    After some research and a little correspondence with Intel it turns out that the iwl-1000 series of cards never really worked in 2.6.31

    This bug was fixed in the package linux - 2.6.31-11.38

    Hi, I had also exactly the same problem. Managed to get it working after trying a lot. Did a kernel upgrade (2.6.32.8) on BT4.
    After that I downloaded the iwlwifi-1000-3.ucode from hxxp://intellinuxwireless.org/ and put these in /lib/firmware. After that my wifi link 1000 works perfectly and injection works also.

    I am having the same issues. Upfront I am quite the noob when it comes to linux and BT. However, I have installed to HDD BT4 Final on an HP tm2t with the Intel Wireless 1000 series. I am having the exact same issues as are posted in this thread. Compiling kernels and drivers are WAY above my head at this point. Anything else I can do rather than wait for a new kernel with BT? Orrrr...is there a nice little tutorial on updating the kernel?

    I was really looking forward to using BT on my new toy. Now I am sad. Please help.

    Upgrading all the way to 2.6.32.8 will break your ability to use the OS in a mobile manner - remastersys doesn't take well to later kernels. In terms of getting iwlwifi functionality from 2.6.32.8 see my post regarding injection and the like for iwl devices - Injection on iwl5k.

    Thanks for the link Rage. But seriously I am such a crazy noob with this gear that I have no clue how to compile and add that package. Learning bit by bit but still quite the noob.

    Guess I need to stick to learnin' the basics like the sticky says. - thanks for the help.
