Fedora Hardware :: Linksys AE1000 Network Adapter Not Supported
Jan 3, 2011
The linksys AE1000 is not supported by linux according to the linksys website. Are there any workarounds? I use this network adapter to connect to my wireless network, and it is basically useless at the moment.
I have a AE1000 wireless adapter and Ive been using it or about 4 months on windows xp. Yesterday I installed ubuntu 10.10 and it won't work It won't connect to the internet and won't even show signs that it is turned on.
Ok so I tried to follow the directions here: [URL] However, I couldn't find 2010_0915_RT3572_Linux_STA_v188.8.131.52.tar.bz2. Instead, the closest I could find was 2011_0407_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2 .5.0.2_DPO.bz2, so I tried it. I edited config.mk and rtusb_dev_id.c as chili555 advised. I tried to edit linux_rt.h, however, the only file I saw was rt_linux.h. I edited it according to chili555's post, message #7. I went back to the root directory of the extracted .bz2 file and did
Here is the situation: I am currently running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit. I'm trying to get my Linksys AE1000 to run correctly. I have followed many tutorials but most notably was:[URL].. lsmod shows that rt3572sta is loaded. network manager in gnome is able to find my router. my problem occurs when it tries to connect to the router using wpa2 security. It continually asks for the wireless password then will freeze the system after a number of attempts. After digging in for a bit, I was able to dig out a dmesg trapping the error:
BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffcfb0138af1ec IP: [<ffffffffa021c7e8>] Cntl0idRTBssidProc+0x78/0x570 [rt3572sta] PGD 0 Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP last sysfs file: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu7/cache/index2/shared_cpu_map CPU 2
I really don't see the need to continue on with those error messages lsmod still shows rt3572sta after the failure. In case anyone wants to see the changes I have made to the files before the make, I have included them. but changed the extension to "txt" to accommodate the up-loader and my rt_linux is too big to fit here, just not that it was 2 lines that were changed to work with the kernel. If anyone wants to know what I mean by the system freezes, I do mean just that. The mouse will continue to work, but I am then unable to open any programs, unable to reboot the computer. it requires a hard reset.
I have uninstalled the drivers, installed them, make them, make install them, make clean, start from scratch a few times, and am getting no give here.
I recently purchased the Linksys AE1000 wireless USB network adapter. After some struggles, I found and installed the Ralink_RT3572USB_drv2400 driver for it and it now works, however it won't turn on when I boot up the computer. I have to manually unplug and then plug the adapter back in for it to work again. I followed the instructions on this how to for installing the driver.
I have installed Suse 11.4 from the Gnome liveCD, and I "can" access my home network when it is unsecured, however, I can't access it when WEP is turned on. Now, I know that WEP is insecure but there are devices on the network that only supports WEP so the router settings can't be changed. Also just for testing purposes i have tried the WPA2 encryption method to no avail (dmesg reports that the connection timed out). The only encryption method that looks promising is the open-wep encryption. When trying to connect to the network (with open-wep turned on) I have performed a bit of checking to see what is going on, now I don't know much about in-depth linux and stuff but, below are the outputs from lsusb, dmesg, iwconfig, and ifconfig.

Can anyone suggest a wireless-N adapter (USB or PCI) that is well supported under F13? And do you think an upgrade from G to N is worth it? I'm probably going to upgrade my router to N in any case as the old one is buggy and/or dying.
How well is the Linksys WMP300N PCI card supported in Squeeze? I have read that the US versions have Broadcom chipsets and others use Atheros chipsets. Mine is US as far as I can tell. The FCC ID is Q87-WMP300N. It is a PCI card. That's all I can tell you since the board has a metal cover over all the chips.
Previously I had my desktop hooked up to a nearby router via an ethernet cord with my parents' computer having a wireless usb adapter to connect (This thing: [uRL]). We just moved and our setup has reversed (router is near their computer, I am using the usb adapter). I just installed the latest Ubuntu and now I can't get the usb adapter to work. I'm very new to Linux and I have no idea what to do. I think this is the same usb adapter.
I actually wasn't even trying to install the adapter which is the funny thing, I just finally got around to installing mandriva 2010 on my desktop and happened to have the adapter already hooked up to a usb port for my windows installation. When I got done with the installation to my amazement it got recognized and I didn't have to do a thing!
I looked into installing the adapter on my laptop which already had mandriva 2010 on it and gave up cause I didn't find any post's here that addressed the issue very well. Just thought I would pass it along for anyone who want's to try this on there computer.
I am completely new to Linux and have just installed Xubuntu on an old HP machine. Until I buy a long enough ethernet cord to reach my router upstairs, I would like to try to make use of a Linksys wireless USB network adapter that I have (WUSB11 ver. 2.. I looked around online and I got pretty confused. I don't know where to start.
I recently tried to install Crunchbang on my IBM Thinkpad T20 laptop. Everything went OK as far as I can tell (I still have to adjust acpi and display settings), but I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet via wireless (wired connection works fine). I've done a good deal of searching online, and I realize that my wireless adapter (wpc54gs, bcm4318 chipset) is problematic in linux, and that b43-fwcutter is typically required. I did install b43-fwcutter, and it seemed to install OK, but nothing subsequently happened when I opened networkmanager. I'm not sure at this point if my problem is that I don't know how to configure any wireless adapter in crunchbang, or if it is that my particular adapter is not being recognized.
I'm not a new user to ubuntu but I'm stuck with a driver issue on a wireless adapter upgrade for ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx. I'm running an acer aspire am1201-e1622a with amd athlon x2 64 bit processor, however i'm only running the 32 bit version of lucid lynx. The following are a few outputs of some commands that might assist in finding the proper driver. Before though i will tell you what i have done.
