I've been trying to make/compile the driver for a wireless card. The card is usb, it's titled Micronext MN-WD550M and seems to use the rtl8712 driver.Firstly, though I did this once two years ago I seem to have completely forgotten how to install a driver in ubuntu.
Secondly, I'm not sure I have the right driver anyway since in the notes in the readme it says it is for i386 (I run amd 64). The driver is here [URL] Thirdly, after clicking through various readmes and documentation without feeling any more intelligent, I then tried using ndiswrapper to install a windows driver and ubuntu would crash if the usb wireless card was plugged in. Blarg.I feel like this should be so simple I'm going to make a clean installation of ubuntu 10.10 shortly (for various unrelated reasons) so anything I messed up with ndiswrapper should be back to normal.
Running Ubuntu 10.04 Unable to get Ubuntu to find the ASUS USB Wireless to connect for network. I got the Broadcom to work using ndiswrapper but the range on it is unbearable meaning I have to be in the same room as the router. Hoping this has a much better range.
I just got a new Asus Eee 1001P, and the wireless isn't working at all. I had an Asus EEE 1005HA before that and since both use the AR8132 network card I hoped it would be the same problem as with that, where installing the backports fixed the problem. However, that doesn't do anything. With the 1005HA the connection was only flaky and disconnected a lot, but the 1001P doesn't find any networks to connect to at all. Also, the mobile wireless will connect only once and after disconnecting every attempt to reconnect ends in that connection symbol spinning wildly until I tell the network manager to disconnect. On Kubuntu it doesn't even connect once.I never had that problem with the 1005.
installing drivers for my onboard NIC card on my ASUS Nettop EB1007. The NIC is a JMC250 PCI Express GB. I first installed CentOS 5 on it and then it wouldnt show up. So I decided to try installing with Ubuntu and it was perfect. I didnt have to do anything else to get it detected. However, I would like CentOS 5 on this unit to practice on. Below is my attempt to install the kmod-jme-188.8.131.52-2.el5.elrepo.i686.rpm on a fresh CentOS install. Unfortunately, the dependencies are failing.

I am using Linux Mint 8 Helena x64 Edition on Dell Studio 15 laptop which has Dell 1520 Wireless-N Mini Card. It does work when I boot from Live CD of Helena, connect to a wired network and download & install the proprietary drivers when prompted. But on the installed system, I am unable to activate the Broadcom STA driver. I tried completely removing and then reinstalling bcmwl-kernel-source and dkms packages from package manager.When I go to Administration -> Hardware Drivers and click on Activate for Broadcom driver, at first there used to be a window which said Downloading and it used to go away after few seconds and nothing used to happen. Then I installed few updates. At the time of writing, I have installed all the available updates. Now after clicking on Activate, I get this error :
Code: Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for detains: /var/log/jockey.log
for over at week i have been trying to get my wireless card to work now. If i open Additional drivers, the non proprietary driver seems to be working and active. If i deactivate that and use the STA driver instead, it says active, but currently not in use. When i use the non proprietary driver, i can check mark on 'activate wireless', but nothing happens. When i use the STA driver there are no wireless options. I'm not sure if its important, but when i do "sudo lshw -C network" when the STA driver is active but not in use, the network status changes from 'disabled' to 'unclaimed'. When i came here, i tried to install "firmware-b43-lpphy-installer" as the sticky said i should, but the installation fails. It says my card is not supported: "Not supported card here (PCI id 14e4:4727)!"
I know this isn't the place for this but I am having trouble with my wireless with Linux mint but ubuntu forums feels more friendly and knowledgeable about these problems the wireless adapter in question is a HornetTek HT-H5DN I have been to the company website they do have a driver but I can't compile it due to lack of experience it runs on a Ralink 2720 driver.
I've recently bought a Samsung R580 laptop. It is now configured as a dual boot system with Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7 (64bit). The wireless network functions correctly under Win7, but I have encountered problems with Ubuntu. The native drivers do not function and having identified the driver used by Win7 (net819xp.inf) that works, I have tried to install it using ndisgtk, but get the message "incorrect hardware". I have followed the ndiswrapper howto carefully without being able to get the wireless network going.
