Laptop: HP 6910p Wireless Card: BCM4312 NO issues with wireless in 8.10 (intrepid) - fwcutter driver. Performed clean install of 10.04 (lucid) onto a brand new hard drive (July 2010) - fwcutter driver. NO issues with wireless in 10.04 (lucid) until a few days ago, when. my laptop shutdown because the battery died and I safe-upgraded to 2.6.32-24-generic. Currently I have chronic wireless connectivity issues - slow to non-existent. Ping tests (ping -c6 google.com or ping -c6 188.8.131.52) sometimes reveal 0% loss, sometimes 100% loss, sometimes "unknown host" - within 5 minutes of each other. Regardless of ping results, web pages are consistently slow to load. Skype will also cut out from time to time as the wireless connection vacillates. I have a MacBook Pro which I am using as my (wireless and consistently well-connected) control - and from which I am currently forced to draft this note.
I just installed and Ubuntu doesn't recognize my wireless card HP dv2945se. I can get a wired connection. I can't figure out what kind of card I have (did the terminal command line, have no idea how to read it) or how to install a driver for this OS (HP's site just lists drivers for Windows). How to get the wireless card recognized?
Someone had just given me a pc with no OS so I installed ubuntu 10.04. The pc has a wireless card but I cannot seem to get the OS to recognize it. My wired connect is fine but wireless is non-existent.
I have lucid installed on my hp laptop without any problems, and I went to install it on another hp but the I can't connect to any wireless network. I tried to follow this thread's advice [URL] . Because it's pretty much the same problem except I think the wireless card is from a different Intel family but it didn't work.
Basically wireless networks won't show up, in fact the network icon only has "wired" as a menu option.
I tried to follow the thread, even though I had no idea what it was saying as far as instruction goes.
I am trying to maintain another computer that runs Ubuntu, and everything seems to be running smoothly except for one thing: the wireless. Due to distance issues, I cant use a cord, but the computer is close enough to get a signal. am using a Netgear wnda3100 wireless usb adapter. I installed Ubuntu on the computer because I heard that the device was supported in Ubuntu, and it wast after a while, the adapter is no longer recognized. I have had to reinstall multiple times, and I'm no longer in the mood to reinstall. Does anyone on the UF know hwo to fix this
No wireless networks can be recognized in Ubuntu, and now after several attempted fixes, my wireless toggle button won't switch from orange to blue. My wireless card is Atheros AR5001. I posted in the absolute beginners forum, but I've played around so much that I think I can move on to this one I'm so sorry if posting another thread is bad etiquette, but I need to have wireless access by Friday morning, and am slightly desperate.
Attempted fixes: First, I installed the backport modules using Synaptic. Then, I installed the madwifi driver. After those failed, I used ndiswrapper to install the Windows driver (linked from the ndiswrapper page). I made sure to disable the madwifi driver and restart first. My output all looks normal--I blacklisted everything mentioned in google searches. Here is the current output of ndiswrapper -l:
Code: ndiswrapper -l WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in
I upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10. I had no problem connecting to my wireless network with 9.10, but can't with 10.04. The network shows up as available, but it won't connect when I enter the security informationBelow are the details and the information I've seen requested from others with a similar problem.I'm at my wits end.Dell Inspiron 8200 Laptop with TrueMobile 1150 wireless card.
I just installed Ubuntu on my Dell Inspiron 17R (in part to determine whether it's windows that's causing my system to freeze daily or whether it's a hardware snafu, and in part because I like Ubuntu), but it appears that Ubuntu is not recognizing my wireless router--it says no networking devices detected. I was thinking that it might have been a problem with the install, but is there any way to fix it manually?
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 recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 (natty-64 bit) and my wireless PCI card is not being recognised by default. Previously, when I upgraded to 10.10 I had to go to the Realtek website, download the driver for RTL8185 and install it (following instructions in the readme file) to get my wireless card recognised and working properly. This time around, that approach doesn't seem to work. When I try to install it using "make" I get the following error:
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic-pae/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [all] Error 2
I have a Dell Laptop which worked very well also with the wireless card. In fact the wireless card was never an issue and worked straight out of the box. However it has lost the ability to detect the wireless networks. I have plenty of networks in my area and my little netbook shows them nicely. So did my Dell laptop in the past. But now the Dell laptop shows no scan results at all although the card seems to be up and running (see terminal output below) I have to add that I had to compile a module for the WIRED network card which works excellent I always use and used a wired network and cannot say when the wireless card stopped to work PLUS I had a faulty harddisk which was replaced by Dell recently so there could be also a hardware fault since then because the laptop was opened by the service people. And yes the wireless is switched on in the BIOS If I create a wireless network with the laptop the netbook can see it, so the wireless card is broadcasting
I'm a totally rookie at all this. I installed Ubuntu 10.4 Netbook edition in an HP Mini 1116 NR computer--I used an SD card & UNetbootin) and the wireless router is not recognized. I've been pretty much googling and troubleshooting this problem for most of the day. I always get stuck at a dead end. This netbook does not have an ethernet adapter nor a CD-Rom drive, so I have no way of connecting to the internet w/out wireless. I am able to download things from my other laptop to the SD card.
