Debian Hardware :: WiFi Card Not Recognized (Laptop HP 430 G2)
Sep 12, 2014
I'm a brand new user of Debian, and I just bought a (too much?) new laptop, the HP 430 G2. It seems to work great for almost everything, except that I don't have any wifi available.
I tried so many different things (without any success) that it would be hard to resume. But for now, all I have is a new installation (to avoid parasite installations of weird things), and a kernel updated to 3.16. I don't know if it's useful though...
The first element I notice is that I don't have the line with "Kernel driver in use...". Which seems to indicate that there's a problem with the kernel module (is that right?). But I don't know how to fix it...
The other thing that puzzles me with these last two commands is that according to this page, my wifi card is a Broadcom BCM43142. But it's not the result I get with the lspci command.
Anyway, I'm really lost, I don't know what to do, what to check, what to install. I don't want to go by random, testing all the different solutions I see on the web blindely. This is the reason why I ask it here.
i just thought the last few days about trying Ubuntu. so i did. i got a nice and fresh copy of Ubuntu Desktop version and installed it, everything worked great except my wireless usb 2.0 card. the only internet connection i have under windows is Wifi and i hoped that my dongle will be recognized by Ubuntu automatically...(naturally, it wasn't the case.)
so my adapter looks exactly like this one here, except for the color, it's white and it has my WISP's name written on it (i got it from them, along with a cd that offers win xp/98/me drivers...)
so even everest sees it's atheros and it's the Atheros AR5523 chipset.
i also have windows 7 64bit drivers if they help...
anyway, i can't get it to work and cannot access the internet any other way when on Ubuntu, so i have to use an already-saved driver..
so I had to reinstall Ubuntu.But now my Wireless card won't work. It used to work before (plug and play), and I have no problem with it when I boot from the CD.I cannot use my cable connection because as soon as I plug my computer in, the network crashes, the router doesn't respond, gets hot and refuses to work until I unplug it and let it cool off for 2 minutes.I'm using Ubuntu 10.10, Desktop PC.
Code: :~$ lsusb Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0846:4260 Netgear, Inc. WG111v3 54 Mbps Wireless [realtek TRL818B]
I have a problem to configure my wifi card, a dwa-110 from D-Link, it is not recognized when I launch System / network device control (only ethernet connections appear), and it is the same thing in Administration / network / network configuration. But if I launch administration / hardware / system devices, the last line is "Ralink 802.11 bg WLAN"... When I try to add in the window "network configuration" (from above) some new stuff, I specifying the kind of hardware (wireless) and when I have to enter the name of the card I don't see my card. On other OSes, I used ndiswrapper, but I wasn't able to install it on CentOS (dependencies required and it's hard with only a USB key to install the stuff...) How to see if the card is recognized, if I have to use ndiswrapper and so on. I have an internal PCI network card also, maybe it is this card which is recognized.
I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my IBM thinkpad a30p. now everything seems to work fine, except for the wifi card (edimax ew-7708il) i have. PCMCIA modules are loaded, but the card just doesn't appear in the network devices...
I have recently installed Squeeze on my 2009 Acer Aspire laptop and updated the wifi firmware and still do not have wifi connection, I wasn't too concerned as I thought I would just use a usb wifi adapter however it doesn't work with that either, yet that same adpater works with Squeeze on my 2007 Desktop computer
I have an emachines D620 laptop running Ubuntu 10.10 with a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01). I havent done anything with it and cant seem to get it to work. I know this because when I had visto on it the card worked, but know it says that its firmware is not enabled and ive tried installing the drivers using the Additional Drivers under Administration. I would like it to be working so I can use my laptop's internet.
I am using a Fujitsu Amilo pi3560 with a Realtek rtl8172 wireless card, and running the latest driver (rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0014.0115.2010). The OS is Ubuntu 9.10. Everything runs perfectly - when my laptop is connected with the power cord. But when I go battery the wireless disconnects after a few minutes. It then asks for the wpa password, searches for the router, asks again, and so on indefinitely, until I reboot and it all replays once more.
I recently bought a HP g62x laptop for myself. It sports a decent Core i3 processor, 4 gigs of RAM and a 500GB HDD. It also came with Wireless-N, a real bonus because I am using a Wireless-N router. The chipset is a Ralink 5390. It came preinstalled with Windows 7, and everything works fine in there (obviously).
