Ubuntu Networking :: Put USB 54Mbps Wireless Network Card Adapter Into Studio- 64 Bit?
Apr 20, 2010
May I put a USB 54Mbps Wireless Network Card Adapter into Ubuntu Studio- 64 bit, does the 64 bit Ubuntu Studio (9.10) support this usb wireless network card adapter? how to let it work in Ubuntu Studio 9.10
I recently installed the latest and greatest Lubuntu 64 bit, because I like lxde and I am planning a system migration. (I am really starting to not like windows 7.) I have some linux experience. I wouldn't say I am awesome at it, but I am comfortable trying anything.
Example: I have used CENTOS 5.6 to make a linux machine server as a glorified router, with asterisks, SIP, SSH server, x windows, GNome, VNC, and a user authentication system. and get this I walked somebody through setting this up over the phone. I reopened the root account (I honestly got tired of typing sudo every other command is the only reason why I opened it.) I plan on closing it after we are done.
lsusb lists the wireless adaptor
Wireless Card Link
I have the driver CD. I installed ndiswrapper.I copied the files from my driver cd to my <home> Directory. Then installed the Windows XP version of the drivers using ndiswrapper -l <driver>. I then made ndiswrapper force the driver to the vendor ID of the wireless card. Using ndiswrapper -a <vendor ID> <Driver>(I did this last night and the vendor ID escapes me. I am at work now.)I finally ran depmod -a and modprobe ndiswrapperI goto the windows wireless driver application, and it shows the driver as loaded and the hardware as found.
However, it still does not list a wireless device in the network manager to where I can connect to my wireless. iwconfig does not show any wireless LAN, but it is still listed in lsusb. Also, the light that shows activity on the wireless device does not light up or blink at all. I have about 6 usb ports on my desktop and have tried everyone. The wireless card also works in Windows 7 64-bit On a strange side note. I do have internet access through LAN, (My laptop is atm a glorified wireless card .)
Ever single thread i have read about this network card and trying to get it to work with Xubuntu has not worked for nothing. I got the NDISwrapper install and what not and a driver but nothing is working. i have no idea what to do i cant get the card to turn on or scan or anything.
The wireless usb adapter connects to my network, and the router is running on mixed mode, except that I cannot seem to get wireless 'n' connection speeds. Both are capable of wireless n. I check the connection info and it is always 54 Mbps. I have set the router wireless on N-only and I lose my connection.Is the standard driver for this usb adapter in Ubuntu 10.4 unable to utilize 'n' speeds?
I recently installed Ubuntu x64 on my dell studio 1535 using the windows installer (wubi).
All seems to be working fine apart from the built in wireless card, the proprietary driver (found in hardware drivers) installs and activates successfully and works perfectly. Until I shut down or restart the system. On the next boot the wireless card is 'disabled' and no longer works.
The card I have is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g
I am going to try a proper install on a second partition rather than using wubi later on but wondered if this was a commonly occuring problem?
The wireless card works as soon as the driver installs, however I am shown a "restart to activate driver" message and after restarting it's dead.
I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).
1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly. 2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page. 3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop. 4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb" 5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it. 6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed. 7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder. 9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present. 10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
Been using Ubuntu for 1 yr now on my Dell Dimension 8250 but a newbie with my Averatec AV3270-EH1 laptop circa 2005. Ubuntu 10.04 does not detect the Integrated WLAN card/adapter. I've looked at all the forums/posts but none had the issue I have. When I type lspci into the terminal i get this back:
00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. K8M800 Host Bridge 00:00.1 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. K8M800 Host Bridge 00:00.2 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. K8M800 Host Bridge
And when I type in iwconfig:
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
I have an HP Pavilion dv5 1002nr laptop running Vista. I decided to install Ubuntu using the windows installer, which did install well, but I decided that it wasn't for me, and uninstalled it. Now, my wireless adapter which is a Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g can see the network, find networks by itself, and is supposedly installed correctly according to Vista, cannot connect to any networks at all despite being able to see them and acquire a signal strength. Up until installing Ubuntu I have never had an issue like this. Other devices have no trouble connecting to this network, and I am currently using a Netgear wireless usb dongle to connect to the very network that my Atheros can not connect to.
I just got a new AZiO AWU212N 802.11n wireless usb adapter (linked below). One of the product reviews said that it works with Ubuntu if you upgrade to the .34 kernel so I thought it would be a good buy. I updated my kernel and Ubuntu detects that there is a wireless adapter, but doesn't detect any networks. My old wireless-g adapter can connect just fine, so I don't know what the problem is.
i just installed Ubuntu 11.04 64bit on my desktop. i have a TP Link TL-WN321G (Ver 4.0) wireless usb adapter to connect to my wireless network (i used to use it with Windows XP).As expected (i'd read up a bit before installing Ubuntu), the adapter was autodetected - i could see my wireless network listed in the networks list dropdown, and lsusb showed it too.lsusb identifies "Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:2070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2070 Wireless Adapter"But i cannot connect to the network. When i select my network, it keeps trying to connect, but never succeeds in connecting.
i tried going through the forums for possible solutions, but most of them deal with how to get it working when the adapter is not detected, or when networks are not shown. Or they are for older Ubuntu versions.i use the same wireless network on my laptop (Ubuntu 9.04), and it has a WPA & WPA2 Personal security, with a password, which i've configured in the desktop as well.
