Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network Connection Adapter

INDEX
1. OVERVIEW
2. INSTALLATION
3. LICENSE
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.)
3. LICENSE
