iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode firmware file req failed

This problem started to occur to me while moving to kernel

The problem is that the file doesn't exits. I was able to fix it by downloading the latest image (iwlwifi-4965-ucode- from Intel Linux Wireless. Once downloaded and unpacked copy iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode to /lib/firmware/

$ wget

$ tar xzvf iwlwifi-4965-ucode-

$ cp iwlwifi-4965-ucode- /lib/firmware/

This was performed on a Lenovo R61 running Debian.

The Feds can own your WLAN too

Well it looks like the Feds are starting to use the common tools of the trade to get into wireless networks. They also were able to do it in a reasonable amount of time. Everyone knew that WEP was crackable but in 3 minutes :evil face:

After about three minutes of capturing and cracking, the FBI team found the correct WEP key, and displayed it on a projected notebook screen. Agent Bickers, still speaking to the audience, turned around, looked at the screen and was surprised, "Usually it takes five to ten minutes."

Tools Used

* Auditor's Security Collection - Contains all the wireless hacking tools already installed
* Kismet
* Airsnort
* Aircrack (includes Aireplay and Airodump)
