How do I solve this problem so that I can connect to a SSID of my choice and make a wireless connection while using GNOME 3?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Installing My Wireless Card Atheros AR9285

Aug 12, 2009

installing my wireless card Atheros AR9285.I have tried to get it working with both compat wireless - Ath9k driver but I dont know exactly how to do.I have also tried to get it to work with ndiswrapper, but it is really tricky because nothing is available in centos like precompiled ndiswrapper.I used to work with Arch Linux so everything in Centos is totally new to me and I don�t understand a thing:I need to get it to work as soon as possible.What I have read the should go to just "activate" the ath9k driver with my card and it would work,

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Wireless Network Adapter To Be Read By 'Windows Wireless Drivers'

Nov 24, 2010

I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).

1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly.
2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page.
3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop.
4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb
Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb"
5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it.
6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed.
7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder.
9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present.
10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Still Drops Atheros AR9285

Mar 30, 2010

I bought this new computer with an Atheros AR9285 wireless adapter, signal dropped out after a couple of minutes, sometimes reconnected, I looked up different posts on [URL] and [URL].

First I installed linux-backports and linux-backports-wireless, still dropped. Then I installed compat-wireless-2.6.33 and it still dropped. Finalley I blacklisted the driver with gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath_pci.conf and it still drops. What should I do, it seems to pick it up again after 30 sec or so, but it a bit frustrating.

P.S.: It seems to be getting much better now that I have the torrent program shut down.

Fedora Networking :: Slow Wireless With Atheros AR9285?

Nov 3, 2010

I'm facing problems with Fedora13 and the AR9285 wifi card... the connection is just too slow, and the wired connection works fine. I just figured out that a lot of VAIO users (so am I) were in the same situation, and solved their problem by downloading ath9k drivers from linuxwireless.org. Fine, I did it! That's what I found :

Quote:

Building and installing
cd /path/to/compat-wireless-2.6.32-rc5
./scripts/driver-select <driver-name>
make
sudo make install

...but make is looking for source files in /usr/src/kernels/2.6.34-7-61.fc13.x86_64/build/ , which doesn't exist! The /usr/src/kernels/ folder is just empty. I also found something about the fact that Fedora13 didn't came with kernel's source files... So how can I install that driver? (I didn't find the package via yum...)

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet With Atheros AR9285 (wireless)?

Nov 5, 2010

I've a big trouble that curses me for months. I've an Asus K52Jc laptop with wireless card Atheros AR9285, Ubuntu 10.10 and this network set-up: a WDSL (so an antenna on my house) wired to a switch; the switch shares connection through 2 ethernets cables: one to my uncle house, one to my router Netgear DG834v5.If I connect my laptop via ethernet, internet works good, if I connect to my router, wireless works (I can ping my router), but no internet. I've been helped a lot in official ubuntu chat: after some tries we understood that the problem aren't drivers, isn't Netgear, but probably it's something messed up in routes or arp cache.Anyway note that I have also some difficulties to ping my router, on 3 tries he often loses 1 or 2 packets.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) Not Working

Mar 3, 2011

I have a Toshiba MX35 laptop it's a little old but does the job. I'm have a problem getting the wireless to work. I can boot a live CD either Ubuntu 10.10 or Fedora 14 and they will see the wireless card. The card is Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01).

I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed and that is the OS that is having the problem seeing the wireless. The computer will not handle Ubuntu 10.10 (at least it won't handle the desktop effects under Ubuntu 10.10) but handles them just fine under 9.10 and that's why I have 9.10 installed. I really need the Wifi to work because I'm going to travel in a few days.

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 - Samsung N150 - Atheros AR9285 - Wireless Detected But Cannot Connect

Mar 13, 2010

I have a Samsung N150 netbook with Atheros AR 9285 WiFi card. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it, although this problem happens on other distros too (Network Remix 9.10, OpenSuse 11.2) My wifi card and networks get detected. The problem is when I try to connect to my network, which is protected by WPA key (I don't know if it matters whether it's WPA or not). After I input my network key, the network manager is trying to connect, but obviously cannot, because just prompts me for password again. I can connect without problems to this network from my other computer running WinXP

Ubuntu Networking :: No Driver Claimed In Ndiswrapper - Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter?

