From the message, it looks like the hardware switch that kills the wireless NIC is turned off. If this is a laptop, check the manual or look for a little LED with a switch next to it.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.
