    Default problems & intel wifi 1000 & hidden ssid

    hello!

    i can't use the wifi interface to connect to the internet. what i did was:

    Code:
    • /etc/init.d/networking start
    • /etc/init.d/wicd start
    • startx
    • starting wicd
    • trying to add hidden ssid in wicd (network -> hidden network)
    hitting 10 times refresh, still the ap did not show up so i could make advanced settings like wpa.

    iwconfig wlan0 shows that the hidden essid is set.

    /var/log/wicd/wicd.log says when having debug on in wicd:

    Code:
    2010/01/25 09:23:17 :: ifconfig eth0
    2010/01/25 09:23:18 :: scanning start
    2010/01/25 09:23:18 :: ifconfig wlan0 up
    2010/01/25 09:23:18 :: iwlist wlan0 scan
    2010/01/25 09:23:18 :: scanning done
    2010/01/25 09:23:18 :: found 0 networks:
    2010/01/25 09:23:18 :: iwconfig wlan0
    2010/01/25 09:23:18 :: ifconfig eth0

    nearby is an ap without hidden essid. even this won't be found. when having essid broadcast on, still mine won't be found.

    Code:
    iwlist wlan0 scan
    wlan0     Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down

            Kernel driver in use: iwlagn
            Kernel modules: iwlagn
    please help.

    in /lib/firmware, there's no "iwlwifi-1000-*.ucode", which seems to be the problem.

    look here Intel® Wireless WiFi Link drivers for Linux*.

    the problem with this firmware is that iwlagn does not support version 3 firmware.

    anybody knows a solution?

    EDIT:

    i guess the solution is to get the newest kernel + iwlagn module.

    how is a new kernel compiled on bt without breaking everything?

    I'm having this same exact problem. When I use 'apt-get update' it doesn't prompt to install/upgrade the new kernel, which from doing some research, would surely solve my problem as well. If anybody could chime in that would be awesome. I am new and I have been searching my butt off to fix this but haven't figured it out quite yet.
