General :: Wifi Device Isnt Working On Compaq Mini 110 - Mint 10
Mar 26, 2011
I am brand new to linux and i am finding it really frustrating cause i always thought i had quite a knack for computers. ive looked online and searched a bunch of stuff but because im so new to linux i am having a hard time even understand some of the stuff. i really want to get comfortable/fluent with linux and unix and what not.
My netbook model is HP Compaq Mini 110 the distribution i am using is Linux Mint 10
My broadcom wifi device isnt working or something.
When i first installed mint, it said that i needed non-free drivers?
The ethernet cable instantly gave me connection and i was able to run updates but the wifi still doesnt work i think the updates only updated the free ones and not the non-free ones cause i dont remember ever specifying to download the non free ones how do i manually specify to download all available updates?
I also typed:
The output says:
Also when i right click on the little network sign on the bottom right corner, then it says "Wireless Networks device not read (firmware missing)"
I installed ubuntu 10.10 on my Compaq C700, but when I started it up, I am unable to enable wireless. While reading through other boards, it is apparently common for this computer. However, I have not seen anyone address how to enable wifi on ubuntu 10.10.
I discovered that the wifi usb dongle i used for years went bad so i got an asus dongle that i cant get working.Might it be because my system is looking for my old one and the new one isnt being recognized? (e.g.wlan setting?)
is there a program or something to enable my presario 2100 to read a linksy's program disc? the disk says it should run automatically, but the comp keeps sending an error message that its either a multi-part drive? or its a zipfile and it cannot recognize.
I install ubuntu in a compaq mini CQ10 and it worked very well, found no problems with the hardware, then I start to download more than 200 mb of updates from the update manager, after the reboot, a black screen appears with a underscore in the top and ubuntu doesn't start.
I have got a lap top (Compaq Mini 311), I tried to install Ubuntu 10.04, but after installing it I found only a black screen with a blinking whithe bar, and the keyboard does not work anymore.Looking across the net, I found this page , where is written that I have to install the previous version, do some operation and then upgrade it. Well, also with Ubuntu 9.10 and Ubuntu 9.04 I have got the same problem: total freezeing of the computer after the installation.
So, I tried to install ubuntu with wubi, as a virtual machine, but the problem is exactly the same.Somethimes, it may happen that Ubuntu loads, but it happens about in 1/50 cases.I installed it many times, everytime erasing the partition, but actually I have a boot menu with about 6 or 7 linux (not working), and windows, loading windows I can choose between win and ubuntu, if I choose ubuntu, I have 5 options: 4 are not-working-linux, and one of them is windows. If I choose windows, I come back to the previous menu: a loop on grub was done, but I don't know how.
The netbook wired internet was working fine UNTIL I reset the internet modem! and then it no longer was able to connect to the internet.
I read several threads and did sudo lshw -C network
It said network disabled ethernet interface Atheros AR8132 lic gigabit ethernet adapter physical id 0 bus info pci@0000 :02:00.0 sonia@sonia-laptop:~$ sudo lshw -C network [sudo] password for sonia: *-network
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my Mini 700 EL and when I start it doesn't give me the option to install it alongside Windows. Wubi does not give me the option to install onto the system, only to reboot and install it completely. When I try to install from booting from the USB key, I decide to edit partitions manually and I don't get the option of resizing the Windows partition, I can only delete it.
I'm new to Fedora, I used to have Ubuntu 10 and found that some software I required would not work properly so I decided to Fedora under recommendation from a friend. I really like it but when I installed Fedora 13 on my Netbook I found it difficult to set up my wireless connection.
I have a compaq mini 110-1000 with integrated 3g modem and natty narwhal. I bought a vodafone data sim card, I've configured the network manager but it doesn't work! All solution I found are possible only with the hp connection manager. but I've removed windows!!

I just installer Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Compaq Mini 700EL, the ubuntu website says that everything works very well including the wireless. But for some reason the list of connection doesn't appear at all. It just says "device not ready" This is driving me a little nuts. It appears that the Broadcom drivers are installed. I typed lspci on the terminal and it says that the computer loads a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
I also downloaded the drivers even though they should be already in it. But I'm not sure.
I recently isntalled Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid on my HP Compaq Presario CQ42. Recently being around two to three weeks ago. The first day I had it I didnt have sound due to my alsa version not being updated to 1.0.23 (something like that, i just know .23 was the version i upgraded to) and then along with another fix this solved my audio problem. There were a few issues with the audio after that, such as vlc and other app sounds not working after playing audio in a browser, requiring (as far as i know) a restart every time. This wasnt a big deal and i was getting around to finding out how to fix it but then today...