I then proceeded to install Ubuntu 10.10 x64 a few days ago (this is before Natty came out) and everything worked . . . except WLAN. So I plugged in via Ethernet and went looking and found that I clearly wasn't the first to discover this issue. I found a guide here that I followed to download the Ralink Linux driver (which is stated to support my chipset), configure, compile, and install. Everything went perfectly, I restarted; lo and behold, I have a list of access points. I went to connect to mine, entered the password, and now the animated "WiFi wave" logo keeps going indefinitely until you click it, and it freezes for a few minutes. It will unfreeze if you let it sit but clicking it causes the same freeze again.
I couldn't really care less about a WiFi icon freezing, but a.) it freezes everything else in the system up, not just the icon, and b.) it never actually completes the WiFi connection. I really, really don't want to be forced to use Windows because of a crappy WiFi driver!
Since Natty came out I installed that and I can't even compile the driver without fatal errors, so I reverted to 10.10 and everything is the same as it was before. Note that this is a clean Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop Edition 64-bit install, nothing updated/modified/changed besides (attempting) to install this driver.
I am trying to install Realtek RTL8192E wireless drivers for Toshiba satellite 510 in Fedora 14 KDE SPIN. I have been searching it for long time. I am not getting any tutorials or any methids to get this sorted.
I've got a problem on my Debian, I've tried installing all the correct alsa packages and all packages that have the word sound or audio description. The problem that is happening here is that when I go into settings and click on sound in Gnome, it appears to have a dummy output and in fact, a few weeks ago, the sound was working properly. Now, I believe, that after an update, the sound card was not recognized. Used the lspci command in root mode, and showed my sound card which is onboard. I'll leave the model below it, because I've tried everything and could not solve anything.
Code: Select allroot@debian:/home/weiller# lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 4 Series Chipset DRAM Controller (rev 03) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation NM10/ICH7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01) 00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation NM10/ICH7 Family PCI Express Port 1 (rev 01)
I'm trying to make things work on my laptop. Almost done, but there is one hardware issue left. I have a Intel HD4400 graphic card. But it seems that it is not recognized. I had an issue loading Gnome3.
Code: Select allGNOME 3 Failed to Load
Unfortunately GNOME 3 failed to start properly and started in the fallback mode.
This most likely means your system (graphics hardware or driver) is not capable of delivering the full GNOME 3 experience
Another thing : Code: Select all$ grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log [ 29.117] (EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPUTCMAP: Invalid argument
Also, if I go in "applications" ->"system tools" -> "Preferences" -> "System settings" and then in "Details, under Graphics I have "Drivers : unknown", "Experience : Fallback".
And as a consequence, I can't use dual-screen. If I plug another sreen, I have an exact copy, not even with a good resolution.
I search on the web for solutions, but I didn't understand much. I don't know what Xorg is, x-window, etc...
I tried to install the latest stable version of Debian (download yesterday : Debian Wheezy 7.4.0) on my new computer Fujitsu Celsius W530.The version installed is exactly this one (given by the commande "uname -a") :
PCNAME 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.54-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux => A Debian Wheezy 64 bit
I have a problem with the Intel ethernet card : I217-LM (the model was verified on the Fujitsu specifications and also on the Windows 8 I use on another partition).During the install procedure, Debian did not find the ethernet card.I continued the install without it and after I tried to make it found.I got a Linux driver in the Intel Web Site but I saw after that Debian loaded yet this driver (e1000e), so I did not install the driver from Intel (I needed to get linux-headers and to compil the files).
So when I force the system to load the driver, it gives no error but the device is still not found when I try to bringup the network interface.URL...
- understand why I see the Device (with "lspci" command) and the module "e1000e" (I tried also the "e1000" one) loaded with "lsmod" command ? - make the card work to allow my debian for connecting to internet ?
