Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Driver Not Installing - Computer Crashes
I am using an HP dv6 series laptop. The wireless works fine in Ubuntu 9.10 (must install the Broadcom STA wireless driver). When I try to use Kubuntu 9.10 my computer crashes when I try to install the driver. Is there any particular reason why it works in one and not the other?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Installing Driver For ZEW1642S Wireless Adapter
I have a desktop and I just installed ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot with windows 7. My desktop has a wireless ZEW1642S card. I don't have access to a wired internet connection, but I can use the wireless on my windows 7 fine. It seems like there is no driver for it to work on ubuntu, and since I don't have an internet connection while in ubuntu, it seems I can't update it of course because I need internet to update. My wireless network does NOT have a password if that even means anything for this. I have the exe installer for the driver for it but I don't know how I'm supposed to get the INF file or whatever.

Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Downloaded Wireless Driver BCM4312
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Dell Mini 10v and for some reason I just realized that my wired network connection is not working for some reason. And not in windows either. But my wireless works in windows. So I have downloaded the latest Broadcom STA wireless drivers for linux and have tried to follow this tutorial to install it. But when I get to:

make -C /lib/modules/<2.6.xx.xx>/build M=`pwd` clean I can't get it to work. It says:

make: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic'

Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Broadcom Wireless Driver Disables Ethernet?
I have a Dell Inspiron E1505, which has the Dell Wireless 1505 (Broadcom) card. To run the card, I installed the Broadcom STA wireless driver, which seems to activate the wireless card OK. The problem is that once I installed that driver my onboard Ethernet card was deactivated (and yes, it is enabled in BIOS). I had to remove the wireless driver to get the Ethernet back. Does anyone have ideas? I haven't found this problem listed elsewhere. I am running Ubuntu 9.04 with no other problems.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Dongle Makefile Nightmare - Don't See The Driver File In The Folder Contents
I'm trying to get my new Wireless USB dongle to work with Xubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala. I've extracted the .rar file that was on the drivers CD that came with the dongle. According to the ReadMe....

The Model Name is: RT2870 Wireless Lan Linux Driver Driver Name: rt2870.o/rt2870.ko Hardware: Ralink 802.1n Wireless LAN Card Description: This is a linux device driver for Ralink RT2870 USB ABGN WLAN Card. My issues:

1. I do not see the driver file anywhere in the folder contents... I suppose that I have to "build" it.
2. In the makefile the chipset is default set to "CHIPSET = 3070" & the folder that holds all the extracted files is named 2008_1128_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.0.1.0 so I'm confused as to whether this dongle has a 2870 or 3070 chipset inside. Does it matter?
3. Sorry, I'm a bit of a n00bster when it comes to all this, but I'm having some problems with the build instructions. It reads:

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Driver Became De-activated After Plugging In Ethernet Cable For File Sharing
Using ubuntu 10.10 (pinguy OS) i connected an ethernet cable from my girl's macbook pro to her lenovo ideapad s10-3t to transfer some DS9 episodes onto it. new enough to linux to have not been able to figure out how to access the files on the mac, so i disconnected the ethernet, and the wireless hasn't worked since. tried everything i know, and googling for a while (as well as searching again on this forum) to no avail.

Just before linking the 2 computers via ethernet, the wireless worked fine on the ideapad, always had; but not so after the ethernet connection that did nothing other than apparently kill the wireless. an "lshw -C network" command tells me i have a BCM4313 wireless card, and *-network UNCLAIMED. also, if i launch "install additional drivers", i see that the proprietary driver is not active.

