I installed lucid lynx on my hp pavilion dm4 laptop, very happy with it. My wireless is not working though (I have ethernet working), I have looked for drivers for the Broadcom card that's supposed to pick it up, the light is orange. I have seen that many people have this problem, tried their solutions to no avail. I have ndiswrapper installed and have found some drivers that detect the hardware, still not getting wireless.
This is my output lshw -C network output:

I have just installed Maverick meekat on my new laptop with Wubi, and I have been trying to setup my wireless connection, but i couldnt. The first thing I tried was going to System>Prefrences>network connections, and clicking on the wireless tab. I tried to add a network think manyally, and I miserably failed.
here is the information I have of my laptop as of now after doing the lspci command in the terminal:
Also I have read somethings about ndis or using the windows driver and things of that sort. Whenever I am using windows, my wireless connection is working perfectly. So I dont know if there is a specific way to activate my drivers, or if my computer is just not capable of having wireless connection on Ubuntu.
When I press the red LED touch button below the screen to turn it on, nothing happens. Also the LED that indicates that the wireless is on stays red and does not turn blue. I have dual boot on and tested it under Windows 7 where everything works fine, so I know the internal wireless card and touch key is working. Just not in OpenSuse. I am using the KDE plasma desktop.
My wireless LAN connection on this machine occasionally stops working. The network traffic bar shows periodic very small transmissions but the failure of all network dependent applications (Firefox, package manager, etc.) indicates to me that the machine is no longer talking to the net. I can fix it by reselecting my home network in nm-applet from the drop-down list. This causes the machine to disconect, reconnect and all is well for some random period of time thereafter. Here's some data:I'm running an HP Pavillion laptop.

I don't know if this is related or not, but a couple of months ago I unsuccessfully attempted to share a hotel's wired Internet connection over my wireless card. I may have hosed some settings or it could be unrelated.The "unknown interface" portion of the restart attempt is interesting but I don't know enough to fix it.
For some reason, ubuntu cannot find local wireless networks. In fact, the Broadcom wireless card Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n seems to be incompatible with ubuntu. I've tried numerous 'solutions' on the Internet, but none of them seem to work on my computer. Tutorials I've visited have recommended downloading the b43 drivers from the Synaptic package manager and also the bcmwl-kernal-source package. Nevertheless, the wireless never turns on and Additional Drivers never shows anything at all. After several exasperating hours of trying to get my wireless running I've decided to turn to the forum for help. I'm sure there's probably more information I should supply, but I'm honestly not sure what that would be.
I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.
I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.
Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.
As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience. ---- EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working. ----- EDIT 2: found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.
I just installed Ubunto 9.10 on my HP Pavilion ZE9400 laptop (more specifically a ze4930us) that was formerly running Windoze XP. Right now, I'm using my Win 7 desktop machine. The problem with the laptop is that Linux can't connect to my wireless network. It seems that it can't see the wireless card. When I tap the button on the laptop case, a little blue light normally switches on and off to indicate whether the wireless card is enabled or not, but that light doesn't come on. I suppose I need a HP/Ubuntu driver. Any advice, links, etc?
BTW, I also went to the HP site to download a driver, but Linux isn't one of the OSs that they support and have no drivers.
I just installed ubuntu 9.10 on my HP Pavilion (dv7-3017). Problem is that I have no wireless connection.When pressing wireless button the light stays orange instead of turning blue. My paviion is using Atheros network card. I'm linux newbie so it would great if you could out solving this problem.
i have got an HP Pavilion g6-1142sl and i installed on it ubuntu 11.04. i have some problems with the wireless. i have already read a post on this forum wich explained how to get drivers here the link: [URL] i got them and the wireless started working (a month ago) now, a couple of days ago it stopped working when i did a restart due to an automatic update. and that is what i can see with terminal:
what can i do in order to have a working wireless? i am sorry if my english is not properly good but i am italian.
The microphone of my laptop doesn't work, I'm on a HP Pavilion dv7 and neither the build-in or a microphone plugged in works.
I tried many things (like this: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/78574) to get it work, but none has worked. But I'm quite sure it worked in some earlier ubuntu version. I'm running kubuntu so it's not a problem in pulseaudio. Can anyone please help me with this, because I really hate it I have to restart in windows every time for the mic. code...
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and everything went smooth. I was originally using Ubuntu 10.04 version installed via Wubu and decided it was time to make a true install of Ubuntu and decided to use 10.10.
I installed Skype and tried to have a phone convo, but the Microphone wasn't working. I tried to use yfrog.com to record a video from my webcam and the video worked fine, but no audio. I also tried the pre-installed sound recorder to record my voice but that also failed.
I have an HP dv4 1313dx, pavilion notebook computer. The Built in webcam seems to work OK, but I have absolutely no sound registering when I speak over webchat , or over just sound recordings when I talk at the computer. I'm not sure if it's a software issue or not. I upgraded to 10.4 beta because 9.10 wouldn't let me run my wireless card. So upgrading to the new beta version solved that, but as I said I noticed the built in mic on my notebook isn't picking up any sound. This is whether I'm using Skype, sound recorder, or AMSN for webchats.
