Summary0006305: iwlwifi firmware Centrino Wireless-N 1000 rubbish
DescriptionHad same issue with CentOS 6.3 iwlwifi firmware. See ticket http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=5834

In short, after upgrade today from CentOS 6.3 to 6.4 wlan0 would not connect to wireless network.

After workaround (see below), connected to wireless network w/out issue.

From previous ticket (see ref. above), I looked at kernel-ml from ElRepo but kernel-ml-firmware-3.8.2-1 does not contain any firmware for the iwlwifi-1000.

An updated/functioning iwlwifi-1000-5.ucode firmware is needed but I can't find where to pull it from. Open to suggestions.

__The setup__
Kernel: 2.6.32-358.0.1.el6.x86_64
iwlwifi firmware from iwl1000-firmware-39.31.5.1-1.el6.noarch

Steps To ReproduceUpgrade to CentOS 6.4 and boot kernel 2.6.32-358.0.1.el6.x86_64. Try to connect to wireless network via an NetworkManager Wireless profile to open/unencrypted wireless network.
Additional InformationWork around:
sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi
cd /lib/firmware
sudo mv iwlwifi-1000-5.ucode iwlwifi-1000-5.ucode.backup
sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi

This forces iwlwifi driver to use the iwlwifi-1000-3.ucode firmware found in /lib/firmware which does work.
