Fedora Networking :: Netgear WG111v2 Wireless Adapter Won't Stay Online

Jan 28, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12 on my HP a430n PC.I used to run Fedora 10, then moved to Linux Mint 7, then to Ubuntu 9.10 and now I am back to Fedora because I want to become more adept with manual package installation and adding repos.When I ran Fedora 12 immediately after then install, before running yum update PackageKit or the software update, it would use my wireless adapter (Netgear WG111v2) and connect to and stay connected to a network just fine. No hiccups.After running the updates and restarting the computer, the wlan won't stay connected for longer than 20 seconds, which is frustrating when trying to install mp3 codecs.

This seems to be a bug in the latest driver update for the WG111v2, but I might be wrong. Anyone have a fix or a way to revert back to the initial driver (I don't know what the original wireless driver was called).

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Connection With Netgear Wg111v2?

Jun 29, 2010

I have problems connection my wg111v2 to my AP. I am running opensuse 11.2 with kernel The AP itselfe is working fine - as I am using it to access the inet with it from my laptop. However I also tried different channels and encryption schemes with no result. But with my Desktop it is really strange. When I boot up it seems as if I have a connection for a short time (I can start loading a webside but it will stop in the process before it is finished). I have searched for similar problems and found this post: Netgear WG111v2 RTL8187 - openSUSE Forums but some things are different: but I thing the comand line output will tell you more than my talking...

My device:

linux-tn7m:/home/ava/sourcecode/rtl8187L_linux_26.1039.0104.2010.release # lsusb

Networking :: Get Netgear WG111v2 Working Stable At 30 DBm

Jan 31, 2010

Get a Realtek rtl8187l based usb-adapter (such as netgear wg111v2) work in linux is not tricky, but how to get high tx power and driver stability?

You could have tried ndiwrapper, as i did, and got stuck with a kernel module pretty buggy and crashy, or could have just used the common native driver, without hi-power feature.

To achieve my zen state, i had to work around with a base native driver, a feature-filling patch to apply to it, and the only working kernel supposed to work with, 2.6.27.

That's a brief step by step path:

get the base driver (rtl8187 in our case) and decompress: [URL]

get the featuring patch "rtl8187_2.6.27.patch" from: [URL] and extract it in the base driver directory

then apply it with: ~$ patch -Np1 -i rtl8187_2.6.27.patch

remove old modules, compile and install new one (as root)

~# rmmod r8187 rtl8187
~$ make
~# make install

Now you should have a new net device (wlan#) under iwconfig you can use as usual.

To turn on the hi-power capability: ~# iwpriv wlan0 highpower 1

and set the transmission power value (may be dangerous, see below): ~# iwconfig wlan0 txpower <value of 0 to 35> # i use 30, should be around one watt

and wuel you're done you have your pen running strong and stable on the 2.6.27 kernel.

For a detailed reference and clarification about txpower sets, see the aircrack page: [URL]

Networking :: Netgear WG111v2 Wifi Dongle Drivers?

Oct 30, 2010

I have a Netgear WG111v2 Wifi dongle, sadly there is no linux drivers for it. The only solution i can find is to use Ndiswrapper.

Will it be a major challenge writing a Linux driver ?

Where should i start ?

NB. I want to write my own driver for the following reasons:

Get a better understanding of Linux Device drivers. Probably, get a better understanding of C/C++ and Linux in general.

Networking :: NetGear - WN111 V2 Usb Wireless Adapter ?

May 16, 2010

I'm running Slakware 13 (kernel on a inspiron 1525. I use ndiswarper to use the BCM4312 wireless device without any problem but the fact that the driver does not support the Monitor mode. I therefore bought a NetGear WN111 v2 usb stick but I can't get the linux driver.

Even ndiswarper does not work but it's may be because I don't have the right .sys .ins files. (just to try)

So, I wonder if someone has already successfully manged this device working on Slackware 13?

Actually, I don't know if we can make lets say wlan0 and wlan1 working at the same time. I've try many drivers mentioned on Ubuntu forums but none of theme work with me.

Many people talk about wpa_supplicant but I don't know if I really need it to make my wn111v2 working. And what is a firmware?

Ubuntu Networking :: Not Connecting To Internet With Netgear WG111v2 / Solution For This?

