I have an HP Pavilion notebook with a Broadcom WLANcard that had been working very nicely in Fedora Core 10 until this evening, when I took my notebook to a conference room where there was no internet access. (I tried to connect to wireless networks, but there were none in the area, as I discovered.) am now unable to connect to my local (home) wireless network as the device is now non-existent . Can someone please walk me through the steps to fix this or re-install it (I have tried reinstalling broadcom-wl, but that didn't help). My lspci listing is reproduced below:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
I have a Dell XPS M1330. I installed Fedora 10 on a separate partition and left Vista on the first. It was working just fine and for some reason all of the sudden it is not recognizing the Wireless controller. Vista is still working fine although I did get a couple of "WLAN controller has stopped working" errors. I suspect I may have a physical problem with the controller but I'm confused as to why Vista is still using it but Linux is not. The actual physicall "WIFI" light on the laptop does not even illuminate when I boot Linux. No wireless networks appear in the network list under Linux. Particularly since it WAS working fine for months...
my eth0 suddenly stopped working on FC10. i have been using it the whole time, and now it refuses to even ping the gateway. dhclient is not receiving a dhcp offer and when i put in the information manually, it is not even able to ping the gateway. netstat -rn shows that the destination of the router is going nowhere.
i do not think it is the hardware/software, but rather maybe the provider? i am from central europe but just moved up to great britain and working at a friends place. i can connect the mac powerbook without a problem (it will get an ip with dhcp), but not the linux machine.it is a normal ethernet modem connection here. can it be, that it checks MAC addresses or even the computer names? the powerbook also has a really weired IP address: 77.102.xxxxx
i am not using network manager, but command line tools and have nm uninstalled. does anyone have a clue, what this could be about? i am not a newbie, but this is really puzzling me.....
A few days ago (september 7) my wireless suddenly stopped working. I am using FC11, and have an Atheros AR5211 wireless card and have been using the ath5k driver with GNOME NetworkManager. Wireless networks are detected by NM perfectly fine. When I try to connect, the icon spins around those two dots, and one of them becomes green. If the network is wep protected, it asks for the password. After a while, it times out, regardless of the protection. I don't remember changing pretty much for the last two months, so I'm sort of surprised. I did download and install a kernal, along with an selinux-policy update.
If I run dmesg, relevant looking lines included:
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready and a long series of these at the end: wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:0b:86:4f:8a:20 try 1 wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:0b:86:4f:8a:20 try 1
Note: I previously posted this in "Laptops," but Networking seemed like a better place to do it.
I have a Thinkpad T400 notebook that dual boots windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04. My wireless has worked both in windows and ubuntu for the past several months. However 2 days ago, the wireless in ubuntu stopped working. I think this may be a result of trying to set up a static eth0 connection between my laptop and an embedded board, but I dont see how messing with eth0 would stop the wlan from working.
Symptoms: When I left click on the network connections icon in the tray, all it lists under "Wireless networks" is "device not ready". Needless to say, there are no networks available to connect to. Also the wireless is working fine under windows.
When originally installing 11.04 I had problems getting my Ralink 5390 wireless card to work.
Today my computer froze completely and I had to turn it off via the power switch. When I turned it back on, wireless was no longer recognized! My iPod can connect to the network just fine, so it must be an Ubuntu problem. There are no problems with my ethernet connection either.
I researched this and found several threads about blocking and unblocking wireless devices using the rfkill command. Well, unfortunately for me the rfkill command doesn't work. When I type sudo rfkill list or sudo rfkill unblock all, nothing happens; it just returns me to my bash prompt. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling rfkill...nothing.
I've started to set up a server at my house, where I eventually want to run it headless, and I can just VNC in from my other Desktop. I installed Ubuntu 10.10, setup remote desktop on the server, and from there was able to do any work remotely. That was nice. I turn the computer off at night, and the next day when I was going to work on it, I cannot VNC in anymore. One day passed, and now every time I try to use VNC it comes up with "Failed to connect to server" I also set a static IP address on the server too, so I know the address isn't changing every so often.
I patched my wireless driver in order to support packet injection. Using this tutorial:
- Install the Firmware:
- Create new directory:
- Now disconnect Internet and unload all your driver (use rmmod command)
- Move/copy the Compat-Wireless patched in /usr/src/drivers directory and unpack the drivers:
Blacklist the wl driver: (STA driver)
Currently I'm running Ubuntu 10.10, Kernel 2.5.35-29-generic. I have a Broadcom 4318 for my WLAN and a Broadcom 4401-B0 for my ethernet. I followed the tutorial and I managed to get packet injection working on my WLAN; however, my ethernet connection isn't working. I tried sudo modeprobe b44, but I get the following message:
Version: Ubuntu 10.04 Relavant hardware: P5QL Pro built-in ethernet, cable modem with linksys wireless-G router (although problem is with ethernet connection, not wireless)
One minute my ethernet was working, and the next it stopped working. The only thing that I did between it working and not working was install electricsheep from Synaptic and then I shut down the computer. When I restarted a bit later, no ethernet connection shows up.