While at school I closed my laptop lid (as i usually do), but when i opened it again the screen flicked back and forth between some screens that usually show at boot (not bios, something else). Then Ubuntu told me that it didnt detect any of my drivers and that i should start in low graphics mode, and i did, but i made sure to select the just for this session option. I think this may have happened because I was running on low bat at the time but i cant be sure. When i restarted it booted up normally, and graphics and everything were back to normal except...Since that happened my audio has not been working at all. The sound icon is still in the notification panel but there is nothing next to it, eg. volume level. Its not even "--" to indicate mute, there is just nothing there and when i got to sound preferences there is no device under hardware, and when i run the command aplay -l it says there is no sound card found.When i run the lspci -v | less command an audio device is clearly listed :00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 1425 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11 Memory at 94400000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel
I've got a new HP Compaq Mini 110c-1110SD. I've booted Ubuntu UNR 10.04 Beta2 from a USB stick and at first it seemed like everything worked so I installed it (dual boot with the installed Win XP which works fine, no network problems)
But .. I forgot to check if internet worked. Since I don't have a wireless, I plugged in a cable and the Auto eth0 showed up as connected.
Looks good, but I can't get internet to work. Local browsing on my LAN works ok, but getting on the internet doesn't work neither does apt-get so updating is a problem too. Strangely enough, ping does work ...
I thought it had to do with UNR being a beta, so I've booted from a live UNR 9.10 usb stick, but same problem, no wired internet.
I'm totally stumped. I've been running Ubuntu since 2007 on several PC's and never had any problems with networking.
I got a Sony Vaio, with ubuntu 10.04 running on it. Everything was fine, exept for that i didnt had any sound when i wanted to listen music on ...../my pc.My sound sometimes work, sometimes it didnt. if it works, i and if i wanna listen to like pink floyd.i have a nice big monitor on my desk( actually just a small 23 or 24 inch one.) that monitor is connected to my laptop of where the lid is closed. the sound was coming from my monitor ( there boxes in it.. ) that is to connected with a wire to my laptop ( the sound )on 10.10 and 11.04 and windows 7 was the sound fine, now on 10.04 the sound isnt working on my monitor, my headphones, or my laptop itself.I dont want to change my os, or upgrade it to 10.10 or buy a new soundcard.
I have installed Mint8. I was using VPN connection before to be able to use skype (it's blocked in the Middle East...) but can't get it to work in Linux I've installed the network manager, added and configured the VPN connection but when I click on it to connect it doesn;t do anything. No window popping up, no error message... anyone has got an idea what else I should do in order making it work? or how else can I use skype without logging into private networks?
another "problem" we have got 2users on Linux and the other one cannot see the wifi icon in the bottom right corner on his desktop. after nm applet (or some command like that ) i got back that its been taken by another user. so can only one user see this icon on his desktop??
my creative sound card isnt working with my ubuntuit's my 1st time to use ubuntui have a built in sound card but it's not workingwritten Ectiviai dont have an ectivia soung card i have Creative and Realtiki want the ubuntu to install the Creative
My ubuntu isnt working after i write my password and press enter it does nothig but gives a massage ''the configuration defaults for GNOME power manager have not been installed correctly'' the recovery console doesnt work too(same problem) the problem appeared after i installed bittorent client called smth starting with 'd'.
I recently installed Ubuntu Desktop Edition 10.10 . Everything works fine till the wifi is switched on. It keeps blinking and seems to work sometimes and intermittently hangs the system. Plus the machine hangs while shutting down whenever the wifi is turned on. I tried out acpi=no, pci=noacpi .
Note:I was also getting rt2800_pci_MCU_Status related hardware error and then added rt2800 to the blacklist.cfg , but this does not seem have affected the wifi and the hanging issue.
I just installed helena on my compaq presario cq61-223sa but i can't get the altec Lansing speakers to work and my internal mic as well. I'm fairly new at linux and have tried looking for drivers but i couldn't find any.
I am trying Linux with the mint cd rom install. I have two hard drives and bootit ng on hdo, with windows xp. I installed mint the first time on hd1 using the install cd. When I booted up I could run the linux but not the windows. I reinstalled bootit ng but had not luck. I reinstalled Linux again and this time tried to get it to install grub on a certain partition but still no luck. I reinstalled it again and this time disconnected hd0 and it worked again and I could run the linux with no problem. But when I connect hd0 I can boot windows but not linux. Bootit sees the other hard drive and can see all the partitions on it but every time I try to boot it just says the partition is not bootable.
I have fiddled with various settings and tried setting the embr and hard drive swap but nothing works. Bootit web site had some help pages that said to run grub from a bootable cd and then type grub> find /boot/grub/stage1. I have tried this but always get error code 15 file not found. grub> find /grub/stage1 same thing I install mint using the following partitions. /boot is about 300 megs. / is about 3 gigs and /home is 8 gigs and /swap is 1 gig. I feel that if some knew bootit ng then they could tell me what to do in five minutes. The hard drive is there and recognized and the partitions are there the system works but I just can not boot to it with out disconnecting the one hard drive
