Your device uses the iwl3945 driver. I'm going to enable both iwl3945 and iwl4965 in the next update to the centosplus kernel (kernel-plus).

You can of course install the kmod package that will be provided by ELRepo ( https://elrepo.org/bugs/view.php?id=959 ).

@pseud

I have built the plus kernel with iwl3945 and iwl4965 enabled. It is available for testing at:

https://people.centos.org/toracat/kernel/8/plus/bug16635/

(version 4.18.0-80.11.2.el8_0.centos.plus.bug16635)

Please give it a try and let us know if this kernel works for you.

Did you have a chance to test the plus kernel?
