I just bought a new laptop. This one came with win7 home. The wireless works perfect. Today I installed ubuntu 10.4 next to windows. I made a first connection which went easy. But after 30 seconds it disconnects. Then it tries 30 seconds to reconnect. It reconnects and after 30 secodns or so, it disconnects again. It keeps doing this all the time on ubuntu while on windows it works without any problems. This is what sais under the device manager for my wirelesscard stuff:
Intel(R) WiFi 1000 BGN Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2 Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
Im having some problems with the wireless too. I have an Acer Aspire 5050 laptop with the latest version of ubuntu on it. I have a wireless modem and every time I go to connect to the internet the wireless connections keep conflicting againts each other and then I get disconnect every 30 mins and when I try to connect again it just keeps disconnecting, at first when I installed ubuntu it couldn't find the wireless network until I created one and now it seems to find all connects around the area but when I go to connect to mine it just keeps connecting and Disconnecting.
I have a computer running Ubuntu, and a MacBook Pro. I need to buy a decently cheap wireless router that I can hook up to my Ubuntu so that it will send wifi signals and I can use the wifi to go online with my MacBook Pro. I was about to get one today, but remembered how Ubuntu is picky about working with things like that. I'm only going to be using it to get signals around the house which isn't that big at all.
So what would be the cheapest and decently efficient wireless routers that I can use which Ubuntu will cooperate with?
Ubuntu 10.10 connects to a DSL modem without any problems - I mean I just plugged it in and it worked - GREAT I bought a wireless router so I could connect my netbook and now my Ubuntu machine which is simply using a cable from the wireless router now DOES NOT connect. I tried a windows machine on the wired connection from the wireless router and it connects without a problem. OF course if I remove the wireless router from the chain, i.e. simply connect directly to the modem it works straight away.
When fedora initially starts up, the network manager shows all the available wireless connections available to me. However, when I select my wireless connection, it will go through the loading process where it shows the two green dots and the circular moving blue streak, then it prompts me to put in the wpa password.
This is where the trouble starts...when i input my wpa password, it will proceed to attempt to connect to my network but it never succeeds in doing so--it will keep on asking me to input my wpa password. when i finally get sick of doing it over and over again, i just hit cancel instead of retrying to connect.
After i stop trying to connect, the network manager no longer shows all the available wireless networks--the list is completely empty, and i can find no way to get the list to show up again, with the exception of restarting my computer.
I am able to connect to the internet with a wired ethernet, but id like my wireless to work.
For several months I was using EDUP adapter with both my laptop that operated on Ubuntu 9.04 exclusively and a desktop that could also boot with XP. Soon after 9.10 was released I updated my laptop and was able to use the adapter to connect to the Net.Recently, I also updated the desktop but also made it exclusively a Linux machine. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get the wireless adapter to work again on the desktop.The OS recognizes the device as wlan0, and lsusb shows:Bus 003 Device 005: 0cde:0008 Z-Com Sitecom Wireless Network Adapter 100G+ WL -125The network manager recognises the availability of the wireless network and attempts to connect. After trying for a while it comes up with a dialog box "Wireless Network Authentication Required" and in response I enter the WPA password but with no success.The behaviour would indicate that I am entering the wrong password but I am not.I have checked it several times and compared with the password that works with the laptop.
I have installed Ubuntu x86 10.04 LTS onto an old Dell machine which is connected to my broadband modem and Netgear Wireless Router (WGR614 v6). The router is encrypted with 64-bit WEP and allows my System76 Pangolin Performance laptop to connect flawlessly out of the box. However, my sister runs Windows XP Professional 32-Bit on a Dell Latitude D830. This machine's wi-fi card is an Intel PROSet Wireless which recognizes the router but can't access it.
What should I do on her laptop in order for her to access the wi-fi router?
router comtrend CT-536T but now my laptop lenovo r61i is not able to connect to it. like it has a issue with wap/wap1. Is their a possibility to get it to connect. the other router maxG (US robotics) is wep/hex based. any suggestions ? It only made a connection the first time and after the signal wasn't even noticeable .
My router is a Netgear router with Comcast, and after going on Ubuntu for a couple hours just doing normal things, the Internet disconnects. Then I have to restart my computer and start everything over again. I check the router and everything seems to be fine, I even unplug everything on the router first (like I am instructed to do so if this sort of thing happens) to make sure that's not what is causing the problem. It has to be the Ubuntu system.
I dual boot Windows/Fedora 11 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop, which has an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card and I have just bought a Linksys WRT160NL wireless router. I am currently trying to set up OpenWRT linux on the router. Because of the nature of my problem I have also posted this on their forum.I am having trouble connecting to my OpenWRT install via Fedora. Things seem okay in Windows, but when I try to connect from linux my laptop locks up completely and I have to hard reboot. I previously have never had any trouble connecting to any other router with this install of Fedora.
I am using fedora 12, for about 2 months and now I am facing for the first time a problem with the wireless router. After a router restart my computer cannot connect with the router even if it is listed along with other access points on the list. I am sure the password is right because I am currently online with my windows partition using the same router.

The wireless used to be working fine until the router restart (switch on/off the hardware) has happened
I made some tests with a router without security and my internet connexion worked without any problem. But if I activated the wep security (or wpa it is the same behaviour) suse 11.1 won't connect in any way.
