Fedora Networking :: Reboot, It Doesn't Work Automatically And Have To 'modprobe B43' Again?
Mar 12, 2011
Struggled a little to get Broadcom driver working with my Dell laptop. But I am at a point where if I manually type 'modprobe b43' the wireless works. If I reboot, it doesn't work automatically and I have to 'modprobe b43' again. Any ideas what I am missing here?I can't seem to figure out how to get this to work automatically. I did check to activate device when computer starts in network manager
I have installed Fedora 12 on my laptop.Installing my Broadcom BCM 4312 wireless drivers works just fine, but after a reboot I have to reinstall them. modprobe wl, modprobe wlan0 etc doesn't work either. I need to reinstall them every time I reboot.
Since my Asus WL-3300 seems to be having trouble, I bought a USB adapter -- a Linksys WUSB54G ver 4. Version 4 was apparently important because it came with a Ralink 2570 chip -- and that's supposed to work with Linux (which is why I chose it).I think it will work because, without loading any drivers, Net Manager can see the local routers (about seven of them). But when I choose mine, though it asks for a WEP key, it never connects. I'm not sure now what driver is loading that *almost* works with it. But I think I may still need to load the driver from: URl...But when you read the page it says that the driver has entered the "Mainline Kernel" -- and I'm wondering if that is why the adaptor almost works.So the questions:
1) Without a driver, should this Ralink 2570 be working at all?
2) How do I find what driver *is* loading?
3) Modprobe doesn't seem to be able to find any rt25x00 module, is this right -- or is there some other name I should be looking for?
iwlink scan, ifconfig, etc., all see the adapter as wlan0.lsusb shows the adapter.I'm going to keep searching, but wrote this in case there is something really simple that I'm overlooking.
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an old PC to make it usable.After some research I was able to get my netgear usb wireless network adapter WG121 to work and connect to the network using ndiswrapper, although at startup I have to open a terminal and type Code: sudo modprobe ndiswrapper before it works. Is there a way to get this to automatically run?
I saw that Evolution 3.0 was available for 11.04 so I decided to give it a shot. I installed it via ppa following these directions:
There were a bunch of dependencies that installed and required a restart. Upon reboot, autologin doesn't work and graphically the desktop is uglier with a different theme. Unity is not working properly, the wallpaper does not exist and many, many artefacts are present.
Based on my description and the posted instructions, is there a way to undo what I did short of a format and re-install?
I read about PulseAudio and thought it might be nice to try (especially the way you could individually control the volume of all applications seems nice), so I installed it and it worked fine.
I rebooted, and now it doesn't work again. Before, when I opened pavucontrol and went to the "Output Devices" tab, it showed the actual output sevices I have. Now it only lists one called "dummy output".
So what's the problem? Also, can I start it before X11 (I guess that putting "pulseaudio --start" in ~/.bash_profile should do it)?
My network is windows pppoe. How can I configure it for Fedora 11? Is there any graphical configuration tool available for that? Also, ubuntu 9.04 logs into pppoe network after restarting as I've made some changes in /etc/network/interfaces. Is there any option available for Fedora 11 to automatically log in to pppoe network after restarting?
I have a Microsoft LifeCam webcam. It works great under Ubuntu 10.04... Until I reboot. After the reboot, Cheese reports no device connected. I have to get down behind my PC, unplug the webcam and plug it in againThen it works... until the next reboot.
I have a problem on Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. The wlan does not connect automatically on reboot, although "Connect automatically" is ticked in network manager. I always have to choose "Connect to hidden wlan", choose my config, enter my password, then connect. Once connected everything works fine. But it's kind of annoying to manually connect each time after a restart.

last week while I was using ssh to the computer1 inside a NAT as usual, I made another tunnel from the computer1 that I was connecting to, to another computer2 inside that NAT (ssh 192.168.1.130) and after making some changes in computer2 I typed reboot. The computer2 rebooted but the tunnel totally hung and I had to kill it in my laptop. Since that day I haven't been able to ssh to the computer1 as I am used to.
