OpenSUSE Wireless :: How To Disable Usage Of Wlan0 For Knetworkmanager?
Jan 25, 2010
I have two usb wlan cards. In 11.2 whenever i start connection with the second one (wlan1) via knetworkmanager, the latter also starts a connection using the first one , leading to wlan problems,
In 11.1 i had no such problems because i could select the one to be used in knetworkmanager, and only that one was used by knetworkmanager.my current solution is to
this shuts down the first card but i have to do this manually after every restart. one thing: don't come with "deactivate in bios" - i knoe this but playing around in bios everytime i switch between windows and linux is no option. So how can i prohibit permanently that knetworkmanager uses the first one (wlan0)? putting in some place of suseconfigs a rmmod <driver>? where? /etc/sysconfig ??
on kde4 with knetworkmanager I cannot get past the wep security key on my home router. Every other wlan works, ethernet works, settings are definitely correct because it works with windows, other computers.And on the same computer even with gnome networkmanager! Also it used to work fine earlier. Behavior the same with different users including root, regardless of using kwallet or not. Networkamanager tries to connect and after one or two minutes throws the setting window back at me. I uninstalled and re-installed and deleted all related files I could think of. I even tried a complete fresh installation of opensuse only keeping the /home partition, so the problem must be lying there I guess. But then why all users?
PS opensuse 11.2 kde networkmanager 0.9.svn1043876-1.1.1
I accidentally powered down in the middle of a session by removing the wrong battery from my laptop (a Motion Computing tablet), and ever since that happened knetworkmanager crashes with a segmentation fault on startup. I have uninstalled it and then reinstalled it from an openSuse 11.4 DVD I made a few months ago, but it still crashes on startup. Ifup says it connects to the wifi (Wayport Access @ McDonalds) I have available, but browsers don't reach the internet while Ifup is connected, so I can't sign on and get access to anything more recent. Is there some file I ought to delete,or some other software I ought to delete and reinstall?
Since my update to OpenSuse 11.2 knetworkmanager refuses to connect to WEP enabled networks (worked fine with knetworkmanager 11.1). I am sure that I use the correct password and I tried on 3 different networks. The manager is connecting to open networks and WAP protected networks without problems. I saw on other forums that there were similar problems with previous versions of networkmanager. But I could not find a solution for my problem.
Even though I am not new to Suse, I am still very inexperienced, especially when it comes to wireless. I am running Suse Linux 11.3 and I am having problems connecting to my wireless. My network controller is a RaLink RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI (rev 01). I am recieving a signal from my wireless router, however when I try to connect to my ESSID via KnetworkManager It asks for a WEP key. After entering the key, Knetnetwork manager will try to connect for a minute or so and then it will ask for my WEP key again. It keeps repeating this cycle without ceasing. How to configure the WEP so that Knetwork manager will connect or a way around WEP.
I have built 11.2 on several laptops and knetwork manager startup for wireless is not consistent. I can't figure it out. Sometimes the options "Create Network Connection" and "enable wireless" are greyed out. Other times they are fine. What is the secret to getting the options to appear in my window tray all the time? I always select knetwork manager as the default when I do a clean build.
No improvement since I first reported this problem, I am hoping somebody can now advise. Using openSUSE11.3 Linux 188.8.131.52-0.5-default i686 with kde 4.4.4 release 3.Problem is the wait of sometimes over 2 minutes before the wifi connection is available.Two questions:- 1. Why does it take so long? Longer by far than it to be with previous openSUSE releases. Much longer than with that other OS!!!2. How do I remove the wallet process. Not needed in present environment so I would like direct connection without having to open wallet. I didn't set this up, it just happened after I had upgraded to 11.3 and I need to know how to disable it to save time.
I have an open WEP wireless internet connection with a security key. KNetworkManager can never obtain an IP address from my wireless router, but I know that the router works because Windows can connect correctly and Ubuntu's NetworkManager can connection correctly. Does anyone know what is happening? KNetworkManager just asks for my security again and again and again after it fails to connect.
