    My wireless card, came with my dv6500 HP laptop, only works with the the newest kernel in Ubuntu's Gutsy Gibbon. I'd like to make a custom cd with this kernel on it as well if it's possible.

    Default kernel issues

    The details posted are incomplete.

    However, from the information supplied I tend to think that an upward revision of the kernel might not be necessary. One of the great capabilities of this distribution is its modularity. You might also note that a new release of BT is in the course of compilation and testing.

    If you supply more detailed information concerning your wireless card (internal or external) then we might be more able to assist you.

    This HP unit is not THAT new.

    What is the primary intended purpose of the wireless interface? Can you connect?

    Sorry about not being more complete. I did notice a new version of BT is in the works which is great. However, they aren't sure even sure on a time table which leaves me in the cold at the moment .

    I don't have much experience with this distribution so I'm kind of ignorant to this modularity you are talking about, but I am quite willing to learn.

    The card is an internal Intel 4965AGN. If loading an extra module is all that it would take to get the card up and running that would be great.

    The purpose of the card is to not need a second laptop when running the aircrack tools. Right now when I run the tools I have to have another laptop connect to the AP while my AWUS036s is waiting for the authentication packet (I think that is what it is called).

    To answer your last question, I can't connect or see any AP's at all with the card.



    Oh, and it's a DV6500t, it's fairly new .

    for this card you MUST use the latest driver for it :

    Microcode For Intel Wireless WiFi 4965AGN users:
    % wget \
    http://intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwif...de-4.44.17.tgz
    % tar xvf iwlwifi-4965-ucode-4.44.17.tgz
    % cp iwlwifi-4965-ucode-4.44.17/iwlwifi-4965.ucode /lib/firmware/


    install driver
    % wget \
    http://intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwif...ifi-1.1.17.tgz
    % tar xvf iwlwifi-1.1.17.tgz
    % cd iwlwifi-1.1.17
    % make
    % make install

    testing :
    dmesg -c > /dev/null
    % ./load debug=0x43fff
    Verify that loading succeeds without any errors in the kernel:
    % dmesg -c
    Bring up the interface so it can be configured:
    % ifconfig wlan0 up
    Verify that you can scan and see access points:
    % iwlist wlan0 scan
    Associate to your network:
    % iwconfig wlan0 essid XXXXXX
    If you use WEP encryption, configure your key:
    % iwconfig wlan0 key [1] ...your key in hex...
    % iwconfig <-- Verify that you are associated
    % dhcpcd wlan0
    hope helps.... btw this driver wil be included in bt3, it was on the testing reliz....
    Watch your back, your packetz will belong to me soon... xD

    Default Pulling in the latest kernel

    Or try:

    http://www.linux-live.org/create a livecd.pdf

    It shows how to pull in the latest kernel.
