OpenSUSE Network :: Wireless Is Not Connecting - Unable To Play Mp3 Songs
Jun 17, 2010
I am regular user of windows, but one week ago I installed ubuntu, it was very cool and then I installed opensuse yesterday because I like its kde desktop. But i have problem with wireless, i can see my home wifi, but it doesnt connect. I have same problem in ubuntu, but it was solved when i change passphrase to 40/128 bt from 128 bt, but in opensuse, all i can see is 128 bt or 64/128 ascii. Also I m unable to play mp3 songs in opensuse.
I'm having some trouble connecting to the wireless network here at home. The PC has a Linksys WMP600N wireless network card, which works fine under several versions of Windows. In Opensuse however, I cannot get it to find the network. Even though my laptop is right next to it, which has perfect connection to the network. The router is a Linksys WRT610N.
I've tried running iwconfig and iwlist scan in the terminal, but the scan returns no results and iwconfig indicates it does not have a connection to a network. I've turned off IPv6 as I read this can sometimes cause issues. I've also tried issuing the computer a static IP address, figuring the DHCP might be causing problems, but all to no avail.
since a few weeks I have a problem connecting to other hosts when I'm using another wireless network, which has a different DNS IP than I have in my network. I have to change /etc/resolv.conf to change the nameserver. Can NetworkManager control the nameserver? If yes, how?
I'm running OpenSUSE 11.2. My sound has an issue, it must be played through PulseAudio. Phonon or whatever the default is kept dropping the ball, so I made PulseAudio the default sound server by doing:
setup-pulseaudio --enable So now, I get something as opposed to nothing. But Amarok still wasn't playing my songs, even after telling it to prefer PulseAudio for all outputs under Settings>Configure Amarok>Playback>Configure. I hit "Test" and the sound played. But it wouldn't play any songs from my music library. So I navigated there in Dolphin, found a song, right-clicked, and decided to Open With every audio program associated with it. Banshee and Mplayer worked. Kaffiene, Totem, and Amarok did not (though I could see that Amarok at least queued it up). What gives?
I just bought a new USB wireless adapter for my openSUSE 11.3 laptop, a TP-Link TP-WN727N. I can't get the new card to connect to my home wireless network, which is named WRT320N in the screenshot. KDE prompts for the key repeatedly but never connects successfully. Part of the problem might stem from the fact that this laptop now has 2 wireless cards: one build into chipset (PRO/Wireless 3945ABG) and the new USB card. Both show up in knetworkmanager but no clear distinction is made between them visually. Strangely my wireless network shows up twice in knetworkmanager as in the screenshot. Once per wireless card? As my wireless network is N-only I don't see why it would do this.
Just moved over to openSUSE 11.4 (KDE) from Ubuntu, yesterday. However, I'm having some trouble with my wireless connection.
I have a wireless network with a hidden SSID and WPA2-PSK security. I entered all the nescery information into the KDE network manager, but it couldn't find my network. So I ran the usual command:
Code: su -c iwlist wlan0 scanning essid [My SSID]
At which point, the network manager immediately found, and connected to, the network. However, it seems that I have to run this command (as root) each time I log in, before my laptop will connect to the network. The network manager has no problem find the plethora of unsecured networks as well as those that are secure, but broadcast their SSID.
I've spent 29 hours trying to figure this out. And I'm about to blow my brains out. Fresh install 11.2. - 64bit but tried 32 bit and same thing. Dell studio 1734. Broadcom wireless and wired. Installed broadcom drivers (b43) through yast. Wired eth0 works. Wireless eth1 works. Surf with Firefox fine. BUT. Kmail will not connect through wireless. Nor can I access repositories through wireless.
Tried blacklisting B43 in ssb no change. What in the hell is going on? I've searched forum after forum and tried everything and CANNOT make this happen.
