No problems till about a week ago.A week ago I upgraded to Lucid and could not get the DVD drive to mount no matter what. The OS saw it but would not mount it...... uninstall and re -install Karmic.As soon as the patches are installed from the update manager, I lose my wireless completely. Wired connection still works.
I have tried different things from here and other sites. Basically I need to know how to enable my wireless card. There is no switch and key combinations (ALT+ F2) don't do anything. Connectivity in Win 7 is fine.
The Applet says wireless is disabled and so does the output from $sudo lshw -C network.It sees the interface but the network is disabled. lsmod shows the driver. iw list scan says does not support scanning. Newtwork is down.I know there is something in the updates that is messing the Intel WiFi Link 5100 up. On a fresh install all works till updated.
Everything else works fine on Ubuntu 9.10 except when I try to connect to the internet. I have wireless. It just keeps connecting nonstop and never connects. I don't know what to do. Please help me. What should I do? I'm using Acer Aspire 5534 with Windows 7.
I am running Ubuntu 10.4 AMD64 on a HP Pavilion dv4Z-1200 laptop which I had manually assigned a temporary static IP through the DHCP server to the wireless connection, say 92. The server assigns the IP based on MAC.I later reassigned my standard IP to it, 80, but whenever I connect to the network with the Ubuntu wireless connection set to Automatic, it is still picking up 92 (which is outside the range of the DHCP assigning authority, which is 100-120).
I can force 80 manually, but I would rather the DHCP server issue the correct address, rather than tell it which one I want (kind of the whole purpose behind assigning static IPs, no?)I don't know... there is something wrong with this OS installation, because my internet connection is painfully intermittent, to the point of unusability, where other computers on the network are working fine. If I boot the same machine with 9.10 64AMD, the wireless assigned IP is correct and the internet seems to be working fine.
I am using a Linksys WMP11 V27 pci card that supposed to be talking to a Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless router (802.11B) ...I am able to connect directly to internet (ethernet cable hooked to this wireless router) ... but for indepedence I need to go wireless.I defined the configuration using the Network Connections ... also through ndisgtk .. can't seem to get this two to consolidate.On /var/log syslog I see ....

I ve just install ubuntu 10.10 and am unable to connect to wireless connect. I was able to connect on the try ubuntu before install option. I have dual booted Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10. I have tried connecting without the WEP key and still no luck. Just found it strange that connect on try it but not after full install.
I just installed suse 11.3 and everything seems to work perfectly out of the box, except for the network card. I am currently using the ath9k driver.
The problem is that if I connect to a WPA protected network, the connection will drop about every 20 seconds and ask for the network key again. Eventually, after about 15 minutes, it completely stops working and I have to reboot in order to be able to use it again. Unloading and reloading the ath9k module has no effect, a full reboot is needed. I have not yet tried to use ath5k or madwifi instead, but on ubuntu, the ath5k and madwifi drivers do not associate with my card.
below is one "cycle" in the nm log, from connected to the next connected:

recently I had installed fedora 10 in my acer aspire 4730Z laptop. I successfully configured wireless connection. But I am unable to get constant internet connection. I thought there must be some problem with my OS and I formatted fedora and installed Ubuntu 9 I faced the same problem there Again I installed back fedora , problem not solved Then I thought there must be some problem with my internet connection and I went to my friends house and tried linksys (I have netgear) same problem..I never had this problem when i had windows vistaThis is what my problem is "I AM ABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET FOR FEW MINS THEN CONNECTION FAILED " then i had to wait for few min then everything is fine!!!, then again same thing
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.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP Pavilion dv5. My laptop has a Broadcom 4312 wireless adapter. The driver for the adapter was installed by Ubuntu as a proprietary driver. The wireless light is on and I can see the available networks, but I am unable to connect to my network. The correct authorization is set(WPA/WPA2) and I have entered the passphrase correctly.
I am able to connect to the wireless network successfully from my Windows login(that is how I confirmed that the passphrase is accurate). The network shows that it is trying to connect, but the wireless authentication dialog(asking for the passphrase) keeps popping up. Incidentally, the same thing happened when I tried openSuSe and Fedora on a spare laptop. The windows systems can connect, but not the Linux systems.
I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an old Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop using the whole disk.I had Windows XP before. I got an ADSL internet connection without any problems, but not a wireless connection. I am using a DWL-G650 cardbus adapter.
I've just installed 11.04 Natty on an old Laptop (Dell Lattitude C400) and am unable to connect to my home network (wired LAN connection, no wireless). The laptop previously had WinXP installed and was able to connect (I have also double checked the cables and ports and they're all functioning ok).
I am running FC13 on a Compaq Presario 2100 using a Broadcom BCM4306. I was able to get it running thanks to Fedora Unity Project. But It's a very unstable connection. I don't know what settings to adjust or enable or disable. It's not my router, this is the only wireless connection in the house that I have trouble with.
