Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Aspire 5517 No Network 9.04?
Jan 21, 2010
Maybe they made a change without changing the model number? I have an Acer aspire 5517 bought last Friday, and with Ubuntu 9.10 the wired network came up fine, I upgraded with latest fixes today, but it stil doesn't recognise the wireless interface at all, not "network connections" window, not "ifconfig -a".
I searched everything before posting this, and tried every solution, but so far no luck, i will post my info, and hope someone smarter then me can solve this? Wireless works fine in windows, but apears disabled in ubuntu lspci -nn
Code: 00:00.0 Host bridge : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS880 Host Bridge [1022:9601] 00:02.0 PCI bridge : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 PCI to PCI bridge (ext gfx port 0) [1022:9603] 00:04.0 PCI bridge : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 PCI to PCI bridge (PCIE port 0) [1022:9604] 00:05.0 PCI bridge : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 PCI to PCI bridge (PCIE port 1) [1022:9605] 00:11.0 SATA controller : ATI Technologies Inc SB7x0/SB8x0/SB9x0 SATA Controller [AHCI mode] [1002:4391]
the laptop has no bluetooth chip, so i am not sure where "acer-bluetooth" is coming from. Also i am quite familar with linux, so no need to hold my hand, i am just not sure what to do next in this situation. (if this makes solving this easier)
PS: There is no 'hardware switch' on the laptop, but there is a Fn+F3 key combination which does nothing. network-manager shows on startup 'Enable wireless' with no check next to it, checking it 'Enables' it, but the wireless remains disabled.
I'm running Kubuntu and Windows on the same machine but when I swap over to Kubuntu I can't get the wireless to work. The lshw command returns network disabled but the machine can see that there is a wlan0 connection.
I've been trying to install the broadcom Linux driver from their site but the instructions fall apart at step 3: cd bnx...version/ ( directory just created by tar). I'm guessing this is because I don't have a Live CD (after almost a week of trying to burn a disc I just broke down and got Wubi) but that doesn't change the fact I have no idea what to do now or if this will even work.
If it makes any difference, the wired connection will also occasionally die mysteriously after about 30-60 minutes of use and refuse to re-activate but work fine when I switch over to Windows or just plug it into the router.
I just installed Fedora 12 x86 in an Acer Aspire One D250. Everything ran smoothly and was detected upon install but unfortunately after all updates were applied to it I ended with a device with no network connection (not even Ethernet).
This appears to be kernel-related because the old kernel (stock) works as expected. The problematic kernel version is (18.104.22.168-70.fc12.i686).
Is there any known workaround for this? Or am I condemned to run this older kernel until the other one gets fixed?
Another question, in the event a new kernel comes out I'd like to keep to older one as a back up, how can I arrange that?
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.4 as a dual boot on my Acer Aspire 0ne 533. I have to keep the Windows partition for work, or I'd have just installed Ubuntu. I'm used to plugging in an ethernet cable for the first round of updates until I get the WiFi working, but it just isn't working for me this time. I have a horrid feeling that Windows has a way of hogging the Ethernet card.
I had a look in the forums, and could not find anything referring to this specifically, which is unusual because as far as I can tell the AA1 is a popular machine and lots of people dual boot it. Perhaps it is an easy fix that's been buried in the archives?
after finally getting this machine tot run with ubuntu i am now on an ethernet connection because all of a sudden, my wireless says its disabled. When iwconfig is entered, it shows my wlan 0 but says power management : off. It is so frustrating because I feel like there should just be a button that says to switch it on haha. Please help, my wifi was working, and after a boot it is no longer.
This bug has been around for years now?!? Surely this can be fixed by now, would somebody please feel this very common issue. I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer Aspire One 110AB netbook and everything seems to work fine except the wireless - I can connect via ethernet no problem.
While the wireless can scan for networks - it seems them but they seem to be rather weak signals and also no matter never connect UNLESS I turn off ALL WEP/WPA security clearly not an option.
I had UBR installed and working fine for a month or so, wireless and everything. Then I did a clean re-install while trying to add WinXP to half of my drive.Anyway, with the new install, my wireless chip (BCM4312 802.11b/g) isn't switching on at all. I've tried installing the Broadcom driver that appears when I run Hardware Drivers, but that doesn't help.With the old install, the wireless switch and indicator light on the front of the netbook worked, now nothing.
I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5, which is running (Desktop Version) 10.04. I've been happily using the built in wifi adapter, but now I've got a new wireless hub that supports 802.11n and I want to exploit the higher connection speed. I've bought a wireless usb that has no external markings, however, using 'lsusb' I've managed to establish it contains ralink 3070. Any ideas how I get this to work? When I plug in the wireless dongle from another laptop I get two connections available for use in network manager, but when I plug this one in nothing seems to happen.
