Ubuntu Networking :: Linksys Wireless G Won't Connect
Mar 25, 2010
My first Ubuntu/Mythbuntu install. Installed OS, plugged in linksys wireless G adapter. It finds the network but cannot connect. Discovered wireless priviledges while setting up admin/user accounts. Should be ready to go. or not, I'm thinking it needs a driver but
1) in linux? certainly not in Fedora.
2) If it can see the network it doesn't need a driver,
My settings are wrong or I'm missing something. SSID is set in settings. Do I need mac address and BSSID?
i cant connect to my wireless network... im using karmic. Ive searched and found quite a lot of threads but arent sure where to start. I have a Linksys wusb600n, and are trying to connect to my network. It detects the network fine but doesnt connect.
I've tried it using the Ubuntu 9.10 live CD (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) and while the adapter can see wireless networks, it can't connect to them. It asks me for my WPA2 key, but after trying to connect for about 30 seconds it asks me for it again. I've read other threads about this issue but they were kind of confusing.
I just need to know whether the adapter will work and if so, how to get it to connect. I'm so sick of Windows and I'd love to switch to Linux, but I won't be able to if I can't get my adapter to work.
Edit: I just noticed the sticky about posting wireless tickets. I'm sorry, I don't have time to post it right now, but I will post all of that information when I get back.
I have an Acer Aspire 1 Netbook - this is running UBUNTU- When I try to connect to my Linksys Router in wireless mode it asks for password - but doesnt accept. I can see the Linksys in network manager plus several other networks in the vicinity. My other wireless devices all connect O.K. to the Linksys, and accept my password.. I can hard wire by ethernet to the netbook. Just wireless is the problem
i installed ubuntu 10.04 from internet.but i cant connect to my wireless router linksys wrh54g ver 1.0,but if i using Local area connection its working,however my wireless connection working in my other os win xp.
Linksys WUSB54GP Not Found, Can't Connect to Wireless - 10.04 Lucid Lynx
I am having a problem setting up my wireless on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) on my desktop computer using a Linksys Wireless-G Portable USB Adapter WUSB54GP.
The wireless has run fine on my Thinkpad X60s laptop running Lucid and with my desktop and the same USB adapter in Karmic (9.10). When I installed Lucid as an upgrade on the desktop, I could not see the adapter listed at all and could not connect wirelessly to the internet.
if I need to install drivers, edit a file, or do something else to get this working I couldn't find anything useful to actually solve my problem after searching for a while.
This should be all the important desktop system specs: Linksys Wireless-G Portable USB Adapter WUSB54GP -- not found; can't connect to wireless internet Lucid Lynx 10.04 (straight install from CD from Canonical)
I recently tried to install Crunchbang on my IBM Thinkpad T20 laptop. Everything went OK as far as I can tell (I still have to adjust acpi and display settings), but I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet via wireless (wired connection works fine). I've done a good deal of searching online, and I realize that my wireless adapter (wpc54gs, bcm4318 chipset) is problematic in linux, and that b43-fwcutter is typically required. I did install b43-fwcutter, and it seemed to install OK, but nothing subsequently happened when I opened networkmanager. I'm not sure at this point if my problem is that I don't know how to configure any wireless adapter in crunchbang, or if it is that my particular adapter is not being recognized.
My old ubuntu laptop beeps 3 time on startup and then freezes. This forced me to install 10.04 on a new laptop. Now I can't get the linksys wpc54gs ver 2 to get connect. I can see the router with a padlock by it. I pretty sure I have the correct password in the right spot. I can access the internet with the wire connection. I'm sure it something simple I forgot from before when the card was working in the old laptop.
I am a complete novice with Ubuntu trying it with a "Live CD" on a Compaq Presario 1700 (P3/700MHz/512MB) with a LinkSys "Wireless-G Notebook Adaptor with SRX400" (Model WPC54GX4 - using Windows drivers LSSRX4.bin & LSSRX42.sys, Airgo Networks Version 188.8.131.52).The PWR" and "Link" lights are "ON".This card works fine with WinXP.I have tried to set it up using the Network Tools and "editing" data into the "Network Manager Applet" (entered SSID, and a "WPA & WPA2 Personal" password), but no improvement.
My OS is Linux Xubuntu 11.04 (32 bits) and I'm trying to get Linksys Wusb600n network adapter to work. I followed this post and did all that was written in it... almost. When i came to blacklisting, I blacklisted all drivers that starts with rtx (where x is any digit). Here are lines that I pasted in blacklist.conf:
The problem: I do see all available networks. So I guess... it somehow works. Anyway, problem is that it does not connect successfully to my network. I click on it - it asks my password. I enter it and click 'Connect'. Nothing, except that network icon is started to like spin around (trying to connect, I guess), happens. After few minutes, it asks for password.... again. I enter it and all starts from the beginning. Its like a loop! Note: I don't have any other things installed except linux-firmware-nonfree_1.9_all.deb and, don't know how successfully, but RT3572USB 184.108.40.206.
Previously I had my desktop hooked up to a nearby router via an ethernet cord with my parents' computer having a wireless usb adapter to connect (This thing: [uRL]). We just moved and our setup has reversed (router is near their computer, I am using the usb adapter). I just installed the latest Ubuntu and now I can't get the usb adapter to work. I'm very new to Linux and I have no idea what to do. I think this is the same usb adapter.
I have a linksys wireless-b wmp11 network card. Can anyone tell me how to get this up and running? Maverick is up to date as of yesterday and I have the cd that came with the card. I have no way to access the internet on the machine. I am typing this from my laptop.
