I am a complete novice with Ubuntu trying it with a "Live CD" on a Compaq Presario 1700 (P3/700MHz/512MB) with a LinkSys "Wireless-G Notebook Adaptor with SRX400" (Model WPC54GX4 - using Windows drivers LSSRX4.bin & LSSRX42.sys, Airgo Networks Version 18.104.22.168).The PWR" and "Link" lights are "ON".This card works fine with WinXP.I have tried to set it up using the Network Tools and "editing" data into the "Network Manager Applet" (entered SSID, and a "WPA & WPA2 Personal" password), but no improvement.
My first Ubuntu/Mythbuntu install. Installed OS, plugged in linksys wireless G adapter. It finds the network but cannot connect. Discovered wireless priviledges while setting up admin/user accounts. Should be ready to go. or not, I'm thinking it needs a driver but
1) in linux? certainly not in Fedora.
2) If it can see the network it doesn't need a driver,
My settings are wrong or I'm missing something. SSID is set in settings. Do I need mac address and BSSID?
My old ubuntu laptop beeps 3 time on startup and then freezes. This forced me to install 10.04 on a new laptop. Now I can't get the linksys wpc54gs ver 2 to get connect. I can see the router with a padlock by it. I pretty sure I have the correct password in the right spot. I can access the internet with the wire connection. I'm sure it something simple I forgot from before when the card was working in the old laptop.
i cant connect to my wireless network... im using karmic. Ive searched and found quite a lot of threads but arent sure where to start. I have a Linksys wusb600n, and are trying to connect to my network. It detects the network fine but doesnt connect.
I've tried it using the Ubuntu 9.10 live CD (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) and while the adapter can see wireless networks, it can't connect to them. It asks me for my WPA2 key, but after trying to connect for about 30 seconds it asks me for it again. I've read other threads about this issue but they were kind of confusing.
I just need to know whether the adapter will work and if so, how to get it to connect. I'm so sick of Windows and I'd love to switch to Linux, but I won't be able to if I can't get my adapter to work.
Edit: I just noticed the sticky about posting wireless tickets. I'm sorry, I don't have time to post it right now, but I will post all of that information when I get back.
I have an Acer Aspire 1 Netbook - this is running UBUNTU- When I try to connect to my Linksys Router in wireless mode it asks for password - but doesnt accept. I can see the Linksys in network manager plus several other networks in the vicinity. My other wireless devices all connect O.K. to the Linksys, and accept my password.. I can hard wire by ethernet to the netbook. Just wireless is the problem
My OS is Linux Xubuntu 11.04 (32 bits) and I'm trying to get Linksys Wusb600n network adapter to work. I followed this post and did all that was written in it... almost. When i came to blacklisting, I blacklisted all drivers that starts with rtx (where x is any digit). Here are lines that I pasted in blacklist.conf:
The problem: I do see all available networks. So I guess... it somehow works. Anyway, problem is that it does not connect successfully to my network. I click on it - it asks my password. I enter it and click 'Connect'. Nothing, except that network icon is started to like spin around (trying to connect, I guess), happens. After few minutes, it asks for password.... again. I enter it and all starts from the beginning. Its like a loop! Note: I don't have any other things installed except linux-firmware-nonfree_1.9_all.deb and, don't know how successfully, but RT3572USB 22.214.171.124.
i installed ubuntu 10.04 from internet.but i cant connect to my wireless router linksys wrh54g ver 1.0,but if i using Local area connection its working,however my wireless connection working in my other os win xp.
Linksys WUSB54GP Not Found, Can't Connect to Wireless - 10.04 Lucid Lynx
I am having a problem setting up my wireless on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) on my desktop computer using a Linksys Wireless-G Portable USB Adapter WUSB54GP.
The wireless has run fine on my Thinkpad X60s laptop running Lucid and with my desktop and the same USB adapter in Karmic (9.10). When I installed Lucid as an upgrade on the desktop, I could not see the adapter listed at all and could not connect wirelessly to the internet.
if I need to install drivers, edit a file, or do something else to get this working I couldn't find anything useful to actually solve my problem after searching for a while.
This should be all the important desktop system specs: Linksys Wireless-G Portable USB Adapter WUSB54GP -- not found; can't connect to wireless internet Lucid Lynx 10.04 (straight install from CD from Canonical)
I have a similar problem with Uverse wireless.I need to load 9.04 from CD. Then to connect to ATT Uverse. Windows computers have no problem getting on the wireless network.I normally use WPA TKIP on 802.11g. It never works on my ATT 2wire router but has no problem with a cheap Frys Wireless G router. I can see all the ATT wireless networks in my area.
