Hey guys!

 

Does anyone knows howto get rid of "kernel[0]: iwi2200: found 1 networks" in system.log?

I have this message every 3 sec. I'm seek and tired of it :)

 

Thanks

Russ

If you have xcode you can remove the comment from #define IWI_NOLOG and comment out #define IWI_WARNERR iwi2200.h. You will of course have to download the source from google code and build it yourself.

 

If you do this, your logs will obviously be of no use to the developers.

Hey guys

 

Browsing around for some ethernet kext, I came accross a chinese website with several macosx86 files, including a "iwi3945.dmg" file.

I was wondering if that file was the same which is being worked on on this forum, or another release which might work?

The URL is : http://www.stiffyfoto.com/files/mac/

Holy {censored} batman!! Are you saying that this will enable my 3945 wireless to be seen as another ethernet port? If that's the case...woohoo!!!

 

 

P.S. if someone who has it working could post a quick how to, that would be great!

err. if it installs another ethernet port how the hell are you connecting to a wireless network?

does airport function at all? maybe post a screenshot as proof?

The Ralink RT2500 wireless card in my wifes PC had a driver created that made Mac OSX think it was another ethernet card, it connected wirelessly just fine (wasn't seen by mac or it's programs as airport rather a 2nd ethernet connection), and was operated through the utility.

So it is possible but let's see some confirmation without a kernel panick!

Well I can confirm that the .dmg image from that website makes the Intel 3945ABG chip detectable as a second ethernet card (seen in attached screenshot).

 

As far as I can tell, it's correct - it has the correct MAC address present in the network configuration screen, all I need to do now is somehow connect it to my network. Somebody mentioned a "Utility" - any ideas?

 

Many thanks,

MaidenFan

// Edit: I've just downloaded the RAlink USB Wireless Utility - which is what I think people have been referring to - and it doesn't detect the 3945 out of the box. I'm not sure what to do next - and I'm not going to go messing about with kexts until I know what I'm doing - so I'll leave it there for the time being :P

I started a new topic about the chinese driver so we don't hijack this development thread:

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=57646

Thanks, Kevin.

 

As a side note for everyone, judging by the rest of the files listed on that site, as well as the dates on the files, I'd bet my right nut that the 3945 driver on that site is a direct product of the people of this forum. I.E. - It is a repost of our ~ver.320 driver, and not their work in any form. Also, all of your reports of the working/non-working status of that driver directly correlate to the posts in this topic circa April 2007.

 

But you guys go have fun. See you back here in a few days.

I didn't want to rain on anyone's parade, but I didn't want you to get all your hopes up either.

I did appreciate your enthusiasm, though. :D

 

My other thought was this:

Let's say it was a different project. If you found a problem with that driver or wanted some additional functionality, how were you going to convey that to them? :blink:

just a quick question, i have an idea that might solve some people's wireless problems. now, dont get me wrong, i am a total supporter of this development and its drivers. but for some people, myself included, there are hardware issues. here is my idea. i have an older apple airport card, not the airport express, just the regular airport. this type of card has the ability to fit in a laptop's pcmcia slot. now, to function normally, that is inside of an apple ibook, the card must have the power plug plugged into the top, similar to the 3945 card. would it be possible to take a usb cable, splice it so that it only has the power ability, and rewire an airport power plug onto it? its just a thought. when i get back to work on monday, im going to try it. I have started another topic, here, on this subject as well.

Well I was actually considering video taping myself doing charades and hand signals, maybe drawing a bit, and then emailing the video to him or have me talk in English and find someone to do a voice over in Chinese kind of like in the kung fu movies.

Hello,

 

I tried the driver for the 4965AGN and got no error message however since there are no unsecure network at job, I can't really try it.

 

I could drop a codec dump if that's of any use but someone would have to remind me the line since I have only done it once to make my sound card work.

 

cat /proc/?/card1/codec#0 ?

 

Anyway, you guys are doing a very good job, much respect.
