Ubuntu :: Wireless Cards With Rtl8180l Chips Not Working On Maverick?
Oct 11, 2010
This is a fact I have to share with you. I've tried it on liveCD version, and also have tried to fix the problem, but nothing worked. I even installed ndiswrapper, but the Windows drivers didn't solve the problem:
- the system sees the card (lspci)
- the card doesn't see any wireless network (iwlist)
- no command line manipulation helps (iwconfig, ifconfig)
I'm new to Ubuntu - I've decided to give Ubuntu Studio a go as an alternative to Windows. However, after installing it, neither of my network cards work. I have a Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG wireless card, and a Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Wired card. Neither work, And I'm not sure how to. I've tried searching, and have come up with the .tgz file here, but I have no idea what to do with it I'm concentrating on the wireless card for the moment, seeing as that will be the main one I use.
I've upgraded to Maverick but now I cannot get my wireless card working. In Lucid it didn't work out of the box, but worked perfectly by wrapping the Windows driver with ndiswrapper.
I noticed when I installed Maverick that wireless is enabled in Network-Manager and it gives me the option to create a wireless network or connect to a hidden network but it's not discovering/showing any of the wireless networks in range! So it seems as though the card is being recognized but the driver isn't working fully...? I tried wrapping the windows drivers, but that didn't change the situation at all.
I'm using Maverick and since yesterday, my wireless hasn't been working. It was working before with Maverick and I don't recall doing any updates that might have changed wireless configurations.
By "doesn't work" I mean it doesn't recognizes any networks, as if the wireless was turned off (there's this button on laptops, but it's turned on). I had that problem some time ago, but rebooting solved the problem, which, now, didn't.
I recently read over here: Getting Your Wireless to Work : "For example, open-source firmware for the Broadcom BCM4306/3 BCM4318, and BCM4311/1 was just released. Future openSUSE versions will be able to include this firmware and those devices will work immediately..." I am looking for PCI cards for desktops. Besides the list of supported chipsets at [URL], is there a brand name list with firmware support by OSS 11.3? At the moment, I have a Netgear WG311v3 which believe has been causing system instabilities in both linux and windoze: 01:06.0 Ethernet Controller : Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11 b/g Wireless [11ab:1faa] (rev 03)
I'm running 10.04 64 bit, and the Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN does not work with n routers. I'd like to either upgrade the card, or buy a usb adapter, but I can't figure out which cards will work. I've searched[URL].. which lists supported wifi cards, but most of the info on that page is not relevant to lucid, and hasn't been updated at all this year. I saw elsewhere that any card with the atheros chipset will work, but what cards have this? Will all of them with this chipset work?
i had just went out and got some older blade servers and put ubuntu server on it and when i was installing it it asked if i wanted to set an ip because it didnt get a dhcp responce i said no then because i was going to do it later when i do a ifconfig now all i get is a lo interface but if i do sudo lspci i get 2 ethernet controllers and they show as follows 2:03.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom corporation NetXtreme BCM5702X Gigabit Ethernet (rev 02) 2:04.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme Bcm57j02x Gigabit Ethernet (rev 02)
i have been trying to figure out how to get my CAC working on my laptop so i can log into service portal sites and do things while i am TDY that require CAC logins. I have followed this tutorial [URL], and i got as far as getting the module installed into firefox, but it wouldnt aknowledge my card being inserted and wouldnt prompt me to select a certificate or anything. Then i tried OpenSC, but for one it wouldnt acknowldege my card being inserted and the module wouldnt load in firefox.
I mainly want to use this for logging into AirForce Portal, DTS, and Webmail while im TDY so i dont have to find a GOV computer to do that stuff on. I would ultimately like to get it setup to where i can use my CAC to login to my laptop just like a Government computer, but if i cant do that right now i wont cry over it. Im using a SCM SCR3340, i havent seen it on any supported hardware list yet, but so far coolkey and opensc have both detected my reader, just opensc didnt detect my card being inserted.
Had a hard drive fail this week, and I am going to order a new one. I am using $150 dollars in Best Buy gift certificates. Well seeing as how I have some left over I would like to get a usb wireless adapter that would work out of the box (preferably usb although I could always get an internal). All Best Buy has are wireless N cards and I was wondering if anyone knows if any Wireless N USB cards work out of the box without downloading firmware or NDISwrapper.
I recently purchased two MSI Windtop AE2220's. One for my home which uses a router with WPA2 protection and one for my office where I use WEP encryption.
The Realtek internal wireless card will not connect to a WEP router if you are running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I have exhausted all suggestions on this site and all drivers found at Realtek's site.
I have been using Ubuntu since Hardy Heron, but sadly, painfully, I have had to install Windows 7 on my office machine until I find a wireless card compatible with the MSI Windtop AE2220, Lucid and WEP.
