Fedora Networking :: Bluetooth And WiFi Do Not Work At Once?
Sep 4, 2011
Suddenly after a long time with fedora (now with fedora 15), bluetooth and wifi not working on my laptop (now I'm connected to cable), I checked the network in console doing this:#systemctl status network.serviceAnd response:network.service - LSB: Bring up/down networkingLoaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/network)Active: failed since Sat, 03 Sep 2011 21:18:24 +0200; 1min 50s agoProcess: 2949 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)CGroup: name=systemd:/system/network.serviceInstead I do the same query with the bluetooth service and gives me all OK, but does not work, I do not
I have a liveusb running Fedora 11 on my hp laptop. I would like to use my T-Mobile Dash 3G unlimited data connection. I have seen many posts regarding wvdial, modem scripts, etc that are going a little over my head. I was able to connect my phone to the laptop, but when I tried to initiate internet sharing on the phone via Bluetooth PAN, nothing happened on the computer. I was connected but not able to do anything.
I saw some developer in a blog mention that he had put Bluetooth PAN support in Fedora 12. Is this not available in F11? Should I try moving to a F12 liveusb for this?
Has anybody had success getting a Tmobile 3G to work with F11?
I would rather use the USB connection so I could charge simulteously, but this looks a lot tricker.
- When I connect myself to a wireless network I must give the dhclient command, to obtain a local ip address - The system say me that haven't a bluetooth adapter, and so I can't use bluetooh services (I've try by graphical interface and by console)
These problems began when I've passed to ubuntu 10.04! My Wireless card is: Intel Corporation Wireless WiFi Link 5100
I have some serious trouble getting the Wireless connection working, using Fedora 13 on a Dell XPS M1710 laptop which has an Intel Pro Wireless 3945 ABG adapter. I have previously tried an earlier version of Fedora I think it was version 10, where it worked flawlessly out of the box, but all versions since then, simply wont work properly. I got the Fedora 12 64 bit working at some stage, after using hours and hours trying to get it working, and suddenly it did. Don't know what suddenly made it work, since I haven't made any new changes, just re-checked the old ones. But I needed to use Skype which is only in 32 bit, so I had to reinstall to a 32 bit version, and then couldn't get it working again.
I can get it to work with any Windows version, no problems. I have also tried with PCBSD version 7.x, 8.0 and today I tried the new 8.1 just to see if that worked to, an no problemos, it works perfectly out of the box, I could set it up in 5 minutes, even though I don't have any previous knowledge of PCBSD, other than a few short trial installs.
It has to be said that I am a newbee to any Unix/Linux, so I don't know how to troubleshoot properly, and have only tried a few things which I have picked up from other forums. But unfortunately nothing seems to work. The first thing I did after a clean install was I looked in the Fedora 13 documentation, that says I should check that the NetworkManager is controling the interface, I tried to start up NetworkManager but nothing happens, no reaction what so ever. I tried rebooting and then restarting NetworkManager, but no matter what I try, I won't work, not even if I am using the root account.
I noticed right after the install, that there was a choice of connecting to a hidden network in the lower right corner of the screen, but while I have been trying to get the NetworkManager to work, it has suddenly disappeared (I have disabled SSID broadcast on my Linksys router. I've tried to run lsmod and it seems like the right firmware is running, I think it was called IWL3945 or something like that. I think there were around 3 such modules running, plus a Dell module.
Another important note, before I even touched the the WIFI, I connected to the Internet via my normal fixed LAN connection, and installed all the updates that were available and rebooted the system. I am using an LinkSys WAG354G V2 ADSL router, where I have disabled SSID broadcast. Is there a kind soul out there, who has a good idea of what the problem is, or a good idea of how to troubleshoot it ? since a laptop without a WIFI connection is not of much use to me.
I just installed Fedora 15 yesterday and can't get wi-fi to work. When I click 'on' on the Wireless label, it goes back to 'off' immediately. When I open the Network Settings menu and disable Airplane mode, the Wireless connection goes on and then off immediately. I took a look at /var/log/messages and it shows this:
The auto connect feature of NetworkManager Applet (version 0.7.997) isn't working on my system. If the WiFi connection dies, Network Manager doesn't detect that the connection has been lost and try to reestablish the connection. I have to manually click on the WiFi hotspot to reestablish the connection. This appears to be the case both while the computer is running and when I first boot it up (i.e. when booting, if the first attempt at establishing a WiFi connection doesn't succeed, Network Manager doesn't retry or try another hotspot).Is this "normal" behavior for Network Manager? If not, does anyone know a fix? Here's some more info about my system:
my long awaited WUA-1340 D-Link wifi adapter has arrived, and...unfortunately won't work it didn't work "out of the box", so I tried the following (found on the aircrack website)Here's what I did....1. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add blacklist rt73usb as a new line.2. RebootThen,
Code: wget http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2 tar -xjf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2
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 have had my bluetooth keyboard and mouse working fine for a little while now, then one day.. seemingly out of the blue (no pun intended) it stopped. heres what i deduced:
Mouse works fine, always keyboard doesnt.