I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 (both 64-bit) and my USB WiFi adapter which previously worked fine stopped working. The adapter is a Hama USB stick based on the Ralink rt73 chipset. I've tried using the Ralink drivers that come with 10.04 (both rt2800usb and rt73usb) but neither work. When I use rt2800usb, the adapter is recognized as interface wlan0, however I can't see any wireless networks. When I use rt73usb (and blacklist rt2800usb to avoid conflicts) I no longer have a wlan0 interface and there is no wireless adapter shown in the network manager. I've pasted in the results of lsmod, lsusb, and ifconfig -a (with MAC addresses removed) below.
I have a Toshiba MX35 laptop it's a little old but does the job. I'm have a problem getting the wireless to work. I can boot a live CD either Ubuntu 10.10 or Fedora 14 and they will see the wireless card. The card is Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01).
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed and that is the OS that is having the problem seeing the wireless. The computer will not handle Ubuntu 10.10 (at least it won't handle the desktop effects under Ubuntu 10.10) but handles them just fine under 9.10 and that's why I have 9.10 installed. I really need the Wifi to work because I'm going to travel in a few days.
I recently switched from Windows XP to a clean install Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 but it seems to be quite a problem to get the wifi up and running. In Windows the nearby network all appeared in network connections but the same section in Ubuntu is empty. So I decided to go with the ndiswrapper guide to solve the problem with an unclaimed driver. After an entire day messing with my computer I'm still not close... Below follows excerpts taken from the Ndiswrapper guide with posted results from my computer. "ndiswrapper won't work until it thinks that your Windows drivers have been properly installed and that they are the appropriate ones for your wireless card. You can run the command: ndiswrapper -l"
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release. WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release. net5211 : driver installed device (168C:0013) present (alternate driver: ath5k)
So I've posted the result the name of my wireless card below: lspci -nn
00:00.0 Host bridge : VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:0259] 00:00.1 Host bridge : VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:1259]
It seems like the network is disabled or unclaimed or both. What to do? I'm stuck after spending an entire day trying to install the wifi. I had no problems in Windows XP but it seems to be quite impossible in Ubuntu.
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
my wireless home network is not recognized by my network card (RealTek RTL8190 mini PCI). The post was as follows: "I am using a new computer with Windows 7 , Athlon quad core 2.60 64 bit, 8GB RAM. Internet conection works fine with ethernet but ubuntu does not see my wireless network. card (RealTek RTL 8190 ID: 10ec:8190). Have searched this forum but unable to come up with a fix. I was looking for windows XP drivers to use Ndiswrapper but could not find a list of .inf files. My network is OK and works perfectly in windows and with my 2 laptops. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Additional info: install was done within Windows using WUBI to a separate partition on my HDD. I am new to this and thouroughly confused as to the procedure for installing the drivers if they are in fact available."
I am very frustrated in that I would like to use Ubuntu 10.04 but it is useless without internet connectability. I am new to linux and do not understand where to get the appropriate drivers or how to install them. I wish someone would answer this post and either give me a clue what to do or just say "give up" and uninstall ubunutu.
I have been running FC8 on this IBM T23 with a D-Link wireless adapter. Using MadWifi this has worked fine with Network Manager disabled. But now I have nuked that installation and replaced it with FC10. Network Manager is nice, and I would like to use it. And it kind-of works. Network Manager recognizes my router and all my neighbor's routers, but I can't connect.
I am running ubuntu server x64 as a router. I currently have 2 LAN cards, eth0 and eth1. and I want to add wireless capabilites to the machine.I was wondering if any of you know which card I could use?I want it to be supported in ubuntu server and it must be n-draft, as it is to replace a Edimax n-draft router.
I want my Ubuntu desktop to have a static ip-address, i have altered the interfaces file to the below and also filled the info regarding my wireless network card but still every time I reboot the desktop gets the ip 10.42.43.1, HOW is that possible???
I use a apple time capsule router, I want my desktop to run a apache server thats why I need the static ip. I also want the static ip to be set on the wireless network interface. I have an old laptop with an internal Intel pro 2200 card so there should not be a driver problem.
This i my interfaces config code...
To be on the sure side to get this to work I have configured my router(DHCP) to give my wireless-HWaddress the ip of 10.0.1.15, STILL the ubuntu desktop starts with the false address above.
So I want to run a Minecraft Server on my computer running Ubuntu 11.04. My goal is to have the server running over my network through one of the virtual terminals without any type of GUI running (to conserve resources). I'm shutting down the ubuntu GUI using the command:
Code: sudo service gdm stop which does a great job, but it also kills my wireless connection.I've tried editing my /etc/network/interfaces, and even uninstalling the gnome network mananger, but nothing seems to work. Can anybody help?
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Laptop. It has a Netgear WG511 (made in China) PCI wireless card but I cannot see any connections other than the wired one. Entering in lspci in the terminal mode and removing/replacing the WG511 shows (I think) that something is being detected in the PCI slot "Network Controller: Intersil Corporation ISL 3890 [Prism GT/Prism Duette]/ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] rev 01". Is this the WG511 and, if so, how do I get it to be detected as a network device?
I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop. When I look at the Device Manager in Windows 7, it says I have an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. Right now, I am unable to connect to wifi with Linux. What drivers am I able to install, and how would I install them?
