Debian Hardware :: Can't Connect To Wireless With Intel 2200
Jun 12, 2011
I just changed over from Ubuntu to Debian Squeeze and now my WiFi doesn't work. My computer is a Toshiba Satellite and the wireless card is Intel 2200bg. I think that's the name of it. That's the driver, anyway. My router is using WPA2, and using iwlist scan, I can see the network just fine. When I try to connect, though, it starts to connect for a while, says it's validating authentication, then says it fails. I've triple-checked my password and it's right.

I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.
I have an IBM Thinkpad T60, running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) with a dual boot of Windows XP. I am having trouble getting it to connect to my home wireless network, which uses WEP. It connected fine at my university when I first installed Lucid, but has not connected at home. I can see the network in the panel applet, with a good signal strength, but when I try to connect it repeatedly asks me for my key and never actually connects. I had this problem shortly before I installed Lucid, though it was working for a long time previously. I'm not sure what update caused it to stop working because I was at my university at the time, and it works fine there even now, so I didn't realize it right away.
I doubt this is a hardware issue because I can connect to the same network when I boot into Windows. I have seen posts about similar problems on the forums, but couldn't find any solutions that helped me.
Below is the information the wireless help guide said to post. Machine Brand and Model: IBM Thinkpad T60
I'm trying to set up ubuntu on my netbook, the brand and make is obscure, essentially, this is a no-name brandless build from china, but a pretty decent lappy. Atom N270 Intel 945GSE based. initially it was equipped with a 3DSP wifi/bluetooth mPCIe combo card, which is proprietary and didn't work on ubuntu (didn't even show up as a device), so I got an intel 4965agn based on compatibility list somewhere in the wiki.
The problem I have is that I see networks, but can't connect at home or at work or anywhere, it just hangs in the connecting status and then throws the authentication popup at me again (pw is all correct). I tried looking around at similar problems, some have wpa_supplicant related issues, but doesn't seem to be the same as mine.
I tried creating an unsecured network using my macbook's airport, and same thing happened with ubuntu... hangs in connecting status then drops, so it doesn't seem to be WPA. I don't have the device on me to do all the iflist iwlist checks for you, but if you could give me some clues, I'll post back when I get home.
I am new to Linux. About 72 hours in, and I must say. I am quite impressed. Except for a small issue. I cannot seem to figure out how to get my wireless card working. I have used the bcm43xx technique with no avail. And am working on ndswrapper. The good news is I think I have the .sys file that works. But I don't have the .inf. However any way I could make this work would be great. Below I have posted my lspci stats.

working to sort out the damn wireless for too long. Mine in cent05 5.2 . network manager is on and I can see the icon on tray. It list all the wireless connections too, but just won't connect. WPA encry is disabled. further details below:
I cant seem to understand what happens to my wifi networking, i just installed ubuntu 10.10 today (completely erasing windows) on my toshiba satellite m645. Seems like my wireless card (the specs say its intel 802.11a/g/n wireless LAN) will only randomly detect the available networks or will connect only for a few seconds just after i just turned it on, then it will disconnect.
I moved to Berlin recently and I got wireless internet through an access point. I'm supposed to use the laptop's built-in wireless netcard to access the internet. This usually works in windows (connection falls out from time to time), but I have yet to make it work in linux. I'm using OpenSuse 11.3 64-bit and the Knetwork manager. Most of the settings in the network manager are correct, but it keeps wanting to use system certificates for the server. By that I mean it keeps checking 'Use CA System certificates'.
So I can't choose the CA-certificate supplied by my internet provider. I keep removing the check-mark and pointing it to the 'hotzoneCA.der' certificate. I also got a 'personal' certificate, in lack of a better word. Its called 'jacob_collstrup.p12'. The Knetwork manager seems to accept the 'jacob_collstrup.p12' certificate, but not the other one.
I just put the certificates in a folder like this /jacob/home/hotzone/zertifikate/ I can see the network fine using the Knetwork manager, and the signal strength seems ok. Not too good, but it shouldn't be a problem. I might have messed up the system, since I first tried this guide, prior to experimenting with Knetwork Manager:
1. (had to run this one as su) Code: wpa_supplicant -w -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dndiswrapper -dd �t 2. (This was supposed to be put in a wpa_supplicant.conf file) Code: ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant ctrl_interface_group=0 opensc_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_opensc.so pkcs11_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_pkcs11.so pkcs11_module_path=/usr/lib/pkcs11/opensc-pkcs11.so
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

