Here is my output of lspci: Code: $ lspci 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM57780 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 01) 02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8192SE Wireless LAN Controller (rev 10) I connected via ethernet just fine, but wireless is crucial for this laptop, and the additional drivers GUI program says nothing (or at least it finds nothing).
Yesterday I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 by a clean install. My laptop is an acer aspire 5050 with a IEEE 802.11 b/g Wlan wireless card. I am using only Ubuntu in my laptop. Today I noticed that wireless is dead. The indicator is off and I can see that there is not detection of any wireless networks in the "Wireless Networks" menu. In this point I must inform you that I didn't experience any wireless problems with the two previous versions of Ubuntu (9.10 & 10.04). Below you can see the outputs (in italic format) of some commands that I peformed in terminal:
So Ive got a windows laptop which I've tried dualbooting with linux from time to time, and I tried doing a clean install of 11.04 and I didn't need to do any configuration or download any drivers for my wireless to work, it works out of the box.The only problem is the connection will randomly get a weak signal and sometimes will drop for a few seconds, making web browsing or downloading anything quite a pain.What's worse is if you look at my other thread I tried this with a clean install of kubuntu but I couldn't even make the wireless connection work at all in kde.Here's the output of my lscpi:
I have a Fedora 11 into a virtual environment (ESX) I remove all interfaces but with the command system-config-network I see my previous configuration How can I remove/clear all my network configuration to start another time to config?

I recently purchased a Netgear WG111v2 802.11g wireless usb adapter for use with an ARM embedded device (loaded with the ARM port of ubuntu). It uses the rtl8187 driver and, when attached to my laptop, connects perfectly through NetworkManager. Unfortunately, I am not working with any ui on my embedded device so I won't have that luxury and must connect via the terminal. Unfortunately, I'm not able to connect this way on either my laptop or the embedded device (they both CAN pick up surrounding AP's through iwlist scan though). I'm able to set the ssid through
Code: sudo iwlist wlan0 essid "woot" and my access point is temporarily open (no wep/wpa). When I bring the device up using
Code: sudo ifconfig wlan0 up the light on the adapter starts blinking but I'm still not able to connect. iwconfig wlan0 outputs: [Code]...
I spent $70 on a brand-new Wireless-N adapter for my Ubuntu computer in hopes that I could get it to connect to the main router in the house and get me internet access. However, the driver install CD is designed for Windows and thus will not run. I have tried to get it to set up, but it takes no action when plugged in and I am still without access to the internet. what I can do to get my computer connected and save me from having wasted $70?
I have a typical 'linksys' style home wireless router (whose IP is 192.168.0.1) .
If I use DHCP, everything works fine:
However, if I try to give myself a static IP,
(I also never understood why the DNS server should not be the real dns server address (some external ip) rather than the router's address? but that is what gets set automatically when using DHCP)
So using manual, it connects, but then the internet doesn't work. The only difference I see when I go to "connection information" when connected with dhcp vs manual is in dhcp mode there is a "default route: 192.168.0.1". Is that the problem? How do I set this "default route" / what is it?
This may fall under the "ain't broke don't fix it" category but it's driving me nuts. I've got the Broadcom 4322 wireless adapter in my laptop and it works fine with broadcom-wl driver and kmod. However there is no ifcfg-eth1 file and the card does not show up in system-config-network.
Just did a clean 11.04 install, however, Ubuntu doesn't start properly, it usually stops when it gets to the purple screen, the screen with the word Ubuntu and a few red dots underneath it to show it is loading. The system usually stops there or stops before getting to that screen. I was able to start in the 'safe mode' though.
I need to wipe the slate clean on my computer and start from scratch. I have too many issues and school is just around the corner for me, I've got a huge workload and don't have time to find solutions to my problems right now. I recently upgraded to Lucid but that only escalated my woes. The simple fact is my machine is getting too old and it's time to upgrade everything, which won't happen until fall. So for now I simply want to downgrade to hardy because it will be supported until April next year and it is very stable, plus I think it is the release that my graphics card got a decent resolution on (ATI, need I say more?). I'm somewhat of a noob, but I've got my wits about me and have researched the forums for many hours to find solutions, but to no avail. I don't want to go into details about what issues I'm having, I just need to know how to remove ALL kernels off of Grub and start from scratch. Any links to comprehensive tutorials would be ideal, or if someone knows of anything else that will work,
P.S. I love Ubuntu and am a lifer. The philosophy behind it as well as the community are supreme and will someday rule the universe,
I have recently done clean installs of 11.4 on two computers and then done clean re-installs but still have the same problem. Each time, the install was without flaw and I could download the updates, when offered, in the install process. At the end of the install I can log into KDE and everything works. However, after shutting down, on reboot, I only get a command line login. I can either login and run startx or use su and do init 3 followed by init 5. This tells me I am getting to runlevel 5 but X isn't starting. Either of those approaches gives me the KDE login. However, after that I have to manually start the network in YAST. I also think I had had to restart CUPS but I have only got as far as installing a printer once so I can't be absolutely sure that happened. As I indicate, this is fully reproducible. Anyone give me a clue as to what is going on?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1464, I can not get the wireless to start. I can see my wireless router when I scan for wireless devices in knetwork manager. But there is a yellow shield next to it, so I'm guessing something is missing. I also see no network activity with tcpdump on another box on my home network

I have been running a web server from my fedora box for ~ 2 years now, though I have done terrible things to it by way of configuration settings. It seemingly works fine now, but i suspect that I have done some things in an innapropriate way. I would like to remove all of my current settings and web accessable info, and start fresh. What is the cleanest way to set my server's configuration files back to basics (not conserned about system settings related to firewalls).
