Ubuntu Networking :: Constant Wireless Disconnecting With Intel Based Card
May 2, 2010
This is a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell XPS M1530. I'm getting very frequent disconnects to my wireless network, despite good signal. I have wicd and nm-applet running side by side, wicd doesn't work by itself and nm-applet won't get a new IP after reassociating with the AP.
Wireless connection is steady in Windows 7, so I'm guessing it's a problem with the driver.
Are Intel wireless cards compatible with non-intel-based laptops? In my case I wish to upgrade the current Atheros-based mini pci express wifi card with the Intel 4965agn. It is an Asus 4520 with an AMD Athlon X2 processor and nvidia nForce chipset.
I have lenovo thinkpad, T61 with Intel 4965AGN wireless card. It is a N card, it works under N mode in windwos, but not in Ubuntu (10.10). I installed ndiswrapper and got the windows xp drivers for this card. the issue is that i got an error when installing the drivers and since then I cannot use wireless.
The error i got is: Code: Module could not be loaded. Error was: FATAL: Could not read '/lib/modules/2.6.35-24-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or director I unistalled the driver, but now under network connections no wireless connections appear, nothing. I cannot use wirless anymore.
I have a Dell Vostro 200 with the above wireless card in it and I cant get it to work. I have been on Intel's website and downloaded e1000-8.0.18 and installed as the instructions. But it is still greyed out on the Network Manager. I have just installed Ubuntu Desktop the latest current version.
I have a new Thinkpad t510 laptop with an intel centrino wireless N card (no bluetooth). I installed ubuntu a couple weeks ago after I got another hard drive in the expansion bay. I have the drive partitioned into two sections, 250gb for file storage, and 250gb for the linux OS. Currently no other OS is installed on the other harddrive.
I have had everything perfect for the past couple weeks, but once i installed some updates today, my wireless fails to work now. Just some general info that you might ask me, lspci | grep Network, returns
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 06) 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 Furthermore, on the top right of my screen, my wireless is grey'd out and says no network devices available on hover.
Im trying to connect to my college wireless network. I have looked a thinkwiki and no one has posted any bugs. Any ideas on getting it working again?
I upgraded the wireless card in my laptop (sony VAIO CW) due to the original Atheros being incurably slow.The new card is an Intel 6300 ultimate n. In Windows 7, after installing the relevant drivers everything worked without a hitch.In my Ubuntu 10.04 installation, however, I have been unable to get it working.Initially I had the compat-wireless modules installed (linux-backports-modules-wireless-generic), as I had done so to try and get the Atheros card working better. I tried removing all of these, and that made the difference that iwconfig now (instead of nothing) listed
I'm dual booting windows 7 64 bit and Ubuntu 10.1 64 bit on my Dell Inspiron 11z with an embedded WiMAX/WiFi Link 6050 series wireless card made from Intel. I only use it for wifi, not 3g or wimax. I installed the latest driver from intellinuxwireless.org, iwlwifi-6050-ucode-184.108.40.206, but it still doesn't seem to work. I ran these terminal commands from another thread:
cd Desktop/wlwifi-6050-ucode-220.127.116.11 sudo cp iwlwifi-6050-4.ucode /lib/firmware sudo chmod 644 /lib/firmware/iwlwifi*
After running "sudo rmmod -f iwlagn sudo modprobe iwlagn", I get this read out for my wireless card.
*-network DISABLED description: Wireless interface product: WiMAX/WiFi Link 6050 Series vendor: Intel Corporation
In the ubuntu help section it tells me to flip a manual wifi switch to enable it, but pressing my windows wifi button, F2, doesn't appear to do anything while in ubuntu. The only experience I have working with linux is typing some terminal commands on my android phone to root it.
I have always had trouble in the past getting wireless adapters and what not to start working on Ubuntu but with each 6-month upgrade most problems are fixed while new ones are made. Since Ubuntu 10.10 just came out I thought I'd give it a go and test it with my hardware.
Before 10.10 Ubuntu could not connect with my wireless device and I had to do many things with gedit and such to get it working. After I have upgraded to 10.10 Ubuntu now recognizes my wireless device and network and I can search the web...but wait here it comes.
