Fedora Networking :: Atheros AR2413 FC10 - D-Link Wireless Adapter Worked Fine With Network Manager Disabled
Mar 3, 2009
I have been running FC8 on this IBM T23 with a D-Link wireless adapter. Using MadWifi this has worked fine with Network Manager disabled. But now I have nuked that installation and replaced it with FC10. Network Manager is nice, and I would like to use it. And it kind-of works. Network Manager recognizes my router and all my neighbor's routers, but I can't connect.
I'm in the process of switching back to Fedora after years of hiatus, but I can't get my wireless card working. The card itself is an Atheros AR2413, and the problem is that it seems to appear OK in various places, BUT it doesn't detect any networks. I'm on Fedora 14.
I have a Toshiba MX35 laptop it's a little old but does the job. I'm have a problem getting the wireless to work. I can boot a live CD either Ubuntu 10.10 or Fedora 14 and they will see the wireless card. The card is Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01).
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed and that is the OS that is having the problem seeing the wireless. The computer will not handle Ubuntu 10.10 (at least it won't handle the desktop effects under Ubuntu 10.10) but handles them just fine under 9.10 and that's why I have 9.10 installed. I really need the Wifi to work because I'm going to travel in a few days.
I recently switched from Windows XP to a clean install Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 but it seems to be quite a problem to get the wifi up and running. In Windows the nearby network all appeared in network connections but the same section in Ubuntu is empty. So I decided to go with the ndiswrapper guide to solve the problem with an unclaimed driver. After an entire day messing with my computer I'm still not close... Below follows excerpts taken from the Ndiswrapper guide with posted results from my computer. "ndiswrapper won't work until it thinks that your Windows drivers have been properly installed and that they are the appropriate ones for your wireless card. You can run the command: ndiswrapper -l"
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release. WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release. net5211 : driver installed device (168C:0013) present (alternate driver: ath5k)
So I've posted the result the name of my wireless card below: lspci -nn
00:00.0 Host bridge : VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:0259] 00:00.1 Host bridge : VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:1259]
It seems like the network is disabled or unclaimed or both. What to do? I'm stuck after spending an entire day trying to install the wifi. I had no problems in Windows XP but it seems to be quite impossible in Ubuntu.
i just installed Ubuntu 11.04 64bit on my desktop. i have a TP Link TL-WN321G (Ver 4.0) wireless usb adapter to connect to my wireless network (i used to use it with Windows XP).As expected (i'd read up a bit before installing Ubuntu), the adapter was autodetected - i could see my wireless network listed in the networks list dropdown, and lsusb showed it too.lsusb identifies "Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:2070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2070 Wireless Adapter"But i cannot connect to the network. When i select my network, it keeps trying to connect, but never succeeds in connecting.
i tried going through the forums for possible solutions, but most of them deal with how to get it working when the adapter is not detected, or when networks are not shown. Or they are for older Ubuntu versions.i use the same wireless network on my laptop (Ubuntu 9.04), and it has a WPA & WPA2 Personal security, with a password, which i've configured in the desktop as well.
I'm trying to get WiFi up and running on an older desktop PC. lspci gives me the following information about the WiFi card: 00:0d.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01) Is there an RPM package for the driver that I need? If no, what should I do to install the driver manually? The PC in question doesn't have any other form of direct internet access. It does have an Ethernet port, but the WiFi router is too far away to hook it up to the access point directly.
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?
I've installed ubuntu 10.04 on a hp mini 110. I've used netbook remix on this same computer and had no problems with a wireless connection. In this case, network manager shows wireless disabled. I have installed the Broadcom B43 Wireless drive from Adminstration->Hardware drivers. No help! ifconfig does not show eth1 and lspci tells me that the Broadcom BCM4312 Network controller is present.
I have "D-Link DWA-125 Wireless 150 USB Adapter". I can use this wireless adapter on my laptop, i can use it on my desktop as well but only when windows is running, im a newbie to fedora, today is my 2nd day and 3rd night, so pretty exited about it. i have installed fedora 13 on a different hard-disk on my desktop. when the computer is booting, there is an orange light on the adapter glowing, it turns off when the computer reaches the fedora loading screen. If i see fedora's Network Configuration window under the hardware's tab i see the "D-Link DWA-125 Wireless 150 USB Adapter" listed along with my lan card. Now if i go towards the clock on the top right to get the wireless connection working, it shows wireless network disconnected. I have tried creating wireless connection manually by inserting the SSID, macadress, BSSID, ,WPA passkey etc, but still doesnt works. when i try connecting using hidden wireless connection, i receive window for inserting keyring password again and again, stating that the login password does not match. but during all this time, i still havent seen the orange light glowing activity on the external usb adapter. If i restart the computer in windows the adapter/wireless connection works. also have checked the Network service, it seems that the service is up and running. i really require some assisstance on this,
i have noticed this, that if i go under network configuration. the first tab over there, inside devices i cant see my D-Link adapter, but if i switch onto the hardware tab it shows my lan card as well as my D-Link adapter. so does it means that the driver is missing? or any service which is disabled, however at this point of time i can get only using wired connection. please assist me. with this issue, im also downloading the 500 complete update as well for fedora, hoping that it may make it work.
After upgrading to 11.04 about six weeks ago I've had no sufficient solution to my inability to connect to wireless. Here is a summary of the problem:
After the upgrade, nm is running, and lspci detects my wireless controller (Atheros AR2413 802.11b/g), but nm can only sporadically detect/connect to wireless networks. Essentially what happens is that upon startup, I have to wait (sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes hours) for the computer to "decide" that it wants to detect the networks, at which point I can connect. After this it is fine; it doesn't disconnect after this point, but more often than not it takes so long to start working that I might as well not use the computer.
