Ubuntu :: Wireless Card Edimax EW-7711UMn Not Working?


I bought a wireless card as stated because it said Linux compatible on it.

I found out on another blog that I needed to blacklist the following:

blacklist rt2x00usb
blacklist rt2x00lib
blacklist rt2800usb

Since then the wireless on my Ubuntu finds a couple of networks, amongst them my wireless network that I am trying to connect. When I enter the Password (which I enter correctly btw) then it tries to connect, but then stops after about 30 seconds.

Ubuntu Networking :: Edimax 7727in Wireless PCI Card In 10.10
I have Maverick Meerkat running perfectly on my laptop and have loaded as dual boot onto my old XP pc as well, I'm quite a newbie and working my way through Ubuntu for Non Geeks.

Problem - apparently this PCI card - Edimax wireless N PCI 7727in card is supposed to work out of the box, it came with the Ralink drivers for Ubuntu RT2860.

the network manager finds the homehub and tries to connect but just continually tries and never actually does it, the card works fine with XP so i know it's not faulty.

if it was a driver fault would the card be working at all? would it try to find the network manager?

I bought this card as previously i was using a Dlink DWA-140 and gave up trying to make it work, this card is advertised as Linux compatible in the Ubuntu forums list and on the card.

Ubuntu Networking :: Edimax WiFi Card Not Working With Karmic
Finally took the plunge and upgraded my ubuntu studio to karmic from jaunty. I seem to be experiencing a problem many have, being that my wifi card (edimax) which worked on my previous distro is now not working at all. I've done a lot of research and found the problem seems to mainly be with broadcom cards, and have tried a number of things relating to those that have worked for others, with no luck.

My problem seems to be not that the drivers wont activate or anything like that, my problem is that under hardware drivers nothing appears at all. I have no drivers present, where most people are talking of 3. i have not found anyone else with this problem. My problem is compounded in addition by not being about to use a wire connection at all.

Ubuntu Networking :: Edimax EW-7128g Wireless PCI Not Working With Ralink RT2561/RT61 Chipset
Just installed Ubuntu Studio 10.04 and everything seems to be working nicely except I have no networking.

The card does not appear in the Network Settings GUI. The only 3 tabs I have are General, DNS, and Hosts.

A screen grab is attached.

I'm a long time Windows user trying out some of the best Linux creative apps I can find. So, Ubuntu Studio was a no brainer. I checked the manufacturer's site for linux drivers and they are available, but I don't know how current. (Edimax site, not RaLink's site.) I opened the file and it looks like it needs to be compiled and installed to work. Something I know almost nothing about. The card is listed as supported in this forum for Ubuntu 9x but I can't find information about it for 10.04

PS. I have no networking on the system but I can transfer files via USB flash drives if needed.

Some System info:

Code:

1 ) Machine Brand and Model (PC/Laptop): Dell Precision 650

2 ) Wireless Brand, Model and Wireless Chipset: 03:0c.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI

3 ) check interface: robert@ubuntu:~$ ifconfig
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1

Debian :: BCMxx - Wireless Isn't Working - NetworkManager Doesn't Even Detect A Wireless Card
I just got myself a Dell Inspiron 1440. And decided to install my favorite distro Debian. I got the installation to go with no issue and all seems to be working fine. However the wireless isn't working. NetworkManager doesnt even detect a wireless card. I followed the instructions here and installed the b43-fwcutter and then issued the modprobe b43 and modprobe b43legacy commands. Then I issued the iwconfig command and this was the output.

[Code].....

Also, I've been doing some research and found out about some file located /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. So I looked in mine and found out that only my eth0 is added.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel 2915ABG Wireless Card Not Working On 11?
I'm just installed opensuse 11 on my laptop and it doesn't detect my wireless card (it works fine out of the box in fedora). When I go to Yast network settings I get this message:

Code:

PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection (Not connected)
BusID : 0000:05:04.0

Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details.

Code:

/sbin/lspci
05:04.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network
Connection (rev 05)

[code]....

Unfortunately I don't have access to a wired network so installing anything from yast might be difficult for me. I'm fairly new to Linux so some of the output from these commands are meaningless to me...

Fedora Networking :: F15 - Configuring Wifi Card - Edimax EW-7612PIn With RTL8192SE Chipset
I have just installed an Edimax EW-7612PIn PCI-E Wifi card which has an RTL8192SE chipset. This chipset is not supported under current F15 kernels so I have installed the driver and firmware from source and have that working fine. The driver can see the card and I can issue 'iwconfig' commands successfully enough to see my Wifi network.

The problem I have is that I don't understand the relationship between iwconfig and wpa_supplicatant and as I'm running a headless F15 server I cannot use the NetworkManager GUI to help me. I should also note that the Wifi network is using WPA2-Personal encryption.

This is what I have done:

Configured /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 with what I think are reasonable values (based on google searches), including the ESSID, TYPE as Wireless, etc.