Literally minutes after a fresh install and first connection to my network my wireless signal will drop and prompt me to reconnect. Of course the first thing comes to mind I reconnect which doesn't work so I unplug the device and replug it making it works...Two minutes later my connection drops again and so I so reboot, and if you really want to know what happens next just restart this paragraph.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 (as it came from the factory, no mods), a Linksys WRT54G router, and Ubuntu 9.10/Karmic with all updates. I've had issues since I upgraded from 9.04/Jaunty to 9.10/Karmic. It did work for awhile (I think a few days), but then it suddenly just couldn't find our wireless network. I reformatted (with 9.10) thinking it had just been a bad install - now I can connect to our network, but it throws me off every two minutes. My roommate (Dell laptop, Vista) has no problems with the internet, and I've visited a friend (in another state) and used her wireless internet without issues (though I couldn't tell you which router they were using). I've gone into our router's settings (with both my laptop and my roommate's) to reset the router or change the security settings, but with no real progress.
Brand new to linux/ubuntu..Just downloaded the most recent version. Well when i try to connect to my network....it connects...then about 2 min later it disconnects and i have to unplug and replug my adapter.
I installed ubuntu 10.04 a few days ago. And I am running into a few problems wherein my wireless network disconnects and prompts me again for password.
Even when I re-enter it (correctly of course) I cannot reconnect and I have to do a system restart. After the restart, the wireless stays connected but disconnects again after a while and I find myself stuck in this loop.
I do not know if the following is any help, but below I am producing the output of lspci command and a few log messages that I think maybe related to this problem
Here is the output of lspci command
And here are some messages that show up quite often in daemon.log
I just bought a new laptop. This one came with win7 home. The wireless works perfect. Today I installed ubuntu 10.4 next to windows. I made a first connection which went easy. But after 30 seconds it disconnects. Then it tries 30 seconds to reconnect. It reconnects and after 30 secodns or so, it disconnects again. It keeps doing this all the time on ubuntu while on windows it works without any problems. This is what sais under the device manager for my wirelesscard stuff:
Intel(R) WiFi 1000 BGN Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2 Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
I'm finding my wireless connection is disconnecting alot, I never had this problem when I was runnning windows 7. I have tried running wicd client but found it was doing the same, then uninstalled the normal network manager and tried just using wicd but it kept saying bad password and wouldnt connect at all. Even though it would work fine but disconnect alot when i still had network manager on.
I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.
I've been using a Netgear WG311v3 wireless card to connect to the internet successfully since 8.10. However, since 10.04 I've had some serious issues with this card (at least...I think it's the card). I updated to Meerkat hoping that the problem might fix itself, but it's still there. Here's the situation: The problem most often occurs when I'm running Transmission, but also Firefox. It also happens when streaming videos to my xbox via uShare...basically, any time I'm using the internet.
Suddenly, my download in Transmission will drop to 0.0 KiB/s or in Firefox, pages will stop loading. If I close and try to reopen Firefox, it tells me the process is already running. If I try to restart, it says firefox-bin is still running. I click reboot anyway, and the computer hangs indefinitely at the purple Ubuntu shutdown screen. The terminal also freezes if I try to run any commands that are wireless related, for example iwconfig or ifconfig. I have to close the terminal to kill the process.
I've also had more serious crashes when running Transmission where absolutely everything freezes and a hard reset is my only way out. Forgive my n00bishness and let me know what other information I can provide you with.
I like to test my network often. Until recently, I've been doing so on my old Ubuntu 6.06 laptop... the problem is It's too slow (1.06 GHz single Core ), and old, (designed for Win 2000) to really be effective any more. So, recently I bought a new laptop...one with a Dual core Processor, and twice the speed. Anyway, I'm running Fedora Core 10 X86_64 on it. My problem is as follows:
Although I do have MadWifi installed, for some reason, I still can't put my Atheros based Netgear WPN511 into monitor mode. (in the Network configuration window, it says "Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+" I'm not sure what it means but I'll put it in in case it helps) does MadWifi not work with Fedora? if not, is there a Fedora 10 (X86_64) alternative?
