Ubuntu Networking :: Hp Pavilion Dm4-1173cl Wireless Connection Is Not Working?
Jan 22, 2011
I have just installed Maverick meekat on my new laptop with Wubi, and I have been trying to setup my wireless connection, but i couldnt. The first thing I tried was going to System>Prefrences>network connections, and clicking on the wireless tab. I tried to add a network think manyally, and I miserably failed.
here is the information I have of my laptop as of now after doing the lspci command in the terminal:
Also I have read somethings about ndis or using the windows driver and things of that sort. Whenever I am using windows, my wireless connection is working perfectly. So I dont know if there is a specific way to activate my drivers, or if my computer is just not capable of having wireless connection on Ubuntu.
I just installed ubuntu 9.10 on my HP Pavilion (dv7-3017). Problem is that I have no wireless connection.When pressing wireless button the light stays orange instead of turning blue. My paviion is using Atheros network card. I'm linux newbie so it would great if you could out solving this problem.
My wireless LAN connection on this machine occasionally stops working. The network traffic bar shows periodic very small transmissions but the failure of all network dependent applications (Firefox, package manager, etc.) indicates to me that the machine is no longer talking to the net. I can fix it by reselecting my home network in nm-applet from the drop-down list. This causes the machine to disconect, reconnect and all is well for some random period of time thereafter. Here's some data:I'm running an HP Pavillion laptop.
~$ lspci | grep Wireless 02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)
I don't know if this is related or not, but a couple of months ago I unsuccessfully attempted to share a hotel's wired Internet connection over my wireless card. I may have hosed some settings or it could be unrelated.The "unknown interface" portion of the restart attempt is interesting but I don't know enough to fix it.
I installed lucid lynx on my hp pavilion dm4 laptop, very happy with it. My wireless is not working though (I have ethernet working), I have looked for drivers for the Broadcom card that's supposed to pick it up, the light is orange. I have seen that many people have this problem, tried their solutions to no avail. I have ndiswrapper installed and have found some drivers that detect the hardware, still not getting wireless.
This is my output lshw -C network output: Code: rho@Schwarzschild:~$ lshw -C network WARNING: you should run this program as super-user. *-network description: Ethernet interface product: RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet control vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 Logical name: eth0 Version: 03 Serial: d8:d3:85:28:a9:fb Width: 64 bits Clock: 33MHz Capabilities: bus_master cap_list ethernet physical Configuration: broadcast=yes driver=r8169 driverversion=2.3LK-NAPI ip=192.168.1.69 latency=0 multicast=yes Resources: irq:31 ioport:2000(size=256) memory:b0404000-b0404fff(prefetchable) memory:b0400000-b0403fff(prefetchable) *-network UNCLAIMED description: Network controller product: Broadcom Corporation vendor: Broadcom Corporation physical id: 0 Bus info: pci@0000:02:00.0 Version: 01 Width: 64 bits Clock: 33MHz Capabilities: bus_master cap_list Configuration: latency=0 Resources: memory:b2400000-b2403fff
When I press the red LED touch button below the screen to turn it on, nothing happens. Also the LED that indicates that the wireless is on stays red and does not turn blue. I have dual boot on and tested it under Windows 7 where everything works fine, so I know the internal wireless card and touch key is working. Just not in OpenSuse. I am using the KDE plasma desktop.
For some reason, ubuntu cannot find local wireless networks. In fact, the Broadcom wireless card Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n seems to be incompatible with ubuntu. I've tried numerous 'solutions' on the Internet, but none of them seem to work on my computer. Tutorials I've visited have recommended downloading the b43 drivers from the Synaptic package manager and also the bcmwl-kernal-source package. Nevertheless, the wireless never turns on and Additional Drivers never shows anything at all. After several exasperating hours of trying to get my wireless running I've decided to turn to the forum for help. I'm sure there's probably more information I should supply, but I'm honestly not sure what that would be.
I'm recent to Ubuntu and have just installed version 10.04 32bits desktop version along side my Windows XP.My wireless internet connection works perfectly under Windows XP as this thread can prove it, but it does not work on Ubuntu.When checking the connections on Ubuntu I see:Wireless Network - disconnected.
Recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on HP Pavillion ze5400.Wireless card is bcm94306MP. Wireless connection shows as disconnected. I am troubleshooting using the Ubuntu documentation on solving wifi problems. Ran ishw and it appears I do not have a driver properly installed. Obtained what I believe is the driver: bcmwl5.inf and bcmwl5.sys. Installed bcmwl5.inf using ndisgtk. I know its there as I can see it in System>admin>windows wireless drivers. However lshw still does not show it under configuration. I understand I must put the sys file in the same folder as where this inf file got installed. I assume all I do is copy and paste it into that folder. Is this correct? Next I need to find that folder. I tried the command find /home -name bcmwl5.inf and it did not show up. Can someone educate me just how to do this, that is find the folder and insert the sys file?
After I pass this hurdle then I will tackle trying to configure the card.
I'm using a WUSB54GC network adapter to connect to my home wireless network. My network was not visible, so I added it and it shows connected, but when I launch the browser, I can't get a connection. I'm using Ubuntu 10.4. All other computers on the network connect fine and I disabled my firewall to see if that made a difference.
About a week ago I upgraded to Maverick from Lucid.
All networking worked fine on Lucid.
I am using an Acer Laptop with the Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter.
I can connect to my home network (visible, with WPA2-Personal) fine. However, I cannot connect to my university's wireless network. The only difference I noticed is that its network is using WPA2 Entreprise with Tunneled TLS Authentication and MSCHAPv2.
I have a cisco linksys wireless adapter (WUSB600n) which, most of the time, great when booting up. But mostly after some time (1min- 1hr.) it disconnects. When checking the status I can see some of the networks around me, including mine. But selecting it doesn't do anything. I searched the forums and tried:
sudo dhclient and sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
But still no connection; the only thing that helps is rebooting.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - Lucid Lynx(great interface!). But I am experiencing a very weird problem. The wireless internet works just fine at my apartment. But when I am in my school, it just stops working at all. It didn't use to be like that. It used to work in school too few weeks before. But I don't know what happened all of a sudden. I have checked with my school system administrator to know if there has been any change with the network. He said the network has always been the same.
I just installed Ubunto 9.10 on my HP Pavilion ZE9400 laptop (more specifically a ze4930us) that was formerly running Windoze XP. Right now, I'm using my Win 7 desktop machine. The problem with the laptop is that Linux can't connect to my wireless network. It seems that it can't see the wireless card. When I tap the button on the laptop case, a little blue light normally switches on and off to indicate whether the wireless card is enabled or not, but that light doesn't come on. I suppose I need a HP/Ubuntu driver. Any advice, links, etc?
BTW, I also went to the HP site to download a driver, but Linux isn't one of the OSs that they support and have no drivers.
i have got an HP Pavilion g6-1142sl and i installed on it ubuntu 11.04. i have some problems with the wireless. i have already read a post on this forum wich explained how to get drivers here the link: [URL] i got them and the wireless started working (a month ago) now, a couple of days ago it stopped working when i did a restart due to an automatic update. and that is what i can see with terminal:
what can i do in order to have a working wireless? i am sorry if my english is not properly good but i am italian.
I just finished upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 via the Update Manager. My first noticeable problem is that my wireless connection with my home network no longer functions on my IBM Thinkpad T42 laptop.The Network Manager applet shows that it detects my home network (and those of several of my neighbors), but I have not been able to get it to connect to this network. I've been using WPA & WPA2 Personal settings for security, and the Network Manager applet had correctly picked up the password that I had been using under 9.10. I've searched the Ubuntu Forums for "wireless T42" and thought I'd found a solution in a posting that recommended using the "wcid" network manager, but I've been unable to find wcid either via the Synaptic Package Manager or the Ubuntu Software Center.