I recently tried to install Crunchbang on my IBM Thinkpad T20 laptop. Everything went OK as far as I can tell (I still have to adjust acpi and display settings), but I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet via wireless (wired connection works fine). I've done a good deal of searching online, and I realize that my wireless adapter (wpc54gs, bcm4318 chipset) is problematic in linux, and that b43-fwcutter is typically required. I did install b43-fwcutter, and it seemed to install OK, but nothing subsequently happened when I opened networkmanager. I'm not sure at this point if my problem is that I don't know how to configure any wireless adapter in crunchbang, or if it is that my particular adapter is not being recognized.
I'm trying to connect to a friend's Linksys WAG160N router using Ubuntu 10.10, but it's just refusing to connect. I can connect to other wireless networks fine - it seems to just be this router. The wireless indicator applet thing shows that I'm trying to connect, but the password box always just pops up again and again. I'm certain I've got the password correct and am able to connect under OSX on the same computer. Connecting to it via ethernet also works fine.
I have loaded ubuntu 9.10, and am not getting internet from my router using a linksys EG1032. I have found articles stating that i should use the sk (URL...) or nge URL...)drivers. According to the instructions i found, they require that i make changes to my kernel config. I do not know how to do that, or if doing so is wise.If someone would help me figure out how to connect this NIC card.
Previously I had my desktop hooked up to a nearby router via an ethernet cord with my parents' computer having a wireless usb adapter to connect (This thing: [uRL]). We just moved and our setup has reversed (router is near their computer, I am using the usb adapter). I just installed the latest Ubuntu and now I can't get the usb adapter to work. I'm very new to Linux and I have no idea what to do. I think this is the same usb adapter.
I just bought Linksys WAG160N ADSL 2+ Router and modem device. It came with an setup installation CD which is not running on ubuntu. In the manual it is written that it will run only under windows and Mac OS. I have only Ubuntu on my laptop.
I need to run the setup CD to go ahead. I searched more than three hours to find out how to run this CD so that I can complete the setup of my new modem-router but did not find any solution.
I think lightning may have killed it. It was working fine. Now I cant get it recognized no matter what I do. It also quit working in Win XP where I never had a problem with it because it had its own connection software.

I have a linksys wireless-b wmp11 network card. Can anyone tell me how to get this up and running? Maverick is up to date as of yesterday and I have the cd that came with the card. I have no way to access the internet on the machine. I am typing this from my laptop.
Here is the situation: I am currently running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit. I'm trying to get my Linksys AE1000 to run correctly. I have followed many tutorials but most notably was:[URL].. lsmod shows that rt3572sta is loaded. network manager in gnome is able to find my router. my problem occurs when it tries to connect to the router using wpa2 security. It continually asks for the wireless password then will freeze the system after a number of attempts. After digging in for a bit, I was able to dig out a dmesg trapping the error:
BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffcfb0138af1ec IP: [<ffffffffa021c7e8>] Cntl0idRTBssidProc+0x78/0x570 [rt3572sta] PGD 0 Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP last sysfs file: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu7/cache/index2/shared_cpu_map CPU 2
I really don't see the need to continue on with those error messages lsmod still shows rt3572sta after the failure. In case anyone wants to see the changes I have made to the files before the make, I have included them. but changed the extension to "txt" to accommodate the up-loader and my rt_linux is too big to fit here, just not that it was 2 lines that were changed to work with the kernel. If anyone wants to know what I mean by the system freezes, I do mean just that. The mouse will continue to work, but I am then unable to open any programs, unable to reboot the computer. it requires a hard reset.
I have uninstalled the drivers, installed them, make them, make install them, make clean, start from scratch a few times, and am getting no give here.
I am dual booting XP and Ubuntu 10.10 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6410 and I have a Linksys WRT120N router connected to my Modem.
So the weird thing is, under XP I can use the internet while connected to my router. Under Ubuntu I can't use the internet while connected to my router. But I can use the internet in Ubuntu if I connect to my neighbor's router called "linksys". So something happens when I connect to my router that makes Ubuntu not able to access the internet. But if I'm connected to my Neighbors router or if I use XP while connected to my router I can use the internet.