I have recently installed the intel-wireless-tools and now my laptop detects my wireless router and connects to it but when I go into a browser I can access the internet. If I connect to the wired network no problems(same router) no go on Wireless.
I've noticed that my wifi connection is significantly slower than my wired connection. Obviously wired is always faster, but when I boot in to windoze or use Mac, the difference between wired and wifi is negligible. I'm running Debian 8 testing on a Lenovo X201 with Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [Condor Peak] network card.
I just got a new laptop equipped with some weird (at the present) hardware.
=> Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N100 => Atheros Communication Device 1083
During the squeeze install no network harware was detected. (no wired, no wireless) On the net I read the wireless-N100 should be supported from the kernel 2.6.37 At last I tried Ubuntu 11.04 (LIVE) and the wifi was working. I also tried Fedora 15 (LIVE) and the wifi was also working. (kernel 2.6.38)But I want to stick to Debian (I am using it since Potato) What could I do to get at least the Wireless-N100 working ?
Are Intel wireless cards compatible with non-intel-based laptops? In my case I wish to upgrade the current Atheros-based mini pci express wifi card with the Intel 4965agn. It is an Asus 4520 with an AMD Athlon X2 processor and nvidia nForce chipset.
I am unable to get my intel pro/wireless 3945abg connected to my router. The firmware has been installed and at first was even able to connect, but now the access point doesn't even show up in network manager. I am currently able to connect using a USB wireless adapter, but for certain reasons, would prefer to use the former. I've looked over this page with no results.
I recently installed wicd on a notebook with Squeeze. I can connect to the wireless network at my place. However I cannot connect at my friend's place. It timed out with the message: "Connection failed. Cannot obtain ip address."
It is a Thomson router/modem and the key is a 10 digit 64bit Hex. I did not see 64bit Hex option in wicd. So, I tried all 3 WEP options and none of them worked. We can connect to the same network with another computer with Squeeze and NM and also with Windows. This is the first time I am using wicd.
When I start Gnome it automatically signs me on to my wireless network--but I would like to connect to my wireless without using gnome. I may be misinformed but I believe that I am not using gnome it I do not sign-on when the window pops up asking for my password and I switch to tty2.
Here is what I know.
I have a SSID name my interface is 802.11 (wlan0) my security is wpa/wpa2 and i have to enter a password. and my IPv4 setting is automatic my wireless driver is ath5k.
I tried to read the iwconfig man page--but I don't understand it enough. Could someone provide me an example of how I would connect to my wireless.
I am trying out the Debian 6.01 Live Cd but I can't get my wireless to work. This is on an old Dell C610 laptop running Windows XP, the wireless works fine under XP. Dell TrueMobile 1150 Series Mini PCI Card (on Texas Instruments PCI-1410 cardbus control).
Here's what I have done so far. Booted Live 686. Takes a long time on this old machine but finally loads with no apparent problems. My wireless network is detected- shows up in the list - 2SAT4, along with several others in the area. I click on it, after a bit it finally comes up with the wireless authentication form, I complete this with my WPA key and hit connect. This repeats without connecting.
I then goto edit connections, and make sure the wireless "auto 2SAT4" has "infrastructure" for mode and "automatic" for MTU. It does. I also make sure the Authentication is set to "Open System".
Looking at lsmod I can see that the orinoco module seems to be loaded, I think that is what this wireless card uses.
At terminal I do a "sudo iwconfig" and see that Eth0 has no ESSID or Access Point. I do the following:
I then do a "sudo iwconfig" and see that Eth0 still has no ESSID or Access Point. I then do a "sudo iwlist eth0 scan" and the response is "Interface doesn't support scanning" I then do a "sudo iwlist eht0 wpakeys" and the response is there are four keys available but they are all off.
I just installed Debian on my netbook and everything is working fine but the wireless. When I typed in the name of the network and the wep it said it failed and was probably not using dhcp. I went on with the installation and now I am not sure how to set up my wireless. I have an ASUS netbook.
Finally took the plunge and decided to give debian a go, not done so before as feared it would be too complicated. Net install went ok. Used to wiki to get me wireless up and running by copying those commands provided most of which made no sense (why the separate kernel image for wireless?).
Anyway seems to have worked so now to the problem I can't connect to my wireless network its not broadcasting so configured it manually the way I do in ubuntu through the net manager, it doesn't connect at all.
