General :: GNewSense No Internet Connection?

Sep 27, 2010

I'm having a problem connecting to the Internet on my gNewSense installation. My Internet works fine through Ubuntu and Windows, but not through gNewSense, is there anyway of fixing this? Also, while searching around I found that somebody said I ought to type "dmesg" and copy the results.

General :: Slackware Internet Connection W/ Intel 6050 Link Wifi/wimax Card

Feb 20, 2011

I'm a Linux newbie. Used to use Ubuntu, but I switched to Slackware because I want to learn how Linux works better.

On my Samsung qx410 laptop, I can't connect to the internet. I went to the System Settings -> Network Settings and all the tabs there, but it wouldn't detect any connection, wireless nor wired.

I noticed that the kernel of Slackware 13.1 is out of date, so I tried compiling a newer one, but I couldn't get that to work.

I tried downloading this file: iwlwifi-6050-ucode-41.28.5.1.tgz but even after reading the readme, I had no clue how to go about installing it or even whether it was the right thing to install in the first place.

How can I get my internet working?

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5721 Network Card Randomly The Network Connection On The Server Will Stop Working?

Jan 29, 2011

I have a Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5721 network card on my server at work.Everything works fine for a few weeks, then randomly the network connection on the server will stop working. After it stops working, I will try to reconnect with the network manager, it shows a wired connection available, it shows the "connection in progress"animation, then the "connection disabled" icon.

I uninstalled the network manager and used manual configuration, but do you think the network manager was the issue? I can't have the server disconnecting randomly every few weeks with no way to know what the real problem is. Was there an issue with the network manager with 10.04?

Debian Hardware :: Load Firmware For BCM Card With No Internet Connection

Jun 19, 2014

I performed an update that has caused issues with my wireless. Errors relating to wireless firmware missing and consequently no internet connection.

I've been through this before with my 2008 macbook air BCM card whose firmware isn't included in installs. In the past I've manually installed the b43-fwcutter package an extracted some firmware... That doesn't seem to be working here.

I've used [URL]i ... cefirmware to troubleshoot. I have not been able to get b43 or wl to work.

I attempted to install the "firmware-b43-installer_015-14.1_all.deb" package; however it depends on wget to download and install "broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2" from wlfinger.com.

So I manually installed b43-fwcutter and used it to extract the broadcom-wl-5 file referenced....

modprobe wl says wl doesn't exist and modprobe b43 doesn't seem to work.

Details:
Code: Select allname-a
Linux air 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.57-3+deb7u2 x86_64 GNU/Linux
lspci -nn
02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4328] (rev 05)

Other things I've tried:

Code: Select allsudo dpkg -i broadcom-sta-dkms_5.100.82.112-8_all.deb
Setting up broadcom-sta-dkms (5.100.82.112-8) ...
Loading new broadcom-sta-5.100.82.112 DKMS files...
Building only for 3.2.0-4-amd64
Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the
kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.

I tried something from broadcom that produced make errors "/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/build: No such file or directory"... I think this means I need some kernel development packages, broadcom says:

Code: Select allOn Fedora install 'kernel-devel' (Development Package for building kernel
modules to match the kernel) from the Package Manager (System->
Administration-> Add/Remove Software).

On Ubuntu, you will need headers and tools.  Try these commands:
# apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
# apt-get build-dep linux

I'm having trouble install this stuff without the net and not sure installing generic headers and build-dep outside of apt-get is the way to go... linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64_3.2.57-3+deb7u2_amd64.deb has alot of dependencies that would take me a while to find and download.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing An Internet Connection Through A Wifi Card

Jan 30, 2011

Im living in a student-city where we get one internet-cable in the wall each, if we need more we are told to use a switch. But, since ive got some tech that depends on wifi, I was wondering if its possible to setup my ubuntu to work like a sort of wifi-switch?

Basically, Im not allowed to set up anything that resembles a router..(so no dhcp) all i need is what a switch would do, only wireless and wpa/wep would be very nice

Atm ive got my cabled network plugged into my onboard ethernet-port, and ive got a d-link DWA-556 (Atheros AR5008 I think) wifi card that i wanted to use to share my connection. is this doable?

even on networks that have no encryption & are non mac filtering i cant connect to. i cant use dhcpcd cause its not installed. my card once again is a broadcom 14e4:4320 BCM4306/3 with b43legacy driver installed. ive been looking into modprobe but i think the modules are loaded proper. could be wrong though thats new to me. i think the ndiswrapper isnt really necessary, but if you say otherwise, i'll give it a try. im using backtrack 4 beta. I know this isnt the best way to go since all my configurations are constantly wiped out. I know this much, i can put the card into monitor mode, and scan for networks on both mon0 and wlan0 and see them..