I have been using Ubuntu for about a year, so I'm getting better but still a noob. I've tried to figure out what's going on by looking at other forums and posts and trying to see if anyone has solved this. So far I've had no luck. This is also the first of many problem I have encountered that I have been unable to solve using online posts, and is the first problem that I have had to resorted to creating a post to try and fix.
I couldn't find any details on how to do this on Ubuntu, so I figured I'd share for anybody who needs to do that. I got this adapter from a garage sale, it's meant for use with vonage service, it has a web interface with disabled voice tab, and a hidden voice admin page. My goal was to access (unlock) those pages, so that I can use it with one of the free sip providers.
The main thread on how to do this is over at bargainshare forums, the only thing I'm adding here is how to do it on Ubuntu as opposed to windows:[URL]... I will write the simplist path using typical defaults, if your setup deviates or if one of the steps below fails, please refer to the original guide at this link to sort things out. Important note: the pc used in the procedure shouldn't be connected to the internet. Internet access is only needed to get files, programs and instructions, either before using the pc for this procedure, or through a separate pc.
Adapter setup:Do NOT connect the adapter to the internet especially if it has been out of service for a while. Connect an ethernet cable to one of the lan ports on the adapter and in a browser go to 192.168.15.1, this is the default lan gateway address. When prompted to log in use admin/admin again that's the default First thing needed is to flash a special unlocking firmware that allows the adapter to acquire clear text configuration file (as opposed to the encrypted vonage one). After downloading the unlocking firmware from guide above, go to the Administration page then the tab for flashing firmware. Select the firmware file you just saved and let it flash, you'll be prompted to log in, I used user/7756112 , more can be found in the guide, if successful, you'll get a message to that effect. Now firmware version should be 1.7.02 and voice 2.09 LId Next we need to get the adapter to get our configuration file, create one as mentioned in the guide above, meister_sd method, put the file in a folder of your choice, we'll need to use that as our tftp root folder later Now we configure the adapter to talk to the pc, under the setup page of the adapter set "Internet Connection Type" to Static IP and assign the adapter a static IP address, e.g. 192.168.1.88, then set the default gateway and DNS1 to a static IP address that you'll later assign to your PC, make sure it's on the same subnet as the IP address you assigned to the adapter, e.g. 192.168.1.99, save the changes Switch the ethernet cable to the wan port of the adapter, so it's connected directly to the pc, no crossover cable needed in my experience, turn off the adapter until we setup the pc
PC setup:First we need dnsmasq package from synaptic. This package can provide dns, dhcp, read only tftp daemons, outstanding piece of software. during the installation, it will automatically start with it's default settings. we'll shut it down so that we can start it with different command line options:
Code: sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq stop Now we configure the pc to act as a gateway and dns server temporarily, System->Preferences->Network connections , then edit the ethernet interface we're using to connect to the adapter, under IPv4 settings, set the method to manual, then add an address entry with the IP address used on the adapter for dns and gateway, ie 192.168.1.99 and gateway and dns as 127.0.0.1 Now we need to start the dns and tftp daemons:
I really need to get a linksys wpc54g version 4 pcmcia card to work....i have never really had a lot of problems with wireless and thit is a friends laptop that he wanted ubuntu on......if i cant get it to work he will go back to windows and i would not like that to happen lol....here is the output of dmesg and ifconfig lspci and lspcmcia..
Code: thomas@thomas-laptop:~$ dmesg [ 0.000000] Initializing cgroup subsys cpuset [ 0.000000] Initializing cgroup subsys cpu [ 0.000000] Linux version 2.6.31-20-generic (buildd@palmer) (gcc version 4.4.1
This problem is fixed in the upcoming kernel, 2.6.34. You can either wait until Canonical releases the update, or download, build and install the 2.6.34 kernel manually. The instructions to do so are HERE. It's fairly easy.I'm having a problem on Lucid (amd64) with a Linksys WUSB54Gv4 usb wifi adapter. After some time (varies between ~10 mins to a few hours), the connection is lost. However, in my case I can't connect back. It tries to establish the connection, then pops up the dialog asking for the WEP key again. It will do this repeatedly, not ever connecting back.This is basically how the disconnect looks in dmesg:Quote:

Okey I have a good start i know there is something I'm missing. After Following this great help tutorial.[URL]..And kinda guestimating and messing around with my Linksys creating a new router assigning a static ip "Lan and wireless" address. configuration for the router looks like this.
I think I might be messing up the interface config file at the "NETWORK" section but i don't know.
