    Question Request: Help with ipw3945 - iwlwifi and ipwraw drivers

    Hi, I'm pretty new to linux but I'm doing my best to learn quickly. I'm looking for some help with updating my 3945 drivers. I've been digging around for a while and everywhere I looked I found posts saying the ipw3945 wireless card wouldn't support packet injection(including posts here). I then came across a set of drivers released by intel that supposedly would: iwlwifi and ipwraw

    I was looking for some help getting them in properly using BT2F. I'm booting BT off of my HP dv2000 linux partition (HD installed). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cool problem with Mac80211

    I was going through the instructions which led me to having to setup a Mac80211 subsystem first I got as far as installing the modules and just towards the end it couldnt install one of the cfg files. Anyone know anything about this?

    If you check out the B|T wiki site at Offensive security it mentions this:

    Driver : IPW3945

    Enable the drivers via KDE menu or cd /usr/src/drivers/ipw3945-1.2.0/ && ./load

    Enters monitor mode, but cannot inject

    You may need to start the image with "bt irqpoll" Good way to tell: you see what looks like function call backtraces on startup and the suggestion to run "bt irqpoll" scrolls by pretty fast. Check your dmesg for more details if it scrolls too fast for you.
    What version of B|T are you using? My recommendation would be to go buy a Netgear card if you can (especially if you are looking to use packet injection/etc. I have spent a lot of time doing the same kind of stuff for the ipw2200 and realized your just better off getting a different card. Although, hopefully somebody else has some more insight on this issue..

    I appreciate the comments guys.

    My problem though isn't with specifically getting my wireless card up at all. I handled that without a problem. It's that recently new drivers came out which allow the ipw3945 to packet inject. I'm working on patching the kernel with the modules, however, first I have to install the mac80211 subsystem (goto: intellinuxwireless.org). I have had trouble getting this through on BT. It stopped at the installing modules phase.

    The next step involves getting the iwlwifi driver for the 3945 to replace the ipw3945 drivers and daemon.
