I thought I'd give Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal??) a try on an old Dell Latitude D600 I had lying around. Install went great. Everything seems to run nice and slick.. except one thing.. the wireless is giving me the old "Device not ready (firmware missing)" So I can only use my lappy on a leash.
It's a pretty common Broadcom NIC... and I've tried running the System / Administration / Additional Drivers and nothing comes up.
It seems to me I need a driver someplace...I don't know where or how to get it installed.
i have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my computer, which is HP 4710s ProBook.I've installed it with wubi and everything seem to be working just fine, except for my wireless.It is showing me: device not ready(firmware missing).
Recently, I wiped my existing install of Ubuntu 10.10 and reinstalled it over. That went smoothly, except for one little snag. Now when I try to connect to the Internet, up on the top when I click the little network icon, under Wireless Networks, instead of showing the networks I can connect to, it says:
"Device Not Ready (Firmware Missing)" So I move the little wireless switch on my laptop, and then it says:
"Wireless Disabled" What did I do, and how do I fix it?
I've tried to install Linux systems have been failures. Trying to make this work, trying to get on the right wagon, and it's frustrating as all get-out.
Installed netbook remix onto a HP Mini 1000 (1116NR?) and everything seems to be working alright, except no wireless networking. I tried a couple of things and now it shows "device not ready" instead of "disabled", so I figure I'm getting somewhere.
The device is:
Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
I want in. This is my 3rd try over the years of running Linux and I always hit snags like this that I can't fix because I've never gotten to play with it enough to learn what I'm doing and generally don't have a 2nd computer like I do right now.
I just recently installed ubuntu, my first experience with linux. I don't know if it isn't recognizing my wireless card or if it is another issue, but I am unable to view any wireless networks/connect to any. When I click on the network icon it says "wireless" with Device Not Ready underneath.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and I can't seem to get the wireless connection to function. Ubuntu either says that the card is turned off or if I toggle the wireless switch on my keyboard it then says 'device not ready.' I'm using a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card, and it works fine when I boot in Windows 7.
This morning I installed Fedora 14 on my laptop. During the setup, I was able to configure the wireless connection and use it to install additional software from the FreshRPMs and Livna repos. When the install was completed, I was surprised to find the wireless not working. When I click on the NetworkManager icon at the bottom right corner, I see "Wireless Networks" Under that it says "device not ready" and it is greyed out so it cannot be click on.
Running lspci -vnn returned 07:00.0 Ethernet controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01) Kernel driver in use: ath5k Kernel modules: ath5k Running lsmod confirmed that ath5k is in fact loaded.
I have a HP Elitebook 6930 with Intel 5300 wireless card and today I update it from Fedora11 to Fedora 12 and now I cannot connect with my home wireless network. Previously with F11 I connected without problems but now the wireless connection presents a "Device not ready" message. I tried to switch on/off the wireless card but without results. I had to set intel_iommu=off as kernel parameter to complete the boot. Is something related to it?
When I click on the wireless I get a message saying that I am missing firmware. I've tried connecting via ethernet, however this doesn't work either, would it be a problem if I just found a download for firmware, downloaded on another comp and copy it to my linux computer?
I am using a hp pavilion zd7000, computer says firmware is missing for wireless controller. i also have a wirless g notebook card made by belkin which will scan for networks but wont connect to them for some unknown reason. if i can get either the wireless g card to work or the built in wireless to work thata be great. I am well experienced in windows but very new to linux and how everything works.
I'm running Linux 11.04 and my wireless network was working just fine until today. I cannot connect to WiFi - it acts as if the device wasn't there. The hardware switch led isn't working. No matter how much clicking on it, it won't work.

after installing Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04, I'm experiencing tons and tons of complications with the wireless Internet connection. I have solved most of them. Now I have only one thing left. When I hit the drop-down menu for wireless connections, it says "Wireless connection (Firmware missing)"
I have installed the driver for my wireless card but what is the firmware? I honestly don't know what it is although it's very basic. I have a Broadcom 43xx as my wireless card (specifically 4306). How do I get the firmware for it? Do I find it in Windows? Also I cannot get b43-fwcutter because I have absolutely to Internet connection on Ubuntu. To post this, I'm using Windows.
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 (cause 10.04 is crazy glitchy on this system) and I've hit a snag.My wireless won't work! I used it before in 10.04, but it won't work in 9.10.I've made sure that the wireless switch on my keyboard is on. When I click on my network icon, it says that the device is not ready. I'm fully updated and just need this last thing
Everytime I to turn on my wireless device, and try to connect to a wireless network, i see the phrase " device not ready" greyed out, and not able to access a wireless network. i do not know what to do
is there any way to download the 'package indexes' on a seperate computer operating on windows vista, before transferring them, via usb, to my laptop working on linux 10.10. As the reason i need them is to get the wireless to work so the internet can work.
I am running UNR on an Asus T91MT and everything was working great until an update yesterday, my OS froze while updating and I had to do a hard reboot. Since, I have not been able to get wireless, and lshw does not even recognize the presence of a wireless device on the system.
I am new to Fedora 15. I just installed it on my laptop.I have a HP pavillion dv4-1314us with intel core 2 duo.When I try to turn on my wireless, it tells me "firmware missing".lspci -vnn | grep 14e402:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:432b] (rev 01)I tried using this http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 . I executed the Fedora Part, rebooted and it still doesn't work.
DELL Inspiron 15 3543 (3000 Series)5th Generation Intel Core i5-5200U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.70 GHz).I have installed Debian 8 and received following message relating missing firmware files rtl_nic/rtl8106e-1.fw (EDIT: I understand this is not wireless adapter, but wired adapter which appears to be working ok as I can connect to internet ok.)The wireless adapter wasn't recognised so I used LAN cable and completed the install.this is details of wireless adapter....
When I try to connect to the internet wirelessly with Fedora 14 it tells that the wirless firmware is missing. Is there anywayI can fix this or find the firmware for a Dell Wireless 1379 Wlan mini-chip? The Chipset is BCM4315Also my computer is a Dell Inspiron 1545
I've recently burned Fedora 15 into a CD, in order to install from there onto my computer. However, when boot into Fedora, my wireless doesn't work, instead, it says that firmware is missing.I have had exactly the same problem installing other Linux distros, such as Ubuntu. When I consulted the support at Ubuntu, they were unable to solve the problem. The 'missing firmware' problem is exactly the same in other Linux distros, so I'm pretty much guessing that it's the same problem and is due to my wireless card incompatibility or something.
I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 and burnt it to a CD so I could try Ubuntu before installing it via Live CD. It automatically displayed the window where you download drivers for your hardware, I activated the Broadcom drivers, and WiFi worked fine. So then I installed it inside of Windows (as a dual-boot). Now, when I open the hardware managing window (I forget what it's called), there are no drivers listed to be activated. Since I am unable to activate the Broadcom divers, I can't get internet over wifi. Also, I don't have access to a wired connection, but I do have blank CD's and a USB stick (if that helps). How can I fix this?
