Configure Intel PRO / Wireless 3945ABG in Debian

This article serves to try to resolve some cases where they have problems in setting up wireless networks (RSF), with an Intel PRO / Wireless 3945ABG.
I think that whoever installed Debian in a more manual, ie the installation image Netinst, as was my case, you may have this problem. If you followed the article I published (see here) and have a FSR of this model, which surely must have had this problem.

Add the following repository to / etc / apt / sources.list, if you have not already:
deb lenny main non-free

apt-get update
apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi

Restart the PC, and now you should see the card when RSF running ifconfig.
From here you just add the network through NetworkManager GUI application.

Some useful commands:
iwconfig - shows the interfaces of the active RSF.
ifconfig - Shows the configuration of network interfaces.
ifconfig wlan0 - Shows the interface configuration RSF wlan0.
ifconfig eth0 down - Disables the network interface eth0 wired