Just installed Karmic Koala on my Intel Macbook via Virtualbox and cannot get wireless working. Previously did this with 9.04 and everything worked. Do I need to use ndiswrapper? I don't remember having to do that before.
I have Dell 1537 laptop having Intel 5100 wireless card. It is not supported by Fedora 9. I have tried downloading the driver iwlwifi-5000-ucode-18.104.22.168.tgz from URL...Downloads and copied it to folder /lib/firmware and rebooted the machine. But still it is not detected by the system. Is there any solution to this problem .
i have an Acer aspire 4920 laptop with opensuse11.3 installed and wifi card has identified home wifi, but for some reason when i enter the wpa-psk key it doesnt connect.i have been at this problem for several days and scanning the net for answers, without joy.i dont know about the command or terminal line, i have tried to type in commands but i get no joy.
The funny thing is that it works fine in a Fedora installation, which has an older kernel and older drivers, on the same laptop. The fact that the indicator light doesn't come in when the physical switch is turned on suggests it's something to do with that switch.
I really don't know what I'm doing. I know how to use the command line (though, I'm not often sure EXACTLY what I'm doing with it), I know basically what sudo is. Beyond that I'm pretty lost if you were to ask me to explain any of linux/ubuntu/unix/etc...However. I'm good at following instructions.I have an ancient Toshiba Satellite 1415 laptop.
I've installed Lucid via PXE (see above RE: non-functioning optical disc drive). It was a hassle to do so, but since I've not been able to get this laptop to boot from a usb drive, it seemed the way to go. However, the PXE setup process is not exactly straightforward; therefore I THINK I installed it correctly because most everything else works fine, but I really have no way of knowing.
More preliminaries: As the built-in wireless card in the Laptop has been dead for longer than I care to remember, I'm attempting to use a PCMCIA D-Link DWL-650+ (not a 650 or a 650G or a 650G+) which says that it's supposed to work "out of the box" with the ACX100 driver.
lspci returns the line:
Code: 05:00.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX 100 22Mbps Wireless Interface ifconfig returns info on "eth0" and "lo", the ethernet, and loopback interfaces respectively.It makes no mention of a wlan0 interface.iwconfig reports (correctly) that eth0 and lo have no wireless extentions.[code]..;;
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS. Kernel/architecture is 2.6.32-25-generic i686.This laptop ancient and cheap,so it's definitely 32bit.I've tried following various tutorials for getting an ACX100 based-card to work, but keep running into errors that the tutorial doesn't cover.The main problem seems to be that almost all the info out there is out-dated by about 2 years.The ACX100 project's Wiki at TheSourceForge states, "Ubuntu 9.10 deprecated linux-restricted-modules in favor of DKMS.
I am running Lucid Lynx and have only noticed this problem in the past couple weeks. Before Lucid I ran Jaunty & Karmic on this same box, although I installed Lucid as a clean install. My problem is that up to 5 or 6 times per minute my networking card drops its connection and then has its connection re-established. I have an integrated Intel 82566DC gigabit card on an Intel Motherboard DG35EC connected to a 10/100 network and am running the 64-bit version of Lucid. I've done some considerable searching on this problem and although I've seen many references to similar problems dating back several years, I have found none that seem to have any solutions that do anything for me. I never had this problem under any prior version of Linux on this box (all prior versions were also 64-bit).
In short, this block of messages repeats in my messages log:
May 18 20:18:50 mark-desktop kernel: [10121.062129] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Down May 18 20:18:52 mark-desktop kernel: [10122.730873] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: RX/TX May 18 20:18:52 mark-desktop kernel: [10122.730876] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: 10/100 speed: disabling TSO
Most of the time I don't even see that the connection has gone down. Sonetimes everything seems to be operating fine for a half-hour or more, although it could be dropping out and coming back really quickly all of the time. Sometimes it goes out for 10 seconds.Sometimes it goes out for many minutes and I can get networking back by killing disabling networking and then re-enabling it. It's quite annoying.
I'm sorry if I'm duplicating an existing issue on this forum, but I can't find this exact problem anywhere. Does anyone have any clever ideas about how to fix this?
