Hardware :: Wireless Card Not Installed In Lubuntu Even After Windows Driver / Get It?
Aug 13, 2010
I have installed Lubuntu on my dell Latitude C400. Recently I had Unbuntu, but my system was to slow for it. The wireless worked when I installed sl-modem-daemon_2.9.11~20100303-2_i386.deb, however this does not work with Lubuntu. I have used the ndiswrapper to install a driver from windows, and still it is not installed.
After iwconfig i get
lo no wireless extensions
eth1 no wireless extensions
The other problem is this laptop has no cd dive and the ethernet connection does not work, so I can t do updates.
I just installed Linux Mint 9 as a dual boot install with Win XP. Trying to activate wireless network card driver and video driver. Pops up: "You are not authorized to perform this action".How do I get authorized?
Now every time I boot Win XP, the Internet Explorer menu bar is all blacked out and goofy. If I log out and back in it corrects itself. If I reboot it's blacked out again. Re-installed IE8. Still blacks out.Also Firefox in Win XP crashes expectantly. It has NEVER crashed on me previously.
Finished installing Ubuntu 10.10 in my XPS15, intel i5 4g ram, nvidia GT 420M graphics card,
problem is when i go to additional drivers, the driver listed (Nvidia accelerated graphics) when I install it and reboot it the computer starts on the terminal, no graphic interface. All I get is the black screen asking me login and password, when I enter them, just get the terminal prompt in a black screen.
I have no idea where to start when it comes to wireless networking. I am working on my home laptop computer that I have set up as Ubuntu Server 10.04. I don't even know if my wireless card is installed or not. Where do I start with all of this? I have no gui (runlevel 3 only) and The network I want to connect to has no security.

I installed newest Ubuntu system, 11.04, Natty-Narwhal, and PC is running smoothly. It is solid machine, Celeron 430, 1 gb of DDR2 memory and I have both LAN card and graphics integrated on the mobo which is MSI 7529, based on G31/P35/P31 chipset.
I plugged lan cable directly from my PC to the ADSL router. There is another Win Xp machine on the same router and it has connection, and internet is working fine. Right now Im writing from the Win 7 laptop, which is connected to the same router via wifi link... all working like a charm...
But, when I plug the Ubuntu desk I cannot get access to bot lan and internet...
I searched the net and it seems that ubuntu didnt install proper driver during the OS installation. Here are some diagnostics of the current config and state:
Code: Module Size Used by binfmt_misc 13213 1 snd_hda_codec_realtek 255820 1 code....
As you can see I need to install driver named r8101 instead this one r8169 and I think it will work that way. I found driver here only problem is dont know how to replace them.
I have a MSI CX600 notebook with a :Ralink 802.11bgn 1T1R Mini Card Wireless Adapter (this name appears in WIndows 7)Can anybody tell me how to install it on Ubuntu 9.10,because I don't have internet connection.
I am a new member and new as well to ubuntu. I've installed the ubuntu 9.10 karmic koala in my laptop (fujitsu siemens amilo pro v3405). Installation went well but it did not installed my wireless card, I think. I checked my wireless card model and it is a intel pro/wireless 3945ABG. I have downloaded it and saved it in the downloads folder but I don't know how to install it?
I've read a lot about wireless network cards but I haven't found something similiar to my problem. I've a belkin wireless card F5D7000tt and its driver bcmwl5.inf. I think I've correctly installed it because when I use "ndiswrapper -l" i get:
WARNING: all config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future realease. bcmlw5.inf: driver installed device (14E4:4320) present (alternate driver : ssb)
But when I go to Hardware Drivers I see that "Broadcom B43 wireless driver" is not enabled, and when a try to enable it I get an error message:"We are sorry, but the installation of this driver failed. Check the register archive to see more details: /var/log/jockey.log"
I have a Dell Vostro 1500 that has a Broadcom BCM4312 wireless card installed. I do not have access to a wired connection to the web so any thing I have to install is a download on my windows machine and then transfer that to the debian machine. I just finished installing Debian Squeeze but can not get my wireless card to scan for any networks. I found a tutorial at [URL] and followed the steps there. Finding all the dependances and installing them one by one (took me all day). My wireless card still will not scan for networks. After doing a 'sudo ifconfig eth1 up' it still will not scan for networks.
