  • Ubuntu 8.04 on x61s
    • Works out of the box using the standard desktop install. No problems switching between wireless networks.
  • Kubuntu Feisty
    • I can only get the adapter to make one wireless connection per boot. If I get kicked off wireless or I try to change AP's I have to reboot. The restricted IPW driver tends to destabalize the system. The IWL driver is much more stable but still has the same connection problem. Any thoughts?? Lenovo R61i.

Are you sure? I installed Networkmanager (from main - I have a WPA enabled router) and WiFi worked immediately. No need for any additional tasks.

  • Ubuntu
    • With Edgy, all you have to do is install the linux-restricted-modules-generic package.

It works out-of the box in edgy (on a Z61m) without the need to install any additional packages, so I changed this info.

  • Ubuntu
    • Ubuntu Dapper has already built in this drivers; it works out from the box.

Ubuntu (neither Dapper nor Edgy) have the ipw3945 drivers, so I've deleted the info. --Zhenech 15:19, 27 September 2006 (CEST)

According to this:

All you have to do is to install the linux-restricted-modules-generic package. I've tested this using Edgy - it worked out of the box on a T60.