Here is some more information:

I have installed knoppix 6.0.1 persistent to a usb flash drive. I am currently testing it on my laptop and have successfully installed the graphics driver for nVidia Geforce 7150m driver 180.51 All looks great until i restart and it doesnt work again. when i go to reinstall it, it says its already there, but when i open the nvidia-settings, it doesnt look the same as before. If i reinstall it, it works again, until i restart of course.In case this is important, here is how i installed the driver in root terminal: sudo apt-get install gcc make init 3 cd /home/knoppix/Desktop sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.51-pkg1.run (A series of questions come up asking to compile a kernel, etc.) (install runs) init 5
I am guessing that the new kernel needed for the driver that is installed is not being booted up on when knoppix restarts. I am just unsure as how I can make this kernel accessible at start up or how to start up this kernel again without reinstalling the driver
I have a Samsung N130 with a Realtek 8192 wifi card (possibly 8192e, I'm not sure) and I am trying to run Fedora 12 on it. I used to run Ubuntu until trying their latest beta and realizing it's not very good, so I looked for something else. Ubuntu was at least easy to get the wifi working with just a few quick commands that were written out, word for word, in order, on the Ubuntu forums. I tried openSUSE on here and it didn't have wifi working out of the box either but people on their forums refused to give me actual instructions and just kept bumping me from thread to thread with people giving vague advice or else just telling me I was looking in the wrong place. I'm hoping that someone can give me clear and detailed instructions on how to get this wifi card working. Keep in mind that I am coming from Ubuntu and so I'm not super comfortable in CLI, if I need to do some CL stuff I will need clear and detailed instructions on how to do that.
I'm runnig f 13 on my laptop, and it runs like a charm. But once in a while, the internet doesn't seem to work properly. It mostly works, but right now i am unable to reach certain pages such at google (which is annoying), whereas other pages like yahoo and this one works perfectly well.
how nobody else could have run into this in the meantime. [URL] Two friends of mine are having the same issue on Ubuntu-11.4-machines. In short: Connecting to the Cisco-VPN via shell-command "vpnc" works flawlessly, whereas NetworkManager just doesn't connect at all. We had this working in older versions of Fedora/Ubuntu about some months ago...
I can't use Network Manager (it continue to ask me for the WPA password9. So I stopped it and I use command line, following this: [URL]
From the log I can see that it tried to associate to AP and after a lot of tries: it connects BUT the connection is really SLOW and UNSTABLE! (pinging hosts on the same network gives me about 50% packets loss) I am worried about this entry in the log:
ath5k phy0: unsupported jumbo
I am going to try to install madwifi, but before that I'd like to have your opinion and listen your experience! I see a lot on infos about ath5k, but I'd like to be pointed to the right direction!
I've currently got the beta of fedora 12 installed, hope to upgrade that once the final release comes out. I'm having so many problems getting wireless to work. I've got a edimax ew-7711utn wireless adaptor. It doesn't work. Really what I want is to take it back and get a wireless card that will work.
I find it very frustrating that documentation suggests using PEERDNS=no in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ ifcfg-eth0 in order to override resolv.conf information only to find out that both NM and network init scripts ignore DNS1, DNS2 and DOMAIN settings.So my question is how do I correctly configure resolv.conf settings that will persistently override dhcp information on a F12 system that has NM removed and uses the network service scripts?
I recently installed Fedora 15 x86_64 on my new AMD Machine and I'm quite pleased with things thus far.Here's where my problem comes. I mainly bought that machine to help me with Development. More specifically, Virtual Machines for testing purposes. I have installed Fedora 15 x86_64 as a qemu-kvm Virtual Machine and it's working.. for the most part. I am having a whole lot of trouble getting it to connect to the Internet.
My guess is the only way I'm going to reliably do that is to setup a Bridge. Yes/no? However, in order to setup a Bridge I need to disable NetworkManager and that where the fun happens. It completely disables my network connection. I'm probably missing something small, but I can't figure out what I'm missing. I've double checked my ifcfg-em1 multiple times(I've been trying for ~24 hours so far) and all the settings are as they should be.
I've turned NetworkManager off and stopped it(chkconfig and service) and turned network on(chkconfig and service). Theoretically I should simply need to turn off NM and turn on network and things should be fine. no?
I am a convert from Ubuntu (9.04 kept freezing on my laptop; when it did work, many packages it seemed were outdated--ie only Eclipse 3.2, rdesktop was messed up [and apparently is also in Fedora]), and I am having some trouble with getting my wireless working.I am running Fedora 11.First off, there is a problem when trying to connect when using DHCP. NetworkManager gets to the second green dot, and then after a short while I am given a message that the connection was disconnected.
Configuring the interface manually, not using DHCP, allows the connection to complete. However, the internet is very slow. There is a 15-30 sec delay before website loading actually commences, and then another delay each time an ad must be fetched from another server.How can I fix this delay? I know I have encountered it in earlier versions of Ubuntu, but I can't remember how I fixed it.About the rdesktop problem, if anyone is able to help [maybe I should post another thread?], the cursor color (the color of the pointer) is inverted---where it should be white it is black, and where it should be black it is white. I use rdesktop a lot to connect to my terminal server in my basement. Any idea how to fix it?
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:
