Ubuntu Networking :: Get 9.10 To Work With Dlink USB WiFi?
Feb 21, 2010
I have been trying to get 9.10 to work with my D Link DWA 125 USB WiFi antenna for days now. I have searched these forums as well as other forums for answers. I have tried all of the suggestions I have come across, some simple, some complex. Nothing works. I have tried ndiswrapper, blacklisting drivers, re-installing, modifying the 2870sta.dat file......nothing works (or maybe I'm doing it wrong...I don't know).
I have a fresh install of 9.10 .Can someone please walk me through this and show me what I'm doing wrong?
had 9.10 and had truble with this usb wirerless dongle but was able to fix with some help from the formes so now with the fresh install the wireless maneger sees my network and says its conected but no lights on dongle and web pages wont come up
I have an Asrock A330GC, with onboard ethernet, and an Engenius PCI card for wifi.I installed ubuntu server 9.10 no problems, and it picked up my ethernet in the installation with no difficulties.I couldn't get 9.10 to do what i wanted, so I tried installing 8.4 instead. This however didn't pick up any of the drivers, so i couldn't get online.So i reinstalled 9.10, only to find that no couldn't find network in the installation.Absolutely NOTHING has changed, the ethernet cable still plugged in, and if i plug same cable into my laptop, it works fine.Any ideas people?ifconfig doesn't mention any eth0, just lo, with an ip of 127.0.0.1 and amask of 255.0.0.0 which i'm fairly certain means its dead
I have been trying to install the driver for my Intel 5100 wireless card. I got the "correct" driver from the Intel site for Linux, but cannot figure out how to install it even after reading READ ME. So I tried ndiswrapper and couldn't figure that out either. I can't find the files it is talking about.
I've bought this Blumax USB WLAN adapter 9009 (ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501/RT2573 Wireless Adapter). I was specifically happy to read in its specs that it supports Linux [URL].
However, it turned out that the co-packaged CD drive doesn't contain anything Linux-related, and the support page online has gzip package with many files I don't know what to do with [URL]. The online support swallowed my query and hasn't returned any answer.
So, now I am wondering what to do. I don't feel so competent as to be able to compile the drivers on my own, specifying several specific parameters. At least it doesn't compile with default params. how to move forward with this. Apart from returning the device, because I'm too far now from the place where I bought this.
I'm looking for a cheap and stable wifi card that will work with Ubuntu 11.04. My Linksys WMP300N is creating a conflict with the native Broadcom driver (causing the system to freeze after light network traffic) and ndiswrappper isn't working for 64 bit Ubuntu.
Does anyone own a relatively cheap (less than $40USD) PCI card that works flawlessly, or close to flawlessly with 64bit Ubuntu 11.04? I need to get off of this 35ft ethernet cord. Cat5 + crossing top of stairs = problem in the future.
At home in Guangzhou, I have no problem connecting to a WPA-secured wireless router.Now I'm on vacation in another city trying to use a dLink DI-624 router. If I connect immediately after reboot, no problem. If I suspend the session and then wake the machine up again, it will try to connect and then tell me WPA authentication failed.This happens both with network manager and wicd.sysinfo says the network controller is an Atheros AR9285 (ethernet is Realtek RTL8101E/8102E, probably not relevant).Since everything works correctly with routers other than the dLink, I'd have to guess it's not a general wireless configuration problem, nor a wireless card malfunction. Maybe some bad handshaking that manifests only after waking from sleep?More out of curiosity -- I'll only be here for a few weeks and a wired connection is readily available. But, say I end up in a hotel somewhere that uses dLink for WiFi
Older laptop I just upgraded to FC13. I would like to use a Dlink DWL-650 pcmcia card. The system sees it.
#iwlist wlan0 scanning Cell 01, mac, chan, freq and everything else for my base router Cell 02, same thing for my extender unit ifconfig wlan0 wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0D:88:AA:AA:AC inet6 addr: fe80::20d:88ff:feaa:aaac/64 Scope:Link
ifcfg-wlan0 is set for DHCP. Notice above no IP. If ifcfg is given an IP/mask still no IP. So it seems to be up and running, just not accessible.
