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 :: 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 :: Intermittent Wireless With Atheros AR5001X+ On Lucid?

Sep 12, 2010

I have an old Tatung tablet pc, with touchscreen, stupid speakers and an atheros wifi card (AR5001X+). With XP, everything works reasonably well, and wifi connectivity is rock solid. I know I'm asking for trouble installing *nix on this machine, but if the wireless worked, I'd be happy. However... With an updated Lucid install, I can see and connect to open, WEP, and WPA(1/2/tkip/aes/whatever) networks. I get good speeds with every network I've tried, but after a minute or two, my connection speed drops to zero, only to recover after another few minutes. A few minutes later, the wireless dies again, then reconnects....

Both the router and the tablet show that I still have a connection, and the connection speed recorded by both does not change from the 'working' condition. I get nothing in the logs (router or tablet) and no indication (aside from transfers stalling) that there's any problem. The 'network history' part of Gnome system monitor shows the data rate dropping to zero, but a network monitor applet on the gnome panel shows transmissions and (later) recieves. Reported signal strength remains constant, and seems to have no bearing on the frequency or length of the dropouts.

I've tried the stock lucid drivers, the lucid wireless backports, and madwifi (currently on madwifi) with no change to symptoms. I did think that it may be to do with scanning for networks (iwevent showed completed scans as the dropouts ended) so I removed network manager and tried static configuration with /etc/network/interfaces . The problems persited (although iwevent is now silent) and I am now using Wicd with no change.

lscpi:

Code:

sudo lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82852/82855 GM/GME/PM/GMV Processor to I/O Controller (rev 02)
00:00.1 System peripheral: Intel Corporation 82852/82855 GM/GME/PM/GMV Processor to I/O Controller (rev 02)

[code]....

I see nothing toobad in these, so I ran a longer test - I bash'd a while loop to ping the router, run ifconfig and iwconfig, and spit the results into files. I concurrently ran a wireshark capture. All of these contain a lot of text/data, so I've attached them here. I can't see any connection between the output of ifconfig/iwconfig/wireshark while the ping drops, but I'm no expert.

Ubuntu Networking :: Weak Wireless Signal In 9.10 With Madwifi (Atheros Ar5001x)

Mar 6, 2010

I am among those unfortunate wretches with an Atheros wireless card (ar5001) and I've had problems with it from the day I installed Ubuntu. I've been using Madwifi to connect to the internet, and it's worked fine, until I lately changed my internet connection, got a new modem etc.

Madwifi works still, but the signal is really weak - while not so on Windows Vista.

I know it's NOT ipv6 related. Do I have to change the connection settings? Is my card outdated or whatever? Am I using inefficient drivers? Should I just not use Madwifi and rather something else instead?

(Trying to install ndiswrapper and get it to work was a dreadful process, so I won't attempt that again.)

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

Mar 3, 2009

I have been running FC8 on this IBM T23 with a D-Link wireless adapter. Using MadWifi this has 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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros AR5001X Disabled In 10.10

Sep 1, 2011

My old Winbook laptop had good wifi connection under Ubuntu 9.10 but shows 'disabled' under Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10. At least under 10.10 it came up with working video (had to mess with GRUB on 10.04 before video would work). I have an onboard wi-fi card that has never worked well with any Linux as far as I know but the Atheros PCMCIA card worked solid under Karmic (9.10). Here is some diag. info.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros Wireless Usb Adapter - Unable To Post Messages?

Jan 15, 2011

I can't post messages, I think something is wring with my internet.Anyway, I'm gonna copy paste what I've been trying to say...I just bought the TP-LINK Model No. TL-WN821N. It's an atheros. And I was wondering where can I find the drivers for Linux. It only includes drivers for Windows.

I don't have much experience with networks,I found this website,

http:[url]......

I got stuck in the patch section, I don't know what they are trying to say. They are using

diff -urp compat-wireless-2009-02-22_AR9170_230209/drivers/net/b44.c compat-wireless-2009-02-22_AR9170_230209/drivers/net/b44.c

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

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Your Atheros 802.11n Wireless Working In 9.1?

Jan 11, 2010

I spent days trying to figure out how to get my atheros AR928x 802.11n wireless card to work in Ubuntu. The card worked perfect in Windows 7 but the connection kept dropping in Ubuntu. It would find my router and connect with 60% signal for about 5 seconds, then fall down to about 25% signal and then cut out altogether. After searching for days to find a solution, I finally figured it out and figured Id post it here to let everyone else in the same boat have a working wireless too!

