Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Is Not Working-Dell Inspiron 1545

Jun 6, 2010

I am having trouble in getting the wireless up in Ubunto 10.04. Under Wireless Networks it says "wireless disabled". I have a dual boot with Windows 7, installed Ubunto with the help of Wubi installer. My laptop is Dell Inspiron 1545, with a 64 bit architecture.I have already done checking and enabling the wireless driver by going to System- Administration-Hardware Drivers and choosing Broadcom STA driver.

Ubuntu Networking :: Neither Wired Nor Wireless Working Dell Inspiron 1545

Jul 27, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 on my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop, but I can't connected to the Internet with a wired or wireless connection. I have a BT Home Hub 2 wireless router. I can connect to the Internet when running Windows Vista, but not with Ubuntu.

I tried installing the Broadcom STA driver off of the live disk, which initially seemed to work. However, I still couldn't connect to the Internet and when I clicked on System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, there weren't any proprietary drivers to install or that had been installed. Also, when I reboot, Ubuntu tries to connect to my network automatically but always fails. That's what makes me think that a driver has been installed, but just isn't the right one or isn't working.

Ubuntu Networking :: Re-enable Wireless On Dell Inspiron 1545?

Jun 12, 2010

I've got a Dell Inspiron 1545 with wireless card Dell wireless 1397 802.11g. It was working fine with Windows and Ubuntu 9.04 (I've got the two OS installed alongside). But as soon as I upgraded my Ubuntu to version 10.4 I realised it lost its wireless connection! I updated the system, the hardware driver for Broadcom STA wireless driver is activated and in use (according to Ubuntu Hardware drivers checker) but the fact is that I can only connect on the Internet if I hook the net cable on it, when I run the mouse over internet connection icon at the topright side of the monitor I see "no network" message and when I left click on it the option "wireless network" it's disabled and gray. How can I get my wireless card back working?

I have install the following rpms:

kmod-wl-5.10.91.9.3-3.fc12.11.x86_64
code....

what I do not understand is the state of the card as unavailable. how I can activate this card?

Networking :: Dell Inspiron 1545 Ethernet And Wireless Won't Connect On Ubuntu Studio

Sep 14, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card and a Marvell Yukon 88e8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller, and I cannot for the life of me get the internet to connect. I've tried both wired and wireless connection. I have a PPoE connection through a Verizon FIOS Actiontek router I believe, though the PPoE part may be wrong, I had one five years ago when I first got their internet so they may have changed it. Point is that the ethernet and internet won't work, and without a working ethernet I can't fetch the right drivers for anything.

I had also tried plain ubuntu 10.04 and couldn't get them to work then either. It said 'disconnected' at first, and then said 'device not ready' There is no hardware switch but there is a key toggle. It doesn't seem to matter what state the wireless was in before booting into Ubuntu Studio, so I'm lost as to where to even start. Even though the network manager isn't there like in regular ubuntu, I assume there will be a simple way to connect to the internet once the drivers are found, right?

I've seen issues and read about fixing them, but usually it uses an ethernet connection to fix the wifi connection and, being new to linux (<50 hours worth of experience lifetime), all I managed to do trying to fix it myself was screw up the installation to the point where the laptop couldn't access the home folder and I had to reinstall. Other than that, I am usually very good at following instructions, as long as they apply to my laptop's issue I guess

The only other issue is minor, I can't seem to control the USB mouse I have, but the trackpad works fine so it's no big deal, probably a matter of downloading the mouse driver once the internet works.

Currently I do have internet access via the same laptop while booting Windows 7 (I installed Ubuntu Studio 10.04 on a 10GB Partition with the idea of using an external HD for most data storage).

Oh and it is a 64-bit machine, the Studio version I installed is 32-bit.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working In 9.10 Using Dell Inspiron 600m?

Jan 7, 2010

The network icon and sound icon disappeared from the panel all of sudden one day while i was using ubuntu 9.10 and the network got disconnected. It used to work fine before when i was using ubuntu 9.04 and even after i updated to 9.10, but then that happened. I added the notification area back to the panel but now ubuntu cannot even find any wireless networks. When i connect a LAN cable to my laptop the internet works fine, but the wireless networks area in the network icon is grayed out and it doesn't show any wireless networks. I'm using a Dell Inspiron 600m laptop and my network card is Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05).

I followed the guide here: [URL]

Here are the details of my network card:

Things seem to install fine, but the wireless network remains unavailable (wireless network is disabled).

If someone can walk me through the trouble-shooting process, I tried the solution suggested in the sticky at the top too but no luck.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Install 12 On Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop?

May 12, 2010

I am using Ubuntu right now. But I wanted to install Fedora 12 on my Dell inspiron 1545 laptop. My questions are can I use a live cd if available for fedora 12 and then install it on my laptop like we can do for ubuntu. Are all the drivers available automatically installed during installation.

The problem I faced my last installation with fedora 11 was that I could not get the wireless installed and I was unsuccessful in installing the wireless drivers using ndis wrapper or b43-legacy or something.

Can you give me a detailed link which could allow me to install the wireless drivers and also the video drivers for my laptop. The problem I am facing with my ubuntu 10.04 is that it is slow, the flash plugin is worst i guess, some of the flash videos are very slow.