In my laptop, after upgrade, wifi stop working.My laptop is Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro V2065, wifi cart Philips 12127e (from IBM T41), linux kernel: 2.6.37-020637rc3.This card worked before upgrade, and work on windows Command lshw -c network return:Quote:

I can't connect to the internet as the wifi hasn't worked since I reinstalled Ubuntu 10.10...It might be a hardware problem as this problem occured, when I tried to install Windows 7 but it didn't work on my computer...than I decided to reinstall Ubuntu 10.10, but than the wifi just wasn't working...but it was working before the win 7 installation and during the installation win 7 recognized my wireless connections...and even when I tried installing win 7 AGAIN it still recognized them...but every time I want to install Ubuntu 10.10...wireless just doesn't work.
I have 10.04 lucid installed on a presario 2800t laptop(it's old and hasn't got much memory). Anyway, now I can't get my Netgear WNA1100 to work. I know it works right away with 11.04, but that isn't really an option for me. It's too slow on this old computer. get it working with 10.04?
I've just installed Ubuntu 9.10 in my laptop. Everything works fine except for my wireless. It works, but much, very much slower the through RJ45, which is perfectly ok. When using wireless i can't even connect to any online messaging service and I need to reload pages oftenly. My security setting is WEP 128 bits ASCII and since I'm trying to follow the format suggested on the thread "HOWTO post a Wireless issue" I'll try to provide the infos like requested on it. Laptop brand and model (I'm from Brasil, so it's a brasilian model)
Does anyone have experience with the D-LINK DIR-655 gateway OR router OR wireless access point? On the surface, I like this box, but it is giving me grief. First, it wants me to use a win-dose CD configurator application. I use the embedded web page configurator. Next, there are several configuration wizards at the embedded web page. After trying the wizards, I went to the manual screens to tinker to get something working.
So what is going on? When a LAN client connects, I want DHCP to present at least two "nameserver" values ... which then make their way into /etc/resolv.conf The DIR-655 plays some nameserver games like caching and blacklisting and other things. However, I get some ad-vert page from "dnssearch" or "yahoo" or similar when names don't resolve. I really don't want this behavior. Network-manager does not report the connection down, however streaming anything stops or "reconnects", browsing times out, LAN side traffic seems to stop as well.
I'm not afraid to try building a router on a spare computer or on a spare dlink with tomato or other firmware. Which is recommended for a home with multiple computers, a file server, and a retiree with some time on his hands? I don't game or stream audio/video.
I have a Sony VAIO VGN SR29VN with ubuntu 9.10; I am trying to make a wifi connection through WPA work, to no avail. WEP and open connections work correctly, but when I try to connect to a WPA network using TTLS via network manager, y get errors of this type:Current regulatory domain updated by AP to:ES
preceded by lots of "leaving channel xxxx intact" and followed by "disassociating by local choice".This Sony is using an Intel 5100 wifi; any idea of what's going on or how to fix it?
Fresh install Ubuntu 10.10 on Acer Aspire 5050 with new hard drive. I struggled to turn the Wifi's button turn on but led light always on. It does not detect wifi driver. I installed ndiswrapper to get Acer's Winxp driver: netathr.inf by Windows Wireless Drivers from Ubuntu Software download. It's same thing as ndiswrapper.
I have a TP-Link WN851n ver2 with the ar922x chip. This just seems to drop out. it sometimes connects but not reliable. It is just plain annoying. I have to run windows to get any wifi to work properly.
my wireless network doesnt recognize that any network is around. The broadcom STA driver will not install and it says "Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log" the jog file says
Suddenly after a long time with fedora (now with fedora 15), bluetooth and wifi not working on my laptop (now I'm connected to cable), I checked the network in console doing this:#systemctl status network.serviceAnd response:network.service - LSB: Bring up/down networkingLoaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/network)Active: failed since Sat, 03 Sep 2011 21:18:24 +0200; 1min 50s agoProcess: 2949 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)CGroup: name=systemd:/system/network.serviceInstead I do the same query with the bluetooth service and gives me all OK, but does not work, I do not
The Wifi is connected to my router but it still will not let me access the Internet or any other Internet based operation. (I am running 10.04, I had just installed and and now am trying to get the internet connection running)
I have a Dell Mini 10v with a fresh install of latest Ubuntu Netbook Edition. I have enabled proprietary drivers in order to get the WiFi card to work and managed to connect at home, starbucks etc. Good stuff.
