I have Ubuntu installed on my Sager 5760. It recognizes most of my hardware, including the Intel 3945 mini-PCI wifi card. However I'm unable to access the net with the Intel 3945. I can associate it with my access point, I can bring the card up (sudo ifup eth1), and it seems to get an IP address from my router. But I can't ping anything on the network. And I notice when I log into my router, and check the list of attached devices, it doesn't list the hostname of the 5760. It lists the IP address, but it is blank under the space where the laptop's hostname should be. Which leads me to believe that something isn't being done properly when the laptop gets an IP address from my router. When I do an 'ifconfig eth1' I notice that there are some packet errors and dropped packets:
Has anyone managed to get the Intel 3945 wifi card working with Linux? Is there something I'm not doing right? Some .conf file someplace that needs to be changed?