How could merely plugging in an ethernet cable that happened to be conncected to a MBP running OSX.6 do that? and will that happen again? i thought linux was supposed to play real nice with other OS's, so why did a simple file transfer kill my wireless connectivity? i have no access to internet via ethernet cable, so i cannot just download the driver i need now. shouldn't it still be in the computer still? somewhere? is there a simple solution to this, or has the wireless driver been wiped out by plugging in the ethernet? is this a bug that should be reported?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Installing Wireless Driver With Ndiswrapper On 11.4 GNOME
I recently upgraded to OpenSUSE 11.4 GNOME on my ancient Compaq Armada E500 (Pentium II processor w/512MB of RAM) and now I'm trying to install my wireless driver with ndiswrapper. I've done this a couple of times before, but I'm having trouble getting ndiswrapper to find my driver. The driver is located in a folder on my desktop, but when I type the command 'ndiswrapper -i home/edwin/Desktop/WPC54G_40826/LSTINDS.INF' I get a message that there is no such file or directory at ndiswrapper's location, which is usr/sbin/ndiswrapper. So how do I get ndiswrapper either to look in the directory where the file is located or get a copy of LSTINDS.INF into the usr/sbin/ directory, which must be accessed as root?

I have downloaded the driver via another computer and isolated the .inf, .sys, and .bin files for the driver, and am trying to install ndiswrapper in order install the driver. the problem is I cannot get ndiswrapper to install, the 'make' command pulls in a laundry list of errors along with the 'make install' command. Is there something I'm missing? I have managed to update the kernel via another computer running the latest kernel, but still receive errors.

Fedora :: Installing Driver For Wireless Card RT3070
I am very new to Linux and need to install a driver for my wireless card. I am trying to install the RT3070 v2.0.1.0 driver from Ralink. I am running Fedora 2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i686.PAE. I have read the thread in the Solutions section about this driver, but unfortunately this is somewhat above my levels of comprehension, and I don't really know where to start.

Here is the output.

OpenSUSE :: Installing Windows Driver Via Ndiswrapper?
I am using ndisinstaller in openSUSE 11.2 to re-install a Windows driver. This is equivalent to ndisgtk in Ubuntu and is a GUI to help installing Windows driver via ndiswrapper. Note that you have to locate the .INF driver file in Windows partition, not Linux partition, or else ndisinstaller won't work. When I open ndisinstaller as root, it asks me if I want to re-use an "existing instance of ndiswrapper" or eliminate this manually.

If I choose "reuse existing ndiswrapper instance", the driver installation works but writing the module seems take forever. So my question is how do I eliminate an existing instance of ndiswrapper by hand? Please note that prior to using ndisinstaller, I have already removed any existing drivers and ndiswrapper modules to make a clean slate.

Fedora :: Error While Installing Wireless Driver Using Make In FC12
The relevant details of my setup are:
Samsung R522 laptop
Realtek RTL8192E wireless network controller (PCI)
Fedora 12, kernel 2.6.32.9-70.fc12.i686 (automatically updated using software update)

My problem is that my wireless card has never worked - basically there aren't any widely available linux drivers, and there are many threads on getting the RTL8192E to work on many different forums, e.g. here, but none specifically for Fedora, so I think that this thread could potentially guide many more users. FYI, my hardwired network connection works perfectly.

Fantastically however, by emailing Realtek support, they'll send you their Linux driver, which most people have claimed works perfectly (although why they haven't just put it on their website is beyond me). SO, I've got a Linux driver for my wireless card. When Realtek emailed me to send me the driver, they said to just 'cd' into the driver directory, then do

su
make clean
make
make install
reboot
./wlan0up or ./wlan1up

OK, so I tried to do this and get the following error:
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.32.9-70.fc12.i686/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2

I don't know enough about linux to understand this error. I really don't want to have to recompile my kernel, and I hope there is some way to install this driver with not too much hassle. How to overcome this error, and install my wireless driver so I can get wireless network access on my Fedora 12 operating system. I've found Fedora 12 really easy to use so far, but this is proving quite hard!

This is the output of 'ls -lh' in the folder which seems to be causing the error, namely /lib/modules/2.6.32.9-70.fc12.i686/
total 3.1M
