Debian :: Setting Up Asus N13 USB Wireless Adapter
Jul 5, 2011
I currently know next to nothing about networks in Linux (yes I am working on that). I have just brought a Asus n13 wireless adapter after failing to get my laptop wireless working. I am using the 2.6.32-5 Debian squeeze kernel. The device connected once after I did the following:
ifconfig wlan0 up
The device connected to wifi and was working fine. I then shutdown and rebooted to see if it would automatically connect on start up and now, although nothing seems to have changed and even after I repeated the steps above it did not connect. The network manager applet as well as listing the asus adapter(as ralink 802.11 WLAN) lists a Texas instruments PCI1410 pc card cardbus controller which i didn't before.
This is the output of iwconfig:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.

I recently purchased an Asus n10 wireless usb adapter to use with my media server, running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx). After spending several hours today with many of the threads (especially this one about the Asus n13) it seems that I've run out of ideas.
My network is running a hidden (non-broadcast) SSID ("Potato") with wpa2 personal encryption.
Here is the relevant information from lsusb:
Code: Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0b05:1786 ASUSTek Computer Inc.
Iwconfig follows. The rest of the values, like link quality & etc, are all zero:
recently I bought a an Asus n13 usb wireless adaptor. It came with the linux drivers installed and some brief instructions, but make failed and I don't know why. I am running ubuntu 10.10 (64bit) and gcc version 4.4.5.The error messages from make
[angus@angus-laptop 2009_0811_RT3070_Linux_STA_v22.214.171.124_USB-N13]$ sudo make make -C tools make: Entering directory `/home/angus/bin/drivers/2009_0811_RT3070_Linux_STA_v126.96.36.199_USB-N13/tools' gcc -g bin2h.c -o bin2h
configuring my ASUS USB-N13 Wireless-N Adapter I was able to get the drivers installed as per the instructions I found in the forum but I'm not sure how to get the ASUS USB-N13 Wireless-N Adapter to be recognized by the drivers and how to configure it to connect to the Internet I tried following the instructions it came with but I did not understand the steps to set it up it was like chinese to me no clue what it said I am running Redhat Linux 9.0 on the laptop
I just got my desktop set up with Ultimate Edition, an OS based on Ubuntu. For more information on my OS, please click: here. I am using UE version 2.6, which is based on Ubuntu kernel 2.6.32, so any Ubuntu users.I've gotten my wireless usb keyboard and mouse to work fine, and my speakers are ok, so I know my usb hardware is working properly. The Situation: I can't get my new ASUS USB-N10 wireless adapter to work. My computer hasn't recognized it, and there are no usable instructions on the driver CD for installing the device in Linux.ASUS claims this adapter works on Linux systems with 2.6-type kernels, but I've been trying for 2 weeks to no avail.
After had installed opensuse 11.3 I am about toset a usb stick and connecting to internet. I can connect with ethernet but as I want to have also wireless internet I bought a LEVELONE WUA-0605 wireless usb adapter witch I can't setup and connect... The only data witch I was able to find are:
I just installed a fresh install of firmware-8.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso. During installation the wireless setup utility located my wifi-network and upon entering my WPA password it said it was connected. It didn't work however so I plugged in my ethernet cable and continued the install process hoping it would magically start working after that. No luck.
I went from an Arch Linux install with working wifi, and I dual-boot my box with Windows 7 with working wifi, so I know it's not the card or the distance from the router.
tonight my laptop with debian installed is no longer reading my wireless card. It has been working for quite some time and I really have no clue as to why it stopped. I did install some updates today, but they seemed pretty minimal. I got the card to work following the same thing I did to get it to work in ubuntu which can be found URL...So what can I do to figure out why it stopped recognizing it or to fix it?
I have a Asus N13-usb adapter and i am running ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop. I tried all those commands that you have posted but it led me nowhere. I was wondering if you can help me start off from scratch. I have typed lsub and it showed the device. I followed this thread [URL]and i did it up the part where you downloaded the driver. but i was not able to go further once i typed in the command :
DELL Inspiron 15 3543 (3000 Series)5th Generation Intel Core i5-5200U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.70 GHz).I have installed Debian 8 and received following message relating missing firmware files rtl_nic/rtl8106e-1.fw (EDIT: I understand this is not wireless adapter, but wired adapter which appears to be working ok as I can connect to internet ok.)The wireless adapter wasn't recognised so I used LAN cable and completed the install.this is details of wireless adapter....
