OpenSUSE Network :: WiFi Adapter Does Not Seem To Be Recognized

Aug 11, 2011

I Have an HP Pavilion G6. I recently installed openSUSE after having no luck with another linux distribution. I was told openSUSE is more compatible with laptops, so I figured I'd give it a try. I am now facing the same problem I had been facing w/ the other distribution (Ubuntu). My Network Adapter doesn't seem to be recognized by any linux operating systems. It is a Ralink 802.11b/g/n WiFi adapter. When I open the "network" tab, my home wifi is not listed, nor are any around me. In fact, I can't even open the "wireless" tab.

I've installed any recent drivers for my adapter, and I went to extensive lengths to try to solve the issue on my previous linux distribution. I don't know what output to give you from the terminal, nor do I really know any commands to look for anything. On a side note, I had been messing with my touchpad application, trying to set my preferences. I check the boxes for horiz. and vertic. scrolling with two fingers, and apply. They don't work. I check the boxes for using two finger tap to do something, and three finger tap to do something else.

Ubuntu :: Vm Ware Network Adapter Not Recognized On Server VM

Feb 17, 2010

I installed a ubuntu server edition on a VMware workstation. The problem is , when I added a network adapter (so, total 2 adapters now), the second one was not being shown in ifconfig. On trying ifconfig eth1, I found that the 2nd adapter didn't have an ip address. So, I installed ubuntu desktop edition on another VM, and this time it showed both the network adapters on doing ifconfig, and both had ip addresses. Why doesn't this work with ubuntu server?

General :: Switching Between Windows Would Cause A Network Adapter To Stop Being Recognized?

Feb 15, 2011

I am using Linux and Windows 7 on the same machine and my on-board NIC is functional under both. However, the weirdest thing happens when I browse the internet under Linux and then return to Windows; my NIC stops being recognized! This happens under Windows but also in Linux when I return! This problem is then easily fixed by resetting the CMOS, but inevitably occurs again. Why does this happen? Update The CMOS reset works but is not necessary for me. Shutting down and unplugging the power cord works as well.

General :: Wireless Network Adapter Recognized Or Driver Installed?

Jan 17, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB Wifi Adapter Works When Connected Directly But It Doesn't With Cable

Jun 4, 2010

I am using this usb wifi adapter, it uses zd1211rw and it works fine if I connect it directly to the usb port, but if I add a cable (around 5mts) between the usb port and the usb plug, the device doesn't appear (I used iwconfig to check). The green light on the wifi adapter turns on but it doesn't blink like it does when connecting it directly without the cable. What could be happening?

I use the same cable + usb wifi adapter in windows, and it works fine, I can scan and connect without problems. When I use the cable, lsusb doesn't show the device neither, it does when connecting the adapter directly.

OpenSUSE Network :: No Network Devices Recognized On New Install

Feb 24, 2011

Just installed 11.3 kde. When running the live cd both wireless and ethernet devices appeared in the network connections manager utility. I even connected to a wireless AP.I just booted up for the first time and none of these devices are available. There is no network manager icon in the system tray, and when the network manager utility is maually opened the only connection type i can select is vpn.I know that opensuse should be able to recognize these devices since they were available and working via the live cd, so can anyone help me restore them?

One extra piece of info, is that I am sharing a home directory with a gnome ubuntu install. there were a few minor issues i dealt with initially, but i didnt need to change this user's UID like I have had to do in the past so that's good. Each time i open a terminal I get two pieces of output assuming from the bash startup saying something like.URL...I highly doubt that these problems are related, but figured I'd post. Also if someone knows the solution to that as well, that would save me a bit of googling.

OpenSUSE Network :: Host Not Recognized On Network

Mar 16, 2011

I have just loaded Suse 11.4 and have had (2) problems, 1st: When I installed some additional programs, such as, Scribus, the system showed them as installed but they did not show up in the "applications" menu any where. I finally tracked them down and edited them in and they work fine - Why aren't they being automatically placed into the menu system? 2nd: I have a home network setup and all systems can see and work with each other, however, the host system is not shown as if it did not exist at all. for example; if I go to "network services" and select "Samba Shares" if other computers are connected it will show them but not the host - if no other computers are connected it shows nothing. On my 11.3 system it shows the host eg; "Linux-12fx blah blah" this is of course my host machine. I have replicated all of my settings on the 11.3 settings on my 11.4 system - no luck!

OpenSUSE Network :: Keep WiFi Internet While A PC-to-PC Ethernet Network Is Active?

Jan 31, 2011

I often use an Ethernet cable to connect my computer to another computer for various purposes. But when I do that, I cannot use the internet even though I'm still connected to a WiFi access point. I'm presuming that's because openSUSE is trying to reach the internet through the Ethernet cable, which has precedence over WiFi.Is there a way to enable internet usage via WiFi while I'm connected to another computer over Ethernet?

OpenSUSE Network :: Proxy I Set Is Not Being Used Or Recognized By Some Apps

Jul 6, 2011

The proxy I set is not being used or recognized by some apps. For instance dropbox would be able to detect the proxy settings i set using yast>network>proxy while firefox would not recognize it. In firefox i tried using the automatic proxy and using the system proxy. Either of the two won't detect it. However, when I manually set it in firefox's preference it would work. For empathy the proxy is not recognized as well. In addition, can I set the proxy in the empathy app itself? I could not locate it. Also the online updates and repository checks recognizes the proxy I set up.

