Just updated my F7 partition to the latest and greatest. As far as I can
tell 3945 WiFi works well. It seems to authenticate faster than before
where it would sit at stage 2 for a while before going through 3,4 and 5
(if at all). Strength was a bit low (72-75%) give a distance of max 3
feet from the AP. Suspend did not work. It hung at "shutting down
consoles" or something like that (black screen, top left, 2nd message).
Before trying suspend I did see this warning in /var/log/messages:

This is an Acer TM6465, x86_64 with an i386 install.

Hope this helps.
