The problem is not likely with 8.04 as I am connected right now via an
Intel iwl3945 and a 2.6.24-21 kernel.

Do you have the kernel module loaded?

lsmod |grep iwl

If not what happens when you try to load it?

sudo modprobe iwl3945

Check the output from dmesg (only the last couple of lines are likely to
be relevant).

Which tools are you referring to specifically?
