precision timing events (backoff, transmit,
+etc.) while also providing varying levels of packet filtering which can
+be used to keep the host from having to handle packets that are not of
+interest given the current operating mode of the device.
+
+2. INSTALLATION
+
+The iwlwifi-3945 driver will look for the file iwlwifi-3945.ucode using the
+kernel's firmware_loader infrastructure. In order to function
+correctly, you need to have this support enabled in your kernel. When
+you configure the kernel, you can find this option in the following
+location:
+
+ Device Drivers ->
+ Generic Driver Options ->
+ Hotplug firmware loading support
+
+
+You can determine if your kernel currently has firmware loader support
+by looking for the CONFIG_FW_LOADER definition on your kernel's
+.config.
+
+In addition to having the firmware_loader support in your kernel, you
+must also have a working hotplug and udev infrastructure configured.
+The steps for installing and configuring hotplug and udev are very
+distribution specific.
+
+Once you have the firmware loader in place (or if you aren't sure and
+you just want to try things to see if it works), you need to install
+the microcode file into the appropriate location.
+
+Where that appropriate location is depends (again) on your system
+distribution. You can typically find this location by looking in the
+hotplug configuration file for your distro:
+
+ % grep \"^FIRMWARE_DIR\" /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent
+
+This should give you output like:
+
+ FIRMWARE_DIR=/lib/firmware
+
+If it lists more than one directory, you only need to put the
+microcode in one of them. In the above example, installation is
+simply:
+
+ % cp iwlwifi-3945.ucode /lib/firmware
+
+You can now load the driver (see the INSTALL and
+README.iwlwifi-3945 provided with the iwlwifi-3945 package for
+information on building and using that driver.)
+