I checked the cables, made sure they are in tight.
My laptop connects using the same ethernet cable fine. So its not the cable or the router.
I reset the router and the computer at the same time. Still doesn't work.
I don't know where to even start with troubleshooting this sort of problem. Everything to the extent of my computer knowledge seems to be working fine.
I'm running a gateway lapbook w/10.04 LTS and an etheros wirless card. Card has been working fine for almost a year - from cold boot, warm boot, and recovery from standy (shut lid, open, press power button). I was fiddling with setting a static IP for the wirelss card by modifying the interfaces text file. I made some changes, and restored the file to its original contents after some noodling around. Wireless still worked fine after that. Last night I took the laptop out of suspend as usual - lifted lid, pressed power button - but the wireless indicator remained grayed out and I haven't been able to reenable wireless connectivity since. ifconfig shows the wireless card is there, and cabling the e-net port directly to my hub works fine.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 on a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 using an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. My laptop's ability to connect to a wireless network stopped last night, and I'm not sure why. It's definitely something on my end, as my roommate can connect to the internet on a Windows box. I can wire in without a problem, but that's a pain and my Ethernet cable got lost in the shuffle when I moved back to school. I've been able to get into this network before and nothing about it has changed. I've been able to hibernate and restart and such and nothing has ever needed to be reset.
The router's a D-Link WBR-2310. Wicd and Network Manager see the network (I'm back to using wicd) , but wicd appears to get stuck at "Obtaining IP address..." and says "Unable to connect: Cannot obtain IP address". I know my password is correct (I set up the router and I'm the CS undergrad in the apartment so I manage it), lspci sees the wireless card, ifconfig and iwconfig return information about the interface, dmesg|grep wlan0 doesn't seem to have anything terribly out of the ordinary, but here's that output:
Code: allyanncah@taliesin:~% dmesg | grep wlan0 [ 23.514202] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready [ 36.609016] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready [ 38.756143] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:24:01:cb:4e:7e (try 1) [ 38.758791] wlan0: direct probe responded [ 38.758796] wlan0: authenticate with AP 00:24:01:cb:4e:7e (try 1) [ 38.760587] wlan0: authenticated [ 38.760609] wlan0: associate with AP 00:24:01:cb:4e:7e (try 1) [ 38.763318] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 00:24:01:cb:4e:7e (capab=0x431 status=0 aid=1) [ 38.763322] wlan0: associated [ 38.765502] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready .....
I've tried: - reinstalling wicd - uninstalling wicd and installing network-manager - restarting - shutting down and booting back up - restarting the router - sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart - taking the interface down and back up with ifconfig
I haven't changed anything recently in regards to my wireless card, and all the fixes I've tried are things I've done before without an issue. The only thing I'm wondering about is if doing a hard reset might have broken something (I know this is a cardinal sin, but there's a whole 'nother problem I haven't been able to fix with the OS hanging every once in a while over a VPN daemon when it tries to shut down or restart -- I've left it for hours to see if it actually gets anywhere and no luck, won't do a soft reset). I'm nervous about reinstalling the driver just because I've never had to do it and drivers are a finicky business. I imagine there's a config error somewhere?
I installed Ubuntu 10.4 side by side with my Vista. This is on a PC I leave on permanently and use as a sort of Sever, so Security and Network connection are VERY important on this device. I use it for documents and IP PBX (telephone system). I currently use Vista and 3CX, but I plan to roll it over to Unbuntu full time once its up and runnng correctly - I will just need to change the Grub2 conf priority. After install, all was fine and I managed to make many changes to settings, apps and updates, but I have noticed in the past week when going in to make further changes the network has suddenly stopped working! According to Network Manager and the icon on the panel it is connected and I can not see anything obvious that is not correct. I tried doing a PING (192.168.1.1) from Network Manager to the main router, but it failed. I know that there is nothing wrong with the network nor the card or PC it all sits on. It's working now with Vista and my other machines. It must be a config some-where.
Finally got around to dual-booting and all was going well. I was surprised to see that the webcam on my Vaio worked straight away. However, some time between one boot and another the webcam mysteriously stopped working..
