I am a (somewhat) newbie to Linux (but have an extensive Windows background), and I have just installed Debian Squeeze in an old EeePc 701 4G using the netinst version only with the following packages:
Now I would like to install Debian in my main laptop, but I think it won't be able to connect to any wireless networks during setup and before installing firmware-brcm80211 and wireless-tools (its wireless card is a Broadcom 43224AG). That being, and to avoid connecting the computer directly to the router (it is not easy), I would like to bridge the EeePc's wireless connection to my laptop using a cable. I tried using the instructions found at the Debian Wiki, but I couldn't set it up properly.
I installed Debian sid recently. I installed the B43 driver and wireless is working just fine at home and elsewhere. I can't connect to the wireless networks at school though. There are two networks, one is unsecured (and you have to enter your login details after connecting - I can't connect at all though), the other is secured. I was previously using Ubuntu, with network manager, and I have all my settings the same for the secured network as I did in Ubuntu. In Ubuntu I can connect to both networks just fine. In Debian I can't.
I installed wheezy on my Acer Aspire One netbook and am unable to connect to wireless networks.Output of lspci shows this as my wireless card:
02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) I installed the firmware-atheros package to get the card up and running. Output of iwconfig shows I have a working interface:Quote:

I use network-manager-gnome to connect to my wireless networks, but I can only use it with a graphical environment, and it doesn't even work that well since it will drop the connection after a few minutes and I have to reconnect it manually, that means I cannot leave my computer downloading a big file all night since it will only download for a few minutes, does anyone know what package can I use to connect to my wireless without the need of network-manager, even if it's through command line?
I am fairly new to linux, I getting to grips with the offline and I am starting to be converted. The major problem I have is that I cannot get it to connect to my wireless network. I am using Fedora and my wireless card is the Belkin Wireless G Desktop Network Card - F5D7000uk (version 3000uk).
I am able to see the network and pick up the essid automatically through networkmanager or iwlist scan. I have tried to connect using Network manager: - it picks up the information and I submit my WEP key and the icon top right shows two green dots with a blue flame(?) rotating between them for a few minutes before asking for my key again.
And using the terminal commands.
Code: $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "BTHomeHub3-12GT" $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 key 563865428 then tried to test the connection using
Well the thing is i cannot connect to a wireless network, when i log in the nm-applet won't show, if i wait about 20 minutes it will show .. and if i clicked on it requires a password, when i enter the password it freezes!! i tried uninstalling the nm-applet and reinstalling it, didnt work
While staying at a hotel that offered wireless Internet connection connection I was not able to access their network. I contacted their technical support 800 number and was told that the north building server had been down for 26 hours. I moved to a south builing room. Same problem. I went to McDonald's, which had wi-fi connection. Same thing. My laptop was not able to make a connection.
My question is as follow:
How do I find out:
1) whether it is a problem with my new Ubuntu version (10.04)?
2) my wireless card in my laptop is no longer working? Are there any tests that I can run?
Basically, I just installed Fedora in my desktop (use it on my laptop), and have a big problem, which is that Fedora (13), detects my wireless card (Edimax nMAX EW-7728IN), but when I try to connect to my wireless networks (WEP & WPA) it hangs and asks again for the password. I know the problem isn't from my routers,since I'm right now connected via Fedora 13 in my laptop.
Since my update to OpenSuse 11.2 knetworkmanager refuses to connect to WEP enabled networks (worked fine with knetworkmanager 11.1). I am sure that I use the correct password and I tried on 3 different networks. The manager is connecting to open networks and WAP protected networks without problems. I saw on other forums that there were similar problems with previous versions of networkmanager. But I could not find a solution for my problem.
I just installed OpenSuSE 11.3 x86_64, and as I'm new to OpenSuSE I can't get my wireless to work. I believe it should work because it worked out of the box in Ubuntu (9.10 and 10.04)
At first I didn't see any network icon in the notification area, but after some googling figured out to enable NetworkManager instead of ifup. Now there is an icon, and clicking it I can see wireless networks, but when I try to connect it tries for a while, then seems to give up.
I have brought my son a samsung n150 mini laptop. It has a "realtek rtl8192e wireless lan 802.11n pci-e nic" card fitted to it. I have tried downloading the drivers from samsung and realtek, but still can't get it to connect. It see's the local connections but when i try to connect it says it is unable to.
I have a machine running Xubuntu [2.6.22-14-generic]. I have been trying to get this machine connected to wireless for ages, and I'm having another stab at it. So far I have install ndiswrapper and loaded the driver for a Linksys wireless adapter. The output of 'ndiswrapper -l' reports:
So as far as my newbie knowledge goes, I believe that step to be completed, correct?When I turn on the machine is type in
sudo sh modprobe ndiswrapper
to get the card running to where it will appear in the iwconfig dialog.The commands 'iwlist wlan0 scan' will list all the wireless networks around me, but I have been un-able to connect to any network, even unencrypted ones. I have tried to connect both through Wicd and command-line to no avail. For command-line I have used:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 down sudo dhclient -r wlan0 sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
With the final 'dhclient wlan0' commands, the following is returned:
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.pid with pid 134519120 Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.0.5 Copyright 2004-2006 Internet Systems Consortium
I have attempted to go ahead a step further and connect to an encrypted wireless network, however, I receive the same message, as well as another error message upon trying to enter the key, with the following code:
iwconfig wlan0 key s:"thekey"
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
I have an Atheros AR242x card. It can see my wireless network (WPA2). When i attempt to connect to the network it asks for the WPA2 passphrase. After entering the password it begins connecting but hangs up for about 3 minutes before saying wireless disconnected. The wireless worked for one day on a fresh install (Ubuntu 10.04)and then started doing this.
