OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless On Compaq Presario R3000 Doesn't Work

Nov 8, 2010

Sorry for repeating the same old complaint but there doesn't seem to be a common fix: Wireless does not work on my Presario R3000 although SUSE 11.x lists the hardware in the Hardware Information list and the hardware is turned on. Network Manager doesn't display any wireless networks in SUSE while Win 7 can see 4 of them on the same machine. Ubuntu has no problem either

OpenSUSE Wireless :: RTL8191SE Driver On Compaq Presario CQ62 Doesn't Work With XP Driver

Oct 23, 2010

No wireless networking. The ethernet works fine, and the wireless interface itself works well in Windows 7 (dual boot). Tried: Ndiswrapper, notoriously quirky, does not seem to work with the XP driver (the oldest driver available for the RTL8191SE). The linux driver offered on the manufacturer's website lacks any installation instructions. I have no clue how to install a linux driver. SUSE seems to have two network managers that are constantly complaining about control: Network Manager and Yast. Neither are great and I am left missing my Ubuntu.

However, my audio only seems to work on SUSE. I have tried almost every distro on this machine. Ubuntu lacked sound and wireless, Fedora played startup sounds, but would not play an mp3 or wav file (fiddling with the mixer did not help). And Fedora also lacked wireless support. PCLinuxOS, my favorite, lacked sound and wireless. Tried some oldies too. ELE, DSL, Puppy, Ubuntu Netbook remix, Vector, Browserpuppy, Crunchbang, Cruncheee (just for experimental sakes) and probably others I am not remembering. So far, installing a free linux distro has cost me 14 dvd-R's and countless hours of installing, reformatting and reinstalling. Part of me really wanted crunchbang to work, as I love the minimalism and blacked-out theme.

I need wireless network access. The wireless light remains red in Linux and pressing the key does nothing to start the device. In Windows 7 it always lights white and works perfectly. Why hasn't SUSE adopted a gui for ndiswrapper? Other distros have it. Why is my brand new laptop, which is by no means abnormal in make or configuration, not 100% supported natively by any Linux distro? I just updated to the new kernel yesterday. So I should be running the most modern operating system available. Yet good-ol Windows 7 is my only fully functional environment.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working For Compaq Presario

Apr 29, 2011

I just finished putting openSUSE 11.4 on my Compaq Presario V5000. I have been trying for hours to find the answer of how to get my wireless card to work. I can't connect to my router wirelessly and the on/off button for the wireless mode does not light up when pressed.

As far as I can tell from what I have already tried, I have a broadcoamm wireless card. It is a bm4318. I have b43-fwcutter installed and I have tried updating my firmware through the terminal. I have also used 'sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware'. It appeared successful, but the laptop still cannot make a wireless connection.

Fedora Networking :: Compaq Presario C700 Wireless - Cannot Connect To The Internet

Mar 17, 2010

I installed Fedora 12 on my Compaq Presario c700 Notebook recently and had a great install. I installed ndiswrapper and installed the inf file for my broadcom 4311 driver through ndiswrapper as well. The installation of the driver appeared to go smoothly.

The only thing is that I still cannot connect to the internet. I aliased the driver as well to wlan0. I can not figure out what is currently the problem. I tried reinstalling the driver and I keep receive a message stating the driver is already installed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Compaq Mini 700EL Wireless Doesn't Work?

Jun 13, 2010

I just installer Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Compaq Mini 700EL, the ubuntu website says that everything works very well including the wireless. But for some reason the list of connection doesn't appear at all. It just says "device not ready" This is driving me a little nuts. It appears that the Broadcom drivers are installed. I typed lspci on the terminal and it says that the computer loads a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)

I also downloaded the drivers even though they should be already in it. But I'm not sure.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Light Constantly Blinking On Compaq Presario CQ60 Laptop

May 13, 2010

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop and have one of those wireless light indicators. For me the light glows orange when the wireless is OFF and blue when the wireless is ON. In Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) the light was always orange, even if the Wireless was on, but my wireless worked right out of the box so I was grateful for that, but since upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) I've noticed that my wireless light alternates between orange and blue frequently and sometimes flashes madly when wireless activity is occurring.

I was wondering if there is a fix for this as it can get quite annoying, the light sometimes stays blue for a while but will ultimately keep going back to orange and vice-versa, my friend who also has a Compaq Presario CQ61 (Revised model of mine) has his wireless light constantly blinking orange and blue no matter what.The wireless itself works fine, I can connect to any wireless connection and use it without having to install anything else, so it does work out of the box, which again, I'm grateful for.The wireless adapter is a Atheros AR5001 Wireless network adapter. Do I need to install additional packages or drivers to get the wireless adapter to work properly?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working Compaq 6910p Intel 4965 AG Or AGN?