Get my Tenda 311U Wireless USB working with my custom Debian LXDE system (Refer to signature for more)? When I insert the USB adapter nothing happens. PCManFM file manager does not even detect it. When I was installing my Debian system I made sure to check "Laptop" but not "Desktop Environment" and "Standard system utilities." Here is the link to the product page: [url]
I am a complete novice when it comes to Linux. I have just installed Debian 5 and i would like to get the wireless adapter working. I have a Ralink RT2070 54Mbs Wireless USB Adapter and the driver disk. What are the steps/commands i must follow to install the driver please?
I am running Fedora 14. I've had an ASUS wireless adapter working for a few months now, with no problems. Today, I installed updates, one of which required a computer reboot (not just logging out and back in). I rebooted the computer, and when it came back up, the wireless adapter did not work.The adapter is visible after lsusb, but there is no wireless showing after iwconfig. What happened? How do I fix it?
Apparently, the wireless adapter Realtek 8171 uses the rtl8192se driver, which is currently available only as source from Realtek's website. Is building a driver equal to building a package? Should I follow the same cautions, say these ones?
I downloaded from the following link: [url]... etinst.iso and i have a working flash drive Debian installer. I would like to be able to integrate driver support for my wireless adapter or my gprs phone for internet access during install so that I wont have to be connected via ethernet.
I'm not the greatest with linux in general, I mean I know my way around it okay but theres still a ton to learn, and 11.04 is the first version to work on my custom PC without messing up after I update it so I'm left with natty. Anyway I bought my PC with an Asus U8B-N13 Wireless adapter. The disc it came with has the program to install the drivers in Windows, Mac, and Linux, but the Linux drivers need to be compile and I'm yet to have luck doing so. I've tried to somewhat follow an older guide here: [URL].. but I made it as far as extracting the .tgz, then running the make command and got a couple errors. Here is that attempt:
Code: dom@NZXT:~$ cd Desktop dom@NZXT:~/Desktop$ tar -xvzf DPO_RT3070_LinuxSTA_V188.8.131.52_20100422.tgz DPO_RT3070_LinuxSTA_V184.108.40.206_20100422/ DPO_RT3070_LinuxSTA_V220.127.116.11_20100422/iwpriv_usage.txt DPO_RT3070_LinuxSTA_V18.104.22.168_20100422/LICENSE ralink-firmware.txt DPO_RT3070_LinuxSTA_V22.214.171.124_20100422/Makefile
How to set up an Asus USB N-13 wireless adapter (when i plug it NOTHING happens (the light on the device doesn't even blink)). I was trying to use this (click me), but i got confused mid way through. I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
I am still a noob with linux and debian in particular. I do some android development so through that I have learned a little bit about linux but only the basic command prompt commands and the basics of how linux works and such.Anyways, I was looking around on the forum and on other forums and I couldn't find any helpful information about how to set up wireless connections (such as wifi) on debian. When I installed debian on my computer it asked me for the ipw2200 files and I didn't have them at the time but now I have the latest framework files for that, I don't really know how to install them and after I install them I don't know how to turn on my wireless connections from there.
I am really sorry if someone already made a post on this subject and I am just too clutzy to find it, if that's the case please just post the link to that thread for me cause I'm dumb as crap.So basically the main problem I am trying to fix right now is that I cannot get my internet to work on my old dell inspiron 6000 laptop which I am trying to get to run debian.
I'm trying Ubuntu for the first time; it's actually the first time I've messed with Linux at all-- and, well, it's kind of intimidating. One of my hobbies is playing with dead computers, and long story short, I have Ubuntu installed to a partition on an external drive connected to an older Dell desktop with no internal storage to call its own. The only network adapter I have to spare right now is the rather wimpy USB one that came with said desktop. I have the CD with the drivers to it, but I think the Linux drivers on it are for a different distribution. Am I going to need to scrounge up another network card or adapter, or am I going to have to start sheepishly asking ridiculous questions regarding basic operation of the command console?
I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).
1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly. 2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page. 3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop. 4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb" 5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it. 6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed. 7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder. 9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present. 10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal
I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop. When I look at the Device Manager in Windows 7, it says I have an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. Right now, I am unable to connect to wifi with Linux. What drivers am I able to install, and how would I install them?
