OpenSUSE Wireless :: LiveUSB Cannot Connect To Non-broadcast SSID Wireless Network

Sep 30, 2010

I've got openSUSE 11.3 running via liveUSB on a netbook and no matter how many times I try, I cannot get wireless to connect to my network.

My network is:

- non-broadcast
- WPA2 Personal
- G

The netbook is fairly recent from Asus and wireless works perfectly with Fedora 11 and Windows XP.

Fedora Networking :: SSID Broadcast Disabled - Cannot Connect To Wireless Network

May 6, 2010

I have just installed FC12 on my machine - and gone Windows free for the first time ever. Now I do use various flavours of Linux on a daily basis but not from an installation/sys admin point of view so my questions here may seem a little basic but pleas eindulge me if you will!

Now, my network connection works perfectly well under the following scenarios.

1) FC12, wired to router
2) FC12, wireless, SSID broadcast enabled
3) Ubuntu (laptop), wireless, SSID broadcast DISABLED

The only scenario that does not work is FC12, wireless with SSID broadcast disabled.

I can only assume that it is an issue with my USB modem (a linksys WUSB54GS) since the same set-up works fine from my laptop running Ubuntu with an internal wireless card.

Now, I know from reading the forums that it's pretty easy to get around a disabled SSID broadcast but this is an itch I just have to scratch....what the hell is causing this problem?

nm-tool ouput is as follows:

I have tried using wpa_supplicant but I am not sure which driver I am using here - is it ndiswrapper per chance?

(Driver: rndis_wlan)

How I can connect once again to my wireless router with SSID broadcast turned off.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Cannot Connect To A Hidden SSID

Nov 13, 2009

Installed 11.2 last night with KDE4. Using "Connect to other network" I could see all the private networks around, including my own.

Mine has an hidden SSID and WPA2-PSK security. Regardless of what I tried I couldn't connect. Both BSSID and password are correct (but there was no other choice than "WPA/WPA2 personal" under security).

So I go to work today and connect to an unsecure network with a visible SSID (and a lower signal quality) without any problems.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wirelesscard Lights Up - Can See SSID But Still Does Not Connect ?

Jul 2, 2010

I have a supported BCM4318 "EDUP" wireless card. I am very, very new to opensuse, 2 days old to be exact. However I can read, so I followed the instructions listed in the "Getting Your Wireless to Work" with no avail. It is really weird. I am using the network manager. When I right click on the tiny blue wireless bar down below I see both my network and my neighbors. I click on mine and it asks for my WEP key, I enter it and when I mouse over the icon it sayS that it is obtaining network address. If I click on it at this point it says activating. Then it says waiting for authorization. I have used the fwcutter to download the latest firmware. I have even used ndiswrapper to install from the Edup driver cd. No good! The other thing is, that I am running Ubuntu 9 on the same machine on the same network with the same card and it works.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Ifup And Network Manager Are Not Using Defined Ssid?

Feb 19, 2011

I just installed OpenSuSE 11.3 on an old IBM T20 I had kicking around and I'm using a Proxim Wireless PCMCIA Card (Atheros AR5001X). Since this laptop does not have a DVD drive I installed the system using the Netboot CD and have the SuSE 11.3 ISO on an NFS/SAMBA file server. The issues appeared after the first reboot, the adapter no longer worked. I resorted to using the wired interface to finish the install.

Once the system was up followed the trouble shooting steps outlined in various places and found the ESSID is not being picked up by the ifup scripts. Not sure if it matters but I have ESSID broadcasts turned off on all my WAPs.

The ESSID is in ifcfg-wlan0. To get wireless working I have to manually issue iwconfig wlan0 essid "xxxx"..

Both networkmanager and ifup fail..

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Connect Ipod Touch To A Wireless Ad-hoc Network Of Laptop?

Apr 13, 2010

On Opensuse 11.2, I would like to connect my ipod touch to a wireless ad-hoc network of my laptop. I have no wireless WIFI-router at home, so I have to use the laptop as a router to the internet. I know I have to enter a static IP adres and my router's address, but where ? I haven't found any place under network tools to do this, only saw some fields with SSID's and MAC addresses to fill in.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel 3945abg Wireless Network Card Cannot Connect To Router Automatically

Apr 8, 2010

I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: After Hibernate Or Sleep Can't Connect To Any Wireless Network?

Nov 5, 2010

I'm moving from other distros. and I'm currently loving openSUSE and I'm probably going to stick with it for a long time.I have already googled for this, but I found no solution, but I figured this should be a common problem... Does google searches inside this forum?Now... for my problem, whenever I hibernate (suspend to disk) or sleep (suspend to ram) I can't resume my wireless connection nor connect to another.I don't know if this is an issue if I use cables, because I simply don't with my netbook:The hardware in question is an ASUS 1005HA eee pc, running openSUSE version is 11.3 fully updated. Didn't mess with wireless connections, nor kernel or hibernate settings

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Connect To Wireless Network Before KDE Loads Up

Apr 11, 2010

One of the biggest issues i have at the moment is that my network based plasmoids on my KDE desktop load before my wireless network connection is established, so i'm thinking it would be best to start up the wireless connection at boot time. On previous distro's, I did this with netcfg but I can't seem to figure out how to do so in OpenSUSE 11.2. Is this the best way to manage this issue or is it possible to set a delay before the plasmoids load up?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Fix For Knetworkmanagers Hidden SSID?

