I'm finally getting back to looking at the wifi on my dell xps1530 w/
Intel 3945. I have Unbuntu Studio Hardy amd64 installed.

Here is the result after bringinh down eth0 and wlan0 up:

lsmod | grep 3945
iwl3945               100848  0 
iwlwifi_mac80211      253284  1 iwl3945

lspci |grep Network
0b:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
Network Connection (rev 02)

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wmaster0  no wireless extensions.

But I don't get connected.

Any pointers appreciated.