By the way I am using GNOME 3 as my DE. I would also like to share that when I use the network settings > proxy of gnome 3 none of the apps recognize the proxy.

Hardware :: SDL Joystick Event From N64 Controller Adapter Not Recognized

May 1, 2011

I'm using a "HuiJia USB Gamepad" to connect a standard N64 controller to my computer over USB. I'm doing this so that I can play games using mupen64plus, which uses the SDL to get input. My problem has to do with the way the adapter deals with C button events. Apparently, the u/d and l/r C buttons are treated by the adapter as joystick axes, so joystick events are generated by using them. But, for some reason, these events aren't recognized by SDL.

It gets stranger - if I cat the output of /dev/input/event5, the event gets printed when a C button is pressed. Furthermore, when I configure SDL to use the /dev/input/event* devices rather than /dev/input/js0, the C buttons are recognized! (Though, this leads to a situation where the joystick can't be calibrated... go figure). So, I can either have a correctly calibrated joystick with no C buttons or a miscalibrated joystick with working C buttons. Does anyone have any idea what I can do about this situation? The best outcome would be to force the C button joystick events to appear when using /dev/input/js0. Device as it appears in the output of lsusb:

OpenSUSE Network :: Wireless Usb Adapter Freezing Computer WUSB54GCv3

Feb 1, 2010

Let me start by saying that with the previous kernel when I opened network configuration, it didnt even recognize my card when i'd go to modules. After I updated to it didnt recognize it until I installed the ralink-firmware After that I could configure it using rt2870sta setting in modules. But once I restarted it would freeze after a few seconds after I could see the desktop on startup. I reconfigured the card to be 'manually' powered, but now it just freezes when I click on the access point I want to connect to. When it freezes the caps lock and scroll lock start blinking and the only way to turn off is holding the power

i used my desktop (win***)with DSL connection and installed the driver of the usb net adapter.. made it as the access point. . so my laptop detects the desktop as wifi spot.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sitecom WL-364 WUSB Not Recognized As Wireless Adapter?

Jul 16, 2011

I bought myself a Sitecom Wireless Network USB Micro Adapter 300N X3 (Sitecom WL-364) today. When I place the adapter in my PC, it is not recognised as a wireless adapter.

There are similar posts like this one, most of them are about conflicting drivers. According to this post I shouldn't be worried about that (as I'm working in 11.04 32-bit).

The output of lsusb is this:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0df6:0051 Sitecom Europe B.V.

Also, I was having a hard time getting to know the chipset of the adapter. Is RT2870 the right driver for the adapter?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Belkin USB Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Not Recognized?

Aug 12, 2010

I have spent them with Fedora and liked it a lot. Today I decided to install CentOS as this looks like something I would like to be using in the future. However a problem I could not solve came right at me after the first boot.

I have one eth0 device which is onboard lan and that was correctly recognised and activated. The second device is F5D5055 Belking USB Gigabit ethernet adapter. There was no problem with it whatsoever under Fedora. According to all the info it should be automatically recognised on kernel 2.6.14 and later. However when I plug it into the USB port, I can see its correct name in the device manager but it is not recognised as a network device. I have configured my Fedora as a firewall/router for my lan and definitely want to use that interface.

Hopefully without needing to do anything in the realm of compiling kernel, cause that is where my half a day long attempt to fix the problem left me.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Can't Access Wep Encrypted Network With Linksys Wusb11 Ver 2.6 Net Adapter

Aug 9, 2011

I have installed Suse 11.4 from the Gnome liveCD, and I "can" access my home network when it is unsecured, however, I can't access it when WEP is turned on. Now, I know that WEP is insecure but there are devices on the network that only supports WEP so the router settings can't be changed. Also just for testing purposes i have tried the WPA2 encryption method to no avail (dmesg reports that the connection timed out). The only encryption method that looks promising is the open-wep encryption. When trying to connect to the network (with open-wep turned on) I have performed a bit of checking to see what is going on, now I don't know much about in-depth linux and stuff but, below are the outputs from lsusb, dmesg, iwconfig, and ifconfig.

Debian :: Best PCI Or USB Wifi Adapter To Use?

Jan 7, 2011

I have another thread started [URL] asking for support on configuring a Netopia TER/GUSB-N USB Wireless Adapter. But, I figured it would be interesting to get some opinions about other wireless adapters. I don't mind shopping on eBay for a new adapter or purchasing one at Walmart or BestBuy. So basically, I wanted to find out which wireless adapters are guaranteed to work out of the box after installing Debian. I am setting up webcam servers throughout my house and want to use the same hardware as much as possible. So if anyone has any recommendations on a wireless adapter that is proven to work and work well, please let me know.

Here are three that I can get pretty cheap at Walmart: Belkin N150 Enhanced Wireless USB Network AdapterNetgear WG111 Wireless-G 54Mbps USB 2.0 AdapterCisco - Valet Connector (Wireless N USB Adapter) AM10-4A
