I am attempting to get my laptop wireless to connect to my router. Wicd sees my router, I enter the known good password, and it reports bad password. Configuring router without wireless security and attempting to connect with wicd without security fails also. Laptop wireless has worked with other another linux distro, and windows.
Environment:Squeeze installed to Dell laptop with wireless: Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)
Wicd reports that it fails with this text:

i am wanting to turn my Debian box into a wireless AP, but for some unknown reason the wireless card won't switch into master mode when i run the command #iwconfig wlan1 mode master i get this Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan1 ; Invalid argument. what does this mean and what do i need to configure/install to get it to work my wirless card is supported i checked it's a zydas chipset using the zd1211rw driver SMC EZ Connect SMCWUSB-G [URL]
I am trying to manually configure my wireless interface similar to how I manually configure my wired interfaces on Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat). I have two wired interfaces that use static IP addresses. I set up these interfaces using /etc/network/interface file. I disabled network manager (it was never working correctly to start with). Now, I want to connect my wireless interface (wlan0) to an unsecured wireless private network. I know/can find out all the information about the wireless network (ssid, etc). Also, I need to do this without disconnecting either of my wired interfaces.
I have looked all over the internet/forums for information about how to set up this interface, but nothing I found meets my need. Is there any way I can use iwconfig or the interface file to connect to this wireless connection? Or is there any other tool that will allow me to manually do this?
I installed Debian 5.04. The Debian installer picked the Ethernet card but not the wireless (Atheros 9285). I followed these instructions to install it (found at [URL]...
But there was no wireless interface shown in the network interfaces entry of hardinfo, even though I wrote modprobe ath_pci in terminal window. My questions are: 1. I followed the instructions regarding updating the madwifi sources, installing them etc. Does this guarantee that apt downloaded and installed the right madwifi driver? 2. Will I be better off if I try to install the driver downloaded from the Atheros website? 3. How can I activate the wireless interface (since the driver is running should not the wireless interface somehow show up automatically)? 4. When I am running Ubuntu 9.10 it picks up the wireless. Can I somehow copy all the files for the wireless from Ubuntu and paste them in the Debian filesystem?
A friend gave me an HP Mini 110 that I can actually use in some situations. I installed Debian 8 with LXDE. It runs well except for the expected lack of driver for the Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I installed wl using the method shown at [URL] ....
It works fine except that it takes very long to set up WiFi at boot (1 min 30 sec or more every boot--this is a rather frail Atom processor) and the WiFi reception seems poor (65% from an excellent router at 25 feet).
I'm thinking of getting a Panda 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter (reportedly using the Ralink RT5372 chipset) and removing the Broadcom driver. I have 2 questions:
1. Could I expect the Panda not to slow my boot time so much? I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell whether there is stable kernel support of this device, although the manufacturer says repeatedly that it works with most Linux distributions.
2. To remove wl is Code: Select allmodprobe -r wl the correct approach?
I have just joined the Debian community, for the past 2 years I have been using Linux Mint (ubuntu), I am now using Linux Mint Debian 64. I have a Lenovo A700 ideacentre with a Broadcom 4313 WiFi card. I manage to get the card working, now I have a new problem. If I suspend the machine the WiFi will not connect on resume. Is there a simple command I can use to getting the connection restarted, or better yet a work around so it will restart on its own?
I have a Broadcom BCM4312 LP-PHY in this machine. I was informed theres an open source driver for broadcom cards (brcm80211), but it doesn't seem to support this chipset. In the spirit of Debian, is there another driver available?
I'm installing Squeeze on on a Dell Latitude D830 laptop with a Broadcom BCM4328 wireless network card, and I'm stuck on getting wireless internet to work. I have the 2.6.32-trunk-686-bigmem kernel. I run KDE and I have knetworkmanager installed to sort the network connections out. Unfortunately, knetworkmanager cannot find any wireless networks for eth2 (the wireless adapter). There is a wireless network, as other equipment can still connect to it.
I've installed the broadcom-sta drivers according to http://wiki.debian.org/wl. When I run iwconfig, I receive the following output: eth2 IEEEE 802.11abgn ESSID:"" Mode:Managed Frequency: 2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate: 14 Mb/s Tx-Power:off Retry min limit: 7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power ManagementMode: All packages received Link Quality=5/5 Signal level=0 dBm Noise Level=0 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 missed beacon:0
I have b43 wireless. In network Configuration on system->administration the interface it appears as inactive it appers in hardware also as b43 associated to wlan0 but i cannot have access to any wireless network. What i have to do to put this b43 to work.
I decided to start of with Debian. I'm having trouble getting my wireless connection to work. I think i need drivers or something, i can't make a wireless connection. And it is a bit difficult for me, as i am new to Linux, and I'm not sure what I'm doing when i am writing these commands.
My wireless card is a Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n
I have been using Raspberry PI a little, so i am familiar with the terminal.
