A new iwl6000-firmware package that works with the iwlagn driver in the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernels to enable support for Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6000 Series AGN Adapters is now available.
iwlagn is a kernel driver module for the Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN, 5100AGN, 5300AGN, 5350AGN, 5150AGN, 1000BGN and 6000AGN series of devices. The iwlagn driver requires firmware loaded on the device in order to function.
This new iwl6000-firmware package provides the firmware required by iwlagn to enable Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6000 Series AGN Adapters (aka iwl6000 devices). (BZ#526292)
All users of the iwlagn driver, especially those requiring iwl6000 support, should install this new package, which provides this enhancement.
