sorry for the delay - please do submit a bug at to enable us

The error you get is strange - the reason why the channel could not be
set was because the device is not considered to be ready. Yet, from your

Could you please add a print to the function
iwl4965-base.c:iwl4965_is_ready to see what the value of priv->status