Feb 17, 2011

I am running openSUSE 11.3 updated with all the latest patches and I cannot connect to my wireless router. I am running Linux Mint 10 on the same type of notebook HP Compaq 6910p and it worked right after the install. If I take off the security WPA & WPA2 Personal I can connect. lspci -v | less shows this for my wireless card.

10:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1000
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 29
Memory at e4000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]

[code]....

I am using the same settings for both notebooks just can't figure out why openSUSE 11.3 won't connect. I get the prompt to key in my password, I've even checked the box to show password to make sure I was keying it in correctly. Everything was good but it just goes right back to the password prompt after it fails trying to connect.

Ubuntu :: Installing RAM In Compaq R3000?

Feb 14, 2010

I'm trying to install a 1GB RAM stick into my laptop. The laptop comes with a 2x256MB setup. Only one of the sticks is physically accessible. So the maximum memory in the specs is 1.25GB. The stick is PC2700, same as the old stick. I am sure it is installed correctly. I took all static precautions. The BIOS recognizes the RAM - 1.25GB total. But Ubuntu just won't. I've got both 9.10 x64 and 9.04 x32 installed. Neither will boot. Memtest only shows the 768k of base RAM, and NONE of the extended RAM shows up - not even the initial 256MB.

I tried turning on boot logging, but the /var/logs/boot was still empty. When I turn off the splash screen, I see a whole mess of errors, which basically stem from the fact that there is no extended memory. What the hell is happening? This is the second RAM stick I've tried, so I'm pretty sure that's not the problem. I only have two days to decide whether to return it!

Fedora Networking :: Doesn't Work After Turned Off Wireless By Pressing A Wireless Button On Laptop?

Everything worked perfectly fine, networking included, until my friend didn't accidently turned off the wireless by pressing a wireless button on the laptop. Since then the wireless on Fedora doesn't work. It does on Windows thought. I've tried restarting the laptop few times, but the wireless still doesn't want to work again.

Hardware :: Installing Memory In Compaq R3000 Laptop ?

Jan 9, 2010

I installed a 1GB PC2700 SODIMM in my Compaq R3000 Athlon 64 laptop.

I am currently running Mint 7 (32 bit), 2.6.28-11-generic.

I removed one of my two 256MB sticks and installed the new 1GB stick.

When I installed the memory, the BIOS was able to recognize it, saying I had 1.25 GB of memory.

However, Linux refused to boot.

When I did a Memtest, I got nothing - it scanned the 768k of system memory in a fraction of a second, and then rebooted. It couldn't see either my new 1GB stick or my old 256MB stick.

Did I install the wrong type of RAM? Was the stick invalid?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wifi Doesn't Work / Resolve This?

Jul 17, 2010

I installed openSUSE 11.3 under 2 machines, one of them using a Linksys USB wireless N adapter (rt73usb) and another using an Atheros AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (ath5k). I have a Belkin f5D8236-4 router, with the SSID "linksys". I also have an Ubuntu 10.04 machine which has working wireless internet. I know almost nothing about networking, but from what I can tell, openSUSE 11.3 seems to have trouble with DHCP, specifically setting the dynamic IP address. To try to go about fixing this, I attempted to set a static IP, but I am quite confused by all the settings.

I have tried both the graphical "Network Manager" (KDE, Gnome, and command line versions) and ifup, both with no luck.

Here is the information from the working Ubuntu machine code...

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wifi Doesn't Send Key / Get It To Work?

Oct 24, 2010

Last week used lxde11.3 and no problem connecting. Today I switched to xfce11.3
and the wifi card is registering fine as connected but it doesn't send the key out
apparently to register the connection to the modem so it is fully activated.

I think lxde had a network manager but in xfce here I'm using Yast. What mismatch
do I have here ? How do I start a network manager so the key will connect ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting After 10.10 On Compaq R3000 32bit- Dmesg Attached?

Feb 24, 2011

It started when I tried to install Kubuntu 10.10. It booted OK from the CD, but after I installed it, it wouldn't boot. It would hang showing "floppy: no floppy found". I think the next part is either initializing swap or disks. No matter what, I couldn't it to boot.

So, I installed with Xubuntu. it worked great, and booted fine a few times. Worked a couple days.

But just today, after updating to the new kernel, it won't boot at all. It gets stuck at the same place!

It does this even if I go back to the old kernel on the boot list.

When I boot into recovery mode, SOMETIMES it will boot. Actually, just once. All other times, it failed to boot even in recovery. I attached the dmesg from one of these boots.

I booted into a puppy partition, and fsck -f my other partitions. It reported no problems.

Could it be a hard drive problem? I don't hear anything from the drive, but it's getting old and I was planning on replacing it soon anyhow.

My computer is a Compaq R3000 AMD64, but I'm running the 32 bit OS.