I found this solution from:[URL].. This solution is for JAUNTY (Ubuntu 9.04), so if you are running Jaunty, you can just follow that post. If you are using Karmic (Ubuntu 9.1), you can follow this tutorial I'm posting. It's pretty simple: First, make sure you got all your files up to date. Type in a terminal:

sudo apt-get update Let that run, and once its done, type into terminal:
sudo apt-get upgrade
Once that finished, restart your computer. Again open up terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-karmic

If you are using Jaunty, instead of karmic type in jaunty, if you use another version of ubuntu, you can find a list of versions and their names here:[URL].. Restart your computer one more time, and you should be good to go! This has been tested and confirmed to work on: -Ubuntu 9.1(karmic) with an Atheros 928x 802.11n wireless card, using the Ubuntu installed network software, in a Gateway NV53 laptop connected to a belkin 802.11n wireless router.-HP base station / 802.11g airport express

This has been tested and does not work/has issues with:

-airport extreme I hope this works for you too, and if it does, please let me know with your hardware and Ubuntu version so I can post here what other setups have been confirmed to let this work.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04RC Atheros Wireless Not Working?

Apr 24, 2010

Does Ubuntu 10.04RC support Atheros AR2427 wireless card out of the box? I ran 10.04RC Netbook Live on my new Asus Eee 1001P Netbook today and it looks very impressive indeed. However, I could not get Ubuntu 10.04 to even see the Etheros AR2427 card (iwconfig). Am I doing something wrong or is there no driver to support the card? If no driver what are my options to get it working under 10.04 as I do not want to use Windows on my netbook..

Networking :: Can't Get Wireless Working In Slitaz (Asus Aspire ZG5, Atheros Wifi)?

Sep 17, 2010

So I decided to wipe out Windows and try Slitaz. It's an awesome well featured distro for it's size. One huge problem tho: I can't get wireless to work for the life of me. I actually went as far as to manually load the ath5k module but It just refuses to recognize my wireless router, much less any nearby routers. It simply doesn't see anything when it scans for wireless networks. I have no problem with that in Puppy Lucid. But I'd really like to use Slitaz, just for it's small size and quick bootup. Can anyone PLEASE help me with that?

PS: It happened here before that I had to plea and beg for any response, so PLEASE(!!) don't let me hang like that this time.

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 Adapter Not Working / Fix It?

Aug 26, 2010

As the title reads. My wireless adapter does not work when I boot from the Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD. The adapter in question... tricky. It's this one: [URL]...- however, aside from a mention in one of the comments to a "Ralink RT2780", I don't see any reference to a make/model.

The software that ships with this product is indeed Ralink-branded, but again there's no mention of a specific make/model. So I assume it's just a driver issue, however I've no idea where to begin in my search for one as I can't identify its model number.

Ubuntu Networking :: WG111T Wireless Adapter Not Working?

Feb 28, 2010

I have been searching for days on end trying to get my machine to detect my Netgear WG111T wireless adapter...and I've gotten absolutely nowhere at all.Most tutorials suggest I use ndigstk(sp?), which allows me to use Windows drivers for my adapter. I've been told many times to use the wg111t.inf file, but all I've been able to come up with is the w11t.inf file. Whenever I start up the Windows Wireless Drivers application, I usually get a popup which tells me "Unable to see if Hardware is detected"--yet when I hit the OK prompt, next to the w11t.inf file, it says "Hardware detected --Yes", yet I still have gotten nowhere. I grasp some basics of Linux, but overall I'm still pretty new to it--and I have a big headache from the whole thing.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, my install is 9.04, so if 9.10 resolves this, how would I go about upgrading without downloading an ENTIRELY new disc (I have a horrid internet connection, it'd take HOURS to download the 699MB ISO, so perhaps make that a last resort)

Adapater name: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)

Code:
iwconfig:

Restarting the network with 'sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart' didn't work.I've tried Ubuntu several times before but usually there is one small issue which makes me go back to Windows. I love 10.4 so I hope I can get this working so I can stay on Ubuntu!

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Adapter Cannot Connect To Any Network

Aug 31, 2010

I have an HP Pavilion dv5 1002nr laptop running Vista. I decided to install Ubuntu using the windows installer, which did install well, but I decided that it wasn't for me, and uninstalled it. Now, my wireless adapter which is a Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g can see the network, find networks by itself, and is supposedly installed correctly according to Vista, cannot connect to any networks at all despite being able to see them and acquire a signal strength. Up until installing Ubuntu I have never had an issue like this. Other devices have no trouble connecting to this network, and I am currently using a Netgear wireless usb dongle to connect to the very network that my Atheros can not connect to.