I'm using a logitech dinovo edge
and i can manually force the keyboard to connect by putting the keyboard into discoverable mode (press the button on the back of it) and using hidd:
Code: hidd --connect XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX but who the heck wants to do that on every reboot or resume from sleep! yikes.. firstly, i noticed that bluetoothd was segfaulting alot: Code: ec 22 17:26:09 hostname kernel: [21329.811149] usb 2-6.2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 6
So I can't get the bluetooth tethering to work still! I have been trying for about 2 weeks. The phone pairs, in blueman I set the phone as a trusted device and click network access point. It then flashes up on the iPhone tethered with the blue banner. Blueman says it is connected. But no net access. Network connections shows no new connections either. Weird, I thought it would appear in there. Is there anything I can do to force it to add the bluetooth link as a network connection?
I've just loaded up Fedora 13 and I like the new feature Fedora have which allows you to use your mobile as a internet modem over bluetooth. Is it possible to update my Network Manager in ubuntu 10.04 to this new version 0.8.997 through the package manager? Is there a PPA or something I could use?
Would just updating this add the bluetooth ability or would I have to update gnome-bluetooth package as well? Is it doable at all or should I just wait till the next Ubuntu comes out?
I'm running Fedora12 on PS3 and try to use bluetooth keyboard of Apple Wireless Keyboard. bluetooth-properties command works fine and Apple Wireless Keyboard is found and paired correctly then registered. But I can not input any character when I type keyboard. It works file on other Fedora12 on x86 desktop PC. Do I need extra setup for PS3?
When i connect to my laptop a bluetooth usb stick, the bluetooth could not be turned on. the bluetooth dameon is on, and when i press the turn on button, nothing happens. in windows the stick works fine.
The bluetooth manager does not detect a bluetooth dongle .trying to use ndiswrapper to fix.I installed device manager and the results are shown below.i downloaded the windows driver suite. It has 4 .exe self extracting driver archives and a setupconfig.ini. The .ini file is below.I was able to extract one of the 32bit archives on a windows machine and it had about 8 .inf files that are titled weird and would not install properly using ndiswrapper probably because im using the 64-bit architecture. there are 2 64bit .exe's in the driver download, but how can i extract them in ubuntu and do i really need to install all 8 .inf files. also do i actually need to make a .inf file? if so how?

I have an Asrock A330GC, with onboard ethernet, and an Engenius PCI card for wifi.I installed ubuntu server 9.10 no problems, and it picked up my ethernet in the installation with no difficulties.I couldn't get 9.10 to do what i wanted, so I tried installing 8.4 instead. This however didn't pick up any of the drivers, so i couldn't get online.So i reinstalled 9.10, only to find that no couldn't find network in the installation.Absolutely NOTHING has changed, the ethernet cable still plugged in, and if i plug same cable into my laptop, it works fine.Any ideas people?ifconfig doesn't mention any eth0, just lo, with an ip of 127.0.0.1 and amask of 255.0.0.0 which i'm fairly certain means its dead
I have been trying to get 9.10 to work with my D Link DWA 125 USB WiFi antenna for days now. I have searched these forums as well as other forums for answers. I have tried all of the suggestions I have come across, some simple, some complex. Nothing works. I have tried ndiswrapper, blacklisting drivers, re-installing, modifying the 2870sta.dat file......nothing works (or maybe I'm doing it wrong...I don't know).
I have a fresh install of 9.10 .Can someone please walk me through this and show me what I'm doing wrong?
I have been trying to install the driver for my Intel 5100 wireless card. I got the "correct" driver from the Intel site for Linux, but cannot figure out how to install it even after reading READ ME. So I tried ndiswrapper and couldn't figure that out either. I can't find the files it is talking about.
I've bought this Blumax USB WLAN adapter 9009 (ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501/RT2573 Wireless Adapter). I was specifically happy to read in its specs that it supports Linux [URL].
However, it turned out that the co-packaged CD drive doesn't contain anything Linux-related, and the support page online has gzip package with many files I don't know what to do with [URL]. The online support swallowed my query and hasn't returned any answer.
So, now I am wondering what to do. I don't feel so competent as to be able to compile the drivers on my own, specifying several specific parameters. At least it doesn't compile with default params. how to move forward with this. Apart from returning the device, because I'm too far now from the place where I bought this.
I'm looking for a cheap and stable wifi card that will work with Ubuntu 11.04. My Linksys WMP300N is creating a conflict with the native Broadcom driver (causing the system to freeze after light network traffic) and ndiswrappper isn't working for 64 bit Ubuntu.
Does anyone own a relatively cheap (less than $40USD) PCI card that works flawlessly, or close to flawlessly with 64bit Ubuntu 11.04? I need to get off of this 35ft ethernet cord. Cat5 + crossing top of stairs = problem in the future.
When the audio output of my laptop (running ubuntu 10.04 LTS) is configured to play via bluetooth to my bluetooth receiver (like a headset, a Belken H15 A2DP audio stream), my wifi connection is severely degraded (..... keeps pausing to buffer data).Then when I switch the audio output from the bluetooth device to the soundcard (without disconnecting the bluetooth device), you can see ..... suddenly start buffering and working fine again until I switch back to the bluetooth receiver.Other bluetooth devices (like my Droid) connect to the receiver just fine, but not this laptop.
