Fedora Networking :: Compaq Presario C700 Wireless - Cannot Connect To The Internet

Mar 17, 2010

I installed Fedora 12 on my Compaq Presario c700 Notebook recently and had a great install. I installed ndiswrapper and installed the inf file for my broadcom 4311 driver through ndiswrapper as well. The installation of the driver appeared to go smoothly.

The only thing is that I still cannot connect to the internet. I aliased the driver as well to wlan0. I can not figure out what is currently the problem. I tried reinstalling the driver and I keep receive a message stating the driver is already installed.

SUSE / Novell :: 11.2 With HP-Compaq 6510b - Wifi Not Working ?

May 24, 2010

When I installed opensuse 11.2 on my notebook i found my broadcomm 4312 wlan card in the hardware list, but it's not working. I probed different ways to solve the problem.

I found these methods: [url]

I tested them all.

I'm afraid this is not enough, because the wlan led is not lighting. Every extra button works well such as volume buttons, but the wlan button does not working, so i can't switch on the wlan.

General :: Wifi Device Isnt Working On Compaq Mini 110 - Mint 10

Mar 26, 2011

I am brand new to linux and i am finding it really frustrating cause i always thought i had quite a knack for computers. ive looked online and searched a bunch of stuff but because im so new to linux i am having a hard time even understand some of the stuff. i really want to get comfortable/fluent with linux and unix and what not.

My netbook model is HP Compaq Mini 110 the distribution i am using is Linux Mint 10

My broadcom wifi device isnt working or something.

When i first installed mint, it said that i needed non-free drivers?

The ethernet cable instantly gave me connection and i was able to run updates but the wifi still doesnt work i think the updates only updated the free ones and not the non-free ones cause i dont remember ever specifying to download the non free ones how do i manually specify to download all available updates?

I also typed:

The output says:

Also when i right click on the little network sign on the bottom right corner, then it says "Wireless Networks device not read (firmware missing)"

Ubuntu Networking :: Compaq W200 Wireless Card On N610c Not Working?

Jan 3, 2010

I have a Compaq n610c laptop equipped with a w200 wireless card on the lid of the laptop. Works fine on XP. I recently formatted the HDD and installed Ubuntu 9.10. Wired network works fine and I've updated to the latest updates etc...However wireless won't work. I've followed the instructions onhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...ice/CompaqW200. Everything was going fine until I have to compile. I tried the make command and get the following.

On friday (5-28-10) I installed ubuntu 10.04 Lucid, and everything was just peachy, wireless worked and everything.Today (saturday 5-29-10) booted up to find that my wireless wouldn't work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Ethernet Not Working On Compaq Presario 6310

Jun 13, 2010

I acquired an older hp compaq presario computer version 6310us, and initially installed mint, followed by Ubuntu 9.04. Neither one recognized the onboard ethernet port. I checked the bios, and LAN is enabled. It is also enabled in the drop down menu from the toolbar on the desktop. The cable works fine on other computers, and the light on the ethernet port flashes like it does when the cable is connected. I'm new to linux, so not sure what to do to get the connection working.

Networking :: SME+Compaq Presario - Can Only Get One Ethernet Card Working At A Time

May 25, 2010

I have an older Compaq Presario S6000CL, specs for it are here:

*Product Specifications Compaq Presario S6000CL Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Motherboard and bios here:

*Motherboard Specifications, A7V8X-LA (Kamet 2) Compaq Presario S6000CL Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

I am trying to get SME Server set up as a private server/gateway. Problem is no matter what I do I can only get one ethernet working at a time and only to the internet, not the local network. I tried both SME Server 7.4 and 8.0 beta 5 witht he same result. Now of course I checked the ethernet cards. The two I have now on it do work. One of them is the onboard ethernet the other one is in the second pci slot. They jsut don't work at the same time. (also I am familiar with SME and I had it configured correctly. Even if I messed up the order of the cards it is easy enough to just get up and switch the cables, reboot, etc.) I thought maybe there was a jumper setting or an over ride of some sort to let me use two ethernet cards. <I previously had all of this set up with an old HP computer (came with windows 98 originally.) But that computer decided it was time to retire to the road side.> It seems that it should just work. Any ideas on what I am missing or what I can do?

