Ubuntu Networking :: Get A Wireless-N Card And Asked Specifically If The One Recommened Was Supported?
Jul 17, 2010
I need to know the best Wireless card for Ubuntu. One that is supported without the "wrapper" and is supported out of the box. I know that the Wireless-N is not supported well in Ubuntu without a wrapper.
(I went to Best Buy to get a wireless-N card and asked specifically if the one they recommened was supported. They said yes. And I now doing research I find it is not.) I need to get my Unbuntu Linux desktop up and working on wireless as soon as possible.
I'm thinking of adding a wireless antenna to my desktop since I want to get rid of the cable going outside my window into the other room. I know some cards have trouble with their drivers or performance in Ubuntu so I was wondering if there's a way of finding the best brand and model to get so I know I won't have any problems with it on my Ubuntu installation. A webpage, a place where people post their cards and how good they perform or something like that which can help me get the easiest one to work with. The card would be installed via PCI and the room with the router is pretty much in front of this one.
Until this morning, my Wireless had always been working fine. This morning I rebooted after an Ubuntu update and now:
- I am asked twice for "enter password for keyring 'default' to unlock" whereas before I was always just asked once.
- The connection seems to be established, with the icon showing good reception and the tooltip reads "Wireless network connection 'mywifi' active: mywifi (100%)
BUT I can not connect to any website or ping the machines of my network, even by IP address. All of the other computers around (Mac, Windows) can use the Wireless as usual. My Wireless is WPA-PSK TKIP hidden SSID. My Ubuntu is 10.10 Maverick.
Had a hard drive fail this week, and I am going to order a new one. I am using $150 dollars in Best Buy gift certificates. Well seeing as how I have some left over I would like to get a usb wireless adapter that would work out of the box (preferably usb although I could always get an internal). All Best Buy has are wireless N cards and I was wondering if anyone knows if any Wireless N USB cards work out of the box without downloading firmware or NDISwrapper.
Can anyone suggest a wireless-N adapter (USB or PCI) that is well supported under F13? And do you think an upgrade from G to N is worth it? I'm probably going to upgrade my router to N in any case as the old one is buggy and/or dying.
I have a desktop that has a d-link DWL-520 wireless card, which was working under Windoze. Today I installed Centos 5.4 on the system , which went cleanly. I then used Network Configuration to set up the wireless card. I specified to use DHCP, set the SSID and authentication password. When I tried to activate the card I get these error messages
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0.
The hardware manager seems to have correctly identified the card and chipset, (Intersil Prism 2.5) and installed driver hostap_pci which came with the distro. This web site seems to suggest that this is the correct driver: [URL] searching forums I've found a few references to these errors, but they were from several years ago, and for different distros and cards. I did find a reference to using Network Manager to configure the card instead of Network Configuration. I started the NM service and configured a connection using it instead, but still no luck.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Server. I can't get my Wireless Card & Wired Card to work at the same time. My interfaces file is incorrect, when I comment out 1 of the interfaces the other works. I have attached my interfaces file.
I have lenovo thinkpad, T61 with Intel 4965AGN wireless card. It is a N card, it works under N mode in windwos, but not in Ubuntu (10.10). I installed ndiswrapper and got the windows xp drivers for this card. the issue is that i got an error when installing the drivers and since then I cannot use wireless.
The error i got is: Code: Module could not be loaded. Error was: FATAL: Could not read '/lib/modules/2.6.35-24-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or director I unistalled the driver, but now under network connections no wireless connections appear, nothing. I cannot use wirless anymore.
Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.
The problem with my wireless network. I have Dell DV6 Pavilion 2115 eg laptop and i installed Ubuntu 11.4 and internet and wireless worked, until i reboted my system it has disapear. I cant no longer to connect to a wireless network. It dont shows me any wireless network. My wireless card is Atheros AR 9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi Adapter
I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.
Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.
have a dell Inspiron 1501 with ubuntu 10.0.4 I want to rename my wireless card from eth1 to wlan0 as I use conkyrc and it will not read my wireless strength or my ssid cuz it thinks it's a ethernet card and not wireless card. I know this for a fact because peppermint os my wireless card was wlan0 and it worked just fine.
In Fedora 10, I cannot get to the installer because it shows these messed up strips graphics (its not due to my graphic card, my graphic card is supported 7600gt) in non-quiet install it shows logical errors and i/o errors.
I have an intranet server behind a NAT router. Very standard linksys router home setup. The server has a static IP. I used port forwarding in the router to use SSH and log into the server remotely - it works OK.
I want no one outside my home network to access any webpages on the server unless they're authenticated.. I know I could port forward like with ssh but with http port 80 and then see webpages , but again this would open it up to anyone with my cable modem's IP - wouldn't it?
