intel3945 WLAN and Siemens ADSL Modem



Hello Friends

I have one 'Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
(rev 02)' card (quoted from `lspci`) in my Lenovo laptop. And my
Siemens ADSL modem has a Wireless network facility. But, though I set
the network up according to the modem manual, I am not being able to
get the wlan0 up.

'service network start' is giving me a message like this:
<<
Bringing up interface wlan0:  Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device

Determining IP information for wlan0...SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
 failed.
>>

And 'dmesg' is telling:
<<
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:03:00.0[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
iwl3945: Radio disabled by HW RF Kill switch
>>

My question is, is some problem there in the wlan driver or I am
making some stupid mistake in setting up the wireless? See, I am
absolutely ignorant about both wireless and network, and so, please
make your reply as less cryptic as possible.
