Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth - Disabled

Feb 3, 2011

I'm new to ubuntu. Recently installed 10.10 on my dell inspiron 1546. The bluetooth does not seem to be working. In the bluetooth preferences window it says "bluetooth is disabled" and pressing the "turn on bluetooth" does nothing.

lsusb shows nothing.
hciconfig -a shows nothing.

Bluetooth is enabled and working in windows 7 with up to date drivers.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Inspiron 15r (n5010) Wireless Disabled?

Sep 30, 2010

i have to say that i'm not too familiar with Ubuntu... or Linux in general . I've installed it once, just to test it out but I didn't know how to use it so i just reinstalled windows. The other night, i was bored and decided i wanted to re-try Ubuntu and to my suprise, i found Wubi. I love ubuntu now and i made the decision to permanently switch over to ubuntu.

At first, my wireless wasn't working, but there was a quick fix. All i had to do was go to the Synaptic Package Manager, Reload, and search for "Broadcom." I installed the Broadcom STA Wireless driver and i was online within a couple of minutes. I then played around for a couple of hours before turning my laptop off. But, this morning, when i turned it back on...I coudlnt' connect. When i click the little connection icon in the top right, i see the message "Wireless is disabled".

There is a key on my computer that turns the wireless card on or off, and i have tried it. It doesn't work. I have reinstalled the broadcom driver and it doesn't work. I've rebooted...And it doesn't work. I don't know enough about linux to get a solution and every other solution i find on the internet doesn't work.

I have seen in other threads that you guys usually ask for a a couple of things from the user. ifconfig and the sudo lshw -C network so i have included them below. I also looked into the ubuntu help documentation and it told me to do the lspci command.

ifconfig

Code:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr a4:ba:db:d1:61:c2
inet addr:192.168.1.68 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::a6ba:dbff:fed1:61c2/64 Scope:Link

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid - Wireless Button Controls Bluetooth / Shows "wireless Is Disabled"?

Jun 22, 2010

So, after installing Lucid wireless doesn't work for me. When I click on the network icon on the status bar, it shows "wireless is disabled".

With that message, I press the wifi button on my HP laptop and it turns off my blue-tooth, without changing the status of my wifi.

I found this rfkill command in another thread:

Before doing anything, after bootup:

Code:
$ rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom BCM4312 Dell Studio - Built In Wireless Card - 'disabled' And No Longer Works

Jun 10, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu x64 on my dell studio 1535 using the windows installer (wubi).

All seems to be working fine apart from the built in wireless card, the proprietary driver (found in hardware drivers) installs and activates successfully and works perfectly. Until I shut down or restart the system. On the next boot the wireless card is 'disabled' and no longer works.

The card I have is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g

I am going to try a proper install on a second partition rather than using wubi later on but wondered if this was a commonly occuring problem?

The wireless card works as soon as the driver installs, however I am shown a "restart to activate driver" message and after restarting it's dead.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Disabled In 10.10?

Feb 17, 2011

I have been unable to use Bluetooth since I did a clean install of 10.10. It worked before, so I know I have the hardware.

The default manager has a button to turn on bluetooth, but it doesn't do anything. I downloaded Blueman but get a message that "Bluez daemon is not running, blue-man manager cannot continue."

I've tried a few different inquiries, but I'm not sure what they mean:

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Is Disabled On 9.10?

Jul 16, 2010

I cannot seem to enable my wireless connection in 9.10. I know that the connection WAS WORKING maybe a month or so ago. However, 99% of the time I am wired.I am using a BCM4312 It shows up in lspci The drivers are loaded (wl, lib80211 and lib80211_crypt_tkip) If I look at System->Administration->Hardware Drivers the Broadcom STA driver is active. dmesg says that the interface is eth1 but then moves it to eth2 If I click on the network icon in the panel I have options for connecting to eth0 (wired lan which works fine) but under "Wireless Networks" it says "Wireless is disabled" in gray.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Is Disabled - Won't Enable

Aug 4, 2010

So I have been trying to connect my Wiimote up to my PC using the following HOWTO: [URL]... I had it working last week and for some reason it has now stopped working. I am using a USB Bluetooth dongle and I am sure that it is still working because I can connect the Wiimote up to my laptop no problem. What I have noticed is that on my Laptop the bluetooth icon is highlighted and on my PC although the Icon is there it is greyed out. When I go to preferences and click on turn on Bluetooth the button greys out for a while and then comes back saying "Turn Bluetooth on" again.

Ubuntu Networking :: Source Of Disabled Wireless?

Jun 28, 2010

My wireless was working fine for about a year using 9.10 until I installed an update about May 28 2010. After that my HP laptop did not recognize any wireless routers including my Netgear. In early June I upgraded to 10.04. My HP laptop has: product: AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter vendor: Atheros Communications Inc. Dose the following apply when looking for the source of my disabled wireless found at: [URL]

Setting wireless regulatory domain via module option no longer supported. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS enables the CRDA wireless regulatory framework for controlling which wireless channels are usable and visible in a particular location. If you previously had to use the module option similar to that below in /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf to allow access to certain channels in your locality then you may find that wireless will not function at all: options cfg80211 ieee80211_regdom=EU You should remove this kernel module option on upgrade from releases earlier than Ubuntu 9.04 and use the iw*reg command instead. (This change was made in Ubuntu 9.04.) Here are the results for the Code sudo lshw -C network

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Internet Is Disabled?

Aug 16, 2010

I realize this seems like a repeat question (and it probably is). I have been searching for a solution to my issue on the forums/web for a few hours to no avail. I have a Compaq f700 with Vista. I am sick of Vista. I installed Ubuntu today. Looking forward to using it more. However I am having problems with the internet.

My wireless internet is on the on setting, however, the light will not switch from orange to green (if I load Vista instead, the light changes). Broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311], It says my wireless is disabled. I can not figure out how to enable it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled - How To Re-enable

Aug 22, 2010

We're on vacation here with free wifi and I brought two laptops. The older of the two laptops running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Broadcom wireless chip suddenly wouldn't work this morning. I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.

What can I do?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled / Enable This?

Sep 10, 2010

I updated from Ubuntu 9 to 10 some while ago and can no longer connect to the internet via wireless. The computer is a Medion 96290 with a USB wireless card. Running "lsusb" gives code...

This tells me a driver is installed but it may not be the correct one. I copied this driver from the Windows driver file.

Network Manager shows "Wireless Network" greyed out and "wireless is disabled".

WICD shows net8187b as the installed driver and that the hardware is present.

There is a wireless switch on the keyboard which it was not necessary to use in Ubuntu 9 and is inoperative in Ubuntu 10.

I have searched through and applied many suggestions without success and have posted this problem on a couple of forums, again without success.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP G50 Wireless Disabled Was Working?

Jan 6, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 latest updates on a HP G50 laptop. It was working fine but would never auto connect to wireless. I would have to select the wireless from the top menu and connect to a network. However I disabled it once and tried to re-enable but ran into a problem. The Enable Wireless was grey and would not allow me to enable.

Have searched google and tried lots of solutions and none worked. I even reinstalled and still have the problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP Pavilion Wireless Enable/Disable Button / "Wireless Disabled By Hardware Switch"?

May 11, 2011

I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.

I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.

Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.

As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience.
----
EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working.
-----
EDIT 2:
found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty
seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.
