Hi, how could I fix my i586 WiFi issue. NetworkManager Applet V1.8.10 tells me "device not ready (firmeware missing)"

OS is 32 bit Porteus 4.0.

dmesg|grep -i wifi tells me this

Seems Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5751M is my ethernet wired controller and Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02) my wireless controller - the one with the "device not ready (firmeware missing)" issue:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# lspci|grep -i wifi 
root@porteus:~# lspci|grep -i eth
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5751M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 21)
root@porteus:~# lspci|grep -i Wireless
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
I presume intel_wifi_6300.xzm from Intel Wireless WiFi: no firmware for iwlwifi (Post by kalo86 #67379) would not work

That's weird...it was running ootB in/since Porteus v09,see this post from Ahau
Re: What is you computer model, does it work with the OS (Post by Ahau #441)

However, try an older version of porteus > if one works, copy over the firmware.

or (maybe)
from debian in 2018 - same device
firmware: direct-loading firmware iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode
loaded firmware version 15.32.2.9

which is here:
https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/_media ... 32.2.9.tgz
It is not a slackware pkg - extract the files, don't simply make a module of it.
