I've tried to install Linux systems have been failures. Trying to make this work, trying to get on the right wagon, and it's frustrating as all get-out.
Installed netbook remix onto a HP Mini 1000 (1116NR?) and everything seems to be working alright, except no wireless networking. I tried a couple of things and now it shows "device not ready" instead of "disabled", so I figure I'm getting somewhere.
The device is:
Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
I want in. This is my 3rd try over the years of running Linux and I always hit snags like this that I can't fix because I've never gotten to play with it enough to learn what I'm doing and generally don't have a 2nd computer like I do right now.
I just recently installed ubuntu, my first experience with linux. I don't know if it isn't recognizing my wireless card or if it is another issue, but I am unable to view any wireless networks/connect to any. When I click on the network icon it says "wireless" with Device Not Ready underneath.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and I can't seem to get the wireless connection to function. Ubuntu either says that the card is turned off or if I toggle the wireless switch on my keyboard it then says 'device not ready.' I'm using a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card, and it works fine when I boot in Windows 7.
I thought I'd give Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal??) a try on an old Dell Latitude D600 I had lying around. Install went great. Everything seems to run nice and slick.. except one thing.. the wireless is giving me the old "Device not ready (firmware missing)" So I can only use my lappy on a leash.
It's a pretty common Broadcom NIC... and I've tried running the System / Administration / Additional Drivers and nothing comes up.
It seems to me I need a driver someplace...I don't know where or how to get it installed.
This morning I installed Fedora 14 on my laptop. During the setup, I was able to configure the wireless connection and use it to install additional software from the FreshRPMs and Livna repos. When the install was completed, I was surprised to find the wireless not working. When I click on the NetworkManager icon at the bottom right corner, I see "Wireless Networks" Under that it says "device not ready" and it is greyed out so it cannot be click on.
Running lspci -vnn returned 07:00.0 Ethernet controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01) Kernel driver in use: ath5k Kernel modules: ath5k Running lsmod confirmed that ath5k is in fact loaded.
I have a HP Elitebook 6930 with Intel 5300 wireless card and today I update it from Fedora11 to Fedora 12 and now I cannot connect with my home wireless network. Previously with F11 I connected without problems but now the wireless connection presents a "Device not ready" message. I tried to switch on/off the wireless card but without results. I had to set intel_iommu=off as kernel parameter to complete the boot. Is something related to it?
I'm running Linux 11.04 and my wireless network was working just fine until today. I cannot connect to WiFi - it acts as if the device wasn't there. The hardware switch led isn't working. No matter how much clicking on it, it won't work.

I'm running ubuntu 9.10 (cause 10.04 is crazy glitchy on this system) and I've hit a snag.My wireless won't work! I used it before in 10.04, but it won't work in 9.10.I've made sure that the wireless switch on my keyboard is on. When I click on my network icon, it says that the device is not ready. I'm fully updated and just need this last thing
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
is there any way to download the 'package indexes' on a seperate computer operating on windows vista, before transferring them, via usb, to my laptop working on linux 10.10. As the reason i need them is to get the wireless to work so the internet can work.
I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 and burnt it to a CD so I could try Ubuntu before installing it via Live CD. It automatically displayed the window where you download drivers for your hardware, I activated the Broadcom drivers, and WiFi worked fine. So then I installed it inside of Windows (as a dual-boot). Now, when I open the hardware managing window (I forget what it's called), there are no drivers listed to be activated. Since I am unable to activate the Broadcom divers, I can't get internet over wifi. Also, I don't have access to a wired connection, but I do have blank CD's and a USB stick (if that helps). How can I fix this?
I tried all the threads to load and compile the driver for the Belkin wireless-N F5D8053 (Ralink RT2870 chip) I still cannot get it to come up - the wireless status says device not ready. Here is some of the system info relating to the adapter:
i have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my computer, which is HP 4710s ProBook.I've installed it with wubi and everything seem to be working just fine, except for my wireless.It is showing me: device not ready(firmware missing).
I want to give a new life to my old Mac Mini that has become too weak for Mac OS ...I successfully installed the Ubuntu 9.10 PPC version (alternate) on the machine. EXCEPT for the support of the wifi antenna. Network manager says: "device not ready". I suppose there is a standard tweak to get over this hurdle.