Mar 26, 2011

Summary of issue: You cannot connect to a wireless network with a hidden ssid, while using knetworkmanager.This leaves you with the choice of using ifup, yast which uses ifup but provides a gui for new users, etc. But thanks to glistwan helpful post there is a simple way to fix this issue, while continuing to use knetworkmanager.Step 1 Get the wireless name of the hidden network, for example we will be looking for "Tree".Tree is not on the list of courseStep 2 Open the Terminal and enter super user mode.

OpenSUSE :: The KDE Network Monitor Requires 3 Reboots Before Being Able To Connect To Wireless Network

Mar 10, 2011

After installing 11.4, I need to type in the command to update the firmware for a broadcom wifi adapter. Then I needed to reboot, twice, before the system knew to use the adapter (where the adapter wifi light goes from orange to blue).

Then I needed to add my wireless network and type in my key. But the key does not take. If I click on my wireless network icon, it just re-asks for the key and does not connect nor give any other message. Network icon continues to display no connection.

So I need to reboot again.

When the system starts again, the adapter is blue, I click on the icon for my wifi network and it connects without asking for my key and I can then set to start my wifi by default.

Now my wifi works fine.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless With Inspiron 1501 Bcm4311 Rev01 / Trying To Connect To A Hidden Wireless Network?

May 5, 2009

I am having a little trouble connecting to my wireless network. Running Fedora 10 32 bit.I'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network. I updated the firmware for my driver but apparantly the driver is still not working. Broadcom has a driver from their website for Linux 32 bit systems. Should I attempt to install it? I read a post where the driver is built into the system kernel. If so I would need to blacklist the one of the drivers. Correct?

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Connect Through Wireless!

Mar 27, 2009

I just installed OpenSuse 11.1 on a netbook via network install. It's a dual boot with windows XP. In XP, the wireless card works perfectly, but in openSuse, it never connects. It cann see the wireless networks available but it won't connect to my network!

I even tried this to no avail: Wireless will not work when dual-boot with Windows XP&Vista | SUSE & openSUSE

I'm using:

Asus EEE 1002 HA
Wireless Card: Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter
WPA2 (although when I switched the router to WPA, it still didn't work)

The weird thing is during install I told it to test the wireless card and it worked, but now it doesn't.

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Connect To Wireless Network / Resolve This?

May 24, 2011

I just installed opensuse 11.4 and i'm not being able to connect to my wireless lan. It recognizes my network, but when I click "ok" after typing the password it is like I had done nothing, no connection is set at all.I guess it is probably some configuration stuff since my notebook recognizes all available wireless networks. Sorry about the lack of details, but that is all I got.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Network Detected But Will Not Connect?

Feb 16, 2010

I have a D-link dir-635 firmware v. 2.30eu (latest) and a USB WLAN adapter D-link DWA-140 802.11n. The driver seems to be installed correctly since lsusb lists it correctly and all the wireless networks in the vicinity are detected including mine. When I try to connect however NetworkManager says it is activating but after awhile the windows with the newtork password appers. dmesg output:

[ 5509.487262] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 1
[ 5509.684014] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 2
[ 5509.884020] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 3
[ 5510.084014] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 timed out

So it is able to determine the AP:s mac address but each time it times out.

I have tried disabling the security on the router but no luck.

Not sure what to try next. I have checked some of the tips supplied in these forums but none seem to handle the issue I am having.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: 11.3 32-bit: Can't Connect To Home Network

Jul 19, 2010

While my wireless is generally working, there's one problem: I can't connect to my home network through it on my laptop. My desktop (which has an Atheros-based wireless card and is configured through ifup) connects just fine, as does another family member's laptop (also with an Atheros chip, but using NetworkManager) My laptop (With an Intel Centrino wireless chip), however, will not connect to the home router, though it can connect to public (unprotected) access points such as the one at my school. My home network is a private (hidden) network and also requires a WEP key to connect to and, as mentioned, works fine with several other systems running 11.3. I've attempted to use both ifup and NetworkManager and can't connect using either method. With ifup, the connection attempt just seems to time out during the connection attempt, while with NetworkManager, it doesn't even seem to try: I select the connection that I defined and click "Connect" and nothing happens after that. I'm using KDE and installed from the LiveCD

OpenSUSE Wireless :: 11.2 - Cannot Connect To Network Through GUI Net Manager

Sep 28, 2010

I am using an HP laptop dv8000 series FYI. I started with a fresh install of OS11.2. The first thing I tried was to connect to a network through the gui net manager. This got me nowhere (nothing detected). I then noted that the card was not getting any signal/not functioning. My card is enabled from on the laptop.

I connected my laptop via ethernet and executed this command:
Code:
sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware
which returned no errors and seems to have completed successfully.

Using the dmesg | grep firmware command I now get the following:
Code:
SuSE-Laptop:~ # dmesg | grep firmware
[41.246079] b43 ssb0:0: firmware: requesting b43/ucode5.fw
[41.268643] b43 ssb0:0: firmware: requesting b43/pcm5.fw
[41.320790] b43 ssb0:0: firmware: requesting b43/b0g0initvals5.fw

[41.591065] b43-phy0: Loading firmware version 410.2160 (2007-05-26 15:32:10)

Now the option to enable wireless in my systray (I know wrong name) has become unselectable. Now what do I do?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Could Not Connect With Network Manager

Oct 5, 2010

I recently installed 11.3, I was able to get my wireless working. However only using the "traditional method with ifup", I could not connect with network manager. I remembered last time I installed 11.2, it was suggested that the wired connection was taking precedence, which was the initial reason I went the traditional route. I changed the wired connection to "on cable connection" and the wireless to "boot time" but still no luck. So are both methods fine and its just a matter of preference, I would prefer to use knetwork manager.