Feb 26, 2010

I recently switched from Windows XP to a clean install Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 but it seems to be quite a problem to get the wifi up and running. In Windows the nearby network all appeared in network connections but the same section in Ubuntu is empty. So I decided to go with the ndiswrapper guide to solve the problem with an unclaimed driver. After an entire day messing with my computer I'm still not close... Below follows excerpts taken from the Ndiswrapper guide with posted results from my computer. "ndiswrapper won't work until it thinks that your Windows drivers have been properly installed and that they are the appropriate ones for your wireless card. You can run the command: ndiswrapper -l"

result:

WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release.
net5211 : driver installed
device (168C:0013) present (alternate driver: ath5k)

So I've posted the result the name of my wireless card below: lspci -nn

Result:

00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:0259]
00:00.1 Host bridge [0600]: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:1259]

[code]...

It seems like the network is disabled or unclaimed or both. What to do? I'm stuck after spending an entire day trying to install the wifi. I had no problems in Windows XP but it seems to be quite impossible in Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Gigabyte M1022 And AR9285 Wireless Adapter?

I had U10.10 installed prior to running U10.10 Desktop, and the wlan worked flawlessly on that.My understanding is that the packages are the same and so this should be installed with Desktop, however it will not action the final connection. The wlan is finding networks and prompts for the Key when connecting, but it never actually connects.

Fedora Networking :: Atheros AR2413 FC10 - D-Link Wireless Adapter Worked Fine With Network Manager Disabled

But now I have nuked that installation and replaced it with FC10. Network Manager is nice, and I would like to use it. And it kind-of works. Network Manager recognizes my router and all my neighbor's routers, but I can't connect.

They are comparing the same file, there is some code they are showing but I don't know what they want me to do.

Fedora :: Installing Wireless Card Drivers Without Network Connection

Jul 23, 2009

I have Fedora11 running in my machine and it has no LAN port (RJ-45). I have a wireless PCMCIA card.The model of the wireless card is NL-2511CD EXT2(ETSI).When I insert that card to the PCMCIA slot a window pops up and ask for a WEP key. My wireless router is configured with WPA but above pop-up has no WPA option. I suspect my fedora installation does not have the necessary driver for my wireless card.I want to install that driver. I can transfer that file to the machine via thumb drive since it has no network connection yet. How do I install this? Please refer below images as I'm still a newbie at linux.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Drivers For Wireless Adapter To Install

Feb 24, 2010

I'm booting from disc on a compaq presario F700. Somehow, I messed everything up and now it's not reading that I have an OS. Which was previously vista. Now, when I boot from disc and try to install no partitions come up. I did open the blasted thing to clean it not too long but as far as I know, nothing dislodged. It is a laptop, btw. So, my kneejerk reaction is that the hard-drive got damaged or knocked loose. I also tried using kill-drive to erase it so I could start fresh, also no Hard drive detected. So, I'm going to try that. In the meantime I have another issue. When booting from disc I can't seem to get the drivers for my wireless adapter to install. I have them. Madwifi for AR5001X but I don't know where to put them via terminal.

Ubuntu Installation :: Drivers - 10.04 - Isn't Recognizing My Wireless Adapter

I am new to Linux and actually just finished my install about 30 minutes ago. Ubuntu 10.04 isn't recognizing my wireless adapter, so I need to install the drivers. I know where the drivers are, I just don't know how to install them on a Linux system.

Here is the driver page. I don't know how to download the .inf file (necessary?) but I have ndiswrapper, bcmwl5.sys, and sp33008.exe all in the downloads folder.

Apparently just double clicking the files does nothing, so what do I do now?

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Install / Access Wireless USB Adapter Drivers

Mar 5, 2011

I really want to drop Windows, but wireless connectivity and frequent crashes are really discouraging me. I have a dual-boot W XP with Ubuntu 10.10. I do not have the computer on, so I'm writing this from my weak memory
USB Adapter - Netgear WNDA3100-100NAS = v2
The adapter works under W XP with no problems
The router, Linksys WRT54G sees the adapter in the dhcp table
lsusb lists the adapter.

I have copied the drivers from the install CD onto the desktop. I cannot figure out how to install or access those drivers for the installation. I tried to install the ndiswrapper from the software center, but the center shows it's available from the "main" source. I've looked in the package manager, but can't find it. When I go into terminal, and enter one of the suggested commands in the forums, it can't be located. I have a Belkin F5D8010 installed on this computer, and it works great under W XP. I want to try to get this installed, but until I can figure out installation of the ndiswrapper and how to access it, and get the drivers recognized, I'm at a standstill.
