    Default Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2235 Not working (SOLVED)

    Hello everyone,

    I recently purchased a samsung np900x4c that came with an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2235 Adapter.
    I installed Backtrack5 R3 and tried to install the latest firmware available from http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=downloads.
    Problem is i found drivers up to 2230. I installed following all proper steps.

    Copied the file iwlwifi-2030-ucode-6 to /lib/firmware

    then run "modprode -r iwlagn"
    then run "modprobe iwlagn"

    and then tried to bring the interface up: ifconfig wlan0 up.

    What i get is:

    Microcode SW error detected with a bunch of errors following.
    Finally: unable to initialise device
    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Input/output error

    Can someone provide me with some feedback?
    Is it because of driver incompatibility?

    Talking Re: Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2235 Not working (SOLVED)

    After taking a look at my dmesg during boot i noticed that the card was identified as a 6030 series instead of 2030.
    Feedback from Intel Linux project recommended to upgrade the kernel to latest version but since i think this can be a pain
    i thought that since the system detects my card as a 6030 then maybe the 6030 firmware would do the trick....

    ... and it did!!!

    Download and extract the iwlwifi-6000g2b-ucode-18.168.6.1.tgz
    Copy: iwlwifi-6000g2b-6 to /lib/firmware


    "modprode -r iwlagn"
    "modprobe iwlagn"
    ifconfig wlan0 up

    working!
