WIFI and 3945 cards
This is not specifically a howto but rather some info that i never found on the internets. Many people (myself included) have been unable to get this card working properly, it would either connect to an AP but wouldnt get a dhcp address, or would stall trying to connect. A weekend of looking on the net at drivers, kernel, etc and finding nothing that helped, i discovered a solution.
iwl3945 hates WEP. if your using WEP switch to WPA or open (or anything other than WEP really). The only reason i was using WEP (and the only reason others might) is to have secure(ish) wifi bridging (as my ap's didnt bridge using WPA).
Anyway, this is just a heads up for anyone who doesnt want to spend a frustrating few hours trying to figure out why their 3945 card doesnt work.