Jun 25, 2010

I'll plug in my Netgear wireless USB adapter, and it'll recognize it right away. I'll type in my WEP key, and then it will say configuring. It will then bring up a "Secrets for [router]", with a ASCII key, and I'll check the pass phrase I entered, which is the correct WEP key. I then hit okay, and it says "setting up network address", and then brings up the Secrets page over again.

This particular wireless card works fine on Ubuntu, and worked fine on Zenix, but for some reason, won't work with Kubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Adapter Just Won't Stay On / Fix It?

May 29, 2010

I've recently installed 10.04 LTS on an old laptop. I've not been able to connect to the internet at all. I finally finagled some drivers for my Broadcom BCM4318, and seemed to get everything in order, but it says that the "Radio hardware status changed to DISABLED"

Then, I pushed the button on the laptop to turn the wireless on, and it worked! But then as soon as I let the button go, it turned off. Is there some way to toggle it so it's always on?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Wg111t Netgear Wireless Adapter To Work

i can't get my wg111t netgear wireless adapter to work. I followed the help thing by installing ndisgtk, which installed successfully. I was able to load up the file on the cd that also the help page said. The problem is that the computer won't load up the adapter as it would load up my cd's and flash drive. Here's how i installed ndisgtk. I installed the files ndiswrapper_common, ndiswrapper_1.9, and then the ndisgtk_0.8.5.All of these were for i386.

Hardware :: Netgear WG511v2 Wireless Adapter - Almost Working

Dec 17, 2008

Running HH on a little Toshiba Satellite something-or-other laptop (I want to say A25, but who knows), Verizon FIOS router (wired and wireless).

NetGear WG511v2 adapter is so close to working...

Didn't seem to want to work with ndisgtk, so I ran ndiswrapper from terminal, using driver folder I copied from my Win2K partition.

(Had to do a cp WG511v2.sys WG511v2XP.sys, as the .inf file referred to the latter, but such did not exist; cp seemed to do the trick.) And now, survey says:




In "Network Settings", the card detects a few wireless networks (including my own in-home router). Status LED flashes constantly (which I interpret to be hunting), and every several seconds, it goes solid while activity LED flashes a few times (which I interpret to be finding a network, attempting communication), then activity LED ceases to flash and status LED goes back to flashing (which I interpret to be failing and going around again). Using DHCP, just like the other computers that connect without incident.

I have entered my WEP every way I can think of. The dialog lets me choose WEP ASCII or WEP hexadecimal; I have entered the key in all caps and in lowercase, as ASCII and as hex, have entered 0's and O's where applicable. No combination seems to allow it to actually communicate with my router beyond getting rejected. My other laptop and PC (and this laptop, when running Win2K) all connect just fine; none of them use WPA-type passphrases, so I assume that's unnecessary from Ubuntu. Roaming mode gives the same results as described above.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Stay Online/problems Logging On?

Sep 15, 2010

What happens is that it seems the system has problems logging onto the wireless network. Once I have tipped in the router access code it sometimes logs on immediately, but most of the time it keeps searching for a long time before logging on if at all.Once I have a connection established it is very unstabile. After a few minutes it logs off and starts searching for the network again, asking for the access code every 2 or 3 minutes. Sometimes it finds the network again and sometimes not.As you can probably understand, this significantly reduces the euphoric enthusiasm over having sacked mr. Bill Gates from my life. I should mention at this point that I am a regular pc user with little indepth knowledge and experience so any advice has to be like teaching a bonobo monkey rocket science.

OpenSUSE Install :: WPN111 Wireless Adapter And NETGEAR - Make The Module Load Automatically On Boot ?

Feb 14, 2011

Above adapter can be installed on v10.2 and 11.3 using ndiswrapper:-

1. Copy the 3 driver files from Windows:- like netwpn111.inf, WPN111.sys & ar5523.bin.
(Be carfeul about the exact names, because they have changed over time).

2. sudo ndiswrapper -i netwpn111.inf

3. sudo ndiswrapper -m

4. sudo modprobe ndiswrapper (the adapter should light up at this point and networks will be detected shortly after - see network manager). (Be careful of paths here - e.g. I had to use /sbin/modprobe - so 'whereis' may be necessary to find these commands).

2nd When I reboot, I need to run the modprobe command again. How do I make the module load automatically on boot? Also (and this is minor), can I bypass the KWallet, keyring thing? it seems silly to enter a password for the keyring and then click another password dialog, when I can just as easily enter the password for the network itself.

Fedora Networking :: D-Link DWA-125 Wireless 150 USB Adapter?

May 29, 2010

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.