I have installed a few different drivers from windows wireless driver installer such as the xp and vista 32 and 64 bit versions with no success in the computer actually recognizing that i have a wireless adapter installed. The windows wireless driver installer said that hardware was present but i was unable to scan for networks or even see that i had a choice to do that. This meaning that it didn't show i had wireless capabilities in my network manager. i tested this with gnome network manager which is the default manager for 10.04 and also with wicd with no success.
Following these tests i attempted to install a driver from source following the instructions on another forum. This allowed me to manually turn on the wireless adapter but i was still unable to find any networks. This meaning that wicd was able to see that i had a wireless adapter installed but it for some reason was unable to see any wireless networks around. I'm 100% sure my router is in range and that it is configured correctly. I have 5 other computers connect to this router along with some of them being ubuntu.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. It is an older laptop with a Radeon Xpress 200m video card, which apparently is unsupported by the newest version of the proprietary ATI drivers. Right now I am using the default graphics adapter that was installed, however, all of my games run abysmally. There isn't one game I have played (World of Goo, Gish, Eschalon Book I) that has played decently. They all suffer from screen flicker and tremendous slowdowns. Is there any option for me since the 200m is no longer supported by ATI?
I'm having trouble getting my wifi devices to work on my 128bit WEP network. I have a new Thinkpad T400, with an internal Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN. I also have some cardbus cards: a Lucent ORiNOCO Gold, a Linksys Wireless-G, and a TRENDnet TEW-421PC. I have them set up as interfaces eth2, eth1, and eth3. (The TRENDnet isn't recognised as a network card at all, so no interface for it.) I have installed the latest firmware for the Linksys card.
The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files are virtually identical for all of them, differing only in the HWADDR and DEVICE lines. So here's the behaviour:
1. The Lucent card comes up just fine. 2. The internal 5100AGN and the Linksys cards won't come up, and watching with iwconfig shows that they're either associated with my AP OR they've got an encryption key set -- but not both. 3. When trying to bring up the 5100AGN, I get the following messages:
iwlagn: index 0 not used in uCode key table iwlagn: index 3 not used in uCode key table
/var/log/messages shows DHCPDISCOVER requests being sent, but they're bound to fail since the association with the AP with WEP isn't being completed. And yes, the ifcfg-* files really *are* identical except for the DEVICE and HWADDR lines. The /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file correctly maps the interfaces to the MAC addresses. So why does my antique ORiNOCO card work and thew newer ones fail? How can I track down what's being done wrong/not being done?
I can get a dual band cisco ae1000 to work with fedora 15, but the same steps taken on opensuse don't work. Has anyone managed to get this card working on opensuse 11.4 x64? If so, I've tried compiling a driver and using the repo for an rt3572sta. neither worked. The way i hacked the program (following a fedora forum) worked in fedora but not opensuse. I've tried blacklisting cards and making sure the module loads on boot.
The Fedora 13 Visualization guide mentions the ability to use "shared physical device" to give virtual guest full access to a network device. Where can I find more info on setting this up. When installing my first guest, the drop down menu didn't supply this as an option. Eth0 and Eth1 were not selectable (e.g. grayed out).Is there a better section to ask KVM related question? If so, I'll move there.
I'm setting up my first KVM guest now, played aroudn with VMware briefly. I did spend a lot of time wtih VM on mainframes (yes, I'm old)... and from my research, KVM is "catching up" with what we could do in the old days.
I'm having some trouble connecting to the wireless network here at home. The PC has a Linksys WMP600N wireless network card, which works fine under several versions of Windows. In Opensuse however, I cannot get it to find the network. Even though my laptop is right next to it, which has perfect connection to the network. The router is a Linksys WRT610N.
I've tried running iwconfig and iwlist scan in the terminal, but the scan returns no results and iwconfig indicates it does not have a connection to a network. I've turned off IPv6 as I read this can sometimes cause issues. I've also tried issuing the computer a static IP address, figuring the DHCP might be causing problems, but all to no avail.
I'm trying to install a Linksys WUSB600n dual-band USB wireless-N adapter onto a desktop system with opensuse 11.1 installed; this system will be migrating to a back porch with no cabling access, hence the wireless solution. Everything works fine under Windows XP, but on Linux, not so much. Hardware info is as follows; there is no "Wireless LAN" entry, but there is a USB entry:
I am doing network config of my laptop. I'm new to Fedora, so I'm not sure how it goes ... I have an Ethernet device (eth0) and a wireless device, wlan0 Status in system->administration->network: Tab devices: eth0 : active wlan0: inactive Tab Hardware: eth0: system wlan0: configured (description: b43)
Double clicking on the wlan0 line gets you to Network Adapters Configuration, where adapter b43 grayed out) is associated with device wlan0. So far, so good (I did all the fwcutter stuff, so I assume this is the result). When I installed the system (from installcd, then update, then install broadcom-wl, ...) I configured it to be started up with network manager, automatically on startup. I managed to get it working exactly once in that session.
Problem is, it doesn't start up and the wireless is not even visible when you click the network manager icon. For that matter, eth0 does not start automatically either, but at least there is a button to start it in network manager. Coming back to the tab devices, clicking on wlan0 allows you to click on the activate button ... but there it says: Cannot activate network device wlan0! b43 device wlan0 does not seem to be present.
Just upgraded from F13 32bit to F14 64bit. The Realtek ethernet controller on my motherboard is now totally disabled. The module r8169 is loaded, but the light on the port is not lit. When I insert the cable the light quickly goes on, then off again.
Needless to say that ping to LAN says destination unreachable.
