Ubuntu Networking :: Realtek RTL8187 Wireless Usb Not Working On Lucid 10.04 ( Hard Blocked )?
May 11, 2010
The device it's properly recognized and iwlist scan even list the networks, but the "activate wifi network" on the network manager on right-top of the screen it's grey and therefore cannot be activated. This seems to be the problem ( rfkill list ouput ):Quote:

this isnt happening on ubuntu but I think this is more or less a kernel problem that could happen with any flavor. After a new install off of a live cd my wireless card is not picking up any signals...i was able to use wireless while using the live cd but now after it has been isntalled to the hard drive it is not working. even tried in terminal to manually look (iwlist wlan0 scan) but it isnt picking up the signal
I have a problem with my internet connection this is the picture the device is Realtek RTL8187. i didn't know how can i manage this device to work so could you help me i don't have an internet connection in ubuntu right know and i really wanna move to ubntu my verison is 9.10
I buy a new usb network adapter (Through DX), when I try to use it in ubuntu or BackTrack4 Final it is working, and connecting networks even with WPA encryption. But after few minuts it stops working totally. It is showing that I'm connected to the AP but web sites do not respond.
Notes: - I have another PCI Wireless adapter which works fine.
- The problematic adapter works great on windows.
- A driver CD came with it, including a linux driver which I wasn't succesfully installed.
- A BackTrack3 Disc came with it, claming by the instructions that the adapter will work with it. I didn't try it because i have backtrack 4 final.
It took me dozens of surfing the web hours, and too many restarts,
I have a Thinkpad E420 with a Realtek 8188ce. I'm having a lot of problems getting the wireless to work. After bumbling with drivers (and installing the correct ones from Realtek), my wireless still won't work. I think it might be because of this:
shayan@shayan-ThinkPad-E420:~$ rfkill list 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: yes
I have a button on my keyboard that is supposed to toggle WiFi, but it doesn't seem to do anything.
Here is my lspci and lsmod:

The Realtek RTL8111 wireless does not work in Mint 10 or Ubuntu 10.10. Works perfectly in Mint 9 and Ubuntu 10.04. No proprietary driver necessary. Has anyone managed to get it working in Ubuntu 10.10? : You can click the one you want to connect to and enter your security key. I just use WEP because it's easy. I enter the key and the system just tries to connect until it times out. You can repeat this process indefinitely. Wired works fine but after any available updates are installed, still no wireless capability.
I've been using a RealTek 8190 PCI wireless card on my desktop in Ubuntu 10.04. The net819xp driver worked fine in ndiswrapper. Then my housemates got a new router and switched our wireless SSID & password. In network manager, I can see the SSIDs, but when I try to connect to our SSID, it continues trying to connect but never does connect. Something related to the router change and router firmware upgrade created this problem and i'm sure i need to fix it on my computer. All my windows7 flatmates are connecting with no problem. Right now I'm using my laptop, so i can't copy & paste results from terminal commands,
does anyone know if the realtek wireless card driver issues have been sorted? It is just so annoying not being able to use Ubuntu on my laptop when all my other PC's are running it.Looks darn good though doesn't it
This is wireless adapter: [URL]... USB/Detail.bok I have 2 AWUS036H Wireless USB adapter that uses the RTL8187 Chipset connected to a USB 2.0 Port. It is very slow when I try to go to websites or download anything using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. The max speed I can get out of it is 135 Kilobytes per second when downloading anything. But when I am on Windows I can max out 2.6 Megabytes per second. I have been trying to find a solution but have found none. When I look at the light on the wireless adapter and compare it to what it looks like on both Ubuntu and Windows. It seems that the wireless adapter light is dimmer on Ubuntu. So I was thinking it was txpower set very low. I changed it but no success on changing speed. I am using WPA2-PSK which obviously uses AES. I have also tested it while it is in WEP and when it is Open with no change in speed. Speed results Ubuntu 10.04: Speed results Windows 7: I changed the settings to Megabytes on those speed results.
Ditching Windows for the last time but this seems to be a issue wireless seems fine for a bit but then the connection slows to around 20kbps or worse. Any ideas what it could be? Using 10.04.1 it says it has a 48mb connection and i have 4 bars.

after having tried out almost all suggestions found here and elsewhere on the internet, i'm somewhat at my wits end The situation: I'm running Kubuntu 32Bit Version (at the mom 10.4) on a HP-Compaq 6735s (AMD Processor, Vanilla 32Bit Install). My first Install was last year with 9.4 and the Broadcom 4322 wireless worked like a charm after installing the proprietary STA-driver under System -> Hardware Drivers. As the update didn't work out really without glitches, i did a fresh install and lost my wireless. I tried various combinations and tutorials but to no avail. My card is found, the driver installed, but i cannot access my access-point. I can SEE the access point (and all my neighbors'), but knetworkmanager does not seem to do anything. To be sure, I installed wicd (nice tool by the way). Trying a connect here told my my credentials were bad (incorrect passphrase for my WPA2 Personal auth), which is not true. I tried connecting without security, didn't get an IP. So it seems somehow the card is working, but all functions needed for passing information to the access-point are unavailable.
This is what I tried:
both broadcom-drivers fw-cutter installing the driver by hand
Installing the driver via Hardware Drivers produced the same results as any other, viz the card is working, but not connecting. Unfortunately knetworkmanagers error messages are a bit sparse, or rather non existant. My guess is that somehow the firmware is not properly loaded (or the wrong type??).
I started on ubuntu 8.10 and my wireless card has always worked,Since i did a fresh install of ubuntu 10.04 it still seems to work to a point.I can see networks, click them and use a password to connect but it never seems to carry on, I typed the password correctly and after a minute it asks for it again.I have read a post about problems other people are having and that i need to install a different program.But i cant install another program if there is no wireless as apt-get doesn't work without internet connection.So... I need to download something that will fix it (possible update if one has been released) to xp (partition) then access xp partition from ubuntu and install it.
I've just completed switching both my laptop and desktop from Ubuntu 10.04 to Kubuntu 10.04, all seems to be working well, except that I can't get my Virgin Mobile HUAWEI E160E wireless broadband modem working. I used to have it working flawlessly in Ubuntu, I've used the smae step as described in this post: [URL] that worked for me with Ubuntu, but the Wireless Broadband tab is greyed out under the manage connections dialog. I'm running the 64-bit version of Kubuntu BTW.
I recently installed 10.04 and everything Just Worked.Before Lucid, I was using 9.04 and had successfully gotten my Broadcom 4306 working perfectly... which is why I think the Lucid install went so perfectly.Well, after a botched hiberation (Dell Inspiron 9100), my wireless is dead in the water.I've tried "ifdown", "iwconfig", "/etc/init.d/network restart" and "force-reload", 'modprobe -r b43'
Terry Polzin on the Fedora list today posted a request for help with getting a Realtek 8188S(U) working. I replied saying that I had a similar device and shared my experiences.
I told him that there is a driver in staging which supports the device, but that Fedora only ships quality working drivers by default, so no staging drivers are included. It's easy enough to get them though, just add the RPMFusion Free repository and install their kmod-staging package which (as the name might give away) includes the staging drivers for the current kernel.
Once you have that installed, the r8192s_usb module can be loaded, but the device still needs external (presumably proprietary) firmware to work. Fortunately, although the driver available from Realtek does not include it, it was included on the disk, and is also available in the Billion driver from their website. So, once you have put the firmware in the right place, the device just works.
Here are the steps to get it working (you will need to have RPMFusion enabled, and run these as root).
The main downside here (apart from the obvious) is that you will be relying on RPMFusion to build an updated kmod-staging version when you get a Fedora kernel update. Sometimes this might not happen before you get your kernel, so when you reboot, you lose your wireless (because there's no driver). If so, boot to your older kernel for a while, or build the driver yourself, or create an akmod instead of kmod.
