Hello Akemi & Others,

Today I reformated my laptop Dell Precision M90 and installed the
Fresh version of CentOs 5.2 and then took all the available update.
In that update I got Kernel version update and now I am on

I kept a file iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode into the /lib/firmware/

Now after restarting the computer my computer it is giving the
following message on the startup.
Bringing up interface wmaster :
Determining IP information for wmaster .... SIOCSIFLAGS : Operation
not supported.

In the network manager it is showing my device i.e Intel Pro 3945
adapter but in the Inactive state.
Please give me some suggestion so that I can figure out this problem.

Thanks in advance.