Here is the last time it worked:
Jun 6 23:12:51 dillinga kernel: uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (05ca:1837) Jun 6 23:12:51 dillinga kernel: input: UVC Camera (05ca:1837) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.7/usb1/1-2/1-2:1.0/input/input12
Then the next boot:
Jun 6 23:41:48 dillinga kernel: uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (05ca:1837) Jun 6 23:41:48 dillinga kernel: uvcvideo: UVC non compliance - GET_DEF(PROBE) not supported. Enabling workaround. Jun 6 23:41:48 dillinga kernel: uvcvideo: Failed to query (129) UVC probe control : -32 (exp. 26).
So I decided to boot into windows and make sure all was OK - and it was. Then I came back into Fedora and suddenly the camera was working again! I thought I'd reboot just to see if anything changed and alas here I am again with no webcam and the same error.
I have an HP a670y desktop computer using the included wireless antenna (looks like a big Sorry game piece). I am running Ubuntu 10.04 x64 dual booted with Windows Vista x64. I haven't had internet for a while but just got it today and decided to do some updating in both Windows and Ubuntu. It had detected my router and I copied and pasted the WEP key then it asked for my password, but my keyboard wasn't connected so I clicked cancel for the password window and it connected anyway.
I opened the Synaptic package manager and started downloading some updates while I did some browsing on the internet. I had restarted my computer when the updates were done and it asked again for my WEP key. I copied and pasted just as I did before and entered my password and after it tried to connect it asked for my password again. I thought maybe the internet was down so I decided to boot up Windows and it connected right away. I wonder if one of my updates messed something up. Has anyone else had this happen?
Right so yesterday my internet worked fine. Today - no connection at all. The light for my cable on the router doesn't even show up. I originally had indicator-network installed, so when the internet first stopped working, I tried a few other options such as tethering to my phone via usb and bluetooth (which I have successfully used in the past). However, these didn't work, and I figured that as connman is still in beta, maybe that was why. So I reinstalled network-manager and network-manager-gnome via a usb stick, uninstalled indicator-network, and rebooted the computer. Still no internet.
When I click on the applet, it says "No network devices are available". This is odd, as I definitely have a network device... it is part of the motherboard. So I thought I'd do the SMARTlan test or whatever it's called. It's part of my BIOS, so I ran that and it returned results that I (kinda) expected: when the cable wasn't plugged in, it returned one set of results. When it was only plugged into my computer (and not the router), it returned another set of results. And when it was plugged into both my computer and the router, it returned a third set of results. So that leads me to believe the cable itself is fine.
And when I move the cable to a different port on the router, nothing changes. The corresponding light still doesn't come on. Network-manager, telling there are no network devices. The BIOS can see the ethernet port and the cable. And the router is functioning perfectly for my parents' computer and my ps3. And I have checked the cable to my computer for physical damage - it follows the same path as the one to my ps3, and on top of that, nothing physical can possibly have happened to it in the last day. This happened once before, except I don't think the network devices were lost.
my Internet connection stopped working suddenly after updating the packages using synaptec package manager and rebooting it..can anyone say me why did this happen.BTW,mine is ubuntu 10.10 and i am absolute new to linux.I had to configure my n/w connections right from the scrap again
I have a HP Mini 5105 SSD netbook, runing Ubuntu 10.10 with 2Gb RAM. My wireless card is a Broadcom BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n. Its driver is enabled and running. The wired network connection runs fine too. The problem: Wireless stopped working. When I right click on the network icon, the enable network option is clicked, but the "enable wireless" option is listed in dark grey and cannot be clicked on. I have recently updated my kernel version to 2.6.35-24-generic. What I have already tried: this one too I got to know there seems to be a problem with the 2.6.35-24-generic kernel. I have gone into the GRUB menu (it took some time to find out that you have to keep the Shift key pressed during startup for the GRUB menu to show), chosen the older kernel version (2.6.35-23-generic) and then removed the faulty one. Nevertheless, nothing has changed. I still cannot enable the wireless. The outcome to lshw -C network is:
I've been running Ubuntu 10.10 on this ThinkPad for a couple of months now, with absolutely no problems at all.The wireless was working fine earlier today out at a coffee shop. When I got home and turned the computer on, the network applet just showed a "Wireless is disabled" message.I poked around for a while, mucking with whatever I could (limited, unfortunately, I don't have great linux-fu) and doing the ritual reboot to see if that would get things going.I then spent some time reading through forum threads here, but didn't find any answers.Below are the results of the various commands as described in HOWTO post a Wireless issue (ticket) sticky threadMachine brand and model
after having tried out almost all suggestions found here and elsewhere on the internet, i'm somewhat at my wits end The situation: I'm running Kubuntu 32Bit Version (at the mom 10.4) on a HP-Compaq 6735s (AMD Processor, Vanilla 32Bit Install). My first Install was last year with 9.4 and the Broadcom 4322 wireless worked like a charm after installing the proprietary STA-driver under System -> Hardware Drivers. As the update didn't work out really without glitches, i did a fresh install and lost my wireless. I tried various combinations and tutorials but to no avail. My card is found, the driver installed, but i cannot access my access-point. I can SEE the access point (and all my neighbors'), but knetworkmanager does not seem to do anything. To be sure, I installed wicd (nice tool by the way). Trying a connect here told my my credentials were bad (incorrect passphrase for my WPA2 Personal auth), which is not true. I tried connecting without security, didn't get an IP. So it seems somehow the card is working, but all functions needed for passing information to the access-point are unavailable.