I've tried "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network", to no avail. I should mention that I also run under the Gnome Classic UI, because Unity is one of the worst UI changes I've ever seen in a version. I've read that Unity causes some problems with NM, but I have no corroborating evidence of this, and the problem persists even without using the Unity UI.
Someone recommended using an older kernel, but the file "menu.lst" doesn't even exist in the /boot/grub folder, so I have no idea how I would do that.
I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 (both 64-bit) and my USB WiFi adapter which previously worked fine stopped working. The adapter is a Hama USB stick based on the Ralink rt73 chipset. I've tried using the Ralink drivers that come with 10.04 (both rt2800usb and rt73usb) but neither work. When I use rt2800usb, the adapter is recognized as interface wlan0, however I can't see any wireless networks. When I use rt73usb (and blacklist rt2800usb to avoid conflicts) I no longer have a wlan0 interface and there is no wireless adapter shown in the network manager. I've pasted in the results of lsmod, lsusb, and ifconfig -a (with MAC addresses removed) below.
I've been using Windows all my life (and still have to use it at work) but I made the big leap yesterday and installed Ubuntu on my personal machine (at last). With my "Windows-centric" mind, there are a million things that I still don't get, but I must say the community and forums look quite impressive and easy to access (kudos! ). I am testing this today!My current problem is with the wireless adapter. I have a Belkin N Wireless USB adapter (FSD8053v3) and Belkin, of course, doesn't make linux drivers. When I installed Ubuntu, it recognized it automatically and I could connect to my network, but navigation was very slow so I tried to install Belkin windows drivers using ndiswrapper. It worked immediately, and navigation was very fast. However after a reboot, I lost the connection, I can't even see any of the neighbouring networks.
I have an older laptop on which I have installed Fedora Core 10 (22.214.171.124-117.fc10.i686). I am using a Retail Plus Mini Wireless USB Adapter. I have scanned this forum and someone mentioned that support for this adapter should come "out of the box" for FC10. I have a fair amount of experience with Linux command line configuration but am by no means an expert. I have absolutely no experience, however, with wireless.
NB that via iwconfig I get the output below which is giving information about my (currently for now unencrypted) SSID called "activity_logged". Pardon my ignorance but wouldn't this mean that I have wireless enabled and if so how does one access it through the command line? I would also eventually like to go back to encrypted status and access that via command line.
I have an HP mini laptop (Intel Atom, N270, 1.60GhZ, 1Gb RAM, Win XP ver 2002 SP3) that I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 netbook version last nite.I can dual boot, and so far everything under Ubuntu works great - except for the wireless interface. Rebooting back to WinXP, it works fine. The 'sudo lshw -C network' command shows "disabled". Ubuntu sees it, its just disabled. The help file says to make sure its on. It is - there is no physical switch..I am VERY new to this, with no programming experience to speak of.
I'm unable to disable the 'wireless disabled by hardware switch' message. I've tried rfkill unblock all - no effect. It remains hard blocked after running the unblock command, rebooting, alternating the switch in windows, alternating the bios setting. Wireless internet does not work because of this.
I can't post messages, I think something is wring with my internet.Anyway, I'm gonna copy paste what I've been trying to say...I just bought the TP-LINK Model No. TL-WN821N. It's an atheros. And I was wondering where can I find the drivers for Linux. It only includes drivers for Windows.
I don't have much experience with networks,I found this website,
I got stuck in the patch section, I don't know what they are trying to say. They are using
I just got Ubuntu and am new at this stuff. I have a dual boot windows 7 64 bit one and ubuntu 10.4. I booted ubuntu at startup and then tried to go online, but it says my wireless device is disabled. I tried pressing the keys on my keyboard to see if that may work, but it doesn't. I am lost and new at this.
I had installed Fedora 12. I am using 4 LAN Cards. All these cards were configured using network manager, but i am not able to acivate /deactivate these cards using acivate /deactivate buttons since they got disabled. I could activate the cards by running /etc/init.d/restart network. Anyone knows why the acivate /deactivate buttons in network manager are disabled .
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've a damn TP-LINK WG422G UBS Adapter that i love i installed latest compat-wireless driver package and used latest ar9271 firmware after that it was worked properly. There is no problem when surfing the net, the problem is occurring usually download something via torrent sometimes form websites. I'm starting to download and then usb adapter suddenly freeze. If i remove and plug in the usb adapter it is working again.
Have tried methods from every thread I could find for past 10 hrs. Have tried installing rt3070sta etc.Monitored message log; appears that the driver isn't recognized, though the USB port sees that something is plugged in (when I plug in the adapter, and unplug it).All of the threads miss something; I can't get a wireless port listed under ifconfig no matter what I try. Seems that every method leaves out something (I guess because everyone's box is different in some way). Network manager doesn't help much. Downloaded Wicd, which does even less.I guess I could try ndiswrapper, but I'm scared away by the hundreds of pages I see on going that route; I'm almost certain it wouldn't work (1000 possible points of failure).Does anyone have a strategy to recommend?AM64 box, newly installed Edubuntu 10.04, ran update manager.
I am using fc14 i686, and I am having a problem with my wireless card. Even though the led of the wireless card lights up the network manager claims that the wireless is disabled. I don't understand what is going wrong.I am a newbie trying to be sth better bur for the time being my only help could be the outputs of the lshw, lspci and lsusb commands.
I have just installed FC12 on my machine - and gone Windows free for the first time ever. Now I do use various flavours of Linux on a daily basis but not from an installation/sys admin point of view so my questions here may seem a little basic but pleas eindulge me if you will!
Now, my network connection works perfectly well under the following scenarios.
