Interstingly enough I don't have a iwlagn nor iwlcore modules in /proc/modules, actually I have no modules there what so ever. I get that when I type "rmmod iwlagn" or just looking at the dir.
I wonder if this is all due to the new "Consistent Network Device Naming" in Fedora 15?
Any solutions or hints will be greatly appriciated.
I finally figured this out! Yes, I'm a bit slow! The answer is here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...ling_LED_blink
It boils down to this:
1.0 Find what network driver is being used in your PC.
1.1 II used hardInfo to find that - #sudo yum install hardinfo
1.2 Under PCI Devices - mine is an Intel 4965
2.0 Find what module your kernel is running. #lsmod
2.1 Look for your Kernel Module (is listed in the hardinfo window)
2.2 iwl4965 150400 0
iwl_legacy 113098 1 iwl4965
3.0 Edit/make the modprobe.conf accordingly
3.1 in my case I had to use ->#echo "options iwl_legacy led_mode=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf
4.1 The article in the page provided recomends doing rmmod but I was a bit apprehensive to do so, roboot worked fine for me.
P.S. In my previos post I mentioned that the wifi light was blinking all the time, I was wrong. What happened is that I was at work and the firewall there makes it doo that.
