Intel 345ABG wireless and CentOS 4.4

Post by bluegroper » 2006/10/23 03:30:51

I have exactly the same problem
Shiny *new* laptop (IBM/Lenovo T60) with Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG.
CentOS is my o/s of choice, however as kernel is < 2.6.13, I decided to try an alternative distro.
K/Ubuntu works the wireless perfectly. However, not eveything else works as it should, and I still wish I could use CentOS.
Shall keep watching this thread to see if any other newbies achive success.
TIA's

The ipw3945 rpm packages from Scientific Linux are binary compatible with CentOS-4, try them and report back.

Thanks for the link! As soon as I installed the Scientific Linux RPMs, everything worked.