I've just installed openSUSE 11.3 for the first time on a Dell E1505 notebook and am having problems connecting to my home wireless network. Using the Network Manager I've been able to find my home network and connect after entering the network password. After a minute or two the wireless network is still shown as active but their is no connection (websites will not load).
I'm completely new to Linux so I have almost no clue what could be causing this. I have tried connecting the notebook hardwired (Ethernet) to the router and get a perfect connection if that information helps any.

4 ) what you have tried to rectify the problem.
Tried to install all the patches.
5 ) any trouble-shooting guide you have tried to follow. - The previous two stickies
6 ) openSUSE version 11.3
7 ) type /sbin/lspci -v" in a terminal; copy and paste the section that identifies your wireless card and it's chipset. 07:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and everything works fine except wi-fi card, of course. The problem is that after installation the system recognized the card (is was listed in network devices in Yast) but I was unable to enable it through network-manager applet. Though the device could make scanning through terminal (found article in docs but didn't fully understand wpa_gui). Then i was stupid enough to delete the device from Yast list to try to reinstall it. So the problem is that i simply can't do this cause i see no way to re-detect. That is the goal is to at least turn back to post-install system state and try to enable wifi card again.
I am using OpenSuse 11.3 and Network Manager is giving me a headache by not connecting to WEP based wi-fi network.It works in a wi-fi at my office while at my home, it shows / detects the network but keeps asking me over and over.
I'm using OpenSUSE 11.3 64-bit on a Lenovo G560. I'm able to establish both wired and unwired connections without problems. Now I'm in a situation where I'd like to share my laptop's internet connection with other devices. My thought was to establish an ad-hoc network that another computer could connect to wirelessly in order to get into the Internet, because I've only got one ethernet jack.
First thought was to use Network Manager, since that manages all my connections. A left click on the Network Manager icon brings up a menu in which "Wireless 802.11, Create network connection..." is an option. If I click on that I see a list of all the networks available in the area, as well as all the networks I've set up in the past. Below that are two options: "New Ad-Hoc Network" and "Connect To Other Network With Wireless 802.11..."
"New Ad-Hoc Network" seems like the right option, but when I double click on it the window closes and nothing happens. No error message, nothing. Network Manager continues to run and my connection is unchanged. If I just left click on it and then click "Connect" at the bottom of the window, the same thing happens.
I finally installed openSUSE along side ubuntu and xp in my ThinkPad EDGENow I am facing issue with toggling the wi-fi, I had no such problem in ubuntu.Seems like there is some issue in the thinkpad-acpi module.I use fn+F9 to toggle the wifi, which toggles both bluetooh and wifi, but on openSUSE it only toggles bluetooth.acpi_listen in ubuntu gives me the below result when I press fn+F9ibm/hotkey HKEY 00000080 00001005but in openSUSE its blank but bluetooth gets toggled. dmesg from ubuntu:
I have just installed openSUSE 11.3 and was enjoying...untill i cam to know that I could not play songs/ videos..What to do now with Amarok or any other application? they are telling me that mp3 support is not installed do you want to install it ?
I'm unable to get into my university's WLAN network. LAN works just fine, but sometimes it's quite convenient to be able to access stuff wirelessly. It doesn't seem to be a hardware problem, because if I configure my computer according to our computer department's instructions it works fine with Ubuntu (currently I carry around a stick to get into the Internet when I really need it and don't have a cable). Some info:
My device: Broadcom WLAN controller on a Lenovo G560
My system: OpenSUSE 11.3 64-bit
The drivers are installed, I can get into normal private networks, but have never managed to get into the university network except for with Ubuntu.
The university instructions tell me to use the following settings: Security: WPA Enterprise Authentification: TTLS Inner Authentification: PAP Username: My username Password: Password CA Certificate: Deutsche_Telekom_Root_CA_2.pem In the KDE instructions, they tell you to write "anonymous" into the anonymous identity field, but in the GNOME instructions it says to leave it blank. In Ubuntu, I leave it blank and it works.
