    Exclamation How to change mode to 802.11b from 802.11g?

    I have been narrowing down my connection issue with ipw3945. Normally the iw3945 should be a/b/g but under iwconfig it shows:
    Code:
    wlan0  IEEE 802.11g
    Meanwhile, I am trying to connect to a 802.11b AP. I have tried this command provided in ipw3945's docs hxxp://ipw3945.sourceforge.net/README.ipw3945:
    Code:
    iwpriv wlan0 set_mode 2
    (or) iwpriv wlan0 mode 2
    Says "Invalid Command".

    typing "iwpriv wlan0" for list of commands, i get:'
    Code:
    wlan  Available private isoctls :
    param (8BE0) : set 2 int & get 0
    get_param (8BE1) : set 1 int & get 1 int
    Deduction: must be another method to change mode.

    Any thoughts?

    I detest "bumping". If someone knows the answer they will certainly help you. We do not only read the first post in every thread. I for one try to read all the threads on the first page of each forum topic section.

    It looks like the supplied drivers have no private ioctl support, so you cannot alter any iwpriv values........

    Anyone tried newer/different drivers?