This is what I tried:
both broadcom-drivers fw-cutter installing the driver by hand
Installing the driver via Hardware Drivers produced the same results as any other, viz the card is working, but not connecting. Unfortunately knetworkmanagers error messages are a bit sparse, or rather non existant. My guess is that somehow the firmware is not properly loaded (or the wrong type??).
I have an HP 2133 Mini-Note [KX869AT] with a Broadcom 4312 wireless card. I've had Ubuntu 10.04 on my machine for a few weeks now and everything was great until my wireless card abruptly stopped working. It doesn't detect any wireless networks,uch less connect to them. I tried reinstalling the proprietary driver, but that hasn't worked.
i'm running Kubuntu karmic and i've been using a 3G Huawei E1552 modem to connect to the internet, everything was going well when suddenly my modem stopped working. I've tried reconfiguring everything, i even reinstalled kubuntu from scratch with no success.Here's a part of my /var/log/debug

ethernet suddenly stopped working and can't get it back, says something about device not active but it works well with the Debian live dvd, what could be the problem?I'm using mobile internet now and this seems to have happened after setting up the mobile connection but I dont think it as anything to do with the wired problem.
Recently my wireless stopped working on my Debian testing system. It just doesn't connect. The best I get (only after a reboot) is that it says it did connect, but failed to get IP address. But usually it just tries to connect, disconnects straight away, connects again etc. so it never manages to associate correctly.
I am sure it did work about a month ago, stopped working after recent upgrades from the repository.
Ubuntu and I'm using the latest stable version. Yesterday I had my sound working, but today my sound has stopped working.I've taken the following steps without success:System -> Administrator -> Hardware Devices (finds nothing)
A couple days ago I booted up my Ubuntu 10.10 machine as usual,but the wired LAN connection did not work; it doesn't seem to see any wired connection devices. I can still connect to a wireless network with no problem, and if I plug that same ethernetable into another machine it works fine. I've been happily using this setup for weeks; the LAN only stopped working a day or two ago. So I figure there's two possibilities:A recent update caused NetworkManager to stop working with wired LAN connections, but I'm e only persothed affected (unlikely)My motherboard's ethernet port died (this motherboard only a couple weeks old, so this also seems unlikely)I'm not good at diagnosing problems with networking, so who can tell me where to st
I have no idea what happened. When I restarted my laptop a message telling me that my hardware cannot support Unity came up. This is quite impossible, because I've been running Unity with no problems since 11.04 was released.
Compiz says that the interface is unity, and when I checked in login screen, it's not set to Ubuntu Classic or anything, just Ubuntu.
I have an asus EEE 1015N. Everything worked fine yesterday. I packed my computer, and went back home. After turning it back on, not only it didn't connect to the wifi network, but it did not even detect it. I know it's not broken or anything like that because when I boot into windows it works fine.I've been trying every solutionven in the "sudden wifi problems" threads in the forum (including checking the wifi power button, and trying to manually assign an access point to it), but to no avail.
My skype has suddenly stopped working. It starts then stops halfway though the startup. If i run it from the terminal it say Aborted as it stops. I've triedupdating the whole system, including enabling thee and backports options in software sources. I've tried re-installing skype, I've even re-installed the whole system.
I'm running 64-bit Ubuntu 11.04. I recently updated virtual box and wine. I also installed the expansion kit for the virtual box. Now Ubuntu doesn't read my sound card. I tried reinstalling alsa and pulseaudio but that did not help.
aplay -l shows no sound cards.
I have a Realtek ALC892 8-Channel HD Audio sound card.
