I am using fc14 i686, and I am having a problem with my wireless card. Even though the led of the wireless card lights up the network manager claims that the wireless is disabled. I don't understand what is going wrong.I am a newbie trying to be sth better bur for the time being my only help could be the outputs of the lshw, lspci and lsusb commands.
Ive installed Ubuntu recently but none of my attempts to get the wifi network working were successfull. It establishes connection but the indicator shows no signal and I cant connect to any website, I tried pinging external IPs etc. None of these worked. lspci -nn | grep 'Wireless Brand'Does not show anything. I could find 03:00:0 Network Controller: Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 lsmod | grep "wlan_module_name"Doesnt show anything. Restarting network says only: *Reconfiguring network interfaces... Kernel boot messages:
The network Im trying to connect to is hidden, so I have to input SSID manually, I doubt this causes the problem.
My Acer notebook has a button that can disable the wireless network device when pressed. Since it is near the ESC key, sometimes I press it on accident, especially when editing something with Vim. When I press the wireless switch to enable the device again, nothing happens. Using the command ifconfig wlan0 up results in the following error:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132
Rebooting and logging on linux again didn't solve anything. I had to log into windows. The device started out disabled, then pressing the button reenabled the device. I'd like to be able either to reenable wireless at will, or outright disable the wireless switch button.
Opensuse 11.2 comes with a nice Network Manager application and when I first configured my wireless network everything went ok. Unfortunately after shutting down and turn it back on somehow it is being detected but could not enable it again.This is the current status I am getting#lspci|grep -i wireless02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)#iwconfig wlan1
I created new desktop account for my wife but it is not loading and I get an error message on log in that ICE.authority failed to load and than nautilus give an error message that nautilus unable to create folders in home directory. And then I get a blank desktop without any panels.
I am using OpenSuse 11.4(32 bit) on my Lenovo B460 laptop, and as the title points, am unable to use wireless on it. The 'enable wireless' option from icon menu is not greyed out, however clicking it does nothing, it remains disabled.
I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.
I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.
Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.
As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience. ---- EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working. ----- EDIT 2: found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.
I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
I used the windows executable wubii installation for xubuntu 10.04 I'm not dual booting.My problem is all indications in the user interface are selected "enable networking" "enable wireless" and my wireless switch was on throughout and was connected to the internet during the installation in windows.However
I am a day old in ubuntu-world, and I am having internet issues. Yesterday, after i had installed ubuntu alongside windows 7. To begin with it did not detect wireless (not networks but wireless itself), so i figured it was something to do with the adapter and came to these forums where many things were suggested. none worked. So I restarted the system for good measure and lo and behold it detected wireless networks and connected to the internet almost immediately.
Now, after a day, when i have logged in to ubuntu again, there is no wireless detected. The same problem. When I right click on the network icon in the notification area i see that Enable Networking is checked but "Enable Wireless" is darkened. There is no way to check it.
Can anybody please advise as to what to do next. I am using ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx I believe).My system config is i7, 512MB ram.
my computer-toshiba satellite currently running on ubuntu 10.10 i cant connect to wireless except when im at my parents house not to sure why it was working now all of a sudden it stopped while i was using 10.04 figure when i upgraded to 10.10 it would fix it self ..didnt happen so im stumped when i right click on the satelite it the top right of my screen it shows-
-enable networking-(witch is checked) -enable wireless-(witch willnot allow me to click it) -enable notifications-(witch is checked) -connection information- (wont allow) -edit connections..- -about-
dont know why it wont allow me to enable the wireless
I have been using ubuntu 10.10 (running on a Dell Inspiron N4010) for a couple months and love it but the wireless just recently stopped working and I can't figure out how to re-enable it. I've searched endlessly the FAQ's, forums, etc but nothing seems to work.
My wifi used to work and I do not know what made it go off-line as I mostly use my wired connection. Running SuSE 13-3, GNOME, kernel 18.104.22.168-0.7-default on a HP laptop. I wanted to include some diagnostic and configuration downloads from my computer but I am being told I have 5 images included in my post when I Paste the text. Don't know why!
I installed the 4gb persistent version to a usb drive to use on a emachines netbook with 250gb hard drive. Everything worked great from USB had the wireless going and all. Decided to install it to the HDD, followed the steps at the Ubuntu start menu, install from USB. Followed all recommended procedures during install, split the HDD in Half (the only thing on there was windows 7 just bought this thing) at the partition window.
Ubuntu loads fine but when trying to load the wireless driver as before with the usb it doesnt activate. I have to enter in a password, it seems to accept it, a download screen comes up, I see keys going over to the wireless icon and....nothing.
Then tried to load up windows 7...uh oh. I see windows 7 and a windows vista os at the initial option screen. I selected windows 7 and it brought me back, so I selected windows vista and now it is having me recover. I chose the basic recovery first hoping it was due to moving the partition. It is recovering now but I am really worried if it's going to work again as windows 7, vista ?, wipe out Ubuntu or what!
Also, already rebooted Ubuntu a couple times, no luck with driver install
I have recently installed 10.4 (wubi installation), and am having strange problems with my networking.
It was working fine, wireless enabled, connecting to my network fine. Then for what seems like no reason, it decided to disable the wirless on boot, and I cannot re-enable it, the option to enable it (by right clicking the nm applet) is greyed out.
I have had this problem twice now, the first time it happened, my ubuntu installation was really new, so I just reinstalled, no harm done. The second time I did something that seemed to fix it (for a while at least), but now that is not working.
I have recently installed ubuntu on my laptop. However I cannot enable the wireless on it. The card is registered and drivers are installed. From reading previous forums i can guess that its because its "Hard Blocked"" (assumptions). However the switch for it is in the on postion.
We're on vacation here with free wifi and I brought two laptops. The older of the two laptops running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Broadcom wireless chip suddenly wouldn't work this morning. I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.
I have been having some problems with my wireless connection. I am having to start my computer 2 times in order for my wireless connection to work. The first time I start up, even after I enable wireless it wont connect. If I reboot immediately and enable wireless it will then connect. I would like to be able to fix this problem since it has become really annoying to me to have to boot my computer 2 times every time I turn it on. BTW Network manager shows auto-connect, however it also shows i month ago as to the last time the connections were used.