I recently reinstalled Fedora 15 on my laptop and have been unable to get the wireless driver to work as it has before. I successfully installed the akmod-wl package from rpmfusion, built the akmod successfully, and rebooted with no success.
Right so I just bought an Acer TimelineX with a Broadcom BCM43225 BCM43225 802.11b/g/n WiFi card. With this card I am not able to detect any wireless networks and after googling around I found out other people have had similar issues. But my problem is kind of unique in the sense that I'm using Backtrack as my Linux distribution (I'm not a blackhat or anything, more of an enthusiast with no malicious intentions) Also I'm not a God at Linux so if you have any solutions please be verbose! I tried the following: [URL] But the Makefile spits out a syntax error. (Makefile:29: *** missing separator. Stop.)
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed and can browse the internet via cable, but wireless isnt working. My wireless driver is "Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN".
In the windows device manager, I found the corresponding inf file to be oem20.inf which I tried to install it through "Setup Windows Driver" but it gave an error saying invalid driver. I also tried installing the Broadcom STA driver, but that didnot help.
I am dual booting with Windows 7, and i installed ubuntu through the windows wubi installer. My laptop is HP Pavilion dv4. I have installed the regular Ubuntu desktop and have made all upgrades. The results from lspci command i have added below.
gowda@ubuntu:~$ lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
I have a Rosewill b/g/n wireless USB adapter. I downloaded the source code of the linux driver from Rosewill website. How do I compile the code and then install the driver? I think that I can just type "make" to compile the code, but, how to install the driver after the compilation?
Just made the jump to Ubuntu, and until this install I considered myself very tech savvy. Now not so much! Built my new desktop, loaded Ubuntu 64 bit no problem. But I'm having a terrible time figuring out how to load the native driver for my realtek wireless adapter. I successfully un-tarred the file, and used the terminal to run the make command by using cd command to navigate to the file. It returned a wall of text, and in my mind looked to work. Next I go to run "./clean" in the same file location in the terminal and it returns:
"ERROR: Module r8192s_usb does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_rsl does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_ccmp does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt does not exist in /proc/modules
Not completely sure if this is an issue, I try moving to the next step of instructions issuing the command "insmod 8712u.ko" in the terminal same file location and get the error message insmod: error inserting '8712u.ko': -1 Operation not permitted I've tried running "sudo insmod 8712u.ko" from both that file directory, and from my home file directory. My guess is I'm missing a step or need to be typing these commands in a different file directory in the terminal.
configuring my ASUS USB-N13 Wireless-N Adapter I was able to get the drivers installed as per the instructions I found in the forum but I'm not sure how to get the ASUS USB-N13 Wireless-N Adapter to be recognized by the drivers and how to configure it to connect to the Internet I tried following the instructions it came with but I did not understand the steps to set it up it was like chinese to me no clue what it said I am running Redhat Linux 9.0 on the laptop
How to set up an Asus USB N-13 wireless adapter (when i plug it NOTHING happens (the light on the device doesn't even blink)). I was trying to use this (click me), but i got confused mid way through. I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
It seems with the newer linux headers, two functions changed their names slightly and caused a crash when attempting to build the Asus-provided USB-N13 drivers.
I'm still in the middle of getting the device to work, but actually compiling the driver was a major problem for me and others I've seen that complained of the breakage in 10.10.
Here's the fix: Within the include/os/rt_linux.h and os/linux/rt_usb_util.c files, the usb_buffer_alloc and usb_buffer_free functions are part of an internal macro. These functions do not exist anymore and are replaced by the usb_alloc_coherent and usb_free_coherent respectively. Input parameters did not change, just the names.
The macro is defined in rt_linux.h and the functions are used in a symbol export within rt_usb_util.c. Simply renaming the functions should allow it to build.
As I said, I'm still in the process of getting the wireless to work, just wanted to let everyone know of the quick fix.
This issue will probably be addressed with a macro fix somewhere eventually.
Everytime I to turn on my wireless device, and try to connect to a wireless network, i see the phrase " device not ready" greyed out, and not able to access a wireless network. i do not know what to do
I am recently trying to get a steady wireless connection running. I am currently using the default settings/driver Fedora 13 is stocked with. As my internet browsing is somewhat up and down in load times, I decided to check in a video game which is generally a good test for me. haha I am harshly spiking and cannot find the source of my problem so my guess is a driver issue.
lspci | grep Network:
It is is seemingly right, my Windows 7 harddrive works just fine, this is just one last of the few issues I'm having from fully formatting my winblows HD to use as Linux storage.
