I get the following error in dmesg when I try to use my Intel iwl4965 card with the 2.6.28 kernel
[ 2663.532142] iwlagn: Microcode SW error detected. Restarting 0x2000000.
[ 2665.745793] iwlagn: No space for Tx
[ 2665.745798] iwlagn: Error sending SENSITIVITY_CMD: enqueue_hcmd failed: -28
[ 2665.745800] iwlagn: SENSITIVITY_CMD failed
I'm using the 220.127.116.11(stable) microcode on an amd64 machine, I get the same error with the 18.104.22.168 microcode
Steps to Reproduce:
1. bring up the wireless interface and connect to a wireless network
the wireless card appears to still be connected to the wireless network but any connection attempts across the interface will time out
connections across the interface should have gone through
The card works fine with the 2.6.27-gentoo and 2.6.26-tuxonice kernels
the wicd daemon is normally used to connect to wireless networks, but without it, the same problem occurs

Thank you for report Julian. Please enable CONFIG_IWLWIFI_DEBUG in your kernel and load module with modprobe iwl4965 debug=0x43fff, reproduce bug and show us output.
This issue was discussed for a very long time at ubuntu (with no resolution):
and probably similar issue was reported upstream by redhat user:
but no much progress done there, so, could you report your issue upstream:
and tell us URL so we could track the progress there?
bug reported upstream here: http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1923
Upstream bug was assigned as duplicate of http://bugzilla.intellinuxwireless.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1918 and duplicate is marked as needinfo. Unfortunately without upstream we can do nothing here, so I'll set status of this bug to be the same as upstream.
