Re: WiFi not working on Dell Inspiron 6400 - and now on Samsung Q35

I have finally resolved this issue after a number of suggestions from
kind people on the net. Eventually I amended some of the ideas to
reach the correct solution.

I found that in fact the modules (ipw3945 and ieee80211) were in fact
loaded at boot but it was the regulatory daemon that was not running

The solution was to append a single line to the /etc/rc.local file:
/sbin/ipw3945d --quiet

Now with this line in, then after boot the wireless interface is
running perfectly and the regulatory daemon is running.

Then with the regulatory daemon continuing to run, a user can switch
the eth1 interface off or on with /sbin/ifup eth1 or /sbin/ifdown eth1
any time they like.

This is nice - but it took a lot of searching to find the solution !