I decided to download Ubuntu 9.10. I am just having a problem finding a wireless network. When I click on the icon it does not show any network. It says device not ready under wireless network. Once again I have an HP pavilion dv2500 laptop.
I've just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 w/KDE interface on a HP Pavilion dv5-1010us laptop.Now we're trying to get the wireless to work. It's got a built-in wireless adapter, but we're not sure what kind of adapter it is. HP's Website is no help there. According to another site, it's an Intel WifiLink 5100. I did download the wireless driver from the HP site, but it's a .exe file. Anyone had any luck setting up this or a similar HP laptop. I couldn't find this model on the HCL/Laptops/HP - openSUSE page, but it seems OpenSUSE supports wireless other HP Pavilion models.
I downloaded ubuntu 11.04 on my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop and the wifi on it doesn't work. I'm running it in parallel with windows xp and the wifi works find on windows (as it has always done) but once I boot the laptop in ubuntu, it doesn't recognise anything, no driver, nothing.
get the wifi working in ubuntu on my laptop. Ubuntu is pretty much useless to me if I can't get the wifi to work on it.
yesterday i was on videos, and i had headphones plugged into the headphone socket on my laptop.i unplugged them a few times because they were needed elsewhere, but on the last time i unplugged them, the sound didn't return to the internal speakers. i plugged the headphones back in, and there was sound out of the headphones, but not speakers. i rebooted the laptop, still to find sound only out of the headphones. i then was very bad, and booted into wingdoze, and still sound only out of the headphones. i've tried doing the muting channels in alsa-mixer as well. muting didn't work. i've also tried cleaning the headphone socket with ispopropyl alcohol too. and removing the bios battery and battery and ac adaptor... just incase it will do a reset of some description. no. still nothing.
edit: the "mute" media button light appears to be lit, however pressing it only feeds a software into the computer, and doesn't turn the light off. i'll try playing around a bit more. edit: i just discovered that if you hold down the m key on alsamixer to mute/unmute the "external amplifier" channel, the light flashes! this is beginning to look promising. edit: if i unmute the external amplifier before i log out, it stays unmuted until i log back in again. what can i do to stop it from muting as soon as i log back in again?
This laptop arrived in the post yesterday and everything on f15 works out of the box except wireless.Digging out an old ethernet cable I was finally able to get wireless working by doing the following: First install ndiswrapper. We'll be using rpmfusion for this so you'll need to
After a reboot it all loaded and worked fine, just remember to make sure the little light on the f12 button is blue, not red. This guide should work for other laptops and other distros as well (though obviously you'll likely need a different driver file to start off with).
I want to switch my laptop from XP to Ubuntu, but right now, i cant risk installing it. i dont want to have it partitioned so i can dual boot, so for now i only run the try-it-out mode.Before i consider installing though, i want to see if i can get everything to work ahead of time, that way im not regreting instalation. I have a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop, with 55GB hard drive and 516MB ram. So far, the trial mode is working great, but the wireless will not work. Ive tried to install the driver, but i am unable to do so. I have looked this up, and i have tried many things, and so far, none have worked.I was wondering if it was just part of the trial thing or not, but it is a Broadcom Wireless BCM4318 driver
When originally installing 11.04 I had problems getting my Ralink 5390 wireless card to work.
Today my computer froze completely and I had to turn it off via the power switch. When I turned it back on, wireless was no longer recognized! My iPod can connect to the network just fine, so it must be an Ubuntu problem. There are no problems with my ethernet connection either.
I researched this and found several threads about blocking and unblocking wireless devices using the rfkill command. Well, unfortunately for me the rfkill command doesn't work. When I type sudo rfkill list or sudo rfkill unblock all, nothing happens; it just returns me to my bash prompt. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling rfkill...nothing.
For some reason, i just cannot get my wireless to work in xubuntu. When i click on the network-manager applet, it only has the wired network tab and VPN connections, there are NO wireless networks displayed. I have also tried iwconfig, which returned
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. and lspci: 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset PCI Express Graphics Port (rev 07) 00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 (rev 03)
I have a compaq nc6400 with the intel Pro/Wireless 3945 ABG card. It fails to find any wireless networks.the IWL3945 driver was installed automaticallyBut when searching for networks none are found, even though on any other computer in the house the network is found.According to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ha...sIntel#miniPCI
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.
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.
I am running openSUSE 11.3 updated with all the latest patches and I cannot connect to my wireless router. I am running Linux Mint 10 on the same type of notebook HP Compaq 6910p and it worked right after the install. If I take off the security WPA & WPA2 Personal I can connect. lspci -v | less shows this for my wireless card.
10:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1000 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 29 Memory at e4000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
I am using the same settings for both notebooks just can't figure out why openSUSE 11.3 won't connect. I get the prompt to key in my password, I've even checked the box to show password to make sure I was keying it in correctly. Everything was good but it just goes right back to the password prompt after it fails trying to connect.
My openSUSE's working unstable and very slowly! Wireless is starting very late.It appears 10min later after i loggen in,and wants me to enter wireless password.This windows is showing up so late,and I can't connect internet before it shows up.