Fedora Networking :: 14 Can't Connect To SpeedTouch 585 - Either Wireless Broadcom Card Or The Wired Ethernet Card

Dec 4, 2010

Just installed Fedora 14 from the Live CD i686 on my Dell Inspiron 1521. I can't connect to the SpeedTouch 585 on either wireless broadcom card or the wired Ethernet card.

I can connect to it from the same Laptop on the Vista which is on dual boot on the same laptop.

Further confusing is that I ran Fedora 14 and connected to another SpeedTouch today.

Already checked the Channel on the wireless nic and it's on the same one as the SpeedTouch.

General :: Lost (wired) Eth0 After Installing Broadcom Bcm4328 Wireless Card / What To Do?

Dec 31, 2009

I have a dell mp1210 xps laptop. I just recently installed installed Ubuntu 9.10 and am very green. With difficulty I managed to install the drivers for the wireless card and now have wireless on the laptop. In order to get the wireless working I had to restart my computer, and once it booted up again the wireless works, but there is no trace of eth0-my wired network device (Broadcom BCM4401-B0) which was working fine before I got the wireless adapter working. Lspci still shows the device as it did when it was functioning, but ifconfig only shows my local loopback and wlan0 (my wireless device). I am not sure how eth0 got deleted, I am wondering if maybe I have to set up some sort of switching between the wired and wireless adapters so they are not both active at the same time. Any suggestions would be really nice, I have been digging through the forums, but I am unsure of what went wrong or what to do about it.

Fedora Hardware :: Broadcom Wireless BCM4312 On Linux Kernel 2.6.35.10-72

I'm currently using Fedora 14 kernel 2.6.35.9-64, and my wireless card Broadcom BCM4312, which had an issue before with Linux distros, is working fine already, thanks to the kmod-wl software driver. My problem now is this, after updating to kernel 2.6.35.10-72, fedora does not boot, and I noticed that the wireless card is the only thing not activating, compared to the working kernel. And when i looked at the log of the bootup (pressed right arrow key), I saw this:

General :: Windows - Linux Virtualization Choices With Graphic Acceleration / Video Card Support

Jun 5, 2011

I am in the process of building a new desktop machine for work and fun. I am looking to run a undecided flavor of Linux (guessing Ubuntu) as my primary OS and several Windows installs with a Windows 7 install for .net development and gaming as virtualized environments.

From my previous experiences with virtualization software in Linux I was never able to find an application that offered descent video card support / graphic acceleration etc. to be capable of playing any games within one of the virtualized environments. And since I will be investing quite a bit of money into this system for gaming I would naturally want to find the best option available to achieve this setup.

So Onto my question: Is there any virtualization software available for Linux that has full video card support, graphic acceleration and capable of taking advantage of everything the video cards have to offer within the virtualized environments?

Or am I stuck with running Windows 7 as my primary OS and using virtualization for Linux and the other OS's?

Also I have no preference on open/closed source and price range would be up to $175.00 to support at least 3 virtualized environments.

Ubuntu :: Broadcom Wifi Card In 10.04?

Jul 13, 2010

I'm sure you've seen this question before -- I tried searching but I can't find a clear answer. All I need is to get my wifi up and running in Ubuntu 10.04. I'm currently double-booted with XP on a Dell Latitude E5400 laptop. I'm in Windows right now. I can't post my lpsci readout because I can't access the internet from Ubuntu -- no access to wired connection.

I worked on this problem for a long time last night and fixed it somehow by installing a driver program -- it had "cutter" in the name. Today, however, I try to log in and Ubuntu won't connect to an open wifi point. Boot #1 it recognized it but wouldn't connect. Boot #2 it wouldn't recognize it at all (said "wireless is disabled" even though it wasn't. Boot #3 it would recognize the wifi point but wouldn't connect.) I can mantain a constant connection to this wifi in Windows XP and also on my Android phone.

I just want someone to please tell me how to get my wifi working reliably. I'm excited to switch over to Ubuntu, all I need is for the wifi to work. My wifi card is a Broadcom 43xx (4312?). Something like that.

Fedora Networking :: BCM4322 Broadcom Card Can't Use WEP

Jul 11, 2009

I have a Dell-made, Broadcom-based wireless card, BCM4322. I'm using Broadcom's proprietary drivers from RPM Fusion.

Code:
lspci | grep -i broadcom
09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5784M Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10)
0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)

Since installing F11, I can no longer connect to WEP-secured wireless. When I use automatic IP settings, the connection simply times out. When I specify an IP, Netmask, Gateway, and DNS server, NetworkManager thinks the connection properly established, but any pings time out, even when I don't specify a hostname (just an IP address). I can connect to (and use) unencrypted wireless. I haven't tried other encryption schemes. The WEP index is 1 and it's non-authenticated (open). I've been playing with the settings for over a week now with no success.