Configured /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, including using the key value returned from wpa_passphrase.

Arranged for wpa_supplicant to run from boot, using chkconfig.

However when I run 'ifconfig wlan0 up' I get the error message 'link is not ready' and indeed looking at the output from 'iwconfig wlan0' there are no configured values. I also understand that some values are configured by iwconfig and others by wpa_supplicant, however it's not clear what.

How do I permanently set iwconfig values?

How do I configure wpa_supplicant?

Hardware :: Wireless N USB Dongle Edimax Drivers For Ubuntu
I bought this Wireless N USB dongle Edimaxx EW-7811Un today and it works fine in Windows. But when I plug it into my Ubuntu Netbook, nothing happens? I'm guessing this is a driver issue and there is a driver available on their website but I have no idea what to do with it as I have never manually installed a Linux driver before. I tried looking up some tutorials but all the methods seem completely different between specific hardware. The driver is available here : [URL]

OpenSUSE Wireless :: No Automatic Connection With Little Edimax?
I have just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3 my Dell Inspiron 5100 with LAN adapter Edimax Ew-7711utn. It was working fine under 11.2, without using Network Manager. The old RT2870 driver was loaded and wpa_supplicant started at boot time. But it does not connect any more automatically with 11.3. The nl80211 almost universal driver seems to be missing, wpa_supplicant is not launched during the boot process, and no connection to the AP is therefore made. I have tried quickly NetworkManager but it is of no help in this case. There is still a long way to go to make it a reliable clever tool. So, back to the ifup method, I can only connect manually with this small script :

#!/bin/sh
echo "Starting mywifi "
/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dwext -B
sleep 2
/sbin/dhclient wlan0
echo ""
route add -net default gw 192.168.0.1
sleep 3
iwconfig
exit 0

It works, but I am not happy at all to have to run this bad script, and would like to understand the origin of this regression, and why is nl80211 not found.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: PCI Edimax EW-7711lN Setup?
I am (was) trying to setup my Edimax EW-7711lN PCI WiFi card. My original post is here, misplaced because my initial issue was the absence of development tools & libs.That was solved but following the tutorial on this site. I know it says Ubuntu, but the method worked for me also on Mandriva and Fedora so I was thinking it would help in openSuse as well.

However, in openSuse I have no networking devices when I look in the list (not even a loopback interface or my onboard Realtek LAN). Could someone maybe help me in doing a proper installation (maybe help me with a change to that tutorial to make it work on openSuse?).

Ubuntu :: Edimax 7781Un Wireless USB Modem Driver Compilation
I recently bought the Edimax 7781Un wireless modem specifically because it works with Linux. The OS does recognise the device and tries to connect to the router, however it connects and has the two semi-circles going round then it eventually disconnects. I thought it was my wireless device with little signal strength therefore I bought this one. However this one connected once for 20 seconds, 89% strength and disconnects. I booted up win7 and it works fine, so I have put it down to the driver or the OS.

Trying to compile the driver, I am up to the make step after following instruction here. I type make, it does a few things and errors a fair few things, the last line ending in [make] *** [LINUX] Error 2

Another possibility (I think) for this connection problem could be my AMP installation, however I have neither apache, php or mysql running and I still have the problem.I read somewhere that make requires more files, is this true? And if it is, where can I get it without an internet connection on my linuxbox? (I am currently using my brothers w7 computer).

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Edimax WiFi Cards Is Supported?
which chipsets are on the PCi and PCie cards, EW7722in and EW-7612PIn, and whether they can be made to run on a linux system. My system is recent (Linux home 2.6.37.2-0.6-default kernel) Do they have the same chipset as EW-7711In, which I notice has explicit linux support? Now this was on the 3/03/2011, and I had given up getting any kind of useful support, but I got a reply today. I hope they wont mind if I quote them:

Fedora Networking :: Edimax RT73 USB Recognized But Not Working?
I have just installed Fedora 10 on a Dell Inspiron 530. I was delighted to see on the very first boot into the system that my Edimax RT73 USB stick was recognised by the system as it was offering a selection of wireless networks to connect to. But oddly, my own network wasn't listed there. I created a new network and entered the network id manually. Once it was in the list, I checked the radio button and saw a message that I am connected to my network. But after a few seconds the network icon disappeared.

I rebooted the system and again went through the same process with the icon disappearing.

I have an Edimax wireless access point with DHCP enabled. The security is WPA2 Personal with AES.

Vista is also dual booting on the same machine and working fine.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Edimax EW7717Un- Doesn't Want To Work In 11.3 Part1?
I was hoping that 11.3 would sort this ongoing problem out for me. It works, it doesn't work so on and so forth! Following the "My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next page" the first few cmnd line entries were irrelevant. However, here are the results (edited) of the dmesg file.

1.376898] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=7392, idProduct=7717

When I click on the network icon in the panel, Wireless Connections is enabled, but Ubuntu shows no available wireless networks? I can switch to my other laptop and it works fine.
