I have a desktop and I just installed ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot with windows 7. My desktop has a wireless ZEW1642S card. I don't have access to a wired internet connection, but I can use the wireless on my windows 7 fine. It seems like there is no driver for it to work on ubuntu, and since I don't have an internet connection while in ubuntu, it seems I can't update it of course because I need internet to update. My wireless network does NOT have a password if that even means anything for this. I have the exe installer for the driver for it but I don't know how I'm supposed to get the INF file or whatever.
i'm a total ubuntu newbie(installed yesterday!), and i cant seem to get my network card to work. i have an 802.11n Zonet ZEW1642S Wireless PCI Adapter, and it came with a cd that contained the drivers necessary for installation on windows. i understand that the drivers are not compatible with ubuntu, but is there any method that i can get my wireless card to work? if so could someone explain (in newbie speak, sorry!) how to do it?
I have been struggled with wireless connection. Here is the things... My room doesn't have moduler jack. So basically my landlord is sharing with his wifi. Also, my desktop is using Netgear wireless adapter for internet. My laptop and desktop are windows 7 which can conncet with internet very well. But my Linux Os in my desktop couldn't conncet. Recently I installed ubuntu because my co-worker told me ubuntu can be applied to connect with internet through wireless.
However, how can my ubuntu os get wireless connection without ethernet cable. Actually, my harddisk drive is multiple boot containing windows 7, Ubuntu, and Centos. Windows 7 can connect internet smoothly. But you know, Ubuntu and Centos can't do nothing. So I am stacking this situation not to connect internet through Linux OS right now.
I'm trying to use a D-Link DWA-130 wireless adapter with my desktop running Ubuntu 10.10. I've been scouring the forums (and google of course) and really can't understand why it's not working.The output from "iwconfig wlan0 is:Code:wlan0 no such deviceSo here is where I ask the stupid question: must you have a wireless card in the computer to use a wireless usb adapter? I built the computer myself you see and was looking to save some money.
I am a complete novice when it comes to Linux. I have just installed Debian 5 and i would like to get the wireless adapter working. I have a Ralink RT2070 54Mbs Wireless USB Adapter and the driver disk. What are the steps/commands i must follow to install the driver please?
I have Ubuntu 9.10, which I just now installed on my Dell Dimension 3000. The computer has all of its USB ports working perfectly; tested in Windows. I plugged in my SMC USB Ez Connect g wireless adapter, and it isn't even recognized by the system. I used lsusb, and nothing except the USB keyboard and mouse shows up. Every time I boot or shut down, I get tons of errors saying that it's "unable to enumerate USB device on Port...," then the port number of whichever port I plug the wireless adapter into. I've tried using ndiswrapper, and have completely installed the Windows drivers using that (which were the same ones that worked perfectly in Windows XP Pro). I've tried looking into compat-wireless and Linux Wireless, and have successfully installed the zd1211rw drivers and everything. The drivers install completely and work, there is just no hardware present, or so it says. This is what the terminal says when I type dmesg, and also part of what shows up on booting and shutdown:
I hope I've given enough information. Oh, and I downloaded Ubuntu a few days ago from their website, burned to a CD-R, installed, and downloaded all updates that it asked me to. Other than that and the ndiswrapper and driver installation, I've done nothing on the system.
recently I bought a an Asus n13 usb wireless adaptor. It came with the linux drivers installed and some brief instructions, but make failed and I don't know why. I am running ubuntu 10.10 (64bit) and gcc version 4.4.5.The error messages from make
[angus@angus-laptop 2009_0811_RT3070_Linux_STA_v18.104.22.168_USB-N13]$ sudo make make -C tools make: Entering directory `/home/angus/bin/drivers/2009_0811_RT3070_Linux_STA_v22.214.171.124_USB-N13/tools' gcc -g bin2h.c -o bin2h
am running Ubuntu 10.04 ... only because for some reason that is the only version that will load onto my IBM pentium 4 desktop! I installed ndisgtk, ndiswrapper-common and ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 by using the Synaptic Package Manager GUI. Using Windows Wireless Drivers GUI, I installed the driver rt 2870 off the Belkin CD that came with the product. Status is "Hardware present: Yes"
here is the status of my lsusb and iwconfig:
finn@finn-desktop:~$ lsusb Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 002: ID 045e:008c Microsoft Corp. Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 006: ID 050d:935a Belkin Components
It seems I have ndiswrapper working (I think!) ... but i still can't connect my wireless.
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"
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
00:00.0 Host bridge : VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:0259] 00:00.1 Host bridge : VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:1259]
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.