Taking all of these into account can someone suggest me a good operating system. I am pretty much interested in learning linux rather than just using it like a windows operating system. I am considering, fedora 12, suse 11.2, linuxmint, centos, mandriva. Which one could be a best possible for my installation.

As I am not willing to purchase a dvd for these linux flavors can I use my flashdrive to install.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell 1545 - Wireless Connection Drops After A Couple Of Minutes?

Apr 10, 2010

I have a Dell 1545 laptop with ubuntu 9.1 32-bit installed (the 64-bit had a bug with the wireless drivers which is why I have not used it). Initially, the laptop worked well with the wireless (a sky router with WPA security) but now, the wireless signal drops after a couple of minutes of usage. I have to reboot the laptop or sometimes reboot the router as well to regain the wireless signal. I am using the Broadcom STA proprietary wireless driver.

I have an older dell inspiron 6400 as well with the same OS and driver and it works perfectly without any problems for hours / days.

General :: Ubuntu 10.04 - Wireless Card Not Working On Dell Inspiron 2200

Oct 9, 2010

I am new to Linux. About 72 hours in, and I must say. I am quite impressed. Except for a small issue. I cannot seem to figure out how to get my wireless card working. I have used the bcm43xx technique with no avail. And am working on ndswrapper. The good news is I think I have the .sys file that works. But I don't have the .inf. However any way I could make this work would be great. Below I have posted my lspci stats.

Debian Configuration :: Jessie - Wireless Not Working Dell Inspiron 1525

Sep 19, 2015

I have a problem with my laptop Dell Inspiron 1525 wireless on Jessie Cinnamon.

I have installed the b43 firmware and after that everything seemed working but just for a few seconds.

I have tried to reboot and after that I can't browse the internet just for a few seconds and after that Iceweasel loading and loading and nothing's happening.

I can't surf on the net just with cable but the wifi setup shows everything is okay 95% signal strength and connected.
Also tried reinstall the firmware and reboot and it's all the same after.

I can easily use my wifi with my smartphone too.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Inspiron 15r (n5010) Wireless Disabled?

Sep 30, 2010

i have to say that i'm not too familiar with Ubuntu... or Linux in general . I've installed it once, just to test it out but I didn't know how to use it so i just reinstalled windows. The other night, i was bored and decided i wanted to re-try Ubuntu and to my suprise, i found Wubi. I love ubuntu now and i made the decision to permanently switch over to ubuntu.

At first, my wireless wasn't working, but there was a quick fix. All i had to do was go to the Synaptic Package Manager, Reload, and search for "Broadcom." I installed the Broadcom STA Wireless driver and i was online within a couple of minutes. I then played around for a couple of hours before turning my laptop off. But, this morning, when i turned it back on...I coudlnt' connect. When i click the little connection icon in the top right, i see the message "Wireless is disabled".

There is a key on my computer that turns the wireless card on or off, and i have tried it. It doesn't work. I have reinstalled the broadcom driver and it doesn't work. I've rebooted...And it doesn't work. I don't know enough about linux to get a solution and every other solution i find on the internet doesn't work.

I have seen in other threads that you guys usually ask for a a couple of things from the user. ifconfig and the sudo lshw -C network so i have included them below. I also looked into the ubuntu help documentation and it told me to do the lspci command.

ifconfig

Code:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr a4:ba:db:d1:61:c2
inet addr:192.168.1.68 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

Ubuntu Networking :: No Ethernet Or Wireless Dell Inspiron 1764?

Jun 17, 2011

I'm running on 11.04 on my Dell Inspiron 1764, and so far haven't been able to achieve internet access through either a direct wired connection or wireless.

Wireless network controller: Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)

Ethernet controller: Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02)

Fixes I've tried so far:

Wired - Attempted to install the r8168 driver and remove the r8169 driver as is done in this thread:

Wireless - managed a fleeting wired connection yesterday, during which time I installed the Broadcom STA driver through Additional Drivers.

Also attempted to install the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer, following these instructions:

but to no avail (under Synaptic Package Manager, the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer still remains unchecked after I install it through terminal)

Ubuntu Networking :: BCM4312 802.11b/g 9.10 Dell Inspiron 11 Wireless Driver Now Missing?

Mar 1, 2010

I tried to find my solution for hours now but no luck. I'm a medical student and the other day I finally found the time to set up ubuntu for my first time. Everything was working great and I had wireless up and running. However, I tried to set up tethering to my iphone and after that my wireless hasn't been working (I've noticed no other problems). [URL]..Then I used this tutorial [URL].. However, after doing these steps the computer needed to reboot (I actually forget exactly where but I had to reboot in the middle of the second tutorial). After my computer restarted my wireless no longer showed up. By this I mean that wireless network no longer even showed up as an option when I left clicked then connections. However, I did not lose the wireless profile under network connections. So I went to system and noticed that the Broadcom STA driver was no longer active. So I tried to activate again and received this message.

Ubuntu Networking :: Not Detecting Wireless Networks On Dell Inspiron Mini 10?

I recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10, and for some reason it isn't detecting any wireless networks. The wireless works perfectly fine when I boot to Windows XP on the netbook, but not when I'm using Ubuntu. I tried troubleshooting using this htmlAt the "check for device recognition" step, the terminal tells me that it's disabled, but as far as I can tell there isn't a physical switch that allows me to turn the wireless on or off, and again, it works perfectly fine when I use XP. What should I do?
