Hello

wireless card work ...
i have gentoo , i installed

I have HP dv6635en
my card is shown in lspci like that:
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 4229 (rev 61)

Of course i compiled kernel properly (again I guess so)
lsmod shows:
iwl4965               195176  0
mac80211              119692  1 iwl4965
cfg80211               15056  1 mac80211

when i run :
wpa_supplicant -B -ieth1 -Dwext -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
i get:
