Ubuntu :: Connecting Wireless Using LEAP

May 10, 2010

I'm using ubuntu for about 3 years, and I update my machine each 6 months with the latest version. In the past, in order to be able to connect to IBM wireless network (LEAP) I had to enabled a restricted driver in the "System>Admin>Hardware Drivers" restricted drivers manager. I think it was Intrepid, or (Hardy), that since then the restricted driver to the wireless card is not appear in the restricted drivers manager. I'm using Thinkpad T60, Ubuntu 10.04, the Ethernet controller is Atheros Communications Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01) (attached the output of lspci command) BTW - I have no problems connecting to regular wifi networks.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To The WPA2 LEAP Network

Apr 17, 2010

My college runs a WPA2 LEAP secured wireless network, and I am having problems connecting to it under Ubuntu. I can connect to it just fine under Windows, just not under Ubuntu. Under Ubuntu I can connect to other networks such as my home WEP secured wireless network, so it shouldn't be a hardware or driver issue.

When I do connect to the WPA2 LEAP network it recognizes the network and tries to connect, it pops up the login box for me to enter my username and password, but after I click connect it pops back up again about 10 seconds later. It pops up like this about 3 times total, then after the third time it stops trying to connect and the Wireless Network Disconnected message is shown.

Ubuntu :: Making Leap - Will ATI HD5730 Graphics Card Be Supported

Nov 18, 2010

I can't believe you guys are on 10.10 Already that's amazing been so many changes since I last joined in 2007. I have a few questions regarding my new laptop and Ubuntu I was hoping to get answered before I make the switch from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 10.10 Small tidbit: Using 64x Ubuntu Question #1: Will my ATI HD5730 Graphics Card be Supported?

- When I say supported I also mean some of the features, I Currently use a 62" LCD 1080p HDTV as my Monitor using an HDMI Output to my Surround Sound Receiver. Will I still be able to do this? and will my 5.1 audio output still work? Noticed when I googled it some people were having troubles with 5730

Question #2: Is the Core i7 840qm Supported?

Question #3: Has any large scale break troughs happened with Ubuntu and Gaming? Back when it was Gusty and Hardy there was little high end game choice, wondering if that has made any progress?

Question #4: Have people had Success with Ubuntu and Dell Studio XPS?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless - Connecting To Router Using Wep Key

Feb 15, 2010

I made some tests with a router without security and my internet connexion worked without any problem. But if I activated the wep security (or wpa it is the same behaviour) suse 11.1 won't connect in any way.

I used knetwork manager and traditional ifup method, both failed to connect.

I saw, using iwconfig that in both cases (wpa or wep) I was associated with the AP but dhclient won't work in any way, I was always in the APIPA...

I checked if there weren't any access control (mac address filtering, ...) and all the settings in the router were off to give me full access. Including the firewall set to off. The DHCP feature was on in both cases.

I noticed that the firewall must be on in suse 11.1 otherwise I couldn't have any connections even if I disabled wep or wpa...

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Connecting On 11.3

Jan 24, 2011

I am facing issues in connecting to wifi after upgrading to 11.3 from 11.2. My laptop has Intel 5100 wireless. I had searched through the forum and did find some workarounds(like updating options.conf, removing /etc/NetworkManager directory, using ifup instead of network manager) but all those are not working for me. It will disconnect within a few mins after restaring network service. Has anyone heard about any fix from Intel guys for this and if yes then where can I get that? I had faced hell lot of difficulties while upgrading coz of many unresolved dependencies and don't want to go back to 11.2

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Connecting To AP Via Wireless - 11.3

Jan 30, 2011

I've tried really hard to avoid posting on here, but nothing that I've tried has worked. I just installed openSUSE 11.3 GNOME Desktop. It's my first time using openSUSE, but I do have a little bit of Linux experience. I have the following wireless network card:

0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) c:00.0 0280: 14e4:4315 (rev 01)

I switched control of network setup to YaST (Traditional Method with ifup). It installed the firmware automatically for me. I set up connection configurations as follows:

- Dynamic Address: DHCP
- Operating Mode: Managed
- Network Name: Hetts (I was able to scan and it found my ESSID)
- Authentication Mode: No Encryption (I was using WPA2 and having trouble so for now I've switched my router to use no encryption just to try and get something working)

After setting this up and clicking OK, it should automatically configure and connect, right? I've tried a bunch of things including rebooting and deleting the wireless card configuration and starting over by reinstalling the firmware. I've also tried setting up the connection using NetworkManager and still have the same problem. I have my laptop setup to dual boot, and when I boot in Windows, wireless works perfectly fine, so there is nothing wrong with my hardware or router. Here are some of the outputs I'm getting:


I tried adding the IP address manually too using "ip addr add ...", but still no connection. I can't even ping the access point at Sorry for such a long post, but it seemed to be common for people to not post enough information, so I put as much as I could think of.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Connecting On 11.4

May 23, 2011

I just converted over from Ubuntu, and so am quite new to this new system architecture. Please give me just a little patience I just installed 11.4 on my EEEPC 901. All works great, except the RT2860 wireless, which will search and attempt to connect, but does not ever manage to connect. All updates were installed through Ethernet, and multiple access points have been tried. I also have tried open connection with no encryption.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 64 Bit - Wireless Not Connecting ?

Nov 30, 2010

I have 10.10 32 bit and 64 bit live CDs. Using the 32 bit, I can easily connect to my wireless router. However, the 64 bit CD, while recognizing the wireless connection, will not connect. My computer is 64 bit capable (I ran Karmic and Lucid using 64 bit). I have a 802.11 WiFi using the rt2800pci driver. Any ideas on how to get the wireless working for 10.10 64 bit? I would like to install it, just leery of wireless problems.

Ubuntu Networking :: Not Connecting To Wireless

Mar 28, 2010

I recently installed the latest version of Kubuntu in a dual boot system with Windows XP on a Dell laptop. The dell laptop has a broadcom wireless device, and I was able to set up the driver and get wireless working. Then I booted into windows XP to make a whole bunch of updates/driver installations, and when I booted back into Kubuntu it would not connect to the wireless network. I am pretty sure the device is still active, because it picks up on the wireless networks in the area. But KWallet does not open to ask for my password on booting. Something is not set right, but I can't tell what.

Ubuntu :: Connecting To Wireless Network?

Apr 7, 2011

I am having some trouble getting my computer to connect to my wireless network. There is a wireless icon in the system tray. When I click on the icon I get a list of SSIDs associated with available wireless networks. To connect to one of of those networks I move the cursor over the SSID, the SSID is then highlighted, I select the highlighted SSID, then my computer connects to the selected network.

Sometimes the SSID associated wth my wireless network does not show up on the list. Sometimes it does. Normally the SSIDs on the list are in bold lettering. When the SSID of my network does appear it is in shaded lettering. When I move the cursor over the SSID it is not highlighted and I cannot select it. So you see it is not possible for me to select the SSID of my network and connect to my network.

The computer I am running is a ThinkPad R40. This is the wireless controller on the computer. I got this with "lspci". 02:02.0 Network controller: AIRONET Wireless Communications Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b

Sorry people if here is not the right place to post this message. I've seen lots of people with problems in the wireless but not exactly mine.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Connecting With Wired Or Wireless?

Apr 1, 2010

in short : installed 9.10 on a dell inspiron 600m which has a broadcom bcm4401 ethernet and an intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B mini PCI. At this point, i'm not too picky about which one works (meaning neither of them currently work). nm-tool seems to pick up on both : the broadcom (eth0) is using the b44 driver, State is unavailable; the intel (eth1) is using the ipw2100 driver, it's State is disconnected.

i have encryption turned off, and the wireless sees a number of AP's (including mine).

i'm jumping off the good ship m$ and determined to make this work!

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Router Connecting ?

Jun 21, 2010

I have a computer running Ubuntu, and a MacBook Pro. I need to buy a decently cheap wireless router that I can hook up to my Ubuntu so that it will send wifi signals and I can use the wifi to go online with my MacBook Pro. I was about to get one today, but remembered how Ubuntu is picky about working with things like that. I'm only going to be using it to get signals around the house which isn't that big at all.

So what would be the cheapest and decently efficient wireless routers that I can use which Ubuntu will cooperate with?

Ubuntu Servers :: Connecting To Wireless With A Passphrase?

Aug 30, 2010

So I've connected to my wireless network with the command:

iwconfig wlan0 essid Linksys

But I need to enter my wireless access' passphrase to connect to it. The closest I've come is using:

iwconfig wlan0 key s: PASSPHRASE

...which gives an invalid argument and I've resently found out that this passphrase command is not supported - yet.

Where do one tell Ubuntu to use a passphrase to connect to a wireless network?

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Secure Wireless AP In Jaunty?

Jan 13, 2010

My brother is trying to connect his laptop to his university's secure wireless network and is running into some problems.

He is receiving the following error messages with private info removed:

Jan 13 09:42:52 laptop kernel: [ 91.744131] wlan0: associate with AP
Jan 13 09:42:52 laptop kernel: [ 91.746454] wlan0: RX AssocResp from REMOVED (capab=0x421 status=12 aid=0)


Also, in my research it appears that people that have Wireless problems often install the linux-backports to see if this fixes the issue.