I have an Acer Aspire One 1551 netbook. After I installed Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix (my first Ubuntu, though), I discovered that wi-fi device isn't being recognized - ifconfig says that I only have ethernet device present.Somehow rfkill list indicates, that acer-wireless is always blocked. How to unblock it? rfkill unblock 0 doesn't resolve the issue - device is still blocked.somehow 'Fn+WiFi' combination on keyboard activates/deactivates Bluetooth instead of WiFi. Can I alter the behavior of the combination to turn on/off wireless networking? I googled for a while but fruitlessly. Is it a known problem? Is there a workaround for it already? Is there any additional information (clues) I can provide to speedup the process a bit?
Fresh install Ubuntu 10.10 on Acer Aspire 5050 with new hard drive. I struggled to turn the Wifi's button turn on but led light always on. It does not detect wifi driver. I installed ndiswrapper to get Acer's Winxp driver: netathr.inf by Windows Wireless Drivers from Ubuntu Software download. It's same thing as ndiswrapper.
Aspire One D250 wlan/ethernet not working on centos 5.4i have tried alot, searchingon net to findout the both lan card drivers for my new aspire one d250 but coudn't find out. Please help me in finding and installing the drivers. infact i have seen alot people searching for the same but no one has successfully installed any of the lan.
I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Acer 5024wlmi and followed this guide from Ubuntu community to enable my Broadcom AirForceOne BCM4318 wifi card.Now the wireless adapter is on (laptop front led also is on), I can see active wifi networks but connection fails (even with a simple ad-hoc open wifi network!). I tried with Network Manager/WICD/Wifi Radar and also using terminal lfconfig/lwconfig commands without success. It seems that my wifi card cannot ping access points: for example see this log from WICD connection session:
It's a Acer Aspire 4520 Laptop running Vista Ultimate. All Drivers are working fine except Wireless. No wireless adapter is shown in Device Manager. Acer website was no help at all, has the drivers but no adapters for download. This laptop shows that it has Acer signalUp, also shows 802.11b/g WLAN on the sticker. I've downloaded Athero AR??? wireless driver, did not do anything to help the problem, downloaded the broadcom one also and it did nothing. Works fine on the LAN cable but no wireless.
I can't get my wireless card to work. I downloaded a broadcom driver for it and i do believe its the right one, but its not helped. I'm running mint 8. The information on my internal wireless card i got using the terminal is:
lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 760/M760 Host (rev 03) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SG86C202 00:02.0 ISA bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS963 [MuTIOL Media IO] (rev 25) 00:02.1 SMBus: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS961/2 SMBus Controller 00:02.5 IDE interface: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5513 [IDE] [Code]....
I have an Acer Aspire One 110 with Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition, after i upgraded to 10.10 the wireless network connection is lost about 10 minutes after login, and I can't get it back without rebooting.
I've just worked out how to get the wireless card working with an Acer Aspire D260 wireless card to work. Enter terminal command; sudo apt-get install wifi-radar
Then reboot ubuntu 10.04 after it has installed, network manager should now detect wireless networks in range and allow connection, right click network manager icon and select "Enable Wireless" or "Disable wireless" as required to turn on or off. So many others have had problems getting the wifi to work with Acer Aspire D260 netbooks and ubuntu 10.04.
Have a dedicated Fedora 10 laptop so that I can learn everything I need to know. I am using an Acer Aspire 3000 with a fresh copy of Fedora 10 and KDE
The Aspire 3000 has a built in broadcom wireless card, with windows XP you activate the wireless using an LED button on the front of the laptop, but with Fedora I can't seem to do this.
I have found a couple of threads to fix this error on Ubuntu but nothing about fedora. I don't want to change OS as I have just about got this system running like clockwork. I have left the wireless until last as the normal LAN works fine.
I usually used freebsd. Now I decided to try linux and selected CentOS 5.5. I installed it on my notebook Acer Aspire 5930G (I tried both i386 and x86_64 versions) and I have problems with cable networking. I selected static network configuration during install. Internet access is working via NAT on freebsd server.
I can ping anything in my LAN, I can ping any host in internet, nslookup works fine, but nothing else isn't working. I can't wget even in my LAN, can't connect to FTP server in my LAN etc. The same with internet hosts. Iptables turned off, iptables -l shows that all chains are in ACCEPT. SElinux turned off. NAT for accessing internet works fine - when I reboot to windows 7 with same network config internet is working. I guess this could be problem with driver for my NIC - Marvell Yukon 88E8071 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet. But I can't change it on notebook :)
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 onto my Acer Aspire D260 netbook.I find it much easier to use than Windows 7.Everything has been working fine until I recently tried going on the internet via battery power instead of my A/C charger. My update manager is showing that I am up to date and Additional Drivers is showing that the Broadcom STA wireless driver is installed and in use.
I've recently purchased a new laptop of ACER(aspire 5750). I've installed two OS(win-7 & ubuntu 10.04 LTS). Till now, on my ubuntu every things working fine except i can't able to access my cable model broadband.
I open up the "Network connections" section & at there i saw it can't able to detect any WIRED connection.
I've checked my all my ethernet jack & all rest of connection. All r perfect. But, don't know why it can't able to detect my broadband. But, in windows section, broadband is working fine.
