Debian :: BCMxx - Wireless Isn't Working - NetworkManager Doesn't Even Detect A Wireless Card

Jul 14, 2010

I just got myself a Dell Inspiron 1440. And decided to install my favorite distro Debian. I got the installation to go with no issue and all seems to be working fine. However the wireless isn't working. NetworkManager doesnt even detect a wireless card. I followed the instructions here and installed the b43-fwcutter and then issued the modprobe b43 and modprobe b43legacy commands. Then I issued the iwconfig command and this was the output.

[Code].....

Also, I've been doing some research and found out about some file located /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. So I looked in mine and found out that only my eth0 is added.

Networking :: Gentoo - Wireless Card Working With NetworkManager ?

Apr 13, 2009

I just got my Airlink AWLH5025 to connect using the instructions provided by Gentoo Wiki's article on Wireless Networking. I'd like to use NetworkManager, but I'm running into problems - launching it kills my connection, and even though it finds my network it won't connect to it.

Ubuntu :: Live Lucid Doesn't Detect Wireless Card ?

Sep 10, 2010

I own an EeePC 701; right now I'm giving 10.04.1 a test run on it, using a live usb.

The EeePC has an Atheros wireless card, but live Lucid doesn't detect it. Here's the output from a ifconfig command:

Code:

Will the card be detected by a properly-installed Lucid? Is there some package I need to install so I can use wireless? Or should I steer clear of installing Lucid on my EeePC?

Debian Hardware :: Installing Driver For Broadcom Wireless Card Doesn't Work

Aug 29, 2010

I'm very new to Debian (and Linux in general), and am currently taking a Linux course at college... I'm trying to get Debian running on my MacBook Pro (late 2009 model) and it's been complicated but I've got the operating system installed on it... I'm just having a few problems, the biggest right now of which is my wireless card, which doesn't work. So, I found instructions on the Debian Wiki for getting the driver for it, but it's not compiled already and I have little knowledge of manually installing stuff through Linux...

Debian :: BCM4312 Wireless Card Installed But Not Working

Jun 4, 2010

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 that has a Broadcom BCM4312 wireless card installed. I do not have access to a wired connection to the web so any thing I have to install is a download on my windows machine and then transfer that to the debian machine. I just finished installing Debian Squeeze but can not get my wireless card to scan for any networks. I found a tutorial at [URL] and followed the steps there. Finding all the dependances and installing them one by one (took me all day). My wireless card still will not scan for networks. After doing a 'sudo ifconfig eth1 up' it still will not scan for networks.

Output from ifconfig:
raygo75@RayGo-2:~$ sudo ifconfig
eth1

How do I get around this? It wants to get something from [URL] and I do not have internet access. It looks to me like it just wants to download the wl dirver, again, which I have done in the previous instructions I found. I am a retired UNIX (hp-unix) administrator so I know my way around the system.

I installed a Debian Lenny command line only install, I installed ndiswrapper from a etch .deb file I found on the internet but I can't find out how to get it working. I tried how tos on other sites but they didn't work, I need to get that card working before I can install a GUI.

Debian Hardware :: Wireless Card - FWCutter Not Working?

May 15, 2010

I am pretty new to Linux still. I have a desktop I'm trying to set up as a Linux machine. I'm apparently running a testing version of squeeze (I was running lenny I thought too many updates?). Anyway, I've been trying various things all night to try to get my wireless card to work. The system tells me I have a Broadcom BCM4318. When I run dmesg I get this:

[ 496.640869] b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to [URL] and download the latest firmware (version 4).
[ 619.374662] input: b43-phy0 as /class/input/input25

[619.416638] b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode5.fw" not found or load failed.

Over and over. When I head to the website, it tells me to run b43-fwcutter. I've tried installing that and it says it installs fine but nothing ever changes. Everything I've found says that should work so I can't really find any suggestions for what to do if it doesn't.

Debian Hardware :: RT2860 Wireless Card Not Working

Jun 1, 2011

I just installed Debian after I became fed up with Ubuntu. I'm trying to get my wireless card to work so I can move my computer back to it's proper place. Right now I have to put it right next to the router so the Ethernet cable can reach. Anyways, I've had trouble with this card before, so I did a quick google search. I found this: [URL]. I followed the instructions, and the thing at the top of the panel shows a list of wireless networks. When I try to connect to mine, it asks me for authentication. When I give it authentication, it idles for a while before asking me again.

Here's some system information:
uname -a
Linux max-pc 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Wed May 18 23:13:22 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
lsmod | grep rt2860sta
rt2860sta 454573 1
crc_ccitt 1323 1 rt2860sta .....

From what I recall, when I used Ubuntu it was called ra0. Could this have something to do with it?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: NetworkManager Doesn't Configure Default Route And Nameserve

Nov 15, 2009

yesterday I installed openSUSE 11.2 on my laptop. But I'm having problem getting the wifi configured properly. During the installation I got the message "No network running" (which I also saw after the installation when using the network configuration module of YaST after switching from ifup to NetworkManager). After installation NetworkManager seemed to work fine, it detected my wifi card, found the network, and I could even connect to it. Then the problems began, no Internet connection. The first thing I tried was pinging Google which yielded an "unknown host" message. So I checked /etc/resolv.conf, to look for the DNS servers, which where missing.

