Call for Testing: iwn(4)

Contributed by tbert on from the not-your-own-device dept.

Mark Kettenis (kettenis@) has put out a call for testing for iwn(4) devices:
I'm looking for people with one of the following unsupported Intel wireless chips:

Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 (shows up as Wireless-N 2000 in dmesg)
Intel Centrino Wireless-N 135
Intel Centrino Wireless-N 105

If you have one of these, please try the attached diff. It might give you a working iwn(4).



This patch has subsequently been committed; if you have an iwn device, please find the time to test and report success and failure.

    There seems to be some confusion. It has NOT been commited yet.

      Apologies, our time machine sometimes gets stuck in 3rd gear.

    But it has been committed now! The Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 was tested successfully by Mike Larkin (mlarkin@), but the Wireless-N 105 and Wireless-N 135 remain untested. So testers are still wanted! And now that this is committed testing will be even easier. Just grab a future snapshot, or build from source. No patching required!

    I've got Centrino 2230 ... does that apply?

      Is it an iwn device? If so, it applies! Test away, good person!