Edit:Spent another hour trying to get it to work and still nothing. It is picking up both ethernet cards just fine, I just updated sme 8 beta5 so the internet is working fine. I just can't get the local ethernet card to do anything at all, even though it is showing up as a green ok at boot. I checked the bios and I am not seeing anything there. It had an option to enable/disable LAN (which is enabled but I tried both and using to PCI ethernet cards. Didn't do anything different.) It has a Local LAN boot rom option, tried it enabled and disabled (Disabled now.) and nothing. I turned off the serial and parallel ports (doesn't make a difference either way.) I looked all over the motherboard and the only thing I can find is the jumper to reset the password. If a computer that was at least 12 years old could run SME and don't see why this one can't, it is half that age and a much better computer hardware wise.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 / HP Compaq 420 Wifi Hanging And Not Shutting Down?

Feb 3, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu Desktop Edition 10.10 . Everything works fine till the wifi is switched on. It keeps blinking and seems to work sometimes and intermittently hangs the system. Plus the machine hangs while shutting down whenever the wifi is turned on. I tried out acpi=no, pci=noacpi .

Note:I was also getting rt2800_pci_MCU_Status related hardware error and then added rt2800 to the blacklist.cfg , but this does not seem have affected the wifi and the hanging issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Isn't Working?

Apr 19, 2010

For the past almost year, once in a while my wifi won't work.At home,I use an ethernet cable. When I go out, or am out of town, about 1/3 times the wifi won't connect, and won't even find access points. Once this happens, no matter how many times I restart, the wifi won't work. The ONLY way I can get it to work again is if I reboot with the ethernet cord plugged into the laptop and into a router/switch/hub. My neighbor (the one who got me into Ubuntu) is a pretty experienced linux network admin who looked a my laptop and has no idea what is causing this. I've attached my syslog log entry for the last time this happened. Does anyone know why this is? I LOVE ubuntu but I may need to switch back to Windows because I NEED wifi to work.You will see in the logfile I tried connecting to two different APs. The one that always works is the second one, called linksys.

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 - WiFi Connection Not Working

Feb 3, 2010

I just recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a dell laptop. My WiFi connection that I've been using on the same computer for years is not working when I log on. However if I run the burnt image cd and choose the option "Use Ubuntu without making any changes to your computer" I am asked if I want install proprietary drivers. If I activate one "Broadcom STA" I can connect to the wireless connection in my house. When I am using the version installed on my laptop it doesn't ask me if I want to install the drivers and it doesn't even find them when I go to hardware drivers under system. So to sum it up I can get connection when I run Ubuntu from the cd but not when I run the Ubuntu on my laptop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi With Rt5390 In 11.04 Not Working

May 11, 2011

I bought my wife a Compaq Presario CQ56 for Mother's Day, took it home and put Ubuntu 11.04 on it because she didn't like Windows 7 which was on it and love Ubuntu on the other computers in the house. Anyway, the wireless adapter, an rt5390sta isn't working and have tried downloading the adapter from the ratech web site and it will not compile. Anyone have any ideas on how to get this working. I tried another solution which was mentioned on the forums here of removing the options from the network manager in preferred applications and that didn't work either.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ad-hoc Wifi + Frozen Bubble = Not Working?

May 31, 2010

Yesterday while me and my friend were in the train, we tried to set up a wireless network and play frozen bubble. So one of us makes a new wireless connection, the other connects to it, but we observed this: When the creator of the wifi network opens the game and tries to start the multiplayer, it says that it cannot connect to the server. On the other computer there is no problem with it. We tried to change the host of the connection, but the result was the same (the host computer couldn't connect to the "server")

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting WiFi Working On Zoostorm Freedom XL

Jun 1, 2010

I've recently invested in a new netbook, a Zoostorm Freedom XL and decided to install the Ubunto Netbook Remix alongside the Windows 7 starter edition which comes preinstalled.Everything went amazingly smoothly, and I now have a 99% working system - the only issue is the wireless networking.The wifi adapter doesn't seem to be being recognised by the Ubuntu install at all, to the extent that even using the wifi hotkey the wifi indicator does not come on and I cannot access wireless networks.

I've done a bit of reading, and it seems that ndiswrapper may be the solution I'm looking for, however I'm not entirely sure how to go about implementing this.The network card, in Windows, is simply recognised as "802.11n Wireless Lan Card" and the device manager properties suggest it's manufactured by Ralink and using driver version