For some reason I can detect but not connect to the WiFi at work - I get prompted for the pword and after entering it the WiFi indicater will pulse for a while only to return to the pword prompt. yes, I have the right pword and can connect my iPhone and other laptops. I am really puzzled by this and really need to get on the WiFi at work - wired connection works.
my colleague has the same dell model with windows 7 installed and is able to connect fine - I really don't want that @@@@ installed just to get WiFi. I know password entry error is the obvious solution but I connect new windows devices to it routinely and had other people try too.
I have an HP DV6 3143se which has a Ralink 3090 wifi card in it.the only thing that doesn't work at the moment is the Wifi. I tried installing the Linux backports module, but the trouble is that sometimes, my home wifi network is shown on the list of available networks and most often, it's not. when the network does show up, and i click on it and enter my WPA2 password, it takes ages to handshake and then it tells me that my password is wrong. the same password works in windows 7 so something's not working.
when i try to disable and re enable wireless network on the network manager applet, i get a Wireless device not ready or Network manager not running message.
i'm running Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit on an Acer Aspire 3050 laptop with an Atheros AR5BMB5 WiFi card.
The problem i'm having is that the hardware switch to turn the WiFi on and off isn't working right. When I hit the switch to turn it off, the light doesn't turn off, and Ubuntu just disconnects from the network and searches for more WiFi networks - it doesn't say that the WiFi has been deactivated, and I don't think it is. When I hit the switch again, it finds my network and connects to it.
The lspci -v | less command gives me the following information for the WiFi:
Code: 08:04.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01) Subsystem: AMBIT Microsystem Corp. Device 0418 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 168, IRQ 21
It lists a different model of card, but it's using what I assume is the correct driver, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I've checked the card itself and it is a AR5BMB5.
I would like to fix it so the switch actually turns the WiFi off instead of just making it search for more networks (I assume it's not actually turning off), and perhaps make the light turn off as it should as well.
I have some serious trouble getting the Wireless connection working, using Fedora 13 on a Dell XPS M1710 laptop which has an Intel Pro Wireless 3945 ABG adapter. I have previously tried an earlier version of Fedora I think it was version 10, where it worked flawlessly out of the box, but all versions since then, simply wont work properly. I got the Fedora 12 64 bit working at some stage, after using hours and hours trying to get it working, and suddenly it did. Don't know what suddenly made it work, since I haven't made any new changes, just re-checked the old ones. But I needed to use Skype which is only in 32 bit, so I had to reinstall to a 32 bit version, and then couldn't get it working again.
I can get it to work with any Windows version, no problems. I have also tried with PCBSD version 7.x, 8.0 and today I tried the new 8.1 just to see if that worked to, an no problemos, it works perfectly out of the box, I could set it up in 5 minutes, even though I don't have any previous knowledge of PCBSD, other than a few short trial installs.
It has to be said that I am a newbee to any Unix/Linux, so I don't know how to troubleshoot properly, and have only tried a few things which I have picked up from other forums. But unfortunately nothing seems to work. The first thing I did after a clean install was I looked in the Fedora 13 documentation, that says I should check that the NetworkManager is controling the interface, I tried to start up NetworkManager but nothing happens, no reaction what so ever. I tried rebooting and then restarting NetworkManager, but no matter what I try, I won't work, not even if I am using the root account.
I noticed right after the install, that there was a choice of connecting to a hidden network in the lower right corner of the screen, but while I have been trying to get the NetworkManager to work, it has suddenly disappeared (I have disabled SSID broadcast on my Linksys router. I've tried to run lsmod and it seems like the right firmware is running, I think it was called IWL3945 or something like that. I think there were around 3 such modules running, plus a Dell module.
Another important note, before I even touched the the WIFI, I connected to the Internet via my normal fixed LAN connection, and installed all the updates that were available and rebooted the system. I am using an LinkSys WAG354G V2 ADSL router, where I have disabled SSID broadcast. Is there a kind soul out there, who has a good idea of what the problem is, or a good idea of how to troubleshoot it ? since a laptop without a WIFI connection is not of much use to me.