I've got the recommended settings, which also work in GNOME.
I'd ask the tech support here, but I am the tech support We've got it working with other systems, like I said, but not with SUSE, and I'm a SUSE fan.
I think I've read every post here about the Broadcom and connection.I thought I tried everything.Turns out (read Chapter�35.�Using NetworkManager) using Connection Manager (K Network Manager) you can not use, what I wanted to use, 'all users, use connection' or said another way, the wifi would be activated and connected Before the user 'logs in'. Well, as I said, it turns out that if you are using gnome, this will work with NetMgr, but NOT in KDE. If you want to use 'system connect' then you have to use 'traditional' if in YaST2. Oh well, at least 'i'm' connected.... (i'm the only user, so not a big deal right now, but would like to get it working...)
im brand new to kubuntu and ived never used amarok before and its kinda confusing me. i have all my songs imported and they all show up, but they wont play. double clicking them doesnt do anything, though at the bottom right of the amarok window it says "now playing [song title]". ive gotten a few songs to play but not most of them.
I recently installed Ubunut 9.10, and I plugged my Ipod 5g nano in, and Rythmbox detected the music and played everything. When I was done, I unplugged everything. Okay, so I did this iver a few days, but everynow and then, Ubuntu would freeze when my ipod was plugged in. Now when I unplug my ipod, it dosent detect any songs. But when I plug it into any computer (mac, windows, linux, etc.) itdetects the music and i can play it. But when unplugged, my ipod says no music is detected.
My friend and I have a problem. We both wish to listen to songs at the same time. But the problem is that our choices of songs are different. So, I suggested that he listen to his favorite song on the speakers whilst I listen to my favorite song via headphones.
But, whenever we do try this idea the speakers won't play when I plug in the headphones.
Anyway so we can make both speakers and headphones play different songs at once?
I am having some trouble getting my computer to connect to my wireless network. There is a wireless icon in the system tray. When I click on the icon I get a list of SSIDs associated with available wireless networks. To connect to one of of those networks I move the cursor over the SSID, the SSID is then highlighted, I select the highlighted SSID, then my computer connects to the selected network.
Sometimes the SSID associated wth my wireless network does not show up on the list. Sometimes it does. Normally the SSIDs on the list are in bold lettering. When the SSID of my network does appear it is in shaded lettering. When I move the cursor over the SSID it is not highlighted and I cannot select it. So you see it is not possible for me to select the SSID of my network and connect to my network.
The computer I am running is a ThinkPad R40. This is the wireless controller on the computer. I got this with "lspci". 02:02.0 Network controller: AIRONET Wireless Communications Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b
I installed F13 on an Acer laptop for a friend who is just beginning with Linux. This laptop has the dreaded Broadcom chipset and is using the b43 driver. When it was first installed, wireless was automatically detected and worked fine. However, as usual, there was about 200MB of updates after the install, and the wireless was downloading extremely slowly, so I connected eth0 just to complete the updates. Ever since, the wireless will not work. When the machine is booted, wireless is shown as disabled in Network Manager. I remembered that there was a wireless switch on the front of the laptop and switching it on allows me to check the enable wireless box, but wireless says device not ready.
ifconfig wlan0 up returns:
SIOCSFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill
I assumed this meant that the switch was in OFF position, but it is not. iwconfig shows the wireless is detected. It appears that there is a script for rf_kill somewhere in the filesystem that is keeping this from working.
i hate the whole 1 click adds to playlist and another click plays the song. i like the way it works on windows. how do i make it so i double click a song it automatically shows in rhythmbox and plays it.otherwise i double click a song and i get some other song playing.
I'm stuck with the problem of amarok refusing to play songs that have any non-ascii characters in the metadata, which is about 1/3 of my collection.A solution to that problem would be ideal, but if there is a good alternative (like amarok 1.x series) I would probably switch.