I used knetwork manager and traditional ifup method, both failed to connect.
I saw, using iwconfig that in both cases (wpa or wep) I was associated with the AP but dhclient won't work in any way, I was always in the APIPA...
I checked if there weren't any access control (mac address filtering, ...) and all the settings in the router were off to give me full access. Including the firewall set to off. The DHCP feature was on in both cases.
I noticed that the firewall must be on in suse 11.1 otherwise I couldn't have any connections even if I disabled wep or wpa...
Using openSuSE 11.4 D-Link DWL-520+ won't connect to my router. The computer recognises the wireless card is there and working but I can't get it to connect to the router. Not sure how to get it to connect.
I have always had trouble in the past getting wireless adapters and what not to start working on Ubuntu but with each 6-month upgrade most problems are fixed while new ones are made. Since Ubuntu 10.10 just came out I thought I'd give it a go and test it with my hardware.
Before 10.10 Ubuntu could not connect with my wireless device and I had to do many things with gedit and such to get it working. After I have upgraded to 10.10 Ubuntu now recognizes my wireless device and network and I can search the web...but wait here it comes.
Literally minutes after a fresh install and first connection to my network my wireless signal will drop and prompt me to reconnect. Of course the first thing comes to mind I reconnect which doesn't work so I unplug the device and replug it making it works...Two minutes later my connection drops again and so I so reboot, and if you really want to know what happens next just restart this paragraph.

My son lost his USB Wireless stick for his Computer. I had thought I heard that if you had a second wireless router, you could use it somehow to detect the wireless router you have already set up in your home (like using a wireless card)? Is this what Ad-Hoc is? Either way, can this be done and if so how? I use a WRT54Gx2 Lynksys router and have a TRENDNET TEW-432BRP wireless router and also a spare D-link DI-514. I use ubuntu 10.04, and also wanted to know if I connected one of the router to his on the LAn port could he connect msaybe through an Ad-Hoc on my local computer here? He uses XP on his. I'm a newbie to linux and networking in general.
I have a Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 (as it came from the factory, no mods), a Linksys WRT54G router, and Ubuntu 9.10/Karmic with all updates. I've had issues since I upgraded from 9.04/Jaunty to 9.10/Karmic. It did work for awhile (I think a few days), but then it suddenly just couldn't find our wireless network. I reformatted (with 9.10) thinking it had just been a bad install - now I can connect to our network, but it throws me off every two minutes. My roommate (Dell laptop, Vista) has no problems with the internet, and I've visited a friend (in another state) and used her wireless internet without issues (though I couldn't tell you which router they were using). I've gone into our router's settings (with both my laptop and my roommate's) to reset the router or change the security settings, but with no real progress.
Brand new to linux/ubuntu..Just downloaded the most recent version. Well when i try to connect to my network....it connects...then about 2 min later it disconnects and i have to unplug and replug my adapter.
I installed ubuntu 10.04 a few days ago. And I am running into a few problems wherein my wireless network disconnects and prompts me again for password.
Even when I re-enter it (correctly of course) I cannot reconnect and I have to do a system restart. After the restart, the wireless stays connected but disconnects again after a while and I find myself stuck in this loop.
I do not know if the following is any help, but below I am producing the output of lspci command and a few log messages that I think maybe related to this problem
Here is the output of lspci command
And here are some messages that show up quite often in daemon.log
I'm finding my wireless connection is disconnecting alot, I never had this problem when I was runnning windows 7. I have tried running wicd client but found it was doing the same, then uninstalled the normal network manager and tried just using wicd but it kept saying bad password and wouldnt connect at all. Even though it would work fine but disconnect alot when i still had network manager on.
I moved my server and network equipment, and now the wireless works but I cannot get my server online. I host a website, so this is kind of urgent.
I have a wireless router and can access the internet fine on my laptop. My server is wired & connected to the router. It sets up the networking properly.. ifconfig has an ip address, the default gateway is present. But I cannot ping google, or even the router. It says destination host unreachable.
So I go back to the laptop to check the router settings.. sometimes it likes to assign the server the wrong internal ip. But, I can't access the router settings either! The page (192.168.1.1) times out. Same with trying to ping the router. How can the laptop be online if it can't reach the router?
Oddly, ifconfig on my laptop reports an ip address starting with 99.233. It's always given me an internal address starting with 192.168. What's going on here? Is the router not allocating an internal ip? I use wicd to connect, if it's relevant.
We have a windows laptop that can only get a "local connection". Now it does sound like the router is forwarding directly to my laptop, instead of allocating internal ips.
This is a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell XPS M1530. I'm getting very frequent disconnects to my wireless network, despite good signal. I have wicd and nm-applet running side by side, wicd doesn't work by itself and nm-applet won't get a new IP after reassociating with the AP.
Wireless connection is steady in Windows 7, so I'm guessing it's a problem with the driver.
I've had my PC connected to my router since I installed Ubuntu. My router has the address and name password for my ISP. I'd like to plug my PC directly into my ISP line, but the network manager won't find the connection, and I don't know how to tell my PC my ISP's address and the name and password to logon with. I set up my router, and I know how to make the connection in XP, but I don't know how to in Linux. I have very limited Terminal experience.