I have a dual partition with xp pro, and Ubuntu 10.04. It really is amazing, and i plan on erasing everything and starting over new again, this time just ubuntu. with windows, i have a Linksys Compact Wireless G usb Network Adapter with speedbooster ver.2. it works in windows from the CD, but its for windows. ive tried ndiswrapper-utils, ndiswrapper-common and ndisgtk downloads and it opened the program, but sat with the spinning circle for 5 seconds then faded to grey. HOW do i get this to work? i'm in a hurry, as i am leaving for vacation in florida, and i have the only laptop in the house and we bring it every year. If there is something easy (or complicated but with step by step) that i could use to get the driver for my usb network thingy,
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.10 and everything seems to be working fine, but I can't seem to connect to my wireless network. I am able to see the wireless networks nearby, so I'm guessing that means the drivers are fine and the hardware is working. When I try to connect, I am seeing the wireless networks of my neighbors, but mine isn't showing. So I manually enter the information in and try to connect, but it doesn't seem to connect. I enter the WEP key and it attempts, then the WEP key screen pops up again, as if I entered the key incorrectly. I've tried many times and I'm 100% certain my key is correct. By the way, the chipset is: Ralink RT61 Which means it really should just work out of the box.
I am completely new to Linux and have just installed Xubuntu on an old HP machine. Until I buy a long enough ethernet cord to reach my router upstairs, I would like to try to make use of a Linksys wireless USB network adapter that I have (WUSB11 ver. 2.. I looked around online and I got pretty confused. I don't know where to start.
I have an HP PSC2110 that is connected to a Linksys WPSM54G wireless print server. Printing works great, no issues what so ever. I am wondering if anyone has been able to configure the scanner to work that way as well. If I connect the PSC2210 to my laptop via USB, XSane sees the scanner and works perfectly. I am trying to figure out if there is a way for XSane to see the scanner through the Linksys PS?

I have a Linksys Wireless-G USB Network Adapter, 2.4 GHz, 802.11g. It hooks up through USB plug, and when I originally plugged it in I got the message that ubuntu didn't support the drivers, but haven't seen it since. I'm hooked up to a LAN cable right now, and can't seem to figure out how to hook up through wireless with this device. Or I just don't know how. When I click on the network connections button on the top right corner (the two computers). I can see my Wired Internet, but no wireless. When I type lsusb in a terminal I get : (sorry I don't know how to do code blocks) So it is recognizing that it's there, but maybe I just don't know how to use it. Also, I'm running Ubuntu Release 10.04 (lucid).
I have a AE1000 wireless adapter and Ive been using it or about 4 months on windows xp. Yesterday I installed ubuntu 10.10 and it won't work It won't connect to the internet and won't even show signs that it is turned on.
I have a Linksys WAG54G2 Router - this is set up and was working fine with Xp and my Apple I phone.I have just changed over from XP to Ubuntu, and am having difficulty in configuring wireless settings to accept UBUNTU.The hard wired Ethernet connection works fine.
I've got an old laptop wich wireless adapter is a Gigabyte GN-WI01 GS MINI PCI(its chipset is Realtek RTL8169/8110, I believe) and I'm not able to make it run in Wifislax 3.1 Live CD. I downloaded the linux drivers for it and tried to install them following the instructions but when it came the time to execute configure.sh it told me that I had to actualize some kind of packets first(GK+ or something like that can't remember ). I also have another wireless usb adapter that I tried to use too. It's a Linksys WUSB54g v4(chipset: rt2570). I tried to follow a guide I found about making run an adapter like that on Wifislax 3.1 but when I had to "Force ralink rt73 on rt2500" it doesn't appear on my Live CD version, it appears "Force ralink rt73 on rt2570", dunno if it has something to be but I get an error while making it.
I don't know if it has to be with my laptop, my wireless adapters or my way of following the steps. If it has to be with my adapters I would like to buy some new one(not very expensive) that I won't have any problems running it on Wifislax and that will work on my old laptop(cause I just have that one and can't afford a new one).
Situation is a cable modem and a Belkin F5D8235 Wireless-N router (and a computer) are at one end of the property. Approx 150-200 ft away I want to put 3 desktop computers none of which have a wireless card or device. I DO have a Linksys WRT54G I'm not using.I want to hardwire the 3 desktop computers to a switch that is hard wired to the Linksys. Putting a wireless card in one of the 3 computers is not practical because of physical obstructions (a lot of cabinetry, furniture, walls) that the Linksys (which can be at the window) would not have to deal with.
Is it possible for the Linksys to 'receive' the wireless signal from the Belkin so the 3 desktops can share the internet? If not, what could I put in the window to 'receive' or 'repeat' the wireless signal?I know this isn't exactly a Ubuntu question, except that 2 of the 3 computers are 64bit Lucid.
Ok so I tried to follow the directions here: [URL] However, I couldn't find 2010_0915_RT3572_Linux_STA_v220.127.116.11.tar.bz2. Instead, the closest I could find was 2011_0407_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2 .5.0.2_DPO.bz2, so I tried it. I edited config.mk and rtusb_dev_id.c as chili555 advised. I tried to edit linux_rt.h, however, the only file I saw was rt_linux.h. I edited it according to chili555's post, message #7. I went back to the root directory of the extracted .bz2 file and did
I just installed Fedora again, after a long absence. I have been using XP. I am having issues setting up my wireless card Linksys WMP54G. For some reason the card has been recognized, and the interface is there. But I have tried every walk-trough known to Google, and it still won't work. I have been using the GUI tools, but they don't work. I have also been using the command line walk through, and they aren't working either. Does anyone know which files I need to set and what the process would be?
I recently purchased the Linksys WMP45G wireless card for my desktop (as my router is too far for ethernet cable). I can't get it to work. The NetworkManager icon doesn't appear in the upper-right corner, despite being up-and-running. Here is some output:
