Hi everyone,


I placed a iwl4965 into the mini pcie slot and power on my MX6Q SABRE SD board.After I entered linux,

I can find it by 'lspci':

root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:~# lspci

00:00.0 PCI bridge: Device 16c3:abcd (rev 01)

01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN  Network Connection (rev 61)

But it seems not to work,when I type 'ifconfig',it shows:

root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:~# ifconfig

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:04:9f:02:cd:2e

          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:


          RX packets:24 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

          TX packets:31 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000

          RX bytes:4245 (4.2 KB)  TX bytes:4400 (4.4 KB)


lo        Link encap:Local Loopback

          inet addr:  Mask:

          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1

          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0

          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

And during start up,I found some related Information--->
