How to connect Slacko 5.6 to wlan? Sub_title: Thinkpad T61 with an iwl4965 card/interface
I'm not sure whether my problem depends on hardware or software.
It's a thinkpad T61 with an iwl4965 card/interface. As long as I do not force the card in an ad-hoc mode, the reconnection works fine. When the card was in ad-hoc mode, the managed connect does not work in puppy slacko 5.6. Booting the laptop in ubuntu there's no problem to connect to the wlan. Even after turning the laptop off and rebooting the router, the managed connection in puppy does not work. Not with SNS, Frisbee or Drougal. I have no idea.
Here's the sns_wireless_log:

Any help or hints are welcome. Thanks in advance,