I'm trying to get ubuntu working w/ 3 monitors. I have been given 2 video cards
lspci | grep VGA 20:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV620 LE [Radeon HD 3450] 25:05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV44A [GeForce 6200] (rev a1)
I have had it working w/ two monitors plugged into the ATI correctly. and the nVidia monitor blank. Now I have the nVidia monitor working and one monitor from the ATI working, but I can't seem to get the last monitor to show anything. It does show the boot screen and works up until the point you are presented w/ the login screen for ubuntu, then it disappears and the nVidia monitor turns on. Might I have something wrong w/ my xorg.conf or do I need to do something more to get this to work? Currently I'm seeing this error in my Xorg.0.log file, but I'm not sure where to go from here:
[ 24.746] (EE) RADEON(2): reusing fd for second head /etc/X11/xorg.conf # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 270.29 (firstname.lastname@example.org
So my wireless card no longer works in my windows machine for some odd reason, probably due to the temporary video card I have until my actual one comes back from XFX. It works perfectly in the Ubuntu box though, so I bought a crossover cable hoping to have it automatically create a wired network that I can bridge to my router. Obviously it's not that simple.
Anyway, I have the computers connected through crossover cable and they sort of know there's supposed to be some form of networking going on (Windows has limited connectivity on "unkown network" while Ubuntu just won't connect to Auto eth0), but that's as far as I get. basically all I need is to:
1. Get the computers to connect to and communicate with each other. 2. Bridge the wired connection with the wireless one within Ubuntu so that the Windows computer can access the Internet as well as the shared files on the other computers in the wireless network.
I'm running 10.04 Lucid with Gnome desktop, if it makes a difference.
It seems like the wireless card is just about the only piece of hardware without much support in Linux. Is there any particular reason that they've been so overlooked? Like is it harder to write a driver for them or something?
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).
Update 29/04/2011 The new broadcom driver is included in the 2.6.38 kernel that comes with Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal I suggest everyone to just upgrade to the new version. Update 07/01/11 user some-one the problem with git sources has been solved. At the moment the only commit version that compiles in 10.10 is this one:[URL].. Download the .tar.gz file in your home directory and extract it.
In a nutshell, it outlines a rather daft snag when running Ubuntu (10.04 and on) with regards to strange and quite frankly ludicrous wireless behavior concerning RaLink cards in Asus netbooks. The M.O. of a netbook is portable netz, yet it seems ENTIRELY impossible with this hardware setup Any geniuses care to have a stab? All outputs are included in the original post.
My laptop has these Broadcom chipsets (from lspci): Code: 00:09.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02) 02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 01)
The 4321 is working fine with wl, but I can't figure out how to get the 4306 working. As I understand, I can't use wl for that one. I once had it working (in FC10 or so) with b43legacy, which is now blacklisted for wl. Unblacklisting it alone doesn't make the other card work. Is there some other configuration I need to do?
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 22.214.171.124-0.6-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:
I've heard that Compiz is not working in Maverick. Is this true? Has it impacted computers with decent graphics cards much, or is it no big deal? I'm kinda confused, because of the Ubiquity thing. Is that replacing compiz?
I'm having problems getting two wlan cards to work under Networkmanager with F12. I have an old server that I wanted to move, so thought I'd get a USB wlan device for it. before setting up the server, I thought I'd try the USB (an Edimax EW-7711USn - Ralink 2870) on my laptop first. My laptop has an inbuilt ipw2200 card that works fine under NM.
So I've down loaded the DPO_RT3370_LinuxSTA_V126.96.36.199_20100831.tgz file from Ralink, and built the driver (after changing the os/linux/config.mk file for the WPA supplicant settings). I also install the rt2870 firmware (from Ralink) in the /lib/firmware directory. I also blacklisted the rt2800usb driver to ensure that that didn't get loaded.
The problem I have is that I can now get both the ipw2200 device and the rt2870 devices 'working', but they both try to assume the same IP (I want fixed IP's and not DHCP for them) - what is the way to configure the 'devices' so that the rt2870 device is always given IP x and the ipw2200 given IP y?
I think my problem is really my lack of understanding where/how NM handles the files under the GUI config. I used to semi understand how the old network config tool set up it's files and where they were etc. But with NM I'm a bit lost as to how it equates the device with the network settings. Once I have the device working with the correct driver on my laptop, I'll look to apply the same settings on the server (which is then FC13 - but should be simpler as it doesn't have an existing wlan interface).
I have a Gateway DX4850 I7 cpu computer. It has a Ralink 3090 wireless card. 64 bit system. What, in your assessment, is the best distro to work with such a card? I CAN hack stuff. I would prefer not to. I've heard that fedora 15 is to be avoided, but have no experience with it.