I have to use ndiswrapper to get my wireless card to work (Cheap D-link usb wireless). I have never had a problem in ubuntu releases with getting it up and going, but in Fedora and now Opensuse I am struggling. I have everything setup with no errors. Ndiswrapper lists my drivers as installed and my hardware present. lsusb also has it listed. but when I modprobe ndiswrapper, I am getting no errors, but I am also not getting wlan0 to show when using iwconfig. I also noticed when modprobed the wireless card's light isn't coming on like ubuntu.
I've just a had laptop meltdown which resulted in the acquisition of a replacement (HP635) sporting a realtek wireless NIC. Found the drivers and installed them and all is well. HOWEVER, the card is not activated on wake from sleep mode. This is kind of astounding to me. Every crappy windows version that I've used can handle this situation. Many searches, however have failed to yield any help. After every resume from sleep mode I have to run ifup to start wlan0. Surely this is not the only way it can be? I have to assume that I'm not getting something simple, and someone here can point out my failing. or if you can just sympathize. running 11.4 here using the realtek 8192 driver set to start at boot time. Though none of the other settings have had any effect on this problem.
I have configured a wireless pcmcia card using ndiswrapper. I'm sure that works, as with the command "iwlist wlan0 scan" gives me back the list of detected wireless networks. At this point I was wondering: is there a way to detect the new interface (wlan0) with network manager? Even after enabling the wifi card the network manager gnome applet always finds only eth0.
This is probably the 1 millionth post about WIFI issues. I have tried many sources on the internet but cant get my wireless to work. I have been using another version of linux for long time. But recent edition of that particular linux does not support my wifi any more. Just recently i have tried SuSE and almost fell in love with it. The only problem, WIFI.
I got a Linksys WUSB54GC USB wifi stick which uses RT2800USB native driver. I installed SuSE from the scratch and it found the wifi stick installed the drivers. My only problem is it does not scan for wireless networks. I haev two wifi networks around here. I can connect to them with windows computer with the same wifi stick.
I have tried iwconfig iwlist ifup but i am stuck exactly what to do.
I want to connect my OpenSuse 11.3 Distribution with the Internet via WLAN. But i can't open the KNetworkManager. It doesnt respond to my clicks. If I click on the KNetworkManager "Button" it doesen't react.
A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.
Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:
1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.
2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).
3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.
I've bought an Acer Aspire 5810T(imeline),I notice after installation of opensuse 11.2 that network-manager has been installed by default probably because my laptop computer is containing a wireless device.I only want my computer using ethernet (with the cable) and so want to know which methods exist to shut down as securely as possible wireless to avoid any missuse activity
Is there any possibility to shutdown traffic by locking with a password?I do not have any wifi relay or antenna at home but want to avoid any relay in my neighbourhood from getting into my computer.
have a dell Inspiron 1501 with ubuntu 10.0.4 I want to rename my wireless card from eth1 to wlan0 as I use conkyrc and it will not read my wireless strength or my ssid cuz it thinks it's a ethernet card and not wireless card. I know this for a fact because peppermint os my wireless card was wlan0 and it worked just fine.
I have two laptops here, a Lenovo T510 and a Lenovo Ideapdad S12, both running Fedora 13 with KDE4. On the T510 wireless worked out of the box and is enabled when I boot it, on the S12 it's not. I have the wl driver installed but every time I boot the laptop wireless is disabled in knetworkmanager. I have to manually enabled it, then wait a few seconds until it establishes a connection to my already configured wireless networks.
I have a HP laptop with an onboard wifi that uses ipw3945 driver. It gets configured on boot and I can use knetworkmanager to connect to a wifi network. But I want to use an usb wifi adapter that works with the zd1211rw driver, I had use it in the past but I don't use linux since like 1 year, I forgot how to do it.
What I want is to disable the board that uses ipw3945 and use the usb adapter. I remember I used modprobe zd1211rw before, I tried it and it doesn't show any warning/error so I think I have the module, should I remove ipw3945 before loading zd1211rw? After using modprobe zd1211rw, can I use Yast or how do I configure it so I can use it with knetworkmanager?
the PC just hangs for ever. No mouse movement, ctrl-alt-del, nothing.
I have downloaded a Linux driver from Realtek but it will not compile. I have the latest kernel-devel, headers, and gcc. I can post compiler errors if anybody would like. They're all apparently to do with missing parameters.