1. I've noticed that in Lucid Lynx the Network Manager applet's icon in the top panel is no longer the vertical bars symbol that it displayed in Karmic Koala; instead, the icon is a radiating fan display. In the Network Manager's edit Network Connections window, this fan icon is shown on the Wireless Connection tab, while the vertical bars icon is shown on the Mobile Broadband tab.
2. The Wireless Connection tab shows, on the line in which it shows awareness of my home wireless network (as "Auto 389690") that this connection was "Last Used" "1 month ago". It should be saying something like "today".
FWIW, the Network Manager detected my wired "eth0" connection with no difficulty.Both Jaunty and Karmic picked up my home wireless connection without any problems. Now I have no idea what to try next.
I have a new installation of Ubuntu 10.10 on my Aspire 1640Z, and since I have it, it's impossible to connect it to the web. I have a wireless connection on a SFR Neufbox (I'm french and it's a french box I guess). I've tried to be connected with a Sagem key. I have another computer with Windows XP, which is connected wireless with the same kind of key. When I use Network Manager, there isn't any automatic connection : "no network connection" and when I click on the logo of Network Manager, I can't click neither on "<<filaire>> network" nor "wireless network".
I also used Wifi-Radar, but there isn't any connection again. I created a new network on it, with the SSIF, code WPA, MAC.. But there's no connection and when I try "connect" it writes "could not get IP adress" (even if I'm in DHCP). I went to Syst�me > Administration > Network Tools > P�riph�riques > Interface ethernet (eth1) > Configurer > Wireless and I've writen the WPA, SSIF etc. again of my box, without any result. Here is what I have in the terminal with
I have a laptop Acer aspire 5100. I installed Ubuntu a while ago and it was working well. Last week I updated it using Update manager and ever since I haven't been able to connect either wireless or wired connection.
I have a problem with my wireless connection in ubuntu (natty with amd64bit) There seems to be intermittent disruption in my connection. Havent seen a pattern as yet, though it happens once a day. After that I cant get it to work at all and only restarting + reconnecting the USB device helps. Dont know what is going on.I have already read these pages : Commands and Wireless Troubleshooting.Here is my line of though1) Given that I am able to connect other devices to it while I am not able to connect through this desktop, I think the router is OK.2) I am able to work with it after restart + re-connection . And so the driver is OK and is loaded. The driver seems to be oK and loaded even while I am not able to connect.So why is this happening and how can I get this under control without having to reboot and re-connect the device everytime.Here are the output for the commands which will give you a more detailed idea of the process. Before reboot while I was not able to connect:

I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.
I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.
Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.
As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience. ---- EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working. ----- EDIT 2: found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.
I have a very strange problem with Fedora 12 and my wireless Broadcom 4311 card.After the installation of Fedora 12 the wireless card was visible but not activated. I did an extensive search in Internet and finally I got everything done. The card was visible and activated. I found my home network; the strength of the signal was nearly 100%.The problem is that although the card is visible and activated my browser is not working well. I can say that it is not working at all. Even now I am using other computer to write this message because Firefox cannot load any web page at all.
The strange part of the problem comes with the fact that when I open terminal window and when I am using yum everything looks OK. The speed is very low though.Does anybody have some ideas about the problem and its solution?When I use Windows on the very same computer everything is fine, the Internet speed is close to the maximum limits of my provider's speed which is 10 mbps.
I have a dual boot (XP Pro and F13) laptop. This laptop has a Ralink RT2501USB Wireless Adapter which works perfectly fine on XP. But when it comes to F13, adapter only works properly when I am physically next to my router. When I move few feet away the strength of the connection drops from 100% to around 40%. But even though 40% should be okay for slow connection to internet, I can't get any internet access at all. I have tried three different routers with same results on each.
When I boot same machine with windows XP, all works fine. I can move to any part of my house and I will still have the connection without any issues.I can see that RT73 driver is installed if I check in add remove program under system.I am not an expert but to me its seems that the drivers on F13 for RT2501USB are not as good as on windows?
