Ubuntu Networking :: Dell WLAN Card - Ethernet Port Does Work
Jul 28, 2010
I have a Dell WLAN 1397 Half Minicard, 802.11 b/g card in my laptop, and I can't seem to get ubuntu to work with it. I tried this method:
1. Synaptic Pack Manager
2. Check "Install from Boot Disc"
4. Install and apply bcmwl-kernel-source
This didn't work for me, so I tried entering sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source and that also didn't work. Another thing I tried is formatting my Ubuntu partition and reinstalling, and retrying both of those methods. The ethernet port does work, however.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop using Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN Mini-card (This is what Windows Vista says I have). I have installed Ubuntu as dual boot with existing Windows Vista. Wireless is not working in Ubuntu but working flawlessly in Windows.

I just installed 9.10 on a brand new Dell Vostro 1520. The WLAN card does NOT work out of the box.
Here is what you have to do. After install and rebooting insert the live CD Go to software sources (system > software sources)and check the "officially supported restricted copyright" box You are then asked to update the available software list, do so. You will receive an error message since you are not (yet) connected to the internet and all the other repositories are not available.
Now you should be notified that restricted drivers are available, if not you can go to system > hardware. Anyway, now you should be able to activate the Broadcom STA driver. After rebooting you can connect to available wireless networks.
Alternative (in case you are not asked, which happened to me on another Vostro system) system>administration>syaptic package manager Search for broadcom Mark b43-fwcutter and bcmwl-kernel-sources for installation Reboot (who said there is no rebooting required in linux) The adapter should be up and running ...
I have a Dell Latitude D800 with a Dell Wireless 1350 (802.11b/g) WLAN miniPCI Card. I need to install wireless on this laptop but I see no wireless card when I know I have the above wireless card. Here are some commands that I ran that I might prove useful:
My Dell Vostro 1520's Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card must not have been set-up correctly, as the Network Manager won't even let me select the wireless tab. Please just explain to me, step by step, what exactly I must do to make it work! Additionally, I can't figure out how to disable my Touchpad's Tap to Click funtionality, which must be done if I'm to effectively use my current KDE installation of openSUSE
I'm running an ubuntu maverick server, and I'm having a slight problem with networking. I've only got one ethernet line running into my room, and I've got loads of computers. The server has 2 ethernet ports, one integrated into the motherboard, one on a PCI card that I took from my old server. The on board ethernet never worked on my old server- but I only tried it out post-install, it was hooked up to the card during install (For the record, networking on linux has *never* worked for me if I installed then plugged in the networking stuff after the fact). So I just used the card instead. Transferred the hard drive into a new machine, and lo and behold, it would only work after I transferred in the card from the old one. What I wanted to set up is a basic NAT system, where the network connection is routed through from my server to my main desktop- but when I run ifconfig, my card is not detected, just lo and eth0. How can I fix this?
I created a wireless ad hoc network using network manager. That was simple. I have friend who doesn't have a wireless card, and still would like to join the LAN. It would be nice if he could have a different IP address Is this possible?
Can not get Ubuntu 11.04 to recognize my Dell 1390 Mini Card WLAN. IT works fine with a Ethernet connection but does not find my WLAN. Can someone please offer so much desired help? I have a Inspiron 1521 with an AMD 64X Processor.
I installed ubuntu 10.10 and everything worked fine for two days (and I fell in love with linux) but now I can not connect to a wireless connection. Did I mention I am new to linux and have been working on this problem for a couple of days. My wireless card is 1395 WLAN Mini-Card I think I have the b43 driver installed. I have reinstalled the driver and linux but to no effect.
I have had some problems with a SATA DVD drive under installation of Slackware 12.2, [URL] So i tried 13.1 instead. But now the ethernet card is not working Its a VIA Rhine card, and it was recognized just fine under 12.2 The following command did nothing: Code: ifconfig eth0 up I am getting no errors. I have also tried using netconfig, no luck there either.
By upgrading to latest kernel(2.6.31-22) the card was recognized but it still doesn't quite work. I'm not that good at this but I'll paste some stuff that I think is related to solving a problem such as this.
i have installed red hat 5.1 on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop.It is not detecting any ethernet card.driver is marvel yukon 88E8040So far i found this package to be installed kmod-sk98lin-PAE-10.70.7.3-2.el5.elrepo.i686.rpm but it is showing me the dependencies problems..
My wireless device is an integrated Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card, I am unsure about the driver I have in use. I am sure I have a driver installed because the configuration screen shows my network. I currently have the computer plugged into my network via CAT 5 but I would like to be able to use the wireless (obviously.) I am using Open SuSE version 11.2 and I have run the updater. I could not see my wireless network before running the updater and I can now so I know that the updates have helped but I am again stuck. I have tried to search the wireless forum and I have tried to tinker with the settings in YaST , but nothing seems to be working. Reading the Welcome page of the wireless forum, I tried the Broadcom chip-set advice:
I have read and taken to heart the advice given for receiving help and if any more is needed I will gladly give it. I have a small amount of experience with SuSE Enterprise edition so I can understand some technical stuff but I am best at following specific instructions.
I patched my wireless driver in order to support packet injection. Using this tutorial:
- Install the Firmware:
- Create new directory:
- Now disconnect Internet and unload all your driver (use rmmod command)
- Move/copy the Compat-Wireless patched in /usr/src/drivers directory and unpack the drivers:
Blacklist the wl driver: (STA driver)
Currently I'm running Ubuntu 10.10, Kernel 2.5.35-29-generic. I have a Broadcom 4318 for my WLAN and a Broadcom 4401-B0 for my ethernet. I followed the tutorial and I managed to get packet injection working on my WLAN; however, my ethernet connection isn't working. I tried sudo modeprobe b44, but I get the following message:
i have an embbeded hardware that uses bootp for booting from a Network Managemnt Host (NMH)on the same ethernet. The embedded hardware has both kind of ports i.e ethernet as well as E1/T1. I would like ask, what do i require to establish a communication-link between the embedded hardware and the NMH throuh E1/T1 ports of embedded hardware, so as to make it boot through from E1/T1. Further, NMH possesses only ethernet port. Just to refine my questions i'd like to know what additions do i need to do on my NMH , like may be i have to put an E1/T1 port or is it possible that the E1/T1 port can be directly connected to an ethernet port on the other host.
pardon me if i am not making absolute sense here as my knowledge is limited on Layer 1 and layer 2.
installing ndiswrapper. I've used Windows all my life and I just made the jump to Ubuntu a couple days ago, install native drivers for my card, but at the end of the list of like 25 packages there are 4 packages that won't install because they all say they have dependencies upon each other. Now, I'm trying ndiswrapper and I don't understand it in the least little bit... I know I'm an utter noob, but the OS seems amazing, I'd just like to connect to the internet with it. Even the ethernet port doesn't work! :/
i installed suse (KDE) on my old notebook and now I'm trying to get the wlan to connect to our router and can't figure out how to get it to work. My card seems to work, the network manager even finds the router, but i just cant get a connection. I followed the steps of the "Getting Your Wireless to Work" thread and these are the results:
- i messed around a bit with the network settings and might have cluelessly broken something (or broken it more)
- i tried a usb-wlan-card as an alternative, which didn't work either, but could possibly have messed things up even more.
I am using a dell laptop which has Dell 1397 802.11B/G Wireless Mini Card. I not able to connect to internet and was not able to detect what actual problem is weather card is not supported (i.e. drivers are not available) .
Also, if any one can point to exact process to connect to wireless Lan using fedora12.
specific Ubuntu supported WLAN PCI-cards? This link shows a list of supported PCI-cards, but which is best: [URL] And the installation needs to be easy! I�ve tried installing these PCI-cards in my computer, useing Linux drivers, NdisWrapper, etc. Unforutately without any success:
- DWL-G510, Ralink Chipset, Ralink RT2561/RT61
- Realtek Semiconductor, RTL-8185 IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Controller
I have bought a new laptop with win7 on it , I delete win7 and install ubuntu64 everything is ok but my wireless card won't work ( it is recognized) and even I can connect to INTERNET but nothing is download or upload so I have bought another usb wireless card but now when I connect this new card to my laptop it still tries to use the old one and so I could not connect to internet
I'm a new user of Ubuntu and I think I need some help but let me mention before that I got this up working on a Debian system.My current kernel version is $ uname -r 2.6.32-27-generic.The problem is that my wlan card is not working any more such that my system freezes every time I enable networking with the hardware switch on my laptop.Therefore I bought a USB - WLAN stick and try to get this working.
Network Manager has the option "enable wireless" greyed out if I disable the hardware switch.If I enable the hardware switch and remove the module of my wlan CARD before (modprobe -r iwl3945) it says "wireless disconnected" for all networks.
Am having intermittent connectivity issues with my stock Atheros AR5212 on my Thinkpad X61 using Ubuntu 10.04. Am wondering if there is a known to be good b/g min-PCIe card that I can replace my AR5212 with that would be more solid in Ubuntu?
I have an HP Pavillion Elite HPE computer I just got for a server. It has an internal gigabyte on the mother board and I put in one pci express trendnet teg-ectx eternet card in before installing. It is using the realtek 8169 chip. I had the local network on this card and the pubic static ip on the built in ethernet port eth0. After the intstall of debian 5.07 32 bit I couldn't get the eth0 pubic access to work. I can't get into the server with sftp or ssh and openssh has been installed and I can get into it locally on the local network.
I then installed a second ethernet card the same as the local network card. Now the pubic is on the which is eth1 and the local is eth2. I can ping out to [URL] but I can't get into the server on the eth1 using ssh and I have a iptables firewall and I turned it off and I stll can't get in. I am thinking that the eth1 card I added after the install doesn't have the driver or something. nothing is hooked up to eth0 right now.
I have been using FC10, it works well with wlan for sometime and goes inactive after some time and hence network goes unavailable. Even after few attempts to reconnect doesn't help. Rebooting helps in bringing it back temporarily.
I am running 11.04 on a Dell Inspiron 1501 (the first gen.). I was using my Ethernet port to connect to the internet until about two weeks ago - suddenly the system no longer recognised that port even existed and just kicked me offline. I am able to get online now with a wireless card (replaced the broadcom card, that was a whole different can of worms...).
why my system is unable to connect with the Ethernet port? If I plug in the cable nothing happens.
