[Bug 406060] Re: 8086:4222 [iwl3945] Wifi doesnt remember previous session state


Vish, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder, but the one at the top) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  8086:4222 [iwl3945] Wifi doesnt remember previous session state

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In Karmic , up-to-date as of today.
  The wireless doesnt remember the state of the previous session.

  Ideally: the wireless state of the previous session needs to be used
  on the next boot.

  In intrepid and earlier too this problem existed , but i was able to
  set the state to always on by adding these lines to the
  /etc/modprobe.d/options file.

  options iwl3945 disable=0
  options acer-wmi wireless=1

  This caused the wireless to be started at every boot without having to
  use the killswitch.

  When the system was upgraded to Jaunty the  /etc/modprobe.d/options
  file just remained as a backup [options.dpkg-bak] and the settings
  where moved elsewhere[not sure where!] But the wireless did auto-start
  and i did not have to use the killswitch. to enable it.

  In karmic since i did a fresh install ,
   i'm not able to add the option in the /etc/modprobe.d/XXXX.conf file , any setting i set doesnt get used,
   I'v also tried adding the $rfkill unblock wifi    command in the rc.local , but with no effect.