Here some commands which can show you the problem : Code: Select all~# lsmod | grep e1000 e1000e 120822 0 root@PC-DEV-JB-debian:~# ll /lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/e1000e/e1000e.ko -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 184K févr. 2 02:04 /lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/e1000e/e1000e.ko
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04. The drive was formatted when I installed so it's 100% Ubuntu. The only major problem I have encountered is that Ubuntu will not recognize my SD cards. I really need to access these cards, all my film footage is on there. I think the internal SD card reader (If such a thing exists) would have been deleted during the installation process. I am a greenthumb to Ubuntu and have never used it before so I am rather stuck...
I have a Lenovo T440p.I am on Debian Jessie. I use KDE as my desktop environment. My Wifi adapter is Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7260. I have configured my laptop not to suspend itself when the lid is down. I can verify that the laptop still runs when the lid is down, because I can hear the music if it is already playing. However the Wifi always disconnects when the lid is down. If I am downloading a file, it always gets interrupted.
I have installed Ubuntu (both 10.10 and 11.04 pre-release) on my laptop but my battery is not recognized and it is detected as a desktop system rather than a laptop. I have tried the cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state method but the directory doesn't exist. I have tried another guide to paste the battery info into this directory but it doesn't allow me to do that and says that the directory doesn't exist, even though I'm trying to make it. I tried it in root nautilus and even on an install of Lubuntu (with a root file manager) but it still failed to budge. I really don't know what to do as I have tried all the guides on the internet that I could find.
I booted Debian in Live mode on a USB to try to see if the internet will work on my Linux machine before I actually install it (there is some tricky internet software where I live that I must overcome, but that will come in another thread).
Currently I have no WiFi whatsoever. When I go into the internet access menu I only get back the fact that there is a wired connection that's possible (theoretically, I should be able to also see networks to which I can connect to, but I don't). Also, it's impossible for me to actually get a wired connection going, unless I can somehow give it through my Windows laptop.
When I did some research, the people seem to say that I need to update the driver after enabling the use of non-free software; I can't do that since I have no connection in the first place.
The OS recognizes that the PCE exists (I am using asus pce-ac68), when I did "lspci" command it told me I have BCM4360 and BCM43225 chips.
I think I found the drivers here "[URL] ......" but I don't think my chip is listed there (there is no BCM4360 or BCM43225 on that list). What to do with those drivers, I mean how to compile them and install them on a Debian machine, and I'm not sure I can even install them on a live boot (but I want to make sure my internet works on the live boot before I actually install the OS).
I have some problems with my WiFi card I'm configuring for Debian Wheezy. I've used it in other computers successfully (It's a USB device), but this box doesn't seem to be able to recognize it or use it properly.
I've identified the card using Code: Select alllsusb with the output Code: Select allBus 001 Device 002: ID 7392:7811 Edimax Technology Co., Ltd EW-7811Un 802.11n Wireless Adapter [Realtek RTL8188CUS]
I've used the Wheezy docs to download the firmware necessary and it apparently is supposed to run fine with this firmware, but nothing is working. There was mention to a GitHub repository of a fixed version of the driver in question, which didn't work either.
I'm was trying to choose between GNOME and KDE for version 8. However both the live DVD's fail to pick up the Wifi card on my system. I am also unable to use certain basic commands such as ifconfig on the live CD. I am completely new to Linux and Debian (of course). Pardon me for the hand holding. This will be my first install of a Linux system.
What steps I can take to ensure that the Wifi card and the network card will be supported - hardware compatibility test maybe? Is there a way to try before installing? This will be a dualboot with Windows 8.1

I have an intel 7265 AC wireless card. When I try to download something my estimated download time is tripled almost every 5 mins.And when I play an online game from steam (cs:go or dota2) the ping goes to 250-300 ms which generally stays around 80ms. I'm using debian jessie. So far, I've tried turning of the power save mode of the card, changing ISP and router but none of them worked. I have a fairly good internet connection (I'm using it with my other machines without a problem) so I don't think the connection or router is the problem. Below you can find some information about system.
I am trying to get an engenius EUB 9801 going in Debian 6.0 Stable. I have searched this forum, and other linux forums but no luck. It is based on a Ralink rt3572sta chip, the 2.4/5ghz 300mbps wireless N chipset. I will post the link to the Ubuntu forum, where they have been able to get it working under 10.10.[URL]..the link to the linux chipset driver is:[URL]... It would be nice to have this natively supported under Debian, as I am going to use my server as a glorified wirelessN router...