Recently, I wiped my existing install of Ubuntu 10.10 and reinstalled it over. That went smoothly, except for one little snag. Now when I try to connect to the Internet, up on the top when I click the little network icon, under Wireless Networks, instead of showing the networks I can connect to, it says:
"Device Not Ready (Firmware Missing)" So I move the little wireless switch on my laptop, and then it says:
"Wireless Disabled" What did I do, and how do I fix it?
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 (1143CTO) and I'm having problems getting my wireless NIC to work, as far as I can tell the drivers and firmware are all installed and the device is working.I have searched around and have done all the fixes I can find online, this is my first 'real' experience with Linux, so patience is appreciated, as is any help I can get. I also had this problem with Linux Mint 11.It appears that the model of my card is BCM43224, but it doesn't show up anywhere in the with any commands?sudo lshwQuote:
I'm trying to connect to the Internet using 64-bit lucid, and I'm in quite the foggy situation. The computer recognizes the wireless card, but can not use it to connect to the Internet. here are some screenies:
First: The toolbar app: "Device is not ready"
Second: The terminal. shows that card is a Realtek 8192 (e se or u etc. I'm not quite sure) Also shows a bit of other stuff.
Third: Network Connections software: not very helpful. No connection at all.
So my question is... What seems to be wrong and how do I fix it (eg. do I have to install a driver of some sort, change some settings around or write some fancy code etc.?)
Recently did an apt update and upgrade to my CLI only Lenny server. Upon reboot I get an "ATA softreset failed (device not ready)" for all of my SATA drives. I noticed the upgrade changed the kernel to "Linux debian 2.6.26-2-amd64" (do have 64bit CPU).Once loaded to a command prompt I can assemble my raid 6 array with the command "mdadm --assemble /dev/sda to sdd" then mount it with mount -a. But transfers to the array areorribly slow ~1mbs.Upon reboot i get the same errors and have to assemble my array every time
I have 4 Dell R200's with Seagate 2x250Gb drives running software raid on CentOS 5.2 kernal 2.6.18-92.1.13.el5. They all get these errors 5-10 times a day and when the errors occure the servers apear to freeze and drop all network connections, very frustrating. I've updated to smartmontools 1:5.38-2.el5 and confirmed with Seagate that I have the latest drive firmware, and am now at a loss as to how to fix this. All of the systems report the problem only on sda not sdb.
I have freshly installed ubuntu 9.10 and moreover i am completely a newbie to Linux. The problem now i am facing is, i am not able to configure my wireless router. I tried finding drivers for it in System->administration->hardware drivers. But it showed me none. Then i checked out one of the threads in this forum and came across the 'lspci -nn' cmd. This gave me the info abt my wireless network controller and it was : 'Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)'.
It's been ages since I've been on here I've been messing around with BackTrack. I've come back to Ubuntu but seem to be having some problems getting my wireless network thingy working. Here are the specs of my system. Any advice on fixing this would be very very apprciated.
On another note I'm trying to run debain I've got no startx on there or anything like that it's feeling very basic atm. I want to keep startx outta there but I can't connect to the Internet and run apt-get install to grab handy things.
I'm hoping whatever I am gonna do to solve this on Ubuntu will let me connect up to my wireless network with the internal network thingy. However if it doesn't I'm guessin I can just connect up physically to the router. Any tips on doing this from the command line?
I've been using Ubuntu for a while, but I have never tried to set up a wireless device with it. I have no idea where to even begin. I've done a search of the forums but wasn't able to glean much from it.
I am running UNR on an Asus T91MT and everything was working great until an update yesterday, my OS froze while updating and I had to do a hard reboot. Since, I have not been able to get wireless, and lshw does not even recognize the presence of a wireless device on the system.
I recently bought a new nettop and installed Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop. Unfortunately the on-board wlan is kind of crap so I bought a USB Wireless stick and since that stick has a pretty recent chipset ndis was needed to get the USB stick to work as wlan1.
The issue is I want to disable the on-board wlan (wlan0). The BIOS does not offer that option so it needs to be done in the OS I guess. My question is what is the best way of doing so? I've read something about blacklisting or editing 10-wlan.rules but I am unsure what the best place is and what to put there.