1. When I enter sudo apt-get install build-essential at the terminal, I get "package not found."
2. When I try to install b43-fwcutter or bcmwl-kernel-source, it either won't work because I can't connect to the net or I get a "dkms dependency" issue.
3. So I tried to install the dkms pacakge and got a "gcc dependency" issue. After that, I come up with a dead end.
An alternative option, so I read, is to use ndiswrapper and download the HP wireless broadcom driver, but that driver is a .exe file and I read that ndiswrapper needs a .inf file and I can't seem to find one. Does it matter?
I have an Asus K60 laptop with the Athlon chipset. I had wireless working just fine under Lucid. But after upgrading to Meerkat, I can't get my password to be recognized. The router connection is seen without any difficulty, but the WPA password is rejected every time. I've rechecked it, of course, and also checked that it works in the Windows partition on the same machine. I'm using wicd and madwifi, recompiled for the -35 kernel. Here's the relevant output of lspci:Quote:

i have a red light on the laptop,that means (i think) the hardware recognized but the wireless support is turned off.how can i get this light, flash,and a list of availble wireless connections in my area,
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my new Sony Vaio series S but it does not recognize my wireless card (I think). The button is on, but the light does not turn on, and it does not detect the wireless card. The wireless card, an Intel Centrino Advanced -n 6205, does work in ubuntu and when I run the command: lshw -C network, it appears UNCLAIMED, that I think it means the drivers are not in the Ubuntu libraries. What can I do to make it work? I've been struggling but I cannot make it work.
whenever I go to Pogo.com to play some games, it says I need a java plugin. How do I do this? I click download, and this other pages comes up, but I don't know which one to choose! (Look at screen shots) Screenshot-1.pngScreenshot-2.png
I'm using ubuntu 10.4The hardware is a usb adapter with ew-7718unThe network is recognized, but never succeeded to connect. all the network setting are equal to a laptop which connect using on-board card (same linux distribution). the adapter performed well on windows. The problem persist with two different computers both with ubuntu 10.4
After having trouble with Ubuntu 9.10 (solved with a nice modemmanager bug fix by a great user) here we are with the new Lucid Lynx: until now, just to be safe, I am trying my Nokia CS-10 USB stick (for wireless 3g connection) with the Live Ubuntu, and it doesn't even get recognized (no red light or anything else)...
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop using the Wubi installer. Everything seems to be working fine except for my wireless connection. When I plug in my wired connection and test on speedtest.net I get download speeds of 20MB/second. However, when I switch to my wireless connection, I barely break 1MB/second. I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless adapter. I have scoured this forum, Google, everywhere I can think of to find a solution and none seem to work for me. I love Ubuntu but this might be a deal breaker...
Problem in Natty Narwhal - 11.04 with the Broadband 43xx Wireless Card: Unable to download firmware for wireless. (Also works for 10.10 and 10.04) From the 'Additional Drivers' section: Quote:

Kontza found the solution (post #3), so thank him for it. This solution fixed this problem on my Dell Inspiron 1545 with a Broadcom 4312 card. (Card Tech Specs: 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)) Solution 2: Another option is here. Update: The Live USB of Natty Narwhal (11.04) automatically detected that I needed the STA driver. After installing it and rebooting, the wireless worked. (No cable was needed for this.) Update 2: After installing with the alternate cd, I needed a cable and after updating, I was able to download the STA driver through the 'Additional Drivers' section.
my wireless home network is not recognized by my network card (RealTek RTL8190 mini PCI). The post was as follows: "I am using a new computer with Windows 7 , Athlon quad core 2.60 64 bit, 8GB RAM. Internet conection works fine with ethernet but ubuntu does not see my wireless network. card (RealTek RTL 8190 ID: 10ec:8190). Have searched this forum but unable to come up with a fix. I was looking for windows XP drivers to use Ndiswrapper but could not find a list of .inf files. My network is OK and works perfectly in windows and with my 2 laptops. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Additional info: install was done within Windows using WUBI to a separate partition on my HDD. I am new to this and thouroughly confused as to the procedure for installing the drivers if they are in fact available."
I am very frustrated in that I would like to use Ubuntu 10.04 but it is useless without internet connectability. I am new to linux and do not understand where to get the appropriate drivers or how to install them. I wish someone would answer this post and either give me a clue what to do or just say "give up" and uninstall ubunutu.
I am connecting from this Ubuntu 9.10 computer to a WRT54G running dd-wrt, over WPA2 AES. Normally, everything works fine and I get very satisfactory download speeds; usually 1.5+ Mbps. Sometimes though, usually after restarting networking a lot, i.e. /etc/init.d/networking restart, the download speed seems to be limited to around 64-70 kbps. It also happened recently when I disconnected from a vpn with vpnc. It's really strange because it has nothing to do with changing any settings.
The only things I can think of are POSSIBLY wpa_supplicant causing problems because that's the only thing besides networking that's restarted. It could be related to my router config but I can't imagine what because it runs so fast normally. Rebooting the router doesn't fix it. Restarting the network, manually killing wpa_supplicant, rebooting the router. None of these seem to fix it. The only way I've found is to just reboot. Obviously, something breaks at some point that isn't affected again by anything but a reboot.