I need a secure way like SSH that requires a password before anyone could access port 80 and http from the server from a remote network.
How do I do this? And on the local network people can get served pages normally as usual. Just remote would need authentication. Must be commonly done(?)
I have about 60 old PC's that have an 8X AGP slot. What used/old AGP video cards are there that are supported, that are cheap and will provide a 1280x768 (or there abouts) for a generic lcd wide screen display?I've seen several Dell nVidea 5200 w/64mb AGP cards for under $10.
I recently read over here: Getting Your Wireless to Work : "For example, open-source firmware for the Broadcom BCM4306/3 BCM4318, and BCM4311/1 was just released. Future openSUSE versions will be able to include this firmware and those devices will work immediately..." I am looking for PCI cards for desktops. Besides the list of supported chipsets at [URL], is there a brand name list with firmware support by OSS 11.3? At the moment, I have a Netgear WG311v3 which believe has been causing system instabilities in both linux and windoze: 01:06.0 Ethernet Controller : Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11 b/g Wireless [11ab:1faa] (rev 03)
I just upgraded to natty last night, and everything is working fine except for the network manager. I can enable and configure the wireless card via bash, but the network manager widget will not manage the wireless card.
When I first boot up, the "Enable wireless" check box is greyed out. After I enable the card via the terminal, the "Enable wireless" check box becomes ungreyed, but every time I click it, it instantly unchecks itself. I feel like Currly from the Three Stoogies. Check, uncheck, Check, uncheck.. "Slaps face repeatedly."
I'm working right now with a newly installed Lucid 64-bit. Everything it's fine, but I would like to use the dual monitor for my work, and so I decided to ask to buy me a video card, since what I have now is an onboard graphic that doesn't allow me to do it. I don't need to play games (well I don't think my boss will be happy about it ), and I would rather go for a not expensive solution. But I have some doubts regarding the compatibility with my linux. I found several things on the web, but nothing regarding the video cards that I individuated. If the card is auto detected, it would be better of course.
The cards I was interested are:
ASUS RADEON HD4350 1GB DDR2 SAPPHIRE RADEON HD5450 512MB DDR3
But then i've seen on the web you might have problems with ATI in linux and so I went looking also for Nvidia which I found is generally better implemented under linux: ASUS GEFORCE GT 210 512MB DDR2
PALIT GEFORCE GT 220 SUPER 512MB DDR2 I don't have many models among which to choose, because of some conventions at my workplace. The tables of compatibility with ubuntu that I found are all related with much more expensive models, or models that I don't have in my lists. Could somebody tell me if one (or more) of the cards mentioned above work under ubuntu 10.6 64-bit? I have a Hewlett Packard system with:
HP 3674h motherboard Intel core2 duo 3.16 GHz 8Gb RAM 250 HD
I have a lenovo ideapad z570 with intel i5 2nd gen 2410m processor and intel integrated graphics. In lshw, my graphics are shown as: "2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller"
Code: glxinfo| grep render returns: Code: direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile GEM 20100330 DEVELOPMENT x86/MMX/SSE2 Compiz works fine, so do some 2D games. However, performance is choppy on most other games(2D and 3D).
Are these graphics fully supported by Ubuntu yet? If not, does any other linux flavour have support for this?
The only thing I do not like is the reason my graphics card is not supported. I have an ATI x700Pro. Is there any linux that supports this graphics card?? I have tried Fedora,OpenSUSE, Puppy Linux, Ubuntu, and none seems to work.
I can't believe you guys are on 10.10 Already that's amazing been so many changes since I last joined in 2007. I have a few questions regarding my new laptop and Ubuntu I was hoping to get answered before I make the switch from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 10.10 Small tidbit: Using 64x Ubuntu Question #1: Will my ATI HD5730 Graphics Card be Supported?
- When I say supported I also mean some of the features, I Currently use a 62" LCD 1080p HDTV as my Monitor using an HDMI Output to my Surround Sound Receiver. Will I still be able to do this? and will my 5.1 audio output still work? Noticed when I googled it some people were having troubles with 5730
Question #2: Is the Core i7 840qm Supported?
Question #3: Has any large scale break troughs happened with Ubuntu and Gaming? Back when it was Gusty and Hardy there was little high end game choice, wondering if that has made any progress?
Question #4: Have people had Success with Ubuntu and Dell Studio XPS?
I'm looking for recommendations for a controller card with support for around 8 devices using SFF-8087 cables. I currently have a AOC-SASLP-MV8 [URL] which while working "OK" still has known problems with drivers. Can anyone recommend a card they use for a storage box? I'm using software raid.