I am using an HP dv6 series laptop. The wireless works fine in Ubuntu 9.10 (must install the Broadcom STA wireless driver). When I try to use Kubuntu 9.10 my computer crashes when I try to install the driver. Is there any particular reason why it works in one and not the other?
I have Dell Wireless N-card 1520 on my Dell Studio 15 laptop. I have installed Ubuntu10.04 in it. My network card was not able to detect wireless connections. I have even installed 'Windows Wireless Driver' using ndiswrapper. I have latest driver for card. But when i click install .inf file , nothing happens or gets installed.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Dell Mini 10v and for some reason I just realized that my wired network connection is not working for some reason. And not in windows either. But my wireless works in windows. So I have downloaded the latest Broadcom STA wireless drivers for linux and have tried to follow this tutorial to install it. But when I get to:
make -C /lib/modules/<2.6.xx.xx>/build M=`pwd` clean I can't get it to work. It says:
make: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic' scripts/Makefile.build:44: /usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic/pwd/Makefile: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic
I am currently running openSUSE 11.4 on my Toshiba A505 laptop. I'm not certain about the exact model number of the wireless adapter but I believe it's made by Realtek. It does not show up in my list of network connections in YaST so I assume I'll need a driver for it.
I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop. When I look at the Device Manager in Windows 7, it says I have an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. Right now, I am unable to connect to wifi with Linux. What drivers am I able to install, and how would I install them?
I have a Dell Inspiron E1505, which has the Dell Wireless 1505 (Broadcom) card. To run the card, I installed the Broadcom STA wireless driver, which seems to activate the wireless card OK. The problem is that once I installed that driver my onboard Ethernet card was deactivated (and yes, it is enabled in BIOS). I had to remove the wireless driver to get the Ethernet back. Does anyone have ideas? I haven't found this problem listed elsewhere. I am running Ubuntu 9.04 with no other problems.
I am not really that good with linux, yet, I have a smc 2602W v3 wireless pci card, and I want to install it on linux, so I could access the internet, but I haven't found any solutions yet. Btw latest ubuntu desktop version. Info about the card: [URL]
I know this isn't the place for this but I am having trouble with my wireless with Linux mint but ubuntu forums feels more friendly and knowledgeable about these problems the wireless adapter in question is a HornetTek HT-H5DN I have been to the company website they do have a driver but I can't compile it due to lack of experience it runs on a Ralink 2720 driver.
I'm trying to install an external graphics adapter for dual-monitor setup, and according to the installation instructions, the driver is libdlo, which requires libusb v0.13. When I follow the installation instructions, I got an error saying I don't have libusb on my OpenSUSE 11.2. The exact installation instructions is as follows:
* Install a compatible libusb version (0.13) * on ubuntu - "sudo apt-get install libusb" * Plug in a compatible DisplayLink USB device
To start the build process, open a shell prompt (as the user who's home directory the libdlo is installed into) and change to the libdlo directory to run
$ ./configure $ sudo make install $ make check
Make check will do some basic drawing on the DisplayLink device. The 'sudo make install' step will have installed libdlo.h, the main header, in your local include directory, and libdlo in your local library.(The error message comes out at $ sudo make install).
I noticed it mentioned Ubuntu, does this mean that it will only work in Ubuntu and wont work in OpenSUSE? I'm not familiar with those commands in the instructions above, I can only guess them but don't really know what each line of the instruction does exactly. If libusb also applies to OpenSUSE, how can I get it installed on my system?
time Windows user here; limited line command experience from early computer learning; Just wiped my drive and installed Ubuntu. How do I install a driver for the netgear wireless adapter - it was already installed in the machine. I've downloaded the driver believed to work. What next? Also, any instruction on educating myself on Linux/Ubuntu basics?
Does anyone have a driver for Cisco Aironet PCMCIA AIR-CB21AG-A-K9 wireless adapter that works with Ubuntu 11.04? Ubuntu does not see the card when plugged into the PCMCIA slot. I thought that if Ubuntu had a driver installed, it would pick up the device.
Apparently, the wireless adapter Realtek 8171 uses the rtl8192se driver, which is currently available only as source from Realtek's website. Is building a driver equal to building a package? Should I follow the same cautions, say these ones?
I am brand new to Linux and Ubuntu. However it was very easy and smooth to install and get updated using my wired ethernet connection. I am now trying to understand how to have my wireless network adapter recognized or driver installed. I will be searching around the forums but it suggested I make an initial post as a new user. I am using an older Dell Inspiron 2200. I believe the chipset in my wireless adapter is indeed Broadcomm, so hopefully that will help direct any responses.
