Title: Debian Lenny on HP Compaq 8510p
Topic: blog
Date: 2008-05-06

Wireless: Intel 4965

Drivers: iwl4965

The driver is installed automatically on Lenny, but you need the microcode image from http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/?n=Downloads. Download the tar archive iwlwifi-4965-ucode-, unpack it and copy iwlwifi-4965-1.ucode to /lib/firmware directory.

Now you can reload the iwl4965 module:

rmmod iwl4965

insmod iwl4965

Sound works using ALSA with the snd_hda_intel module.
