Default Re: nvidia 100.14.19 + ipw3945: system freezes

Yes I think that I have the same card as you:

davide@gentoo ~ $ lspci | grep 3945
04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02)

but I can't get my wireless to work with iwlwifi: I rebuilt my kernel with the mac80211 support, installed iwl3945 driver and blacklisted ipw3945 in my modprobe.conf... but my card just doesn't connect to the AP... maybe I should wait untill iwlwifi is more stable...

By the way none of the tried kernel cheats worked. The only thing that I can do is to keep my computer near to the AP: in this way it's really uncommon that it crashes. I am tring irqbalance too, I think that this won't fix the problem (as it should be unrelated with the assignment of the interrupts to the cores), but it could make my system more stable.

I will try iwlwifi again when I will upgrade to the 2.6.23...
