PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection

After much struggle, I finally was able to get the network for my wifi ENABLED (and not DISABLED):

$ sudo lshw
description: Wireless interface
product: PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 0
bus info: pci@0000:0c:00.0
logical name: wmaster0
version: 61
serial: 00:21:5c:a0:55:17
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list logical ethernet physical wireless
configuration: broadcast=yes driver=iwlagn latency=0 module=iwlagn multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11abgn

The trick was to use a 2.6.30 kernel !


I still get the annoying HAL problem:

[ 167.662866] atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x88 on isa0060/serio0).
[ 167.662874] atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e008 ' to make it known.

Oh well giving up on this one for now.