I'm using Archlinux with NetworkManager to connect to the internet. When I'm in my room, I've an ethernet cable and still receive the wireless signal.Sometimes (like when we have a power cut, somebody is rebooting the router or simply something wrong with the provider), I'm disconnected during a few seconds, NetworkManager ask me again the password of the wireless (even if it remembers it), and then I'm ok.But when I'm not in front of my computer, while I haven't push the button "ok", it doesn't connect, even with the wired connection.That's not very normal in my opinion as there is supposed to have two different and independent connection. No ?
I intent to install an ssh server on my computer but if I cannot access it every time there is a problem that won't be very useful.
I recently installed ubuntu in my laptop using a usb stick. everything seems to be working fine except the wireless connection. the notification area doesnt show wireless network at all. i tried browsing many forums n folled the steps suggested but in vain. with the command
sudo lshw -C network i get result as: unclaimed
so, i tried using windows wireless driver (its Broadcom). i cannot install the ndisgkt package from the package manager. The package is shown but when i try to install, the package manager shows 'In Progress' and nothing happens. Hence, System → Administration → Windows Wireless Drivers is not displayed at all.
If a driver can be downloaded n installed, how to do that. I would download the wireless driver from my windows OS n install in ubuntu.
I have ubuntu 9.10 and my wireless connection has been working perfectly until a few weeks ago when I updated my laptop. I can connect to the internet using my wired cable but not by wireless. There is nothing listed under my wireless list. I am new to this and have been unsuccessful in getting my wireless connection going again. I don't even know were to begin. I have a 2wire modem also.
I've been using a RealTek 8190 PCI wireless card on my desktop in Ubuntu 10.04. The net819xp driver worked fine in ndiswrapper. Then my housemates got a new router and switched our wireless SSID & password. In network manager, I can see the SSIDs, but when I try to connect to our SSID, it continues trying to connect but never does connect. Something related to the router change and router firmware upgrade created this problem and i'm sure i need to fix it on my computer. All my windows7 flatmates are connecting with no problem. Right now I'm using my laptop, so i can't copy & paste results from terminal commands,
I downloaded ubuntu 11.04 on my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop and the wifi on it doesn't work. I'm running it in parallel with windows xp and the wifi works find on windows (as it has always done) but once I boot the laptop in ubuntu, it doesn't recognise anything, no driver, nothing.
get the wifi working in ubuntu on my laptop. Ubuntu is pretty much useless to me if I can't get the wifi to work on it.
I buy a new usb network adapter (Through DX), when I try to use it in ubuntu or BackTrack4 Final it is working, and connecting networks even with WPA encryption. But after few minuts it stops working totally. It is showing that I'm connected to the AP but web sites do not respond.
Notes: - I have another PCI Wireless adapter which works fine.
- The problematic adapter works great on windows.
- A driver CD came with it, including a linux driver which I wasn't succesfully installed.
- A BackTrack3 Disc came with it, claming by the instructions that the adapter will work with it. I didn't try it because i have backtrack 4 final.
It took me dozens of surfing the web hours, and too many restarts,
I'm having some problems with my wireless connection. I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, on a HP ProBook 4520s, with a RaLink RT3090 wireless network card. I installed the drivers (hopefully correctly), the wireless seems to work correctly, it scans and finds networks, but when I try to connect to one, it times out after some time, while still attempting to connect. I also have a wired connection that works correctly and without problems. Other computers that try to connect to said wireless network manage to do so without any problems, so this has left me a bit baffled, since, like I said, everything seems to be in order.
I'm a new Ubuntu user, so please tell me what other information I need to provide in order to easily and successfully facilitate troubleshooting this, because it is, as you can imagine, quite aggravating, having a laptop that needs to be connected to the internet through a cable.
This laptop arrived in the post yesterday and everything on f15 works out of the box except wireless.Digging out an old ethernet cable I was finally able to get wireless working by doing the following: First install ndiswrapper. We'll be using rpmfusion for this so you'll need to
After a reboot it all loaded and worked fine, just remember to make sure the little light on the f12 button is blue, not red. This guide should work for other laptops and other distros as well (though obviously you'll likely need a different driver file to start off with).
A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.
Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:
1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.
2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).
3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.