Output from ifconfig: raygo75@RayGo-2:~$ sudo ifconfig eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:16:44:9b:e9:cc inet6 addr: fe80::216:44ff:fe9b:e9cc/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:17 Base address:0xc000
How do I get around this? It wants to get something from [URL] and I do not have internet access. It looks to me like it just wants to download the wl dirver, again, which I have done in the previous instructions I found. I am a retired UNIX (hp-unix) administrator so I know my way around the system.
According to a help page (Wireless Network Card Installation - openSUSE) I need to use ndiswrapper to install the windows driver for my wireless. However it appears the command 'ndiswrapper' was not installed with the operating system. How can I obtain the package for ndiswrapper and install it? Not being connected to the wifi makes this step tricky
I am completely new to linux so a lot of this has been foreign to me. I have ran the lspci command to find out my wireless card is Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 and I found the driver for this card at:it won't let me post the URL for some reason...but i googled "Broadcom BCM4313 driver for linux" and it's the first link.I downloaded the 32-bit driver but now I have absolutely no idea what to do.The download has folders named lib and src, and a text file called Makefile.
Installed 9.10 side-by-side with Vista, then installed the Broadcom STA wireless driver, rebooted to activate it no luck, no connection, neither wireless nor wired. Did this several times. Getting online in Vista works fine.
Here's the system I'm using:
HP tx2500z laptop Vista Home Premium SP1 AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile processor RM ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card Broadcom 4322AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n WiFi adapter Realtek RTL 8186C (P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)
I downloaded ubuntu 10.10 in my PC alongside with windows 7 yesterday. However it could not detect my wireless LAN then with some hardwork I was able install the wireless device driver but still no internet!
Before I start off, I must say that I know NOTHING about Ubuntu. I only know how to run .deb files. So I installed my wireless driver via the graphical ndiswrapper (FYI my wireless adapter is a Proxim 8424-WD). It then said "Unable to see if hardware is present". After I exited out of that message, it said "Hardware:Present" (or something of that sort) next to the newly installed driver. I tried searching for wireless networks and found none. I'm guessing something didn't work right. I used this command "lshw -C network" and got the following result.
I am brand new to Linux and Ubuntu. However it was very easy and smooth to install and get updated using my wired ethernet connection. I am now trying to understand how to have my wireless network adapter recognized or driver installed. I will be searching around the forums but it suggested I make an initial post as a new user. I am using an older Dell Inspiron 2200. I believe the chipset in my wireless adapter is indeed Broadcomm, so hopefully that will help direct any responses.
I have installed a wireless card in my Ubuntu 9.04 System. When I start Firefox, it keep searching for a while and it cannot connect to the internet. I have attached screen shots of network connections. When I type the address of the router in the browser address window, it cannot access the router.
I'm trying to install the driver for mi wireless card. The instructions say that to build the tar.gz file, I have to:
# mkdir hybrid_wl # cd hybrid_wl # tar <path>/hybrid-portsrc.tarhybrid-portsrc-x86_64.tar.gz
The third step i don't understand. I want the folder of the driver to be located in a folder inside home called "Programas" so what I did was to open the terminal, went su, and then did cd Programas. Then I followed instructions 1 and 2, but I don't know what to put where it says <path>.
I am very new to Linux and need to install a driver for my wireless card. I am trying to install the RT3070 v22.214.171.124 driver from Ralink. I am running Fedora 126.96.36.199-167.fc11.i686.PAE. I have read the thread in the Solutions section about this driver, but unfortunately this is somewhat above my levels of comprehension, and I don't really know where to start.
Here is the output.

I had Karmic a while back, but i got rid of it becasue of my Bcm4312 Wireless Card would not recognize the STA driver, or bcm43xx.In that time i learned a bit of command line stuff. anyways now that I have my internet working, I was just wondering What I could do with ubuntu. I am interested in the command line and Programming. Where could I learn more about the 2 subjects?
i followed a tutorial and i used NDISWRAPPER to install the windows drivers and my device WUSB300N (wireless network card) worked perfectly. Once i rebooted however, the drivers are still installed but not activated if you get me? so the wireless card is just not read by the operating system.
i have found a flavor or linux i now prefer and i installed it on my laptop. i went to configure the wireless card and it tells me no wireless networks found. i can run off of the ethernet port just fine. the wireless card that's in this laptop is a cisco mpci-350 series. i would like to be able to use the laptop without having to be tethered to an ethernet cable. what can i do. how do i correct it and how would i go about installing the driver if i have to in zencafe since there isnt anywhere to install a driver.
