Re: iwlwifi working anytime soon?



> iwlwifi: Radio Frequency Kill Switch is On:

About the radio kill switch or "hardware" radio kill switch, some laptop vendor seem to implement it in their "own way". I was suprised that some ipw3945 hardware require another module to enable wireless. ( i thought that was only on ipw2200).
This is the case for acer laptops :
- acerhk may be used with the "old" ipw3945 on x86
- acer_acpi on x86_64 (maybe x86 also)

Others software radio kills switch are required also for fsam7400 fsam7440 fujitsu etc...
But i didn't found those to be required on ipw3945 based laptops
see: http://rfswitch.sourceforge.net/

I've done most of theses kernel external module (as kmod)
But they won't conform to kernel inclusion for most of them ...
