OpenSUSE Wireless :: How To Get Speed Up / How To Get Internet At Home To Work
Mar 22, 2010
I recently installed Open SUSE on my HP laptop with a (duh) Broadcom Wifi card. I finally got it to work, but it works very slowly. The max speed I get at my college WiFi is 5 mbits, and at home I can't access the Internet at all ,just the LAN. It works perfectly in Windows on the same machine. At my college the Internet works fine though.Anybody got some tips how to get the speed up and how to get the Internet at home to work?
My wireless connection work just fine but it gives me wrong connection status, like 10% even when I'm seating near the wireless router or disconnect status while I steal manege to use the internet at full speed.
I am having trouble with my home network, from one computer to another both using wireless g (Ubuntu 10.04) what transfer rate should I expect/hope for when copying a file from one computer to another? My speed is consistently 220 KBps am I correct in assuming this is pretty bad?
I have OpenSUSE installed on my laptop and everything is working well, except the wireless. It almost seems that every time I run a KDE distro I can not get the internet to work. I've run YaST and used iwconfig.
I recently got a lenovo w510 laptop and I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE on it. the wireless works fine at home (802.11g WPA2) when I go to work I have tried to set up the wifi for the 802.1X PEAP network but it doesn't look like it even tries to connect.
The work network set up is as follows. non-brodcasting SSID (do I need to tell network manager of this? I manually enter the SSID no problem)
Dynamic WEP 802.1X PEAP blank anonymous identity no CA cert (I suspect this might be the problem) PEAP v 1 MSCHAPv2
I have verified my username and pw several times, as well as the SSID. Just yesterday I helped a co-worker get on the network under ubuntu and it worked like a charm.
The Hardware profile displays the wifi card as a "WiFi Link 6000 Series" It is an intel card.
I am a Linux newbie using fc11 and wireless broadband from 3G for my personal laptop. Sometimes my download speed is up to 100+ kB/s (due to my observation from using yum command) and also there is time its only 5.6 kB/s. Its really slow. At first, I disabled automatic update so that it can work faster. It does work faster for a while and then the speed drops to around 11 or 12 kB/s.
(Beginner)Just installed openSUZE 11.1 Dual boot with Vista. I can set up my wireless settings, wep, etc and it says it connects just fine. But when I try to USE the internet it doesn't work. Nothing in update, nothing in firefox. It says it is connected but it's acting like something is blocking it.
i have a zenda w322u usb wireless adapter that gives a good connection to wireless router but seems to give very poor download performance compared to my laptop. Are there settings that i can access for this adapter to improve its performance.
I've searched all night for similar threads and either don't understand the instructions or find that my computer simply isn't the same! I've tried to gather as much information as I felt needed when people asked in other threads. Just use small words around me, I'm really *that* technologically inadequet. Why I bought a linux ubuntu computer is still a mystery!
I'm having trouble connecting to my home's wireless internet, which is linksys. I can connect via wire just fine, but I want to access my built-in wireless card. How do I set up the wireless for this machine? Here's the info of what version of Ubuntu and about the card.
I have a netgear wireless system and it is problematic with Linux. I need to use a static IP or will loose connection. It is also problematic with an itouch and a kindle. I just bought my wife a kindle and need to get it to work. It there a way to run two home wireless systems from one Internet connection? I have a wireless router supplied by surewest but my wireless Cannon printer did not seem to like that.
After my "upgrade" to 10.04 I am unable to access the internet at home with wireless using Firefox, but am able to access the router. I am however able to access the internet at work, both use WPA password protection. I was also able to do the updates over wireless at home, despite not being able to access the internet. I am currently at work, and downloaded Google Chrome and did not import settings from Firefox, to see if there were any settings issues with Firefox itself.