videos videos work great, but unfortunately, when i try to access videos on hulu.com, i receive this error message: "we're sorry but we're unable stream this video to your system. this may be due to an adobe software limitation on 64-bit linux systems."
this is strange because hulu videos were working after i installed lynx but mysteriously stopped working. i don't have the swfdec-mozilla package installed nor the mozilla-plugin-gnash nor the flashplugin-installer.
what do i need to do to start clean and install the necessary packages?
I have 10.04 installed on my HP MiniNote Netbook. If I plug it into the the ethernet directly, all is well, but if I only use the wireless, i get no DNS servers. And one of my wireless networks is on the same router as the wired connection. Also, wireless works just perfectly on my MacBook Air. So, I do not think it is the router. So why am I not getting DNS addresses? How would I set them manually? I can't figure out how to start network manager.
I'm using Maverick and since yesterday, my wireless hasn't been working. It was working before with Maverick and I don't recall doing any updates that might have changed wireless configurations.
By "doesn't work" I mean it doesn't recognizes any networks, as if the wireless was turned off (there's this button on laptops, but it's turned on). I had that problem some time ago, but rebooting solved the problem, which, now, didn't.
I have a new HP G62-352CA with the Realtek 8191SE wireless. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 everything works fine except every time I restart the computer I have to press fn f12 to restart the wireless. Is there a way to have it default on at startup?
I just did a fresh install of 10.10 and whenever I log on it request the password for default keyring (the same as sign in password) in previous versions of ubuntu it never asked and automatically started the wireless; now it asks and tells me the password is incorrect. I can hit cancel a numerous amount of times and it will eventually allow me to connect, but that doesn't seem like a good fix in my opinion. This also happened when I tried out lubuntu 10.04 which I promptly removed due to the menu style.
just completed an new install of 11.3 on a laptop and have a couple of wireless config questions.the wireless is set for ifup mode and have been using iwconfig to set the ssid. is there a preferred way to automatically set the ssid? something that avoids setting a fixed ssid in ifcfg-wlan0. this laptop had 10.3 and to restart the network after wake-up from hibernation i had to run a script from pm-utils/sleep-d. it looks like i may have to do the same for 11.3. or does 11.3 have a better way?(NetworkManager in 10.3 gave me all kinds of grief, so i stopped using it. perhaps it is improved in 11.3, but i have not given it a chance.)
After an upgrade to 184.108.40.206-78.2.56.fc9.i686 in March, my Atheros wireless stopped working. (It had previously run without a hitch for 9 months). Anyway, I finally got around to working on it today and using the "WiFi misery" thread managed to consistently get it to start manually via these steps:ifconfig wlan0 up iwconfig wlan0 essid netname key xxxxxxxxxxxxx click on "activate" in network device control (gives error msg, but works)
During boot-up, I get "Invalid argument" errors for "SET MODE", "SET BIT RATE", and "SET ENCODE".Currently NetworkManager service is disabled, but when enabled doesn't seem to change any of the above.I'd like to get back to automatically coming up wireless, if possible.
Where I can get my wireless network running by typing the following lines of code:
But I have to do this every time I boot the machine. Ideally, I want the machine to do this on it's own at startup.
Also, I'm totally new to linux and I don't really understand what the 1st line of code is doing? The 2nd is just to check that the 1st line worked, and the 3rd does the settings for the wireless network I'm connecting to.
If you want to get into why I have to do this every time, then look at my original thread. But I started this new thread just to find out how I can get these lines of code done automatically at startup.
I built out a headless VMWare v2.0.2 Server. I managed to work all that out but now I'm having some trouble getting my virtual machines on the server. I installed both proftpd and vsftpd but neither server lets me log in. 'Login Failed' is always returned (using the only account on the machine - created during the install).
So I decided to install samba, but samba chokes on large files. I tried over and over again to copy a 10GB VMDK file over samba and it gets to 5% or so and suddenly tells me there is a network problem and dies (which there is no network problem as these machines are all on the same subnet plugged into the same gigabit switch).
So now I'm back to FTP. Unfortunately when I ran apt-get remove proftpd, it didn't remove any of the config files (/etc/proftpd/*) so I manually deleted them. Now when I try to reinstall the FTP servers they won't start because the config files are gone. What's the apt-get syntax to completely uninstall these servers as if they had never been installed so I can start clean? I really don't want to have to do a complete system re-install just to fix 300KB FTP servers.