I installed Wicd from the Slackware DVD and was successfully connecting to the internet for the past few weeks.I do not know if the following caused my problem or if it is something else that I did:All of a sudden (probably something that I did) the wpa_gui screen started to appear on my desktop. I just closed it.Today, in a moment of stupidity, I said "Who needs this wpa-gui thingy?! I know, I'll just use pkgtool to uninstall it. Then, if I need it, I'll just use pkgtool to reinstall it!" So, I did. After my next reboot, you guessed it, no wireless.
Wicd seems to do everything it used to do, except connect. I get the error msg "Connection Failed: Unable to get IP address." I see my 'connection' listed and it is still set to "Automatically connect to this network" but it doesn't.So, is it the wpa-gui app that I 'uninstalled' or is it something else that I might have done?
I think I've read every post here about the Broadcom and connection.I thought I tried everything.Turns out (read Chapter�35.�Using NetworkManager) using Connection Manager (K Network Manager) you can not use, what I wanted to use, 'all users, use connection' or said another way, the wifi would be activated and connected Before the user 'logs in'. Well, as I said, it turns out that if you are using gnome, this will work with NetMgr, but NOT in KDE. If you want to use 'system connect' then you have to use 'traditional' if in YaST2. Oh well, at least 'i'm' connected.... (i'm the only user, so not a big deal right now, but would like to get it working...)
I have got a laptop running Debian squeeze. I wish to share the wireless connection of the laptop (wlan0) to the ethernet port of the laptop, so that I can share the wireless connection to my desktop PC which is connected to the ethernet port.
I have read the article on Ubuntu community: [url]
I followed the steps, and the /etc/network/interfaces file on my laptop is:
Now the situation is: My laptop can connect to Internet (i.e. ping debian.org from laptop is fine), my desktop PC can connect to my laptop (i.e. ping 192.168.1.1 from desktop PC is fine). However, the desktop PC cannot reach the Internet.
I also read the information on Debian Wiki: [url]
It seems I must install and configure ebtables before sharing my wireless connection to ethernet port. Is it true? (But why the article on Ubuntu community doesn't mention it?) Or I just made some mistakes?
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
Today installed Ubuntu 10.04. The problem is that I cannot connect to the internet, which was no problem with the previous version (9.10). I use WiFi for my internet connection. My network is shown in Ubuntu. However Ubuntu cannot connect to my network. After some time trying it says : wireless network disconnected
I have recently installed Ubuntu V9.04 onto my the old (fatter) PS3 and I am trying to connect to my wireless home connection. But upon click the connection icon on the task bar, Wired network and wireless networks are grayed out from the options and the network connections box does not detect anything, not even my neighbors Wifi!
I am trying to keep a VPN connection open between two Ubuntu 8.04 LTS servers, one in Holland and one in China. Unfortunately, because the connection in China is not great, about 1 time a day the connection drops. I have therefore devised a script, to be started by crontab once every 5 minutes, that checks the connection and if necessary restores it.
We have two internet connections here, one through Allegro which goes through an ISA 2004 box and an ADSL2+ connection.Everything works fine when connected via the ISA box. Windows machines (and last I checked, a Macbook) work fine on the ADSL2 setup, but nothing Ubuntuesque will work properly through it.DHCP is fine (and the same thing happens with a static IP), it gives a proper address, DNS works fine, it's just whenever a page attempts to load, Firefox will sit at the "Waiting for <site>..." status until it gives up. apt does the same thing.What I've tested it on so far is:
- a homemade 9.10 box - an IBM xSeries 346 running 10.04 - an Acer Veriton M460 running 10.04 - an Acer Travelmate 6293 running 10.04
None of them will work with it. The Travelmate and the IBM are dual-boot, both will work fine on the connection under Windows. The Veriton is Windows only (tested using a Live CD) and is much the same.The router is a Thompson TG782T (Telsta branded). I'm at a loss with this. Any ideas? I can provide more info if needed.
recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. Everything seems to be working fine on the installation except I have never been able to connect to the internet (I'm on mac connected to the same linksys router at the moment). I've been working on this for several days and have exhausted all the possible causes. Here is my setup.
-I have tried running both 10.10 and 10.04 (I have 10.04 installed at the moment)
-I have windows xp on a separate hard drive on the same computer and the internet works fine when I boot in windows
-I have tried both automatic DHCP (which my windows uses) and manually connecting to my network under the IPv4 settings
-my "Connection Information" info under networks manager has all the correct information listed as far as my driver, IP address, Bcast, mask, DNS serves are concerned (except I don't know what 'default route' is for so I can't verify that that is correct.)
-my ethernet connection is wired connection that is connected to a linksys router
-my ethernet driver is sis190
-I can ping my router successfully, but I cannot ping anything (i.e. websites) on the other side of my router
