Intel ipw3945 wireless stoped working after update to kernel 2.6.20-1.2962



Story:
Initial setup of the ipw3945 on Fc6, wasn't straight forward,
but after some googling around, I've figure out that I would
need to switch my i386 kernel to an i686 so it could match the
packages available. Initial used atrpms, didn't worked, then
used freshrpms.... it would eventually started working.

Problem:
After my last update to kernel 2.6.20-1.2962 my eth1 just
disapeard.... no messages on the /var/messages the /sbin/ipw3945d
when forced to started just complains:
# /sbin/ipw3945d
ipw3945d - regulatory daemon

Network Connection

Ups...

Solution:
# cd /var/lib/dkms/ipw3945/1.2.1-1/build
# make
# cp ipw3945.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2962.fc6/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
# depmod -a
# service ipw3945d restart

And got it back to life.