I added them manually and tried again. Still no luck, so I started pinging my router, which worked, tried again pinging Google using one of there IP addresses, which failed. So I ran route to find out which routes where being used, this one gave an unexpected result, because it only showed the route to the local network (I'm not sure about the loopback one, because this was also a lot of times missing when testing):

Debian :: Where To Find The Fw-detect Command ? (for Firmware / Wireless Detect)

Jan 12, 2010

Code...
To find the appropriate firmware without knowing the make or brand of your wireless chip, you can use the command:

#fw-detect

But apparently debian package do not offer this useful tool, well, certainly for sidux exclusively.

Is there a package of fw-detect eventually?

Debian Hardware :: Wheezy Doesn't Properly Support Proprietary Firmware For Wireless Card

Mar 17, 2015

I recently installed the XFCE spin of Debian (amd64) on my Lenovo L440. I tried installing it before, but apparently the 3.2 kernel that ships with Wheezy doesn't properly support the proprietary firmware for the wireless card, blah blah. So I wound up using Windows 8.1 for a bit, and then Fedora (boo). Anyway, with the wheezy-backports kernel (3.16.7-ckt4-3~bpo70+1) everything works like a charm. Everything, that is, apart from the sound card — the entire system is completely mute. Well, apart from the system beeper. I searched the forum and found another thread, but that guy was (for some reason) just running dwm — I figured XFCE might feature a more complete sound system. But maybe the output he gave will be useful in my case as well:

Code: Select alleirik@gerhardsen:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: HDMI [HDA Intel HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: HDMI [HDA Intel HDMI], device 7: HDMI 1 [HDMI 1]
 
[code]...

I also tried running alsactl init (as root), which doesn't appear to have made any difference.

Fedora Hardware :: Cannot Detect Ralink Wireless Card?

Nov 11, 2010

I recently purchased an MSI A5000 notebook, but regrettably it happens to use an obscure branded wireless card that's given me quite a bit of frustration to get working. I do have a bit of history behind this card that might help to solve this problem. First of all the card is a Ralink rt3090STA, and the manufacturer does provide a linux driver for this card (available here)

I was using Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit until last week, when I decided that I would like to try using a 64 bit system. I would prefer to use fedora instead of Ubuntu for the time being. Ubuntu had some major problems recognizing the card for some time before I was able to get it to work. The process I used to resolve the issue on my Ubuntu system has not proven successful on Fedora 13 x64, and I would like any help I can get to try to resolve this problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Detect Wireless Card On HP Laptop

Jul 19, 2010

I'm on an HP Pavillion dv4-1125nr with a Broadcom BCM 4312 network card.

I only have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on this computer.

ifconfig reports:

Code:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1e:ec:b5:b4:85
inet addr:192.168.0.5 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::21e:ecff:feb5:b485/64 Scope:Link

[Code]....

It isn't even detecting the wireless card, and the network manager will only let me connect to wired networks (I'm connected to my router via ethernet cable right now).

I've pressed the LED killswitch but it does nothing (doesn't change from orange to blue nor does it have any noticeable effect on the network manager or the reports of the above 2 commands).

Ubuntu Networking :: Doesn't Seem To Detect Wireless Connections?

Apr 22, 2011

i'm using a dell n5010 recently i installed ubuntu9.10 in my laptop and it doesn't seem to detect wireless connections, so, i googled it and downloaded a driver from broadcom and tried to install it as per the authors instructions and nothing seems to work well, the broadcom drivers are not detected in the additional drivers and when i try to install linux-wlan-ng tarballs it doesn't seem to work even, though i have gcc(i think thats it), so, i installed my windows driver through nsdgtk but it says that it is "unable to see if hardware is present" but, when i click ok on the error the wireless network applet says the hardware is present and when i click the network configuration tool it gives the error message "could not find a network configuration tool" and after configuring my network with network tools in administration it says "no wireless extensions" when i type 'iwconfig' and there is no ip address when i type "ipconfig".

OpenSUSE Wireless :: NetworkManager Only Shows VPN Tab But No Wireless Or Wired Connections

May 31, 2011

I remember that I did configure my desktop PC for wired and wireless connections since openSUSE 11.2, 11.3 and 11.4. Currently I have openSUSE11.4 x86_64 KDE. Today I happen to notice that the icon for NetworkManager in the taskbar has been replaced with a red X. I discovered that Network Manager only shows VPN tab, whereas Wired and Wireless tabs are greyed out. The strange thing is I still have Internet connection with the CAT5 cable being plugged in. I can still configure wired and wireless connections via YAST but I cannot fix Network Manager settings.

Debian Installation :: Installer Doesn't Detect Ethernet Card

Dec 19, 2010

I am trying to install Debian Lenny (64 bit) on my brand new Toshiba laptop (intel i3, 3 GB RAM) and for some reason the installer cannot detect the ethernet card. This is the error message I get:"No Ethernet card was detected. If you know the name of the driver needed by your Ethernet card, you can select it from the list."And then there's a list which is quite long -- and I cannot replicate it here. But I want to know why the installer cannot find the ethernet card on its own or find the appropriate driver. In any case how can I fix this problem?
