Linux support

This card is supported out of the box on kernel 2.6.34 and newer. Current kernel is 2.6.37 (02:02, 19 January 2011 (UTC)).

  • openSUSE 11.3 is with kernel 2.6.34 and works out of the box. If not install the kernel-firmware package using YaST, but before check you Wi-Fi switch.
  • Fedora 13 has kernel 2.6.33 and supports it but it is flaky.

Older kernels may support it if they have backported drivers from 2.6.34 kernel. .

  • Debian support for kernel 2.6.32 is in a package named firmware-iwlwifi

For recent kernels (3.x series) there is a known firmware bug, which causes connection aborts and very slow transfer rates. According to a developer at intel (Manuel Grumbach) this will not be fixed.