I have a WLAN Driver Azure Wave AW-NU222 Wireless LAN Card in my Medion computer.
After installing Ubuntu it seems to detect the wireless networks in my area. However, when I try to connect to my network, it tries for several minutes and then times out with no error message. I have set up the credentials and also tried removing the encryption (WPA-PSK) from the network itself, but it still doesn't connect.
Connect via an Ethernet cable is fine, and I know that the network is good because I can connect via my Windows Laptop and various other wireless devices.
I suspect it's due to drivers, but I'm having trouble downloading a driver which I can try and install using Ndiswrapper. The Medion website just a windows executable when I try and download the driver specific to my machine when I really need the .inf file.
Here is a situation I have never come across (though I have only been using linux since 2004).I am running ubuntu 10.04 and using Wicd Network Manager.I can connect to my WPA encrypted home network, but if I go to my coffee shop to use their unencrypted wifi - I cannot.Even using the terminal. I think it is the way the device sees the network - but I don't know how to fix it.I have a screenshot with wicd here:And one with connecting to the essid here:Afterwhich, dhclient was unable to obtain an ipaddress - just like wicd above.
My iphone connected to this network easily without encryption or needing to use the browser to authenticate, etc.Any ideas on how to fix this?Specs:Samsung NC10lspci:
I have a HP Mini1000 and recently switched over to Ubuntu. I followed the directions found here:[URL] However, I still cannot connect to wireless networks though my card seems to be scanning for them and finding them. I have tried connecting to open networks and ones that require authentication.
Got Ubuntu 11.4 installed on my Lenovo Thinkpad X220.Except very very rare cases i'm not able to establish awlan connection.Scanning is possible at all times, monitor mode works as well.Network Controler (lspci)
So I was the one who couldn't get their ethernet port to function properly. Most likely, this was the result of bad hardware since none of the community's suggestions for software fixes did anything. I believe this is probably true.Indeed, when I bought a cheap $10 wireless USB dongle, it immediately worked better than all the previous things. It detected networks, displayed network strength and even allowed me to attempt login.
The only problem now seems to be that it cannot login. I've rechecked the password countless times, but it just shows the 'connecting to wireless' animation for a minute or two and then poops out and says, 'disconnected'.I assume if everything is getting me this far, the driver is not the problem with the device. Is this a safe assumption?
I bought a Letux 400 mini netbook and it works fine except for wireless Ethernet. It finds wireless networks, including mine, and then pretends to connect, after asking for a password, but finally never connects. I tried reconfiguring the wireless network from g to b/g and finally to b only, but nothing changed. Cable connection works. Unfortunately all relevant Letux Web pages are hopelessly slow and certainly too slow to use the forum and ask questions there. why the thing doesn't connect and how to make it connect? If it recognises networks, shouldn't it be able to connect as well?
I've installed it no problems on my desktop and I really love it. Now I'm trying to install it on my Satellite and I'm having a couple of problems. When trying to connect to my wireless network, I can see my network, but it will just keep asking me for my WEP. I've confirmed that there is nothing wrong with the network or the password I've provided. Sometimes when I boot up, the network manager just says that the wireless networks are disconnected and can't find any. The wired connection always works just fine.
I have been trying to connect to a wireless network and cant get farther than the network settings window. I can do just about anything with WIN XP but decided Ubuntu was 100x better and more stable. I can't get Ubuntu to search for Wireless networks or connect to one i typed in manually.
For any one who wants to know: I am using a...
HP Probook 6555b (laptop) 2Gb RAM 160Gb HDD a/g/n wireless + BT XP PRO running side by side with UBUNTU desktop 10.04 LTS 2.09Gh AMD II P320 32-Bit system and FYI: I know "geek-speak" so no need to dumb-down or explain basic stuff.
so my wireless isn't working. My netbook wireless detects the available networks but when I try to connect it doesn't. The box that asks me to put in the password occasionally shows up but it still doesn't load. I even tried re-installing Ubuntu and didn't fix anything.I'm using kernel version 2.6.35-22-generic and
New Ubuntu user here, and I'm having difficulties connecting to my router at home. I've searched around the forum for a couple of hours now, to no avail. My router was originally not broadcasting ssid, so I turned broadcasting on. Now I can see the router, but when I enter a password (which I know is correct) nothing gets connected.
I have F15 and use networkmanager to connect to wifi networks. How do I edit the list of saved wireless networks that it tries to automatically connect to? I need to get rid of some networks that it is always trying to connect to.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Toshiba A200-12U laptop (with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless card), but networking is being problematic.I entered Network Configurations and tried to get 'Auto eth0' working -- I went to Edit > IPv4 settings and filled in 'Addresses' with the details of my connection:
Address: 192.168.1.254 (the local IP of my router) Netmask: 255.255.252.0 Gateway: 126.96.36.199
i'm running ubuntu 10.04. i've followed these instructions:[URL]that got the light for the wireless on my laptop to light up but it doesn't seem to be able to find any networks.when i click on "connect to hidden wireless network" and enter the details + encryption code. it spends a few minutes trying to connect before asking for my encryption code again but i know that the code i entered is right.i'm using a belkin router with wpa/wpa2 encryption. but i think it's a problem with the wireless on my laptop rather than a problem with my specific network because under windows on other machines in my house i can see some of my Neighbours networks
