Well This is awesome. I know that I was ranting and raving a bit in the first post due to my frustrations.
After posting this message it occured to me that the currrent configuration Ubuntu like Feisty seems
to look/search for the most popular technology in use at the time, not the most cutting edge.
This being said
'lspci' Returns the the 4965 card.
modprobe says that both the 3945 and 4965 .ko are installed. I figured if Ubuntu was staying true to itself then,
that the 3945 must be loaded, and that the 4965 is probably only for the 4965n card which is misleading
on the intellinuxwireless.org website.
that being said, I ran
sudo modprobe -r iwl3945
to remove that driver package
to believe it or not, load the driver for my card.
No Fuss, No Muss
And thank The guy upstairs that I didn't have to recompile the Kernel.
Plus, WPA2 was supported out of the box. Performance is a bit slower than in Windows
but this is only marginal and I believe it can be overcome by installing the intel
Linux optimization package which I'm told improves performance.
There's also and IRQ Balancing program but I'm a bit wary on that.
The only issue I have with GUSTY is that the filesystem driver is a bit harsh on the hard drive.
I believe this may have something to do with the fact the HDD is using perpendicular
recording technology, but don't quote me on that.
Linux is AWESOME as ever.