I cannot find any native AR5008 Linux Drivers for my card and it has been a frustrating day. I guess I'm not cut to be a network analyst just yet.

I recently purchased an Asus n10 wireless usb adapter to use with my media server, running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx). After spending several hours today with many of the threads (especially this one about the Asus n13) it seems that I've run out of ideas.
My network is running a hidden (non-broadcast) SSID ("Potato") with wpa2 personal encryption.
Here is the relevant information from lsusb:

I downloaded ubuntu 10.10 in my PC alongside with windows 7 yesterday. However it could not detect my wireless LAN then with some hardwork I was able install the wireless device driver but still no internet!
I have a Alfa AWUS036NH that I have downloaded the lastest drivers from Alfa. I have read for 3 days straight and tryed so many fixes I cant remember them all. My problem is that it connects then after about 15 minutes the connection degrades and i have to unplug and replug in and then it goes down sooner each time. I have edited the black list and blacklisted all the 2870 chipsets as mine has 3070 chipset. once i edited the blacklist I can no longer boot into linux unless I unplug my Alfa (usb) and then once I am into the UI I can plug it back in but the wirless management client up by the top right of my screen that came with ubuntu no longer sees the card and when I do the show devices command from a terminal it doesn't show the adapter either. I also have a wired eth0 that works and a wireless wlan0 thats an internal Aethros that works. After blacklisting though it no longer shows it's name in the wireless manager but does show the connections. I am getting errors when trying to compile the manufactors drivers. I have renamed the 2 files as per several posts and still errors. I have read it works if you load the intel 2200 drivers. I got the compiler and everything but am missing the ieee80211 wireless what evers to compile and make it work. I am at wits end at what to do now to fix it.
Im a newb to ubuntu just wiped my brand new asus 1001p netbook of windwos 7 and put ubuntu netbook remix on it 9.10....Everything works great except the wireless...I know theres probally a billion topics on this, but i just need step by step easdy to follow guide on how to do this...I asked the IT at my work and he claims it cant be done, unless i switch out the internal wireless to a card that "just works", which im not comfortable with or use a usb wireless stick, which defeats the purpose of a netbook being so small....Im sure this can be done so please help me show up a IT that doesnt know linux .BTW the wireless card is a atheros thats all i know..
i installed ubuntu on my netbook after having a successful install on my asus g51 laptop.
everything works fine except the wireless. for some reason the netbook wont pick up internet via the ethernet connection so i went and got the drivers via synaptic and copied the packages plus the dependencies required (just needed one - dkms). dkms installed fine, but there was an error when i tried to install bcmwl-kernel-source. ubuntu still sees it as installed tho looking in ubuntu software center.
i rebooted just for shits and giggles, cuz it still didnt work. no dice. then i tried to check in that section that shows drivers that arent allowed in a default install as per another thread. its not in there.
my situation doesnt let me connect this netbook via wire and the only way i can get software for it is to download it via my ubuntu connection on my laptop.
I need some help getting my wireless card working.I have a ASUS PCE-N13 and I'm running ubuntu 10.10 AMD64.I have confirmed that the card works running under win xp.The problem I have is that it can't see any available networks.I have downloaded and compile the latest driver from ASUS rt2860sta 184.108.40.206 and added these lines to the blacklist file.
My Asus k52 BBR9 was working great with Meerkat until I put in all the updates.Now it won't recognize my wireless: it says were connected and the icon is clear or it is dark or has the icon look pulsing where there is my connection. But I can't get online.
I have been using ubuntu troublefree for some month, but yesterday, suddenly the wireless internet connection stopped working. It happened after i used the turn off wireless network shortcut, now i cant turn it on again (usually this works fine).The situation is now, that when i click on the tray icon showing connection it says, wired network disconnected (it never said this before), then if i click on the wireless shortcut it also says wireless disconnected... But if i click again it doesnt show connections, the disconnected sign just disappears...?