It's also because I've never had any big problem. The last openSUSE I used without problems was/is 11.2(I still use it as main desktop because of problems since 11.3).The problem is - the DL speed is repeatedly drops down to around 156KB/s albeit my top speed of router-NIC combination is at 21-22MB/s. When this happen and open network manager and click/reload my wifi or restart wireless or even computer, the speed is back at the top. But after few seconds, minutes it drops down again, and so on. I made some images(to see it on the network manager draphs):after that drop-off:and restart wireless:Best chance to see it is when downloading more files with FreeRapidDownloader or JDownloader. Upload speed is OK. The first time I've seen this problem in 11.3, which i've skipped in hope that 11.4 will be ok and now, as the EOL of 11.2 is coming I'd like to go on.It's also desktop and installation media independent(Gnome works similar, DVD, LiveCD).I've checked many other distributions and none of them had this problem. But openSUSE is my love, so i need and want to solve it
I'm a first-time Ubuntu user. I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop, creating a dual boot in combination with Windows XP. Unfortunately, I can't get my Wireless Internet to work. It looks to me that Ubuntu somehow doesn't accept my Speedtouch dongle, seeing as the little green light on it stays off. The Ubuntu Help function simply suggests to go to Windows and "turn it on", but when I'm in Windows, it IS on... Also, in the network manager, there are NO wireless networks to choose from.
Futher down is some output from some commands that I see mentioned on forums discussing similar problems.
I think I should stress that I'm using a desktop, not a laptop, and that "hooking it up with a cable" is not an option, due to the distance between the desktop and the modem and the size and weight of the desktop. I would also like to stress that I have no experience managing my own Ubuntu system, so try to keep any instructions as simple as possible.
can't get my wireless internet to work.I have a toshiba satellite laptop with a build in antheros wireless card. Heres the info on my card when I do lspci.Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)I'm completely clueless on how I get it to connect to the internet wirelessly I was able to connect to my router earlier but it wouldn't let me use the internet though. I was trying to follow instructions from other post and now I cant even connect to my router anymore.
I installed it and it seems to run smother than windows vista so far but it wont work with my wireless internet the light that shows it is connected doesn't even glow. I am using a Compaq Presario Labtop.
I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04. Everything worked fine, until I rebooted. Now I can not connect to my home wireless internet, so I can't re-enable third party software sources. I am currently using a different computer, so I know that our internet works. I checked the wireless switch on my laptop, and it says that wireless is enabled. I've rebooted, and it still doesn't work. I tried our wired internet, and that didn't work either (although I'm not sure if our wired internet works; we haven't used it in a few years)
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and its great. However when I connect to the internet at home it shows that the connection has been established but I still cant connect to the internet. My flatmates are all able to connect. However, I am able to connect from work both wirelessly and through an ethernet cable.
today i installed ubuntu 10.10 on my hp mini 210 netbook. previously i had ubuntu netbook remix running and had no problem accessing the internet both wired and wireless; however, since installing 10.10 i have been searching for a solution for the last six hours but have been unable to get either to work.
as far as hardware is concerned i have a broadband bcm4313 802.11 network controller and am running through a linksys router which i know to be working because i have 4 other computers connected to it all with internet access. i checked ifconfig and a lo conection was listed but no eth0. i also tried downloading a broadband tar.gz driver but dont have any packages to build it and cant get any since the computer has no internet. i assume wired is easiest to setup so lets start there even though i use wireless 90% of the time. im new to linux so please dont expect me to know any terminal commands.
My wireless adapter connects to my WPA2 network perfectly, but when I run firefox it says it can't load the webpage, no matter what page I go to. Also, downloading new software doesn't work either. Any ideas please?
As of now, my internet works fine when connected with an ethernet cable.The problem is it doesnt seem like my wireless is working at all.The led light is orange, (its usually blue when it connects) and I cannot see my home dsl network.Is thereany specific troubleshooting steps I should take?HP dv6000 laptopwireless card: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
I am having trouble getting my wireless internet working on Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Studio 1535 laptop. My wireless card works just fine in an earlier version (8.10) of Ubuntu. In fact, it worked right out of the box on Intrepid. However, in 9.10, I can not get it to work. I have installed Wicd Network Manager in it, and it shows no networks visible, even though if I reboot and go into my 8.10 version (I have a multiboot), opening Wicd will immediately show several wireless networks within range. So I'm thinking that the 9.10 version is missing a driver for my wireless card, which 8.10 has.
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
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
I'm having trouble setting up my desktop pc to access the internet via my wireless router. i have tried to set it up in networkmanager (it shows as connected when clicking on the NM icon) but when loading firefox or when trying to update opensuse i just cannot get a connection.