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0bda:8171 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter this adapter shows up in network manager when connected to computer but doesn't detect network and cant connect to any network I have setup in nm, the adapter works fine in windows and it's supposed to work in linux or do I have to install drivers?
I am brand new to ubuntu (I installed it about 2 hours ago on my new PC). Everything so far has seemed really easy and straight-forward, but I am having problems trying to connect to my wireless network.
I have a Realtek 8185 wireless card, and have the disk with the inf file on it. I installed ndisgtk but when I pointed it to the inf file, I got an "error while installing" message, then it showed up in the list of currently installed drivers in ndisgtk but as an invalid driver. I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong.
I actually have another wireless card in my old PC (a belkin of some sort) - would I be better off using that? I'm using an ethernet cable at the moment and it works absolutely fine, I just plugged it in and off I went.
I have tried ndiswrapper using 32 bit and 64 bit winxp drivers and the 32 bit driver just doesn't work period (as expected.) The 64 bit driver locked the system up completely and I ended up reinstalling ubunto. I have now reinstalled and updated and upgraded ubunto 10 times in the last 3 days of trying to get this to work and need some external!
using Code: lshw -C network
I do see my network card and driver.
Where I am at currently: I have a fresh install of ubunto 10.04 with it upgraded and updated. I do not have ndiswrapper gtk installed and I have not downloaded any drivers for the wireless card.
Im not able to establish a Wireless Internet connection in Ubuntu 10.04.
Ive tried these steps:
1. Wireless Internet did not show via the Network-icon. Only the 2 LAN-gates where shown
2. I installed the Windows Driver (net8185.inf) via ndisgtk package
3. After restarting the computer, 2 LAN-gates and 1 WLAN where listed via the Network-icon
4. Normally WLAN should automatically start scanning for available networks, but that didnt happen
5. When I tried to connect to my own network, the computer tries to connect for 1 minute and than stops because no connection could be established
6. A wired Internet-connection does not give any problems
Details: - I first had Ubuntu 9.10 but I wasnt able to make a WLAN connection either. I followed the same steps. After that I upgraded to 10.04 - iwconfig in Terminal gives an IP-address which consists of 12 identical characters. - lspci in Terminal shows these data: 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
- How to create an Internet connection via my WLAN-card?
- How to install the option to search for available networks automatically?
I recently purchased two MSI Windtop AE2220's. One for my home which uses a router with WPA2 protection and one for my office where I use WEP encryption.
The Realtek internal wireless card will not connect to a WEP router if you are running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I have exhausted all suggestions on this site and all drivers found at Realtek's site.
I have been using Ubuntu since Hardy Heron, but sadly, painfully, I have had to install Windows 7 on my office machine until I find a wireless card compatible with the MSI Windtop AE2220, Lucid and WEP.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L655-S5061 laptop and dual-boot Windows 7 and Kubuntu Lucid Lynx. Windows detects and connects to the wireless network just fine, but in Kubuntu it will detect the network but can't connect to it. Sometimes Network Manager will say it's connected, but Konqueror can't load any websites. Plugging in an ethernet cable doesn't give me access to the internet, either.
I was able to successfully install the drivers on the generic kernel, but I seem to be having a problem getting it done on the real time kernel I downloaded via the Ubuntu Software Center. Here's what shows up when I type in 'make' at the command line:
/driver/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625$ make make ARCH=i386 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/2.6.31-11-rt/build M=/home/marcoharder/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625/driver/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625 modules
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 (natty-64 bit) and my wireless PCI card is not being recognised by default. Previously, when I upgraded to 10.10 I had to go to the Realtek website, download the driver for RTL8185 and install it (following instructions in the readme file) to get my wireless card recognised and working properly. This time around, that approach doesn't seem to work. When I try to install it using "make" I get the following error:
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic-pae/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [all] Error 2

I would hope that the title gives my problem away, but my wireless card is not detecting networks. I'm a total new guy to the Linux world, so please be patient with me. I currently have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on a stock Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965.
