Ok, Jeremy, the usb wireless is working and seems stable.

Thank you very much for your guiding which was perfect.

I hope to have a stable internet connexion with this device.

Best regards

That's odd---from what I have seen on the Net, Intel wi-fi devices have been consistently just about the best and most stable performers in Linux. Are you certain you have an Intel 3945? I've found some posts on the Net with people saying their 6510b actually has a Broadcom wi-fi device...


What happens when it crashes? Do any error messages show up at the end of the output of the "dmesg" command?

Can you unload and reload the possible driver as root or with sudo:

Code: Select all

rmmod iwl3945
modprobe iwl3945
and see if that gets it working again?