I have this PC that came with W7 installed..i am removing it to install Debian Squeeze.I already have burned the 8 DVDs plus the Squeeze Kde CD.AFAIK, BCM 4312 is a proprietary driver, not shipped with Squeeze, but present as source in Unstable..I have already downloaded the files also... will the built *.deb be enough to enable my wireless, or to i still have to do it by hand. remove confilicting modules, build the module, insert it, put it in the corresponding filder. does the deb install do all that, or do i still have to do it, "the good 'ol way"?
I'm renting a server which comes with 5 IP addresses, but only one network device. From what I can understand I'm able to create aliases by adding entries to /etc/networks/interfaces, I haven't tried I'm in the planning stages. Hypothetically, 192.168.22.30 is my primary IP and I want to set eth0:1 to have 192.168.22.31, and then after that I want to create a virtual machine (using kvm/qemu) that is able to communicate bidirectionally to the internet over eth0:1, and leave eth0 strictly for administrating (not for VM traffic).
The qemu guides I'm finding seem to assume that I want to use TAP or VDE, what I want to use is a sub-ip/alias. One guide I saw had me eliminate everything from eth0 and put it under br0. That would leave me unable to ssh into my server (and unable to administrate). Is there a way I can do something along the lines of: qemu [options] -net [option] -netdev=eth0:1 ?
Is is possible, via iptables or something similar, to bind a service running on a specific port to a specific interface? My case: I use a VPN service for privacy. I would like to have all traffic except ftp and ssh to run over tun0. Ports 21 and 22 will need to be accessible to the outside world (eth0) while the VPN is running.
I just installed latest stable Debian (KDE) on my laptop, Dell Vostro 3400, which uses Broadcom 4313 (I think) wireless controller. I did install the proprietary driver package from Debian called breadcom-sta-common<version no>.deb. I remember it's the same driver I used for my previous Ubuntu installation. I also installed the KDE Network ManagerFront-End and the wireless tab on the manager is disabled (greyed out). I finally tried the steps from Debian Wiki Wireless section and at the end, when I run "modprobe wl", it says "FATAL: Module wl not found". Is there some more steps I need to do?
OS is Debian Lenny. Hardware inspiron 5100. Wireless mini-pci is broadcom 1600.Anywho,did a netinstall and all works well except I can't get the default ip that comes up with the cool wireless strength meter to change. I've tried (almost ) everything. The network gui lets me modify all the values, but is useless. I can get the wireless to work by going in and modifying the interfaces file and getting rid of the avahi-daemon function that discovers the addresses.
So, if I reboot with the re-written addresses in the interface file, and then 'iwconfig wlan0 essid' to my netgear it works. But, no pretty signal strength and I have to manually assign the netgear portion with iwconfig.While installing 'etch' on a desktop I noticed belatedly that if I had no cable connected the install asked me for ip, gateway, etc. Which bring about the questions.Is there a way to change the default values that come up with the automatically assigned ip.Will the netinstall give me a chance to input a manual ip and will it then plow under all the currently installed 'stuff' on the drive. The system runs well except for this.Failing that, is there a step I can take early in the netinstall to modify the data.Or, failing that, is there a way to modify the default if I instead make a disk 1 of lenny and run it?
Recently I was forced to "downgrade" my AMD64 Squeeze installation to 32 bit Squeeze. The installation was (obviously) made from scratch. Everything else seems to be working fine, but there is only one cpu core out of four detected. On AMD64 kernel all four cores were functional. Now what?

Suppose I have both a hardwired and a wireless network connection active on the same system at the same time. Can I tell my browser which one to use? Can I tell other programs which one to use? Or do they choose for themselves> Or does some automatic system protocol select which one to use for them?
I have kernel 2.6.26 and I think I need 2.6.27, but update manager says my system is up-to-date. How do I get an upgraded kernel? I have a wireless card but I cannot find anything in the UI to enable it, or connect to my home net. Would Debian come with a connection manager with an oddball name?
I am having some troubles using iptable rules on two Servers that act as Gateways pointed to one backend server with only one interface.
To be more exact, i have 3 Servers, 2 of those have a public and a private interface, with different public ips but common private interface ( they connect to the same switch ), the last one only has 1 private interface and is connected to that same switch.
Those 2 servers also act as a gateway and a firewall for the private network.
My problem is that i cannot seem able to route traffic from both of those to the third one and back to the same public ip that the request came from ( effectivly using two gateways on the machine with only one interface ).
As a testing scenario i am using ferm for applying iptable rules that forward ssh traffic ( for example ) to the backend server, and it works well when i do it with one gateway.
When i apply something like this in /etc/network/interfaces on the backend server though:
Even though forcing selection of an interface from the backend server ( like curl --interface ) seems to work well, meaning that the request to the curl appear to happen from the correct public ip, i can still only use one of the public ips to access the server with the ferm rules. Ideally i should be able to ssh to the backend server from both public ips using their ferm rules for forwarding traffic to the backend server.
I feel like i am missing some details on routing that should happen on the firewalls as the backend server seems to be able to use both gateways to access the internet and receive replies from it.
