Intel 3945 Wireless on Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)

Doesn't work.

Using the latest firmware ucode doesn't help.
Installing backported restricted modules helped temporarily.
Latest Ubuntu kernel 2.6.13 doesn't help.
Latest linux 2.6.30-r8 kernel doesn't help.

It works!

I reinstalled from the CD but this time didn't select the box to automatically log in at boot. That is the only thing I think I did differently. Apart from sitting within a meter of the router, that is.
