  • I don’t believe it’s supported by the el5 kernel but you’ll need to provide the Vendor:Device ID pairing to be sure.

    According to the Intel documentation, that chipset requires the iwlwifi-6000g2a firmware and interrogating the driver doesn’t list it:

    $ strings
    /lib/modules/2.6.18-348.el5/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/iwlagn.ko |
    grep ucode | grep firmware

    firmware=iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-5150-2.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-5000-2.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-6050-4.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode

    Hence why I doubt it’s supported.

    Further, elrepo does not have updated drivers for el5.

    That device does however appear to be supported out of the box on el6 so your best bet would be to upgrade:

    $ strings
    /lib/modules/2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/iwlwifi.ko
    | grep ucode | grep firmware

    firmware=iwlwifi-5150-2.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode < === Bingo! firmware=iwlwifi-6050-5.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-100-5.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-1000-5.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-135-6.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-105-6.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-2030-6.ucode firmware=iwlwifi-2000-6.ucode Hope that helps
